Where others see a social outcast, Tincrown discovers a kindred spirit with a shared affinity for literature, botany, and tea. He has spent a lifetime healing wounds, and he’s convinced that the balm for a restless mind is a patient heart. He only has until the autumn equinox to convince Emerald that his affection is real.

Content note for Upland Daughter manuscript:
This story contains instances of misgendering, deadnaming, and transphobia. The characters depicted in this tale do not have terms for their experiences in this place and time. I have made this choice to acknowledge the fact that even when gender nonconformity and queerness haven’t been adequately represented in the lexicon, we have always been here.
