I was matched with "Bele Doette as fenestres se siet," a chanson de toile which I had never heard of before reading quillori's dear author letter and which after hearing I immediately signed up for. It is a really beautiful song, and I highly recommend it even if you don't particularly want to read the fic, if you are at all inclined toward medieval music. quillori helpfully translated the lyrics and linked to youtube here.
I was really intrigued by the idea that if anyone comes who has betrayed love, [that person] will not be able to enter the church. And so I wrote a story about love and nuns and magic. I'm quite pleased by how it turned out.
sprocket did the usual amazing job of beta. Thank you!

Bele Doette is a legend now, a beautiful portrait on the wall of the abbey, a romantic song that is sung by the children in the fields. I am one of the last who can tell you of her as she was, and of the knight who came to her at the Feast of Fidelity.
