The Wild Swans

Swan's Wing by Penknife

'Every now and then I wonder if she wishes she'd never started that last shirt.' Subtle reworking of 'The Wild Swans', with a wonderful narrator's voice

[Added 11/11/2008; Drama; 1000-2500; The Wild Swans]

Swansong by Lassarina Aoibhell

'My brothers say they remember little of their time as swans. I remember a great deal. I wonder if they lie, if they have deliberately forgotten, or if the memories have stayed a part of me, anchored by the feathers and hollow bones that took the place of hand and arm.' Melancholy & haunting tale of one caught between two worlds
