bright night sky

Guarding the sky is a three-woman job. 

something that makes me a bit sad/disappointed in terms of fantasy settings inspired by german folklore: no one talks about pet dragons.

i can only speak for east germany, but over there there are tales of farmer’s wives that have a dragon that helps them with their work.

usually these dragons get fed with coal and food leftovers. if they’re well-fed, they happily do their assigned work.

that includes helping the wife by perfectly cooking the food & protecting the house from fire or being struck by lighting.

some of these dragons were also said to be able to turn coal into gold pieces for those who treat them well. aka, feed them a ton.

also they tend to live in the ovens or the fireplace/chimney of the house. I suspect generally warm places.

proof of this theory were „dragon sightings“ over farmland, which were actually just bright comets in the night sky.

generally it was said that a farmer’s wife had a dragon, if their farm was doing especially well or their products were „unusually“ tasty.

i love how people went form „oh these people are richer/better at their job than me“ to „that must be because they have a pet dragon!“

i know i talked about this before in length at least once, but hey. i will keep talking about this until i see it in a video game at least! >:c

Bright as the Night Sky (Part 1):

So here is part one of my fan fic! Hope everyone enjoys it as much as I have writing it! I can’t wait to get to the interesting part because it is literally my imagination come to life!

Summary:

Feyre is busy trying to think of a creative gift for her 100th anniversary with Rhysand, and for once the inner circle is out of ideas. It’s only until Rhysand and her are invited to witness a rare performance by the people of Velaris that she finds her muse. But what will remain to celebrate once she discovers a dark secret.

The setting takes place WAY after ACOWAR and gives insight into the life of the inner circle and Feyre’s sisters, as well as the High Lord and Lady of the Night Court. It does stem from my first fan fiction Safe at Last but is not necessary to read to understand.

WARNING: This has been written BEFORE I have read ACOWAR (So there is Elucien and Moriel) and Lucien is still viable for the Autumn Court and it’s staying that way (because I don’t want to dethrone Helion) aannnddd I love these ships too much to destroy them so its STAYING THAT WAY.
