We got some submissions lately that didn't fit in any of the folders so I made a few new ones. To avoid confusion which submissions go into which folder, here is a little reminder with examples:
Myths are sacred narratives involving supernatural beings like gods. In the society of its origin, a myth is usually regarded as a true account of the remote past. Myths generally explain how the world and humankind were created and how society was established.
"Hera's tiara" by bodaszilvia
Like myths, legends are stories that are traditionally considered true, but are set in a more recent time, when the world was much as it is today. Legends generally feature humans as their main characters, whereas myths generally focus on superhuman characters.
"Thalestris" by Faeriedivine
Unlike myths and legends, fairytales can be set in any time and any place, and they are not considered true or sacred by the societies that tell them. They typically feature folkloric fantasy characters, such as fairies, goblins, elves, trolls, dwarves, giants, mermaids, or gnomes, and usually magic or enchantments. Originally the intended audience was adults as well as children.
"The Beautiful Beast Collection - Conceptual Piece" by ElissaSoares
Any written story that doesn't fit in any of the above categories, usually of a more recent date.
"Wintersmith's Crown" by bionic-dingo
This folder is for all jewellery that is inspred by a specific song or piece of music. Music also tells stories.

"Born Free" by LuthienThye
Only use if you're really not sure into which folder to put it. If you can't decide, please read the folder descriptions, they should make it clear. If they don't, you may put it here or ask for help. If there is no suitable folder, you can also suggest one.
