The Disenchanting of Princess Cerridwen
In September of 2009, I learned about the Outer Alliance, a group advocating queer and queer-friendly fiction, and supporting the authors that write it. In its honor, I’m releasing under Creative Commons my story “The Disenchanting of Princess Cerridwen”.
“Cerridwen” is set in the same universe as my novel Lament of the Dove, and is extremely early backstory for its Big Bad. But it’s not really her story–rather, it’s the story of two young women, Cerridwen and Damhnait, whose city is overcome by the eruption of a young elven mage’s magic. Transformed into a male form, Cerridwen must choose between accepting the seemingly peaceful facade the magic has forced upon her–and risking losing the love of Damhnait if she does.
