    Summary

    You can hear the singing? is written on the paper, Hui’s usual chicken scratch replaced with strong, clear characters in his urgency. When Wooseok nods, Hui takes the book back and writes something else, eyebrows drawn together in a small frown. What does it sound like? Hui’s second message says, and underneath it, are two words, written a few spaces apart. One says Clicks and the other says Words. Wooseok points to ‘words’ and Hui’s eyebrows shoot up, surprise flicking across his face. He writes again, scribbling furiously before scratching it all out and flipping to a new page, trying again. Do you know what it is?

    Wooseok shakes his head, raising one shoulder slightly and tilting his head towards Hui as if to say, ‘Do you?’

    -

    The aquarium is gearing up to open a new exhibit. One night, Wooseok hears something, or someone, singing in the tank.

    Summary

    Four for the seasons, five for the sun.

    Disgraced and destitute, High Lord Tamlin had all but surrendered to a life in exile—until a human child and a thorny woodcutter stumbled into the ruins of the Spring Court, changing his fate forever.

    Now, Tamlin has rescued his mate from the Under, but the war has just begun. As the Autumn Court prepares to seize his throne and conquer his lands, Tamlin will face his toughest challenge yet: to recover his magic and regain the trust of the mighty Heart Guardian of the Spring Court. Together with his mate and his daughter, he'll have to venture across hills and glens, haunted lochs and carnivorous forests, to restore the honour of his ancestral home—before it's too late.

    Meanwhile, the battle for the Summer Court's throne rages on, and Cresseida, Princess of Summer, is impossibly torn between her love for her family and her loyalty to her people. And as news travels of her return to Prythian, she finds herself standing toe-to-toe with a very powerful enemy—Rhysand, High Lord of the Night Court. With the blood feud between them escalating, Cresseida must make the choice to yield or fight. To sit down, or stand up.

    To bow, or to conquer.

    Summary

    Every now and then Yukio would do something different, try to break his routine, like he was doing now.

    He had heard of increasingly frequent occurrences of people vanishing from Draíocht Beach. All of these were always followed by a legend that made him roll his eyes just recalling it. Evidently, the townspeople - who were all dull farmers and fishermen who were just this superstitious - believed there were kelpies snatching people up at night, dragging them into the ocean, and killing them.

    Yukio didn’t know much about kelpies - just that it was a legend that involved horses that could turn into fish, or something like that.

    Curiosity had gotten the best of Yukio, though, so he dressed himself in a comfortable sweatshirt and pants he had rolled up to his mid-calf. The air at night in October was cool, but he didn’t want the nightmare of getting sand out of shoes - or anywhere, really - so he slid on sandals before exiting his house and setting out to Draíocht Beach.

    Summary

    She could go, now—steal away through the dark until her feet touched pebbled sand and give her child the chance of a better life. But the thought of dropping her baby into the arms of the ocean and being unable to follow makes the pains that much worse, deep in her heart instead of in the cradle of her belly. Eabha never wanted her husband’s child, but the child is hers nonetheless. To love and keep, she knows, but never to claim.

    She closes the door and throws the bolt back into place. The ocean will welcome them another day.

    Summary

    If you steal a selkie’s skin, you effectively force them to marry you. It turns out if you save one from drowning they’ll do it themselves.
    Or; it’s really, really hard to get the smell of fish out of, well, anything. But mostly bedsheets.

    Summary

    There are tales that pass down from mouth to mouth, traveling through time, and kept whole only by those who have heard it spoken out loud. Folk legends take on lives of their own, becoming bigger than what they truly are. Yet sometimes, sometimes, there is truth to them. The stories become reality and lives become changed forever.

    This is the story of the boy with golden hair.

    Summary

    His Mutter, rest his soul, told him to bear shelter to all travelers. The Lord will protect their home and lands for all their gracious deeds. There were far and few visitors when he was a child, but his mother always seemed like a good judge of character.

    He turns to glance back at the glowing fire, and it has piddled down to a smolder, the dying embers reflecting off the sunken eyes of boar high above the fireplace. The glass eyes practically seem to move with his own movements as he reaches for the wooden bar.

    “Please, it is cold.” A gentle voice whispers beyond the pine.

    Summary

    Fionn Gill is assigned a position as village witch in the remote rural village of Greenmoor, which is... not ideal, given he's closeted and much more of a city guy anyway. Once he's there, though, he becomes wrapped up in the mystery of why the position was open in the first place, and resolves to uncover what happened to his predecessor. In the meantime, though, the villagers keep him busy with their magical ailments! Read through Fionn's journals as he works to uncover the truth.

    --

    These are the journals I've created during my first play-through of Apothecaria, a solo journaling TTRPG by Anna Blackwell. Each week will be divided into three chapters: one for the ailment and two for the downtime. Will update 3x/week until we've caught up, and then will update at the same time as the Tumblr.
