My queen


An 8 year old girl pulled a 1500 year old sword out of a lake in Sweden. That settles it: Saga Vanecek is now queen of the world. She’s gotta be better than the evil goblins in charge right now.

Also, Queen Saga sounds epic.

    Strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

    Not a bad premise for a YA fantasy story: a girl finds an ancient sword attracting the attention of both the seelie and unseelie fairy courts who vie to make her their prophesized queen of a world of reawakened magic.

    You can’t expect to wield supreme executive power just ’cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!

    Swedish girls pulling swords out of ponds may be a good basis for a system of government!

    Maybe if we threw a certain stable genius at a lake, with a cinderblock attached to his leg, he might find a sword at the bottom. And if he doesn’t then clearly the Lady of The Lake doesn’t smile upon him.

    If nobody else wants that I will pass it along to a friend of mine who writes exactly this sort of YA novel, or maybe try to turn it into a feature myself.
