    Summary

    “You’re young,” Alex says bluntly. “Younger than me, even, and no one thought me any good until I’d proven myself in battle. And those of us who study the sword have many more opportunities to prove ourselves publicly--you lot are all shut away in your cloister, how would anyone even know?”

    “It’s not like they thought anything of me there either until the first Trials,” Thom says, a touch bitter. “I am so tired of proving myself.”

    “I would be too,” Alex says. “I’d look for something decisive. That’s not to say you have to do what Delia says, of course.”

    “You don’t seem to doubt me,” Thom says, something odd in his voice. He knocks his shoulder against Alex’s, carefully.

    Alex means to use Thom of Trebond to further his own plans. It doesn't turn out that way at all.

    Summary

    An early morning summons to Jonathan’s room could spell ruin for Roger’s plan.

    Brief what-we-didn’t-see-on-the-page discussion between Roger and Jonathan, set toward the end of Lioness Rampant before Alanna comes back. I always wondered how Roger knew to wait for Alanna on the palace walls, when the way he questions Thom makes it clear his spies aren’t worth their weight in mud. Someone must have told him.

    Summary

    Alanna was boyish. Thom was the odd kid.

    “He doesn’t even speak,” they said. Although Thom did speak a whole lot. Most of the words he shared, he shared with Alanna. She had plans, told him stories. He provided her with concepts. Logical structures that spanned great distances, that connected ideas which had had no point of contact ever before. Thom could fall in love with a word and forget the story it belonged to.

    But there had always been magic. People were cruel. Magic was divine.

    Summary

    'It won't save the Queen,' Thom said, though he'd said it a dozen times already, the same useless protest in every vision. He knew what response he would have, but, but. But sometimes he was foolish, and maybe this time would be different.

    Summary

    There is something magical about the word "once". It speaks of a single thing, something that is never repeated. It can be something beautiful or painful. Perhaps we call it "once" because we hope it will never happen again. We draw lines around the fluid paths of our lives, and say, here, this is where this began, and this is where it ended. Once, I was content. Once, I was desperately unhappy. Once, I laughed until my sides ached. Once, I did something I regretted...

    Collection of one shots of lots of different characters. If you had one memory that you cherished or which haunted you, what would it be? Characters so far: Sarra, Peachblossom, Roger, Stormwing, Daine, Numair

    Gifted to Belbeten because of your lovely comments on my other one-shot fic. Thank you! ^_^

    Summary

    Alanna took Thom on the road to recover after he survived the incident with Roger. Thom retaliated by getting a new tattoo or piercing in every state they visited.

    Summary

    'It's been a little wretched, in truth,' Thom said. He paused at the spot where Ishak had died, though Alanna had yet to fully explain that. It was too near and too painful still, and when Thom suddenly turned and put out his hand, Alanna found her eyes stinging with tears. She interlaced their fingers tightly.

    Summary

    Roger's revenge was, had to be, petty; the slight that occasioned it was small enough, and for the moment Thom far too public to be easily done away with. Roger would strike at Alanna by moving some silly chit between the Prince and his squire, and thereby strike at Thom, who would be reminded it was Roger's playing field, Roger's pawns arrayed all around. Stalemate.

    Summary

    Alanna goes to the covenant, like she's supposed to. Thom finds that he rather likes palace life. He slides into the group of older pages, flashing smiles at Alex and sharing jokes with Gary. Coram even says that his riding has improved since they left Trebond, and that he's not a complete embarrassment any more. He takes advantage of the large palace library, and looks forward to Alanna's letter about the covenant life. Surely if he can find himself enjoying page training, then she would have found something nice in learning to be a lady.
    But the letter that comes is one none of them expect.

    Summary

         'There is no loneliness,'
         I said last night, when the wind blew among the trees,
         The waves beating (a sign of rain) did not bring
         Any sorrow to my heart,
         And no one with me under the roof.

    Alanna is right: Thom is lonely.
