    Summary

    Kel sat and thought about it all through the long summer-- thought about joining the Riders when she turned sixteen, or going back to the Yamani Isles with her parents, or running away to become an unlawful bandit hunter. She drank tea with her mother and accepted her quiet sympathy. She wondered what was going to happen to Peachblossom. She did her morning glaive practice dances in the heady air of the tiny courtyard garden of her parents' townhouse, where the cook grew herbs and spices in big overflowing boxes.

    Summer rolled on. She sat, and she thought, and she did not tell her thoughts to anyone. On the first day of what would have been her second year of page training, she woke before the sun and had a quiet breakfast with her father, and then she jogged up the big dusty hill to the palace.

    When the pages trailed out to the practice yards with dubious enthusiasm, she was waiting just outside their ground. Her chin was high, her shoulders loose while her hands gripped her weighted staff.

    "Probationer," Wyldon barked out her, when one of the boys went to fetch him. "Was I unclear in the spring?"

    Kel stared him down, fingers white on her staff, and said, "I'm not a probationer anymore."

    Summary

    Owen doesn't know how to handle himself with girls; particularly with girls who know how to handle him.

    Summary

    The first time Owen found himself blushing over someone was at the Palace and it was wonderful and terrifying and flipped his world on its side. Faleron wasn't a sunflower of a pearl in the oyster of humankind or whatever Cleon would declare about Kel but when they managed to throw Zahir into a stall, right before Lord Wyldon appeared and sentenced them all to bread and water, Owen felt a surge of something that felt nothing like fighting bandits. He felt like he'd swallowed butterflies then missed the top step of Balor's Needle, something fluttered around his navel and he couldn't get a proper grip on it. Afterwards, everyone else's sighing over the ladies at court didn't make any more sense exactly but he wasn't completely bewildered either. Even Neal's bad poetry for Uldine of Hammon, hidden away in his desk until Faleron broke the lock for them during Midwinter, made a kind of sense. Not that Owen could understand writing poetry at all but there was something about the flutter that demanded capturing.

    In hindsight, asking Neal about it was still a terrible idea.

    Summary

    "We live at the edge of the miraculous."

    Apparently, being a costumed, crime-fighting pseudo hero is a Thing that can happen to you. A Thing that, as with most Things, is not an entity unto itself. Then again, no one expected heroism to be an easy path.

    Somehow, The Protector and Chevalier have managed to make it pretty far, wading through bloggers, human interest pieces, and villains of the week in order to figure out if they can actually do something Good. Capital G.

    ❨ alternatively: the urban fantasy, miraculous ladybug fusion that no one asked for. ❩

    Summary

    Well, it had to catch up with her sometime. When Kel innocently displays a questionable talent for tying cherry stems in a knot with her tongue, vulgar allusions abound. Of course, she has her champions.

    Summary

    War is the only good reason to let Kourrem bint Kemail and her atrocious bedside manner loose on anyone, let alone vulnerable patients and cross generals. Roald of Conté can attest to this personally.
