    Summary

    They say a baby born with a caul can go between worlds, can conjure spirits, can never be drowned. They say it's good luck, too, but that part I don't believe.

    Summary

    Richard stalked the halls of Rouen like a tamed lion, but one that still had claws, and might turn on you if you came too close. And Geoffrey could never resist baiting his brother. With King Henry gone to Caen to collect their mother, whom he had once again released from her imprisonment, this time for Easter, and John floundering away in Ireland, there was no one else for the two of them to direct their energies towards. The knights and courtiers took bets as to which would strike the first blow, with the prevailing wisdom being that no matter who began it, Richard would surely end it.

    Summary

    It was a string of rather colourful curses that stopped Elijah Pinhoe in his tracks that morning. He paused to listen to it appreciatively, as he might have savoured a rare bird call, and then bent his path through the woods to find where it had come from.

    The source was easy to locate, crashing around in the underbrush as it was. It proved to be a tall, lanky young man with fair hair wearing, rather unexpectedly, a silk dressing gown. "Buggering bloody hell!" he shouted, and kicked a nearby oak tree. This seemed to hurt his foot, and he hopped around angrily in a circle, which brought him face to face with Elijah. He stopped hopping and stood there glowering instead.

    Summary

    He was dozing on the couch in front of some afternoon talk show that didn't address what to do when your teenager was getting involved with dangerous supernatural matters, when the doorbell rang. He got up, not wanting Rachel to interrupt her writing unnecessarily, and went to answer it. Standing outside was a skinny boy in skinny jeans with dyed black hair and a ring through his lower lip. He was carrying a bag from Milagros and looked nervous. "Hey, is Lil home?"

    Summary

    Returning alone to the great rotting ruin of a house felt strangely like a homecoming, even though she had only lived there for a short while. She ignored the stares in the village - no doubt no one there had expected to see the widowed Lady Sharpe again. But the house felt like hers in a way it had never been when she was married to Thomas. It felt like she was wanted there, if not precisely welcomed.

    Summary

    "What's wrong with doing things the old-fashioned way?" Jack asked, sliding his hand along her thigh, sheathed in silk.

    "Nothing, darling! Just like there's nothing wrong with getting a lovely handwritten letter in the post. But sometimes you need to get the message across more efficiently, and a telegram does the job perfectly."

    "So you're asking me to send you a telegram, even though I'm right here?"

    Summary

    Chime had expected - worried, if he was honest - that things between them might change when Jade and Moon made a clutch together. A pregnant queen's temperament tended to grow more volatile, and she would be increasingly selective about who she wanted to have around her, and especially who was allowed to touch her.

    Summary

    Titania turned before the mirror, casting a critical eye over her shoulder. "I'm not sure about this dress," she said to Gabby, who was perched on the edge of her bed. "It's so short, it just makes me look even shorter." The dress under scrutiny was an icy blue, trimmed with beads and covered in sparkling sequins.

    "It's the latest style, though," her best friend pointed out. "Besides, no one's going to be saying how short you are - they'll be too distracted by your boobs."

    Summary

    "You know you're weird, right?" Addie sat up from David's bed, pulling the blankets into a cozy nest around her. "Because I'm right here, and you're over there reading some kind of arcane armoire."

    "Grimoire," David corrected.

    "I just... I don't want you to think I'm taking advantage of our arrangement."

    "How do you know I'm not taking advantage of your desperation?" she asked, untucking his shirt and beginning to undo his pants.

    "I think I'd be okay with that..."

    Summary

    It was their grandmother's story first. Or perhaps it had been her grandmother's before that - by the time Janna thought to ask her, the old woman's memories were scattered and fragmented and it was impossible to know where she'd first heard it. "It's a true story, from the old times," she would tell them, and that was as close as they got.

    Summary

    "Jillain and - Enderlen, was it? You're on late watch tonight," Ander said firmly. "Now, if you're still feeling dizzy, get yourself to the medical tent, Jillain. Otherwise, both of you get back to work."

    "I'm doing better, sir," she said, a bit abashed, picking up the shovel she'd left leaning against a tree.

    "Both of you," Ander emphasized, with a sharp glance at Enderlen. He was still meeting Ander's gaze, not aggressively, but evenly. This was a man who'd been in fights, Ander suddenly thought - he was watching his opponent, sizing him up, waiting for him to make a move or a mistake or do anything out of the ordinary.
