This section features stories written by fans about Strongbow or with Strongbow in a big role. While there’s no limit to people’s imagination, there are, however, limitations to what will be added here.
No same sex pairings (a.k.a. slash) and graphic erotic situations, no deaths and/or recognitions of elves that have not occurred in the official ElfQuest comics (for example, Skywise does not recognise Moonshade … or … Clearbrook does not die by humans). I think you get my idea. Try to keep it as canon as possible.
