RotLC 006: Music

Author’s Note: For whatever reason, Eira did not want to tell me much about life before her siblings (I have a sneaky suspicion that after a few decades, she doesn’t remember it. You’ll see why the further along we get in this).

Disclaimer: Eira, her family, and all associated characters are mine but they are playing the sandbox created by the comic Hurrocks Fardel, now available on WebToons (it’s catching up to where we were, old pages are being redone so it is a consistent look). Whether any of this ends up canon depends entirely on the artist, but I’ll try to be consistent with what information they have provided. ^_^


The familiar sound of Mama’s singing was comforting to Eira even though it wasn’t for her. She didn’t hold as tight to Papa’s shirt as he brought her over to see the bundle her mama was swaying. With an encouraging nod from Mama, Eira pulled back the covers to get a peak.

Ick. She wrinkled her nose. She did not get the appeal. But Eira had abandoned the baby dolls Mama gave her for the play sword from Auntie Oline.

“Hello, Iren,” she said softly to be polite. That earned her a smile from Mama, so it was worth it.
