    Summary

    "What precisely does this... beverage entail, sir?"

    "Gin, crushed blackberries, and a healthy dollop of champagne. That's what gives it the sparkle, see?"

    Jeeves looked as though he'd swallowed an irritable hornet. "Sir, the adulteration of champagne in such a manner is most inappropriate. Furthermore, if I were to open a bottle now, you would then need to consume the remainder of its contents or else the rest would be wasted."

    "Then I shall have to do just that!" I proclaimed. After all, I had nowhere to go for the remainder of the afternoon, and my Aunt Agatha would be joining me for dinner. Getting squiffy sounded like a pleasant way to pass the time until my inevitable ritual disembowling after the soup course.

    Jeeves suppressed a sigh. "Yes, sir."

    Summary

    "It was supposed to be over," Harrington said, clinging to any faint hope he could muster. "Karswell is dead, the curse returned to him..."

    "But not destroyed," Dunning said, his head in his hands. "The paper slip was not destroyed with his death. It could have been passed to another, or..." He trailed off, trembling so violently that Harrington reached out and put a hand on his shoulder to try and steady his nerves.

    "Or what?" he asked quietly.

    "Or... it could rebound upon me, as the last who was its possessor. All my reading points to this inescapable fact - the thing Karswell conjured with those runes still persists in this world."

    Summary

    Chime suddenly realized he had some urgent work he needed to do in the library when the question arose, and Moon didn't even think about asking Jade, knowing how busy she was. Instead, with the five babies crawling all over him, he turned to the other consorts. "Stone, could you help me feed them...?"

    Stone looked like Moon had just asked him to balance a table on his head - he could probably do it, but it was a very odd request. But Ember, who had been lounging near the hearth in the consorts' bower, sat up. "I could help, if you wanted," he said, a little shyly.

    Summary

    I drive for a long time, past places with names like Harmony Beach and Pancake Bay and Jones Harbour-with-a-u. Near Pancake Bay there's a chicken shack and I stop there for lunch, even though what I really want is pancakes. There are a lot of bays here (not a lot of creeks) because most of the time I'm driving along the curve of the lake. You think of a lake and you picture something like a pond, a little thing you can see to the other side of, but this is different. It's so big, like an ocean confined within a country, an ocean that wants to break free. I couldn't possibly see what's on the other side, even if it wasn't starting to snow.

    Summary

    It was a large, somewhat ramshackle structure with a sign hanging outside that bore the image of a sword and crown, and from within the sounds of laughter and music could be heard. "What's this?" Wren asked uncertainly.

    "A tavern," Starling told her. She'd read about taverns in her books, and she knew that they were often where adventures began.

    Summary

    Finn and Rey were both learning a great deal on this mission. Neither of them had seen very much of the galaxy, and every stop brought new discoveries and astonishing realizations. One key piece of information they acquired was, "Never ask Poe Dameron to create a distraction unless you are really, truly prepared to resist being distracted yourself."

    Summary

    Moon was much less ignorant than he had been about Raksura customs and society, but there were still some matters that surprised him. One, as it turned out, was how assertive queens got when they were carrying a clutch. How much more assertive.

    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.
