She Moved Through the Fair
« on: December 21, 2012, 10:20:06 AM »
So, while awaiting approval, I have a non-adult idea in my head, inspired by the folk song, "She Moved Through the Fair". For those who don't know it, the lyrics (or one version, at least) are below:

My young love said to me,
My mother won't mind
And my father won't slight you
For your lack of kine.
And she laid her hand on me
And this she did say:
It will not be long, Love,
Till our wedding day.

As she stepped away from me
And she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her
Move here and move there.
And then she made her way homeward,
With one star awake,
As the swan in the evening
Moved over the lake.

The people were saying,
No two e'er were wed
But one had a sorrow
That never was said.
And I smiled as she passed
With her goods and her gear,
And that was the last
That I saw of my dear.

Last night she came to me,
My true love came in.
So softly she came
That her feet made no din.
As she laid her hand on me,
And this she did say:
It will not be long, love,
'Til our wedding day


So obviously some sort of love story, although you could put a darker twist on it if you wanted to, with some ghost/dream/whatever element, I'm flexible so we can discuss it if you have a preference or an idea. It obviously works as a one-on-one, but I could see some interesting variations to include others if multiple people have an interest. My preference would be to play the "she" who moved through the fair, but I could be flexible there too, especially if we add in characters to account for multiple people.
