Skin as white as snow. Hair as black as coal. Lips as red as blood. And a heart that stopped beating a long time ago, when the man with the Queen's dagger hunted a young woman down and cut out her heart. And so was created Snow White, a princess of the night. First of her kind.
Decorated hagstones, or adder stones, believed by Druids to have magical powers such as protection against eye diseases or evil charms, preventing nightmares, curing whooping cough, the ability to see through fairy or witch disguises and traps if looked at through the middle of the stone, and of course recovery from snakebite. According to popular conception, a true adder stone will float in water.
