Prophecy or Destiny?

Fantasy is by nature about destiny and fate and the great and grand designs, and I believe one cannot entirely avoid inserting a telling a two to create an air of both mystery and expectation.

I do, however, understand that knowing what will happen is not optimum for readers. How did I avoid revealing too much?

I do not reveal the prophecy until after it’s fulfilled, and then I employ the fulfilling to explain how much the characters have grown. Prophecy thus flows in with the tale … and creates Destiny.

And now I break my own rule in revealing one to you!
