2 Works in The Grand Ellipse - Paula Volsky
When the Festinette twins disappear, an old friend of theirs can’t accept they’re gone and wishes to save them. She contrives to ask Girays v’Alisante to help her and to do that she needs an invitation to the castle Waterwitch. There she learns that despite claims to the contrary, she does have a slight talent for magic and is able to help someone else too.
"Are you telling me you wish to break off our engagement in order for me to marry Karsler instead?"
"No," Girays said. "That's not what I'm telling you, Luzelle." (post-canon AU)
