Der Erlkonig 1 by AsheRhyder Der Erlkonig 1 by AsheRhyder
A prequel in three parts. 1/3. Happy holiday.



Erlkönig is a mythological character and belongs to everyone and no one. The poem quoted here is Goethe's.

Aaah, I love this poem and song... it's been running through my head this whole time that I've been binge-reading your comic XD
...and also had me come to realise that the three characters I got the most excited about are all various incarnations of death...

Just found out today, that the translation of Goethe's version into English, was Sir Walter Scott's first bigger project :D

Ah, so many memories of Dietrich Fischer Dieskau, and of my own progress through Lieder's enchanting, yet demanding, journeys. Well done on making all fans of German lore, Goethe, and lieder simultaneously sigh, and some of them burst into song. (Just for the Erlkönig, mind)

You missed a line. That aside, it's awesome.
