Finally. I've been fighting with this one on and off for over a year and a half now. It's as good as it's probably going to get here, so I figured I'd call it good. Heh.

Title: Heartwood
Rating: PG-13
Universe: Wyrldwood
Characters/Pairings: Gethyd, Laerin, Haelin, Caerwynn, Taelian knights including Elys the quartermaster. Gethyd/Laerin, Haelin/Caerwynn.
Summary: The wyrldwood, the last forest that stretches along the northern edge of the world along the boundary between it and chaos, is nothing any sensible person wants to tangle with. Though it's been quiet for the last four centuries, since the last great incursion of chaos was vanquished, it still evokes nothing but madness and monsters for most people. Unfortunately, when your partner and the love of your life is a wyrldwood fae by birth, sooner or later even the most sensible person might end up daring its confines. With Laerin as her partner, Gethyd has little choice, and all she can do now is weather the cavalcade of secrets the promise of that vast northern forest draws forth.

Warnings/Notes: Fantasy, fae/faeries, elves, forests, magic, chaos, love, comrades in arms, confrontations, meeting the parents, backstory, war, sacrifice, body horror, rescue, unicorns, champions, falling in love, hope, romance, confessions. WARNINGS mostly for angst and insecurities and tragic backstories, with a bit of body horror in one particular case. Also, for clarity's sake, 'faer' in the story mostly means 'male fae'. Um. Sorry about that.
