"The Elf and the Lady" has had nine chapters to get going properly now, so I'll say a few words.

I find it interesting that HAL has taken the elf legends, generally associated with a medieval civilization, and placed them in a more or less modern context. So, what happens when a modern, sexually liberated, human female finds herself in elven society, with attitudes straight out of the dark ages? There are likely to be some changes made, and interesting ones at that.

And what happens when a horny, late-teen (well, 100 is late-teen for elves, it seems) elf winds up in the modern world? For a start, given elven sensitivities, it's not likely that he's going to be happy in central London, is it? And if he does live in the country, what effects will he have on the people and animals around him? What else is going to change? And will it all be "changes for the better"?

HAL has set up a situation with a lot of good questions that need answers. And, so far, he's coming up with a series of answers that make logical sense, but turn the usual elves and "faeries"(not that this story has any of them) thing on its ear.

HAL has a largish collection collection of stories here, including some that are favorites of mine. And, while correctness of language will not substitute for lack of storytelling ability, a well told tale is more pleasant to read. His language flows, and the dialogue generally sounds as if someone could really have said whatever. This adds to the enjoyment when he's found a new crack in the mythos to have a poke at.

There's not a lot of sweaty, detailed sex to get off on, just an interesting tale where the sex occasionally rears its head. We know about "tab A" and "slot B", but it's not porn, quite.
