Daily Prompt 21

Sorry for a late daily prompt, my internet has been tetchy since we made the decision to go fibre or what not.  I am not very good with technical terms.  We have been losing internet for hours on end for a couple of days now, don’t know when the next time I can post.  So I am trying to put as much up on schedule as possible just in case I lose the internet for a longer period of time. I remember a few years ago I lost the internet for about nine weeks solid, I really hope it isn’t going to happen again!

Today’s prompts are – A Badger – A Dress – Revenge – A Gelert – A gold mine

Now for those who may not have heard of a Gelert before, it is a Welsh mythological ghost dog.

The origin of the story is this;

Prince Llewellyn had a dog which he named Gelert.  The dog was very faithful and one of the best dogs this prince ever owned.  But one day the prince decided not to go hunting with Gelert, when he came back he went into the nursery and found blood spattered all over the hound and on the walls of the nursery; thinking the worst the prince blamed the dog for attacking the baby and not hearing any sounds of the baby he immediately plunged his sword into the heart of the dog, killing it instantly! Upon further inspection of the baby a servant discovered that there was a massive dead wolf next to the baby and the baby was completely unharmed and asleep, the blood had been from the wolf not his son.  Full of remorse the prince carried the dog that had protected his child and dug a grave just outside the castle walls and gave the dog a proper burial.  Ever since, the dog’s spirit is said to roam the area protecting humans from danger of any vicious animal and even supposedly demons and witches nearby.

This is one of the many stories of the legend of The Gelert.

As you can see with prompt words like these, there is a lot to play with, especially incorporating the old legend within your own piece of work!

Daily Prompt 19

Today’s daily prompts are – Daisy – A crab – A sickness – Evil king – grapes

This is interesting; there are a few things that come to my mind here with these prompts.

Here are a couple of suggestions;

An evil king poisons a mermaid he wants to possess by making her eat poisoned grapes and her only saviour is her friend, a crab called Daisy.

Alternatively the story could be that a crab makes an evil king good again by making him sick and dependant on the kindness of others – a moral to the story is usually a popular notion.

Anyway, the prompts are yours to play with and as always, have fun!
