    Путешествие Малыша Гамми в поисках золотых часов

    Aaaaaaaand: another piece of “parent fiction” featuring Disney’s Gummi Bears. ^_^ This one was originally written in Russian, by an author who calls herself xoalexandraox. In the story, the youngest Gummi Bear wants to be a knight, but that the others tell him that you have to be very brave and daring to become a knight. Then he wants to prove that he is very courageous and goes to fight a dragon, but: the dragon is very sweet and they become friends. Super nice! ^_^ Translation by me, so all suggestions are very welcome.

    Η απαγωγή της πριγκίπισσας

    I got a new piece of “parent fiction” featuring the Gummi Bears! It is written by someone under the pseudonym of “Klarissimus” and in modern Greek. As I only learnt ancient/Koine Greek, it was difficult for me to understand it completely, but thanks to the help of Panagiotis Apostolatos, a full translation can be found below. Enjoy! ^_^

    The Last Kingdom Fanfic

    The following fanfic is simply called “The Last Kingdom Fanfic” and written by jasminecanada. In this story, King Alfred gets very sick and is cured by princess Gisla, who came with her husband Rollo to attend a royal wedding. When Alfred takes his crown off, he already feels better, but he is not completely healed. Gisla finds a prayer to heal him in his Enchiridion (his notebook) in which she draws a Chi Rho sign. Alfred and Gisla talk about friendship between their peoples and Alfred explains how friendship feels for the Anglo-Saxons.

    Alfred / Modwenna / Wyrm

    Surakian wrote this untitled fanfiction for The Last Kingdom, in which King Alfred gets very sick (when hiding in the Athelney marshes) and Modwenna cures him. She finds out that he has a wyrm in his spinal cord, and her herbal medicine does not seem to work, but when he is as good as dead, she summons the wyrm (that is called Gifer) to go away.
