Thank you so much to everyone who's read this and commented on it, especially as it's the second time of posting! I've enjoyed writing it very much, and am now going to start work on making it into a proper novel. Here, as an epilogue, is the full ballad of Tam Lin, which is the source of this story and is one of my favourite stories ever.
