Soo.... What do YOU want me to write today?

Taking prompts again... on a general theme of gender, sexuality, and how they go funky.

I'll write at least 150 words on everything I get between now and this time tomorrow. And, as always, tipping guarantees more wordage - and helps me buy the lovely giraffe carpet. For more information, my Donor landing page is here (and on LJ)

Jordan's older sisters had all, when they were young, old enough to be maidens but still pure, gone down to the river. Each of them, in turn, had received the unicorn's bloodly blessing, as did every girl of the village, their village and every hamlet along the Pure River. Their blood blessed the fields, kept the water clean despite the factories upstream, kept the crops coming. Their blood made their bellies rise with unicorn babies; there wasn't a household along the river that didn't have a white-haired child in their midst.

Every spring, the girls who had come into their womanhood went down to the river. Every spring but this one, when there were no new maidens, no fresh pure blood to shed. The water was beginning to show the taint of the factories; the crops were slow in coming up. And their town had no virgin girls to give.

Girls bleed in the water, men sweat in the fields. So he had always been taught. But there were no girls, and Jordan was still pure. His beloved, Daisy, had died, as girls did, now and then, of the blood she had given to the unicorns and the small child she had born. In her memory, in the need of the fields and his family, the needs of her tiny changeling baby, Jordan went to the river in the moonlight, and knelt before the unicorn he found there.

"Take what you will," he told the beast - a mare, he saw; weren't they always stallions? Stallions, to leave their changeling children. "Take what you need."


I find that somehow cute and adorable. *odd*

*smile* I'm rather fascinated by the setting I just made up, truth be told.

I do too! Great setting.

Like so many of your drabbles, there should be more.

I like this. It contains interesting premises and much potential.

Thank you very much! I'm intrigued with where this could go, too.

Whoa. I should have been keeping a closer look over here on the LJ post. Very intriguing.

I'm kinda really hoping this one gets sponsored. Maybe I should flog this one for sponsorsihp, too.
