Aseleth, one and all! Greetings! Welcome to The Curse of Feylund.
There’s a whole story behind how this fan fiction came to be, and I could doubtless go on for several paragraphs detailing it. But I won’t do that. You didn’t come here to listen to me ramble on about my writing adventures. You came here to read, and I’ll let you get to that soon. First though, there are some things you need to know.
Firstly, this story is a direct sequel to Dilmir: A Tale of Feylund. Dilmir was written back in 2013, and two sequels quickly followed, together making up the Feylund trilogy. However, shortly after posting those stories, I decided to delete them. The theme didn’t sit right with me, and I believed at the time that I would convert those stories into novels one day.
I now know that is very unlikely. In mid-2019, I decided to repost Dilmir, the first story in the trilogy. I said that I would have to look at the two sequels, and possibly edit them, before I felt comfortable reposting them.
And finally, following some world-class hemming and hawing, we’re here. I eventually had to just rewrite the entire story, instead of my original plan of merely editing the original sequel. I also plan on rewriting the final story in the trilogy, finally posting the Feylund trilogy once more in its entirety. If you’re interested in exactly why I’ve decided to take this somewhat more laborious path, there will be an Author’s Note directly following this Introduction, explaining just that.
Onto this story itself. It’s usually around this point in the introduction that I start warning you about what you’re going to read. I’m not going to do that this time. This story has no major flaws that I’m aware of, and should just be a good straightforward read. Obviously it has some issues, but these are minor. This story is a sequel, and there is a recap of Dilmir following this Introduction, which should serve to jog your memory. If you’ve never read Dilmir though, or if it’s been a long time, I suggest you do so before reading this story. There are just some things in the story which I can’t convey completely in a recap.
That’s about all there is to say though. Sit back, allow your mind to immerse yourself in the world of Feylund, and prepare for a tale of elves and magic.
