When the World was Young by Katyok When the World was Young by Katyok
When all the world was very young,
And mountain magic heavy hung,
The supermen would walk in file,
Guardians of a loveless isle.
And gloomy browed with superfear their tragic endless lives
Could heave nor sigh
In solemn, perverse serenity, wondrous beings chained to life.
 
Strange games they would play then.
No death for the perfect men.
Life rolls into one for them.
So softly a superGod cries…
 
-David Bowie, The Supermen

Llewelys' and Yarbonel's clothes, wigs and faceup by me.

Thank you! In my mind (and story) the elves of legends are an ancient extraterrestrial spacefaring race, and all the folklore is just a reflection of the early humans' encounters with them. I thought these lyrics are very appropriate. :)
