Sentence of the Day: Mejhiren

Mejhiren has a tumblr called Porchwood where she posts drabbles from a fable-like universe. Peeta is the sole victor of his games and he hires Katniss to be his servant in a vast log house on the other side of the lake. He shows up in her home one night clad in a huge bearskin and whisks her away on an enormous sleigh. Since the opening chapter, it’s been hundreds of thousands of words.

From her multi-chapter Everlark When the Moon Fell In Love With the Sun (Katniss is preparing a deerskin which she plans to gift to Peeta):

  • Opening a deer skull requires a certain amount of brawn as well as accuracy, especially if you plan to make use of the antlers, and my nerveless hands are in no condition for making precise cuts, let alone ones that might impact the quality of Peeta’s deerskin.

There is great precision in all of Mejhiren’s writings and that’s why self loves it so.

Fairy tales are fairy tales but they must feel absolutely real.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
