Jack and the Icicle


A 100-word location, inspired by this (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_stalactite) and a classic fairytale.


In the cold cold winter of the frozen frozen North the temperatures drop so low that the clouds freeze.
Scholars believe a permanent ice cap sits in the sky over the north pole, casting that land into eternal shadow. With the onset of winter, the clouds freeze ever further southwards and the skies darken. Great stalactites of ice form, connecting earth to sky. There are legends of men who have climbed these and of the giants who live in the realms of eternal frost above, whose footsteps may be heard in the creaking icesheet. Of course, they are only legends...

Absolutely love this. Great 100!
A fairy tale treatment would require much higher wordcount.

It grows on trees?

       By: Wulfhere

In the dry steppelands, one of their most valuable exports is the dried sap of the Larthorn tree. These ugly plants are covered with vicious thorns, but the locals harvest the golden droplets that ooze from their bark each Autumn. This sap, once dried, is valued for its medicinal properties and as a spice. Since little gold or silver is found in the hinterland, the dried droplets of sap are often used as currency by the locals.
