This story was written for this year’s Camelot Remix fest as a remix of the amazing scotscookie
’s incredible story “Gulf of Years”
created a (vastly superior) alternative ending to the episode “The Last Dragonlord”. In Cookie’s story, Balinor survives, and then... *NO SPOILERS*! Go and read it! It's fantastic!
Cookie, you have created such a tremendous range of beloved stories that I really struggled to decide on which one to remix. Apart from anything else, I really didn’t want to screw this up because I’m such a massive die-hard Cookie fan! Anyway, dear Cookie, this is for you! I do hope that you don’t hate what I’ve done. Thank you so much for generously opening up your collection of stories to this amazing fest.
