fic: more than all the world (chapters 3 & 4)

And here're chapters three & four...

Title: More Than All The World (The Werewolf’s Tale) (chapters 3 & 4 of probably 8) (chapters 1 & 2 here)
Author: luninosity
Rating: probably R by the end, but PG for now

Word Count: 4,177
Disclaimers: characters are not mine; only playing with them for fun! For sources, see the Notes.
Summary: an Erik/Charles story very loosely based on Marie de France’s 12th-century French werewolf tale, in which Erik is the man transformed into a wolf (he’ll get changed back by the end, it’s not that kind of story, though they very definitely do fall in love) and Charles is a king and eventually there’s a happy ending. Also, a villain’s nose gets bitten off.
Notes: I am using the Robert Hanning/Joan Ferrante translation of Marie’s lais for reference and English translation aid; the title, opening and closing quotes, and all chapter titles, come from that version of “Bisclavret”. Written for the xmen_tales fairy tale fun.

(chapters 3 & 4: chess-playing with wolves and the importance of roasted chicken)
