Interlude 6: Glass Jar

Morgyn I’m struggling to focus on what Aine is saying. I know these thoughts are counter-productive. I need to concentrate if I am to master untamed magic. But I can’t help it. L Faba has always had a way of creeping into my mind, ever since we met. Which is logical, I remind myself. I... Continue Reading →

Interlude 5: Qualified

Luella “I think we’re done for the day.” Haruka tells me. I think I’m getting pretty good at this. “Actually… there is something I wanted to talk to you about. Why don’t you sit with me?” She gestures towards the couch. I wonder what this could be about. “I’m sure you are looking forward to... Continue Reading →

Interlude 4: Options

Luella watched Dandelion’s little face grow animated with excitement as they approached the fair. She smiled to herself. Took a lot of convincing to persuade Simeon to let them come to the magic realm on Spooky Day this year, but it clearly paid off – her cousin was just as giddy about their visit as...

Interlude 3: Reborn from the Ashes

Luella evaluated the tent setup. Not bad. A little refuge by the river, before she inevitably had to return to Sylvan Glade. She loved Dandelion, she really did. But spending all of her time in Sylvan Glade with a child was suffocating. Especially now, when he was old enough to start asking uncomfortable questions. Painful... Continue Reading →

Interlude 2: Where All Magic Was Born

When Luella opened her eyes, the world around her was dark. The sky looked nothing like it did in Syeldell at night, though. Was it even night-time? She couldn’t tell. Dandelion had stopped crying, but kept clinging on to her. Luella knew they couldn’t stay still. They had to find Simeon Silversweater. Whoever he was.... Continue Reading →

Interlude 1: Key to My Heart

Luella was bored. According to her father, she was now old enough to be present for some of the audiences people had with the king. She was excited when he first told her… until she discovered that most of the court business was dreadfully dull. There was that one time one of the elves in... Continue Reading →

1.73 Human Nature

Cedmé was special, even among elves. She was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen, but more importantly, beauty filled her heart. No wonder she stole mine. She was an adventurer, often leaving Syeldell in the pursuit of discoveries. And I always eagerly awaited her return. Luckily for me, she felt the same way.... Continue Reading →

1.72 Super Powers

The campus was practically empty. Once they were outside, Dandelion took his hood off, giving Hawthorne a full view of his handsome face illuminated by the full moon. She could still feel the effects of the booze, even more so now, thanks to the glorious byproduct of second-hand drinking directly from someone else’s bloodstream. But... Continue Reading →

1.71 Good Sign

Disclaimer: Hawthorne's in this one, so language, again. Maybe I should just say 'Hawthorne' in the disclaimers... Dandelion looked around the pink-tinted room. It had been a long time since he last visited Magic HQ, this part especially. But Hawthorne was right. He deserved answers. Not that he was sure he was going to get... Continue Reading →
