    Summary

    “The song says a mantle or a maidenhead, but as far as I can see you have neither of those. How about we strike a deal witcher?”

    “I don’t bargain with the likes of you, fairy.” The witcher growled. He was tired from the journey to Carterhaugh and had no interest in playing games with the fey, no matter how pretty.

    “You don’t have a choice, witcher. You came to Carterhaugh of your own free will,” the fairy Jaskier then more sung than spoke: “You pulled the rose, you broke the tree. For that you must pay.”

    A retelling of the ballad Tam Lin wherein Jaskier is Tam Lin.

    Summary

    Everyone knew the story: Once upon a time, humanity ruled the earth, but our self-destructive nature led to disaster. Climate crisis, war, disease, and radioactive dead zones killed enough of us to threaten extinction.

    But then, in our bleakest hour, the Fae stepped out of legend and into Southern California. Their magic cleansed the land, calmed the skies, and protected us from our own worst impulses. We showed our gratitude with obedience and, once every seven years, by surrendering an innocent life.

    Cassian thought the story was bullshit.
