    Summary

    Most unusually, _not_ in Tolkien/Silmarillion fandom.

    Fan poetry as tribute to the creators who have shaped me throughout the years. I have been writing these, very intermittently, for a while, and figured they should have a home somewhere.

    Chapter 1: For you, a doorway... (Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children, and the fantasy worlds we build to escape into.)
    Chapter 2: You think you're giving me the world (Frontier sci-fi (think Firefly), and the heroines who are expected to lose their thirst for adventure once they are married to the heroes.)
    Chapter 3: A fairytale of rockets, incomplete (Ray Bradbury and classic sci-fi, and building your own fantasies and seeing breathtaking wonder in rocket launches.)
    Chapter 4: The witch who used to haunt Potrero Hill (Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere, and tent cities under overpasses, and people who have fallen through the cracks.)
    Chapter 5: Red shoes. (A very different take on the classic fairy tale.)
