"Two Girls"

Two girls, a he and a she, married along the far shores of the Shadow Sea. They were both very small, delicate in the wrists and ankles, light enough to fly. Frost kissed their eyelashes. They lay in the snow, dressed all in martyr's white.

We stoned then to death at dawn. The blood was very beautiful.

Anybody know a good feminist market looking for a dark little spec fic story?

This has bounced everywhere, always with a lot of hemming and hawing about yea, it's pretty good, sure, but too damn "didactic."

Damn me and my silly little political stories...

5 comments so far. What are your thoughts?

We're still looking for stories for Say... what's the combination? (Which will debut at Wiscon) If it in any way could be seen as an interpretation of the theme.

We want to see work about keys and answers, and about unifications and joinings

ha. Oh, wow, well, that *would* be an interesting stretch for this story. There's certainly some unwanted joining and unification..

Don't you think Ursala K. LeGuin has already written this?

Who's "Ursala "?

Better stop the presses, in any case! Every story about women and gender has already been written!

Phew! There goes my wanna-be career. I can rest easy knowing it's all been said before.
