    Summary

    Kir's family hadn't seen him in years, his younger sister had never actually met him at all. Assuming him dead had been safer for everyone all around, and breaking what could be called a comforting illusion seldom went well.

    Kir himself hadn't seen his family in decades, and had consciously avoided thinking about them for years. Assuming them lost to him forever had been safer for everyone all around, and hoping for something else only made it easier to be hurt.

    But they all agreed that this was going to be hard.

    Summary

    A poem inspired by epic Norse Sagas, with a few ridiculous fandom references thrown in.

    I wrote this about 15 years ago for a friend who was going to a Viking themed SCA event. I'm still quite proud of the fact that I won second prize. I don't even remember all the little nods I threw in.

    Summary

    So they parted ways at the end of In the Bleak Mid-Winter (and if you haven't, you should read that before this, it continues from there) but there's no way Van and Stef aren't going to find each other again. They've both got a lot of stuff to deal with.

    ...I hate titles. Yay for Christmas getting songs stuck in my head!

    Summary

    “I won’t leave you,” Vanyel pledged, his grip tightening on his lute. “And I won’t let anyone take you from me, either.”

    Tylendel’s heart ached at the words. He wished he could believe that either of them would have any choice.

    Summary

    Young Stefen gets wind that some fancy lady dressed all in red is looking for a street singer and manages to avoid her--and isn't ever taken to Haven. He has a much rougher time of it and he and Van only meet later, after the other Herald-Mages are killed and Vanyel is heading north to finally face his country's unknown enemy.

    (This has nothing to do with Christmas, but it is bleak and winter-y and Christmas songs are...you know, pervasive this time of year.)

    Summary

    Solaris, True Born Son of the Sun, has Ascended.

    The work has just begun. Time to rediscover the Old Ways, craft new ones and hopefully an Old but new Firestarting Order will be able to emerge from the ashes. Thankfully, one Ancar of Hardorn has obligingly offered plenty of fuel for rebuilding their reputation as protectors of the innocent, rather than burners of children.

    Let us set them on fire!
