Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Lady Odivere
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Lady Odivere
You missed the climactic ending, leeneia, when the lady gets rescued from her vengeful husband by the silkies, and it all ends happily. Can't rush an epic story like that.

I took it we were supposed to understand there was what they'd now call a backstory, in which the lady had promised to marry the silkie, but got enticed away by Sir Odivere with his Odin Oath, which I think we were meant to understand as a kind of black magic. Perhaps this is just part of an even longer story.
