Fairyland Chapter 13

New Fairyland Chapter!

Chapter 13: Autumn is the Season Where Everything Changes

When they are in a great hurry, little girls rarely look behind them. Especially those who are even a little Heartless, though we may be quite certain by now that September’s Heart had grown heavier than she expected when she climbed out of her window that long ago morning. Because she did not look behind, September did not see the smoky-glass casket close itself primly up again. She did not see it bend in half until it cracked, and Death hop up again, quite well, quite awake, and quite small once more. She certainly did not see Death stand on her tiptoes and blow a kiss after her, a kiss that rushed through all the frosted leaves of the autumnal forest, but could not quite catch a child running as fast as she could. As all mothers know, children travel faster than kisses. The speed of kisses is, in fact, what Doctor Fallow would call a cosmic constant. The speed of children has no limits.

There is audio--I have not been able to fill in the missing audio chapters yet. I'm finding it really difficult, borderline impossible, to do audio while my allergies are so bad. It takes me three times as long, having to stop and sneeze and sniffle, and then longer to edit those things out of the file. I promise I will get to those chapters as soon as my health allows, and beg your pardon in the meantime. Mea culpa.

ACK! Archive.org is down, so the audio will go up as soon as it's back!


EDIT: All's well in audioland. Chapter available for your listening pleaure.
