Tock and the Manticore

In honor of what’s going on today, and the days and years to come. Of what some of us fear will come to pass.

May we all embrace Love, and be kind to one another.

(Inspired by the famous fable “The Lion and the Mouse” and the historic tale of Androcles. And by a friend who suggested I include this tale as part of Tock’s own herosim.)

Hope in Peacenight-time

A short winter story with Tock and Eleanore (previously pictured here and here), pre-Rescue Quest.

Though winter usually inspires her, Tock finds herself upset one year, as romance after romance fails. In her beloved legends, magic (and love) is grand and dramatic. But sometimes, it just takes a friend’s realistic outlook to help one dream again.

Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks, always, for reading ❤
