Tales became a vision of mine at 15, shortly after I wrote what would become the "vampy vampire" finale of one of my favorite "threads", that of a sweet medieval maiden bitten who, some centuries later of battle against her own kind and other mythical monsters, decides its ok to feed on "bad guys".
"Threads" I say because the songs, dances and acted segues are "puzzle pieces" to put together for the needs of the venue.
Renaissance faires were the best places to get all these elements in, usually with such simple instructions as "we want a show about period music, the history of the lute, etc."
"Hiwayman" is typically a good first piece in that portrays the meeting of our "prebite" maiden and my first character, the free spirited bard who will become her mentor and narrator, her "Giles" to my "Buffy" if you will.
You can see some of my other works in the same Youtube but sadly, most suck. Like this "Hiwayman" most videos were rushed, unnecessary asides to training Treasures and preparing for shows.
Tales is just a series of experiments with varying degrees of "success" anyway. Let's see how this one fairs...
