Capture the Moon

capturethemoonAn f/f fairytale

Accompanied only by her faithful piglet Ferkel, country girl Adrien disguises herself as a boy and sets out on a journey of discovery—not least to evade her several suitors. Rescuing a young monk, Felix, from brigands, she agrees to accompany him on his journey to the King’s castle to present the princess with a telescope he has made.

Princess Selene has sworn to marry only one who can give her the moon—but does she mean it literally? As Felix loves another, Adrien, still dressed as a man, takes the telescope in his stead. Adrien falls in love with the lively, beautiful princess and is amazed to find Selene loves her in return.

But will Selene’s love die when Adrien reveals her true gender? And in any case, two women cannot be married—can they?
