Worldbuilding Wednesday 10/20/21: The Best of Twittersnips (Fairy Tales)

Russian fairy tales have a cast of characters rarely heard above in the West. I believe the pic above is of Alkonost and Sirin, two mythical, woman-headed birds with bewitching voices. Unlike the sirens, they used their singing for good, bringing happiness to those deserving. The cave full of giant gem crystals is an unfamiliar element as well, though the intrepid boy explorer is not.

Following are a list of imaginary fairy tales culled from my Twitter feed, 2017 – 2021.
