Princely Beast by painted-bees Princely Beast by painted-bees
"Oh my child, why must you bear your teeth to me. Have you forgotten who you are? Have you any sense of yourself?

Do you think it just, that you alone must be shunned and locked away while your human self be granted the kind of freedom you could only wish for? Is it because you are a monster and he is not? Ha, ha! I could beg to differ. Of course, you wouldn't know the adulterous and hedonistic mannerisms of your human counterpart, would you?

Ah--he's Sidhe through and through, perhaps more so than even you. How he leads good women astray, and leaves them to cry alone. Oh, and if you could only see how he struggles against the urge to feed on a child. But that would be too hard a crime to hide, see. So he eats their pets instead. And blames it on the wolves.

And you, locked away in a silver gilded cage, you've never committed such crimes, have you? You've never prayed on women nor child, not even man lest it be in self defense. Yet you are the monster, the curse, the terrible beast. You, with your well read knowledge and princely mannerism, are the creature they fear. Do you really think it just?

They are human, young Sidhe prince. And so is she. Perhaps there was a time when they revered your sort, but that time is long past, far away, and you were never part of it. We who are not human, are monsters, dear son. You are not human. We are better to come away from the human world of iron and fire, and leave them to their own devices.

Son of Danu, Leave that girl to me. The gesture alone may set you free."



Happy Halloween!

You're welcome sweetie! You have amazing works. :3
I hope I'm not asking for too much but could you explain a bit of this story to me? I know Amber is like a Druid and Lomair is a werewolf but I don't know anything else... :/

you bet!
The story is pretty well following Amber and her efforts to avoid being hunted down by the Sidhe. In doing so, she finds herself a wieldy werewolf, and they work together to find the spell and ingredients required to disguise herself as one of the Sidhe so that she no longer has trouble sleeping in fear of being eaten alive by otherworldly creatures.
Along the way, they run into Banshees, Selkies, and pre-sidhe deities that both help and hamper their progress :]

Not sure if that's enough information or only brings up more questions! Hehe if it does, I'd be happy to answer them! * U*

Okay.. this will probably sound very stupid, but... what is a Sidhe? :3

Ah, the Sidhe are celtic Faeries * U*!! In wolves of Danu they've gone kind of hollow and zombie-like in nature due to the death of their goddess-creator Danu way back when St. Patrick was around. So now the converge on the remaining druids for their magic. * A*!!

Ohhhh I see!!! Ok this seems to be a very awesome story! *u* Can't wait to read it.
About the Sidhe (sorry if I'm annoying you! :/), they are trying to hunt Amber, but... what happens if they catch her? Will she die or will she stop of being able to use magic? Is she trying to protect her life or her magic?

I'm super happy you like it!
Right now, all that's avaliable for reading is in the tumblr blog, but hopefully within the next year or so, we should have the whole thing done. It's being developed for iOS (ipad/ipod), but we would really like to do a browser version as well. that's going be very dependent on how well the kickstarter campaign does once we get that up and running though * U*
