The Tinies are creatures of the Dragons Next Door setting and are loosely based on my memories of the Borrowers books.

The Tinies had lived alongside humans as long as the humans had been living in houses, and, although they were a scattered and fragmented society, they had traditions and unwritten rules that they carried from home to home and community to community, mostly carried by the old, those past their adventuring days.

I’m a bit behind on the next chapter of the Expectant Wood, so have a piece of history I wrote a while ago in the meantime.

The land was rising.

The people on the islands and the small nation of Aerax clung to whatever support they could find. The last magical explosions of the Roquelan Wars had been over for days. Nobody had expected another attack.

I don’t even remember what I wrote this for, but it suits the theme of May.

They liked their god, and so they’d kept him. Around them, the world had crumbled to pieces, the new gods, creatures like him, warring against the self-appointed protectors of humanity.

I was thinking of them! The connection is so easy if you grew up with them. And more lighthearted than the Wee Free Men, if memory serves. (Or maybe it doesn't.)

I never read The Borrowers or any of that series, but I did grow up with a similar series: The Littles. I keep thinking of them when reading Tinies stories.
