    Summary

    There are a few things that Carlos may have neglected to tell Cecil.

    Like his last name.

    Or how he hasn’t actually dated anyone since his junior year of high school.

    Or that he’s a wizard of the White Council and the regional commander of Wardens in the western United States and not, in fact, a scientist.

    You know. Minor details.

    Summary

    Summary

    Canon divergence: a war breaks out before Marianne’s wedding.
    The Fairy and Goblin Kingdoms must fight together against a common, rather mysterious enemy they know next to nothing about, other than the fact that they steal their flowers + reserves and trespass. Roland leads the Fairy Army with King Oberon’s blessing while the Bog King leads that of the Goblins.
    Fairy women, of course, are not permitted to fight and must stay behind - including Princess Marianne who discovers, along with a series of other things, a dangerous way to act against tradition in order to fight. Yes- it's not smooth sailing for anyone...

    Summary

    "Being your slave, what should I do but tend
    Upon the hours and times of your desire?
    I have no precious time at all to spend,
    Nor services to do, till you require.
    Nor dare I chide the world-without-end hour
    Whilst I, my sovereign, watch the clock for you,
    Nor think the bitterness of absence sour
    When you have bid your servant once adieu;
    Nor dare I question with my jealous thought
    Where you may be, or your affairs suppose,
    But, like a sad slave, stay and think of nought
    Save, where you are how happy you make those.
    So true a fool is love that in your will,
    Though you do any thing, he thinks no ill."

    -Sonnet 57
