When I was in seventh grade, I started writing a fantasy saga about the world in the time of prehistoric humans, a place in which elves, fairies, giants, merfolk, sea serpents, and sorcerers reigned supreme. One land of the sorcerers, an island off the coast of modern-day France, was called Et Paix (which, unbeknownst to me at the time, means “And Peace”). It was a land inhabited entirely by witches who wore extravagant evening attire every day. Each year, a convention of all the witch princesses of the world was held. Below are looks inspired by my childhood dream.
