“When the sea-foam is red at the end of the Earth, only then will you see me again ~ until that time, you will wander the world and all that you touch will turn to iron...”

Once upon a time, there was a forest... 

In the forest, strange changes can take place. There may be kings and queens and princesses and witches, and common folk going about their business, not to mention all the animals. A lot is going on. Love can be found, and lost, and found again. There’s talk of the farthest sea, of a desert of fire beyond the forest, but these are probably just rumours...
