This week's story: "What the River Brings, and What It Takes Away"

By Natalia Theodoridou, appearing in Beneath Ceaseless Skies

Read Natalia Theodoridou’s "What the River Brings, and What It Takes Away"

This week’s story is a brutal-but-gorgeous story about the expectations placed on people who could bear children and how hard some of us fight against those expectations. It feels almost as though it could be a fairytale retelling… except you can’t quite place the fairytale.

It was published in Beneath Ceaseless Skies in July 2019. If you feel like throwing some money around, BCS has a Patreon and a support page.
