After the meeting, Bregðask went to school. By the end of the day, his tunic was torn, he had at least three bruises that had blossomed and healed within a few hours and a bit of a headache. The pain in his chest had turned into a stabbing pain and forces his attention towards the sea. He ignored it and went to visit Aslog the way he had every Friday since she had been pronounced doomed to die of whatever mysterious plague she had contracted. He suspected that it was the same one that his uncle would have died from (more…)
Bregðask spent the night reading the letter from his mother and drafting a reply. In all the years he’d been receiving these unaddressed letters, he’d never asked why she never addressed it to him or signed her name. She once said that he would know her name when they met formally and he’d left it at that. He assumed it was a custom of where she was from along with everything else, and maybe it was also a ploy to keep their correspondence a secret. Maybe the scent is the signature? As dawn rose over the next day, Bregðask reviewed (more…)
Bregðask leaned against the post of an awning as Hilda shopped for things for dinner just as she always had every Týrdøgr afternoon for as long as he remembered. The marketplace was housed in the island’s main square, and just like every Týrdøgr in the late winter just after skammdegí was ending, Svein was delivering the address that Bregðask had written just a few days prior about how they fared and what everyone needed to know for the upcoming summer. Around him were people of Calder and people from beyond the shores of the archipelago with cameras, apparently fascinated by (more…)
It was dawn, and Bregðask hadn’t slept a moment. He sighed softly and put his head down on his working table so the words of the speech he was working on were nothing more than letters stretching out into the unintelligible. It was cold as the heart of winter hadn’t quite let go and wouldn’t for another few months. Skammdegí was over, so there was light in the sky during the day, but not enough to warm the air. It wouldn’t matter. The annual average temperature on Calder ranged from a frigid negative ten degrees Celsius to a balmy ten (more…)
On the island of Calder, names were chosen based on the time of the year a person is born. If your birthday coincided with someone of your family line, you were named in their honor. Unfortunately, the closest ancestor in a young man’s line is a name that will haunt him for his entire life and all the superstition that came with it. No matter how his mentor and father figure claims that it is a name to be worn with pride, he knows that the look in his father’s eyes, the hilmir of their island and leader of the Rekkr Vinfengi, is everything but pride.
He only had to hold out until he turned twenty years old so he could be legally old enough to travel beyond the archipelago and maybe leave the horrible name behind.
Unfortunately, nothing is ever that easy.

The sky was dark with the beginning and end of the sense of peace the planet had enjoyed for centuries. Thunder hummed on the brink of ripping open the clouds, and lightning twisted, scurrying through the skies as if hurrying to catch a seat to watch the match. Evey duel had always been this way, and now, their usually joyous capital turned somber and dim-eyed to the center of the great stadium of past kings. On one side sat the chosen king and his family. His wife and three sons were there to support him and pay witness to their (more…)
