The Papers of Seymore Wainscott: The White Pavilion serialization, part 33

The Songs Of Tungol

Departure from the Tongland Wayhoose includes something akin to a roller coaster ride through the crown of the ancient tree.  This is followed by a coach ride in the rumble-tumble with Morag Kilkenny.  And when Seymore expresses interest in the lytsongs, or folk lore of the local lytfolc population, Kilkenny's enthusiastic reply lasts the whole afternoon and wanders from Stonehenge to Kilkinney's youth as a fledgling lore master.  Seymore's notes describe the collection of songs that recount the coming of the lytfolc to the Far Isles...

The Papers of Seymore Wainscott: The White Pavilion serialization, part 32

At the Tongland Wayhoose

At the recommendation of the Kirkudbright harbur master, Seymore and Leornian engage Duhghlas Cairn, known upon the lochs and high road as Bonnie Dug, to be their Donner, or guide, overland to Ayr, and they set forth on the first leg of their journey in a birlinn.  Their first night on the high road finds them at the Tongland Wayhoose, a 500-year-old lytfolc establishment in the roots and crown of an ancient tree.  From an antechamber near the great hall, Seymore describes his impressions of the place: As my eyes grew accustomed to the fringe of darkness beyond the vestibule, I saw shadowy figures going and coming in the concourse...
