Dreams of Ydalir- Chapter 1 - Fawn Birth Story


I was born on the night of the Winter Solstice, with a big full moon hanging low on the horizon. Some say that my birth was lucky because I was born inside the caul, the birth sack. My mother told the midwife that this was a sign that I had been born again and that my fyglia or spirit fetch was strong. She said that she birthed both a human child and a deer spirit that night, one of her family’s long lineage, and so she named me Fawn, as so many before her had gifted their children with deer names…

 I have always felt a close connection to the deer, maybe because so many told me that my mother believed them to be family. I have admired them, their beauty and grace, their familial ties. They have always seemed ethereal or magical and yet, I suppose in a way, kindred.

If you like what you are seeing and reading, remember you can get the whole chapter + prologue and 4 images for just $1 through the month of October 2016. Visit our Patreon Project for more info!
