[Prompt Calls] The Woods Between The Worlds

This is an informal prompt call based on the idea of 'Woods between the worlds'. I actually have a setting in mind for this prompt call, appropriately titled the same thing, but I am leaving this call open ended and you can throw whatever you want at me as long as it is based around the prompt above.

This is, in part, to help me explore the world that is in my head. I'm looking forward to poking it and want to do things, I'm just a little lost on where to start, so I come to you lovely people!

Leave me as few or as many prompts as you'd like and I will answer them as quickly as I can.

Feel free to advert if you feel so inclined or leave me tips over at toomanytongues at gmail via Paypal but those are far from necessary and I will answer as many of your prompts as I can regardless of whether you advert or tip.

Prompts

I loved that scene in C.S. Lewis.

1) Willow is the tree of sorrows. It weeps for worlds that are no more.

2) Oak is the tree of endurance. It grows above worlds destined to last a long, long time.

3) In the Woods Between the Worlds there lies a pool without a tree. The water is clear and calm. Half-buried in the creamy sand of the bottom is a golden stone.

This is sad and lovely and a little hopeful. Thank you!

Rebirth

I love the association, and the feel of /life/ in the whole piece, but the idea of Willow for rebirth... my brain just went, "YEAH!"

Prompt

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer 2014-05-29 08:46 am (UTC)(link)
What happens if one is lucky enough to catch a green leaf from a tree in the wood between the worlds... before it touches the ground?

Conversely, what happens to anyone who deliberately breaks off branches, or is that even possible?

WONDERFUL!

I love that you have so /many/ icons. I tend to spell mine as I-con, emphasizing singular, as a personal joke.

I am not expecting you to use all of them, but go for any that inspire you, and feel free to combine:

Wishing on stars

Bonfire

Taking shelter from the rain

The view from the treetops

The local flora and fauna

There's beauty and there's danger here

Further from our origin, no closer to our destination

The trees grow so thick
You can barely see through
But the forest bestows the simplest of truths

Don't you know, son of earth, that I am not one of yours?

Not all who wander are found.

The stars are the flowers of the trees,
the asteroids are crumpled bark,
and a gigantic space woodpecker
blasts supernovas from living rock.

If I ever join the SCA and am granted arms, I have a blazon ready and a motto for underneath:

De langues tant, de temps si peu
