YC 124 New Eden Capsuleer's Writing Contest

I have three stories this year that would qualify and I wish to enter:

But Mama I don’t want the wind
How the God lost His name, and the Khanid their God
Why is the sea salty

The middle one could qualify as theological text, but I do not think the competition will see it similarly to me, so I suppose these are all prose.

Spirits at your back.

OOC

The salt mill story is, obviously, a retelling of a well-known European legend / fairy tale. I have not followed any particular telling knowingly (though I cannot rule out subconscious borrowing of phrasings but put it to words and set it to context on my own. I am not sure how this relates to the competition’s rules on plagiarism; if it breaks them I trust the judges won’t consider it.

I don’t know if I can submit this for the contest, as a portion of it is vocabulary invented and copied from another post, but if it is acceptable and not considered plagiarism then I hope it is to your liking. I organized the vocabulary better, starting with categories and then often alphabetizing it within each category. I also explained a connection between the languages of Athra/Amarr and Soliara, and did my best to translate the Holder oath, word for word.
