Tligg is a fairly average elf - and this is the story of his how his world came to include Craagen. It’s a story of friendship and love, as well as the things that happen in between and around such intense feelings. Meeting by pure chance, their first encounters ended up being an intense experience. But is that enough to lead to something more?
If life was there for the taking, then it might look a lot like Kay Walker’s life. A good family with liberal and accepting attitudes, doing impressively well at college both on and off the field, a big circle of friends, and a promising future.
Of course, there are a couple of problems with this picture. Firstly, it wouldn’t make a very interesting story. And secondly, perhaps more importantly, it’s not quite true. Or at least, it’s not the whole picture.
