    Or: Everyone is now a fairy

    Long years ago, the whole of the House of Lords was given wings and the gift of immortality. Over the centuries, Fairyland can grow dull, and every so often a fairy or two will make their way into the mortal world. Whether they cause the antics that inevitably ensue around them, or are simply good at finding trouble, their tales have been told many times. Perhaps Mr. W. S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan were fairies themselves, or perhaps they happened upon their collection of stories by pure fanciful chance: whatever the origin, the pair's operettas will forever be linked by their exploration of some small parts of the extended lives of these fae.

    Summary

    Sitting next to her, he says, “What are you doing out here? It’s dangerous to be so far away from everyone.”
    “Do not worry,” she says, offering a smile as assurance, “this is my land. It will protect us."
    “Will you allow me to escort you back to the tents?” he asks. “I’ve just had the fire built up, and it’s rather cold tonight. I wouldn’t want you to freeze.” His hands fidget in his lap while his gaze remains steadfast on her face, avoiding her exposed legs. She supposes he’s rarely seen the full dress of Eorlingas women, who don’t often have need to wear leather breeches and split skirts anymore.
    “Of course.”

     

    On the eve of battle, Éowyn formally, and cordially, invites Merry to her tent. Among other things.

    Summary

    "The thing about being able to tell what people are feeling and thinking is that people generally don't like that."

    Jim can't deal with his problems, so he deals with everyone else's instead. Spock can't deal with his emotions, so he pushes them all away. Starfleet can't deal with a post-Kelvin universe in any way except badly.

    And what exactly is t'hy'la, anyway?

    A story about dangerous conspiracies, doomed crusades, inadequate coping, imperfect control, important connections, and taking care.

    Bloody amazing. Even if you want to, don't read it again - really really well written depictions of mental health difficulties. Just remember its glory.
