I was uploading today, and was waiting for it to finish to notify you here, but it took a long time and I had to run some errands.
I also only saw your pm now, I didn't get any notification about it before...
I had the recordings ready weeks ago, but I kept postponing editing in some bits at the beginnings and ends of recordings, so it took some time, and it may sound a bit off, but it should be more or less finished now.
I split the last story in two parts since it was too long. Below you will find the summaries of the remaining stories.
Sunce djever i Neva Nevičica (The "Wedding Guest" Sun and Neva Nevičica)
In the guise of an old woman, the shapeshifter Mokoš goes over to a miller and his wife to have her grain ground. As they do not offer her a fair trade, she returns the next day, and is served for free by their kind-hearted daughter Neva Nevičica. Mokoš promises to recommend her to her grandson the Sun and to be of her aid wherever she went.
Soon, it happened so that the evil princess lost the keys to her treasures, and promised to make her closest court attendant, whoever finds the lost keys. Neva Nevičica finds the keys with the help of Mokoš. The princess, however, intended for the valiant ban Oleh to find the keys and make him her husband. Oleh and Neva fall in love instantly, return the keys to the princess, and ride away to get married in the court of ban Oleh.
Out of wrath, the furious princess orders a military attack on Olah and Neva Nevičica. Many wedding guests and ban Olah's allies defend them, but cannot stop the mighty army. Even Mokoš refuses to help them, since Neva Nevičica disobeyed her by refusing to become empress's attendant and chose ban Olah instead. Neva Nevičica turns her plea to the heaven, where the mighty Sun happened to be passing by, and heard her prayers.
Since she kindly provided Mokoš and him with ground grain previously, the Sun takes pity on her. It punished Mokoš and defeats the enemy army with its fierce heat.
Following their victory, Neva Nevičica and ban Oleh finally get married, and even the Sun comes to their wedding, as it was prophesied by fairies at Neva Nevičica's birth.
Šuma striborova (The Forest of Stribor)
A young man wanders into a forest that was said to stay enchanted until it is visited by someone, who prefers their misfortune to all the happiness in the world. As he was cutting wood, a sinful cursed spirit in the form of a serpent takes shape of a young beautiful woman. The naive young man is seduced, and he takes her back home with the intention of marrying her. His old and wise mother, however, is not fooled by the bride's appearance, and she immediately notices her reptilian tongue.
So they live all three together for some time, and the mother's life becomes increasingly unhappy, due to bride's wickedness, but she keeps her quiet, so as not to hurt her son. One day she encounters a poor girl wandering in the cold winter air, and offers to mend her clothes. The kind girl gives the old mother a bundle of firewood as a thanks.
One day, when the old mother used it to light fire, out of the fireplace came jumping and dancing familiar spirits, headed by Malik Tintilinić. They agree to help the mother in revealing the true nature of the bride. They replace bride's hen eggs with those of a magpie, and when the bride eventually finds them, her ophidian tongue and temper become apparent to all. All but her son, who banishes his mother overcome with wrath and shame.
Out in the cold, the old mother lights a fire, and is visited once again by the spirits. They advise her to visit Stribor, the elder of the enchanted forest. Stribor offers her a new life in another time, youthful, happy, and oblivious to anything and everything from the current time. But the old woman refuses, preferring to live an unhappy life with her son, than a happy one without him. At once, the whole forest roars and suddenly disappears together with Stribor, all the spirits, and with the vicious bride. The son immediately falls to his mother's knees in repentance.
After some time, he marries the kind poor girl, and they all continue living happily.
Bratac Jaglenac i sestrica Rutvica (Brother Jaglenac and sister Rutvica)
Running away from an enemy attack on her town, a noble and kind-hearted princess stumbles upon a cabin in a valley under the Kitež mountain. The shepherdess Milojka hides the princess and her baby boy prince. The princes departs again soon afterwards, but leaves with Milojka a golden belt and a golden cross on a red ribbon, which Milojka after many years on her death bed entrusts to her daughter Rutvica and son Jaglenac. After the funeral, Rutvica gets snatched by an eagle and carried onto the Kitež mountain. She manages to free herself and find refuge in a church in the middle of a sacred lake, on the top of the mountain.
In the meantime, the toddler Jaglenac leaves home to search for his sister. On his way up the Kitež mountain, Jaglenac is assaulted in various ways by the evil fairies (Zatočnice), but his golden cross and childish innocence protect him throughout his journey. Eventually he reaches the top of the mountain, where he reunites with Rutvica.
The noble princess meanwhile was living in a far-away land with her son Relja, who grew up into a fine but proud young prince. Longing for his lost princedom, Relja departs to find the proofs of his status: the golden belt and the cross. He learns of the two siblings' whereabouts, and on his way up the mountain, slays the fire dragon out of withheld rage, and is persuaded and lead forward by one of the evil fairies, who also desired the golden belt. When they reach Jaglenac and Rutvica, Relja does not have the heart to take the lost emblems by force, but instead joins the children and sends away the evil fairy. The newly founded party makes way down the mountain with the sacred candle and cresset, which were found in the church, and which keep away all evil. Having happily returned into the valley, they send for the princess, who rejoices in meeting Jaglenac and Rutvica. So they all lived together in the valley for some time, and the inhabitants of those lands eventually recognised their nobility and virtues. Their conquered town eventually became desert due to the prodigal ways of life of their current lords. Thus, the princess and Relja take back their rightful principality. After some time, Rutvica and Relja marry, while Jaglenac grows up into a handsome and swift horse-rider.
