Some people believe in the power of logic, or weapons. Tock believes in the power of kindness, friendliness, and hollering at people across empty spaces.

Also, careful Onna, what’s that on your face there…. And careful Bumble, your Mother-Hen is starting to show.

Beauty and the Beast

~ A “Tock the Gnome” fairy tale, of the Brogh – the badger-folk. ~

Extra Happy and Grateful Seven Years of Tock, everyone!

I’m very excited to share this with you, and hope you enjoy it as much as I appreciate your readership.

Fairy tales are obviously a big part of the story, inspiring Tock herself to go on her quest – and the further we get, the more we’re going to see versions of certain fairy tales (that we humans are familiar with) pop up in Tock’s world.

So here’s the first, as a special treat! Hope you all look forward to more of these as much as I do (and as for how they’re going to pop up? Shhhh not telling!).

Thank you again, dear readers. Tock’s journey would not have gotten this far without you.

~ Beauty and the Beast ~

Long ago there lived a fair maiden, with her father and two sisters, in a sett much farther down the shoreline than here. Her mother had vanished before her babes were even walking, leaving their father to raise the girls alone. Still, they brightened his life, and he worked hard at trade with the neighboring setts and other nearby peoples – in order to provide for them a good and prosperous life.

More for “Seven Years of Tock!”

A little context: this is part of a two part set, working backwards from the way things are now.

Now, the characters live in a world where all the peoples are very separated. Gnomes live in technological isolation, Dwarves live buried within the plateau, Orcs keep to themselves (except to battle with the Badgerfolk, and sometimes each other). Everyone else, pretty much forgotten about.

But it was not always so, and while that lost history contains a lot of Love, it sometimes contains distinct tragedies.

Tock will learn more about these in time, but for now, here’s a little taste.

(ALSO, this one contains the oldest of the old character work that I pulled into Tock’s world for backstory, as mentioned here. You can see more of my previous work on them in their folder at my deviantArt site. So that makes this a Throwback Thursday special too, right?)

Thanks for reading, everyone! More bonuses coming up this weekend and into next week, with a special surprise on the actual anniversary day – August 30th – as promised!
