So much time alone. Even here in Faerie we are touched by the current human pandemic; our tourism has ceased for the foreseeable future, as we are not a wholly magical set of Realms like the Fantasy Faire, and our tourist base is largely in Realms where travel is heavily controlled.

This life of dreams will come to an end soon: I feel it, and I fear it. I have wasted my summer, my power, wishing and hoping to be elsewhere, and now… Now Mabon is upon me. I feel Autumn clutching at my heels with every step I walk. And the future looks darker still, but …
