    Summary

    The Scottish fairy tale Katie Crackernuts, as it happened in the 500 Kingdoms. In which: - Two stepsisters get along just fine, thank you; - A prince succeeds in writing good poetry, Godmother Elena has concerns about a coworker, A lot of people on a long trip speak in (I hope) not-too-impenetrable accents, A unicorn shows up quite late in the game and fails to advance the plot at ALL, the Tradition manifests itself more physically than usually, and the matter is concluded to most people's satisfaction. With a brief guest appearance by a creation of Christina Rosetti's.

    I'm told my stories get moving slowly - if you like plot more than character you may want to start at Chapter 4 and see if that works.

    An extremely well-crafted story in the style of Mercedes Lackey's 500 Kingdoms series.

    Love it. I think this is as well written as the best of Lackey's stories in this series. Better than The Snow Queen or Beauty and the Werewolf

    Love this tale. The jealousy of a step sibling, as egged on by Tradition, and the resistance to it, is great. 'The Goose Girl' tale, here referred to as The False Bride and The True Bride, is borrowed from, as Tradition initially wants to force the sisters down this path; and the method of confession for someone who has vowed to keep silent is borrowed from here as well, midway through the early part of the story.

    Fairy Tale analysis is always part of this fandom's source. And this tale incorporates such as skillfully as Lackey herself.
