Going to the village for any reason was by far one of your least favorite things.  Usually it was something your mother did, but whenever she or your father were unable to go, the duty fell to you.  It wasn’t always that way.  When you were younger, a small child, the idea of seeing all your neighbors and the other children was a bit of a treat.  Of course, that stopped being the case as you grew up and, slowly, where you had once felt excitement about interacting with your peers, there was now only dread.  You did not fit in well, for good or ill, and some of them were often keen on reminding you of that.

Prev.

Soon after the ground began to thaw from the last snow, it was time to work on the season’s planting.  One cloudless early morning, your father set out on his daily chore of checking the traps he’d placed in the woods while you went about preparing the garden.  It was not a particularly easy task, but you had never shied away from hard work.  In fact, you were quite fond of this day of the year.  There was something about working the damp earth after a long cold winter, the promise of future harvest, the pride in a job well done.  It made the sweat and mucked up skirts and exhaustion at the end of the day worthwhile.

Warnings: a rather detailed (and sad) birth of a lamb scene, future smut

A/N: The bulk of the fic takes place around a decade or so after the events of the prologue. Also, I’m not a farmer, so don’t take any of the details I put in as straight up facts. and a special thanks to @abovethesmokestacks for being the best sounding board for ideas, ever!


The last snow had not yet melted when the First Spring Moon was upon the village.  The sky was still low and grey, but signs of renewed life began to creep back into the world.  Tufts of grass here, the fluttering of a bird there, livestock beginning to birth.  As was the ancient custom, the village Elders made their way to the Sacred Grove to thank The Lord of Nature for seeing them through the harsh winter.  Offerings of preserved meats and produce were to be left for him, along with evergreen sprigs.  A reminder that his time had come again and to beg favor for the coming season. Yet when the small group of men and women reached their destination, arms laden with gifts collected from every family, they were shocked to discover something already sitting upon the oak stump altar.  

The Woven Birch Crown, with its traditional ivy and myrtle, but accented with lilac and blue hyacinth, the blooms a colorful addition unique to this proposal.

The God of Field and Forest was calling forth a Bride.  And it was the Elders’ duty to read the signs throughout the season and prepare his Chosen to be wed at the First Summer Moon.
