    Summary

    Queen La, the lonely. High Priestess La, the empty. All she asked for was a companion to share her burden. A non-monkey burden. The Leopard priests brought her a slightly bruised daughter. Queen La, the lonely, wasn’t quite so lonely now that she had her lost princess.

    Princess Ja of Opar wore for a crown that which she had killed with her own hand, because nobody hurts Mummy and gets away with it.

    Summary

    It may be generally understood that the Greek gods were arrogant a******s and Artemis was really good at violence.

    At the dawn of the Trojan War, Iphigenia was prepared to be a willing sacrifice to Arrow Rain Showering Artemis (she's so moon-struck dreamy). Penelope was ready to do the practical thing in Ithaca. Circe had vital experiments to complete. Vital! Penthesilea was just waiting for the war to start. Achilles was looking forward to some lovely encounters with heroes. Helen was taking a hot steamy bath.

    Which is why the aliens really shouldn't have tried to shock and awe the earthlings by beaming up the Queens and stealing Artemis' sacrifice. Big mistake. Huge really.

    Or, how Iphigenia escaped certain death and Helen found new opportunities.

    Summary

    Jane used to rush into strange dreams at night: dreams many-coloured, agitated, full of the ideal, the stirring, the stormy--dreams where, amidst unusual scenes, charged with adventure, with agitating risk and romantic chance,she still again and again met Edward, always at some exciting crisis; and then the sense of being in his arms, hearing his voice, meeting his eye, touching his hand and cheek, loving him, being loved by him--the hope of passing a lifetime at his side, would be renewed, with all its first
    force and fire. Then they awoke.

    Summary

    It was a story told a thousand and one ways. What was new was the voice of the teller. What was new was the ear of the listener. The way the threads of the story wove one to the other.

    They continued to journey west until they came to a wide green river where the cypress grew thick. The cicadas hummed in the trees and in the still hot air, the Song of the South was sung.

    Summary

    Later, when she did find the strength to walk out, she put all of her things into those thick, black garbage bags and hitchhiked back to California, and in her head she heard him saying, "If we never make it back to California, I want you to know I love you."

    Summary

    Helen had been brought up to be a Nice Girl.

    “Always smile,” her mother would advise briskly. “For goodness sake, girl, if you can’t be pretty you can at least look cheerful!” Now, don’t show me up and remember to be friendly. If you want people to like you, Helen, and god knows they have little enough reason to, you must always find something to compliment them about no matter how small. Never go anywhere without a gift, and it must be a good one – people will remember you when they think of the gift, and you’re hardly going to stick in their heads without some help, are you? Always be helpful. Never say no if you can say yes. What did I tell you about smiling?!”
