  2. Summary

    Dark fantasy oneshots based on Maurice Ravel's Gaspard de la nuit. Gaspard de la nuit was a series of prose poems originally written by Aloysius Bertrand and inspired by various painters such as Rembrant and Callot. Ravel picked three of these poems to compose his infamously difficult piano pieces: Ondine, Le gibet, and Scarbo. These three poems in turn have inspired this series of fics, each following both the poems and the musical works.

    Ondine tells the story of a creature named Ondine, who attempts to lure a man to his death with promises of love but ultimately fails. This is the most fantasy-like, plot-centered, lyrical piece in the series.

    Le gibet tells the story of a hung man from a tree on a hill, while in the background a bell tolls. Unlike Ondine, this piece is more morbid and sombre.

    Scarbo tells the story of a nightmare, a twisted creature that dances in a man's bedroom. This final piece is the most psychologically thrilling and disturbing, meant to evoke heightened emotions of paranoia and fear.

    Warnings for morbid, dark, and disturbing themes and descriptions.
