The Castle
the centre of royal life
The castle sits at the centre of sprawling grounds containing gardens, training arenas, barracks, the royal stables and Lake Lilith, which is fed by the River Twinge. The royal guards which are stationed at various points around the territory will occasionally check fairiesí identities but are usually happy to let visitors wander around, unless the king orders otherwise. Within the castle itself, the west wing is the personal residence of the royal family, the east wing is the home of the court and the servantsí quarters on the lower levels. The castle is practically impregnable and is well-guarded against attack.

darling when I see you, I see me

Joanna looks around her, eyes full of wonder at the raw faerie spirit that so many people conglomerated together had revealed. She hadnít known Shaman was so populated, nor that there were such a variety of people. Faeries with blue hair. Faeries who were short, tall, medium, strong, weak. Faeries who looked like princesses, or like trolls. Her mouth unwillingly pulls itself into a smile. A threatening-looking man with red skin. A child with a crippled arm. Faeries who are enjoying their surroundings, glorying in being inside the castle, faeries who only want to sleep, who are at the end of their tethers. The place teams with them all, some skulking unwillingly, others trying to help.

A familiar hand gently settles on her shoulder.

She turns swiftly, her eyes darting to the hazel ones of the man standing behind her.


She throws her strong, lightly freckled arms around him on impulse and then withdraws swiftly, taking a step back to look him up and down. He didnít look like heíd got caught in the mud, his thin face tired but still strong, his brown hair only a little ruffled. She leans forward and takes his hand softly, wanting to touch him again to make sure heís really there. Her large eyes blink slowly, serious.

You survived.

She canít help but allow a smile to blossom onto her features. She canít fake a smile, but this doesnít require effort, sheís that happy heís alive, and here, with her.

Thereís so many people.

She glances around them, her features settling back into a vague awe at life and their ordinary pattern. She shivers slightly, her shoulders rounding as she coughs, and then her eyes dart back to him.
