It's just a dumb pun I put there after canceling A New Sun. There's an Anglo-Saxon poem called "The Wanderer." Here's a little bit of it:

"Her bið feoh læne, her bið freond læne , her bið mon læne , her bið mæg læne , eal þis eorþan gesteal idel weorþeð!"

Translation:
"Here wealth is fleeting,
here friend is fleeting,
here man is fleeting,
here woman is fleeting
—all this earthly habitation shall be emptied."

So what I've got up there is "Here, Mag is fleeting." Mag is the perspective character of A New Sun. As for the pronunciation, if I remember right, "ð" is pronounced like "th," as in "this" or "writhe;" "æ" is just a long "a," like "lace" or "may." So phonetically, it's pronounced "Hair bith Mag lane."

What does her bið Mag læne mean in English, and how do you pronounce it?

Don't sell yourself short my friend, i liked your story. It shows compassion for those gone ahead, look forward to seeing more of the same. Thanks for writing and sharing.

Appreciate the encouragement! I'm toying with some things, but still trying to decide if it's worth it.

You left an eloquent comment and have good opinions on fanfic sharing. Here's a follow on the off chance you find your muse again!
