In a nutshell: Headstrong young Janet hears that the mysterious Tam Lin has forbidden all maidens to go to the wood called Carterhaugh (a real place; it's near Selkirk), on pain of... how shall we put this... [[FateWorseThanDeath no longer being maidens]]. She declares that she will go to Carterhaugh, but she has no sooner picked a rose[[note]]in ballads and stories, picking a rose summons the ruler of the place. See also "Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast".[[/note]] than Tam Lin himself shows up...[[note]]in some versions it's consensual, in some versions he rapes her, and in some the deed isn't mentioned at all, just the resulting pregnancy.[[/note]]

The numerous variants collected by Francis Child can be found [[http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/eng/child/ch039.htm here]]. Joseph Jacobs' "Tamlane" can be read [[http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/More_English_Fairy_Tales/Tamlane here.]] The song or songs inspired by it have been recorded by numerous artists, including Fairport Convention, Music/SteeleyeSpan, Music/{{Current 93}}, and Music/TheDecemberists (the latter a loose adaptation of it as ''The Hazards of Love'' [[spoiler:with a DownerEnding]]).

* In the ''Literature/DresdenFiles'' series' 14th book, ''Literature/ColdDays'', it is revealed that Tam Lin once served the Winter Court as Winter Knight, and was one of the few Knights to call the Winter Court to task for their treatment of humans before Harry took up the position.

Pretty much every element of the story is compatible with the mechanics of the Dresden Files too.
