Fools of Flesh and Blood and Cardboard

Climbing through the narrow, winding passage up to the side entrance, the fool left behind not only the tents of Goth but also his former life. In any case, there was nothing left of that life. They were all dead now - even that witch, Tara. As long as the true Charl was alive, the fool had done his duty and served the usurper, hoping that the rightful monarch would regain his throne. That hope had died with the old man. There was no point in serving the witch. She had been no better than her brothers.

Being a skilled acrobat and conjurer, the fool had managed to access Tara’s quarters at night. One swift stroke with his knife, and her cackling laughter would never again irritate anyone in the tents of Goth.

This had been his last service for the old man: killing the last of his unruly children. But this deed also ended his life in the tents of Goth. He did not need Tara’s vapours to see the future: The noblemen would fight for the throne, and whoever won this power struggle would secretly thank him for removing the witch, but execute him nonetheless for laying his hands on a royal person. Besides, the noblemen did not need a fool. They were all fools themselves.

The side entrance was half forgotten and unguarded. A few coats and masks hung from pegs in the wall. When the fool entered the chamber, he reached out for the first mask, but then he hesitated. His hand crawled into the pocket of his jerkin, touching his secret treasure. The old playing card was taken from an ancient deck of cards that did not only comprise the usual set of four series, but also 22 trumps with mysterious names. One of them was called The Fool, and it showed a young men in a jester’s costume, gazing dreamily up to the sky, while he walked towards the edge of a cliff. The picture had fascinated the fool from the very beginning. He knew that his colleague would not fall down the cliff, but walk across the chasm. The cardboard fool’s mind was up there in the sky, in the world of song and poetry, in communion with the Gods, so that he could safely ignore such mundane things as height and gravity.

There was no use in denying that he actually had spilled royal blood. According to all the laws and commandments that he had grown up with, he was a sinner, marked for death. Would the Gods forgive him?

Turning his back to the coats and masks, he began to walk straight towards the gate. He would try to reach the next settlement without the aid of the protective garment. If he died, that would only be the rightful punishment for killing a member of the royal family. But wasn’t it also possible that he walked across the chasm just like the cardboard fool?

He commended his life to the hands of the Gods.

Hugbot I love the Tarrot symbolism and you use it so well here. A lovely philosophical story!
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

Wow! What a way to finish April! Thank you, Hugbot.

Who knew that a B7 fanfic that doesn't even mention our heroes could be such a fascinating read?

And the shops are now shut as it's May. Standby for a new challenge...

Hugbot- another gem. Isn't it great that we are 'mining' all of the series now? Even minor characters like the Fool. Wonderful reading this month people!

Just before I lock the thread, I wanted to say how much I've enjoyed everybody's stories this month. If I haven't responded personally to everyone, it's because I was abroad for the first two weeks of April and then frantically scrambling to catch up for the second two. And thanks for the kind feedback on my own rushed contributions!

This month has produced another great range of stories - some chilling, some moving, some hilarious - plus some interesting off-piste discussions of PGPs, garden sheds and jacuzzis Wink

I'll be collating the stories into a proper collection in due course, but for now this thread is closed.

Looking forward to seeing you on the May thread!
