The Longest Short Walk Home
Warning The blank verse story below might make folks uncomfortable. It tells the story of a woman, different from others in her town, and a brief moment she endures on her walk home from a late night at her pub job. It shines a light on the shame we might feel when we are judged… Continue reading
by Lord Bartleby von Tinkleton, Esq., Guest Columnist. Of course there have been rumours that I’ve recently chosen to spend time in the Fae Realm of Awenia. I admit, I had lunch there. And in fact, I have grown quite fond of the Realm, which was first brought to my attention when an acquaintance suggested… Continue reading
“I know this must look like a small place to you. You see what you can perceive with whatever perceptions were given you by the gods.

Not a full day after I had that weird dream about the talking frog, Bran informed me that we’d received an invitation to the latest theme event for one of my favourite off-Realm faires, Enchantment. And you’ll never guess what the theme is! OK, probably you already guessed, given the title and lead-in here. It’s The Frog Prince.… Continue reading
