Sir Bic ignored the slight tugging on his sleeve. He concentrated instead on the pageantry on display before him, the parade of champions on the verdant field.

The tugging became more insistent. Sir Bic sighed and glanced down.

“Sir Bic, please sir, can I join too? I know I am not a member of the League of Awesomeness, or one of the famous wielders of the quill, but I would like to contribute, however small that contribution might be.”

“Of course, my child. All are free to join.”

The smile of the child was radiant. She made her way onto the field and stood with the great champions that she so admired. There was Robert the Quick, Lady Elshanor and all the greats there. She bowed her head in gratitude and vowed to do her best to make worthy comments.

    I remember my comment on your first ficly: “crisp, clean, and preciseā€¦not muddled with poetic spacing or excessive wordy baggage.”

    That comment applies to this ficly too. Wonderful introduction!

    That was absolutely adorable. Loved it. Even aside from the challenge entry and self-deprecating idea, it’s a lovely moment.

    I can see Sir Bic boosting you up to sit on his shoulder and look out over the field. I have to echo the previous stories; this was adorable.

    Such a darling and unbearably sweet. I will not fall for your puppy dog eyes!

    Cute addition to the Tourney. Everyone loves “little ones”.
    I easily imagined a pigtailed, redhead girl with big eyes looking up at a Knight that was readying for battle. Nicely done.

    Such humility. I could learn a thing or two from you :)

    This is incredibly cute, which is not a pair of words that I often use. Although for some reason I imagined her with a Cockney accent and dirt-smudged face in the manners of the classic orphan. Hmm…
