    Summary

    You'd thought your master's hive was grand, but it's nothing compared to the Imperial Palace. The building rears up before you, sweeping arches and high towers, black stone ornamented with garnet-colored tile. The banners snapping in the wind are brighter, though, a red so bright it looks unnatural: the banners of the Scarlet Emperor, newly risen, the first of his blood since the Signless Sunderer tore down the old empire and built the new one a thousand sweeps ago. Every noble in the Empire is coming to the Capital tonight, bringing gifts to demonstrate their allegiance and beg the new Emperor's favor.

    Your master is bringing you.

    Summary

    You feel the shift in the air behind you as someone else approaches, but you don't get up. You'll waste anyone who tries to fuck with you right now.

    "Hot damn," says a voice almost but not quite like Terezi's. "Double trouble, huh?"

    Your dancestor snickers, and you look up as dancestor Pyrope swaggers around into view.

    Summary

    "Vantas, you lucky bastard," Straterrorist Reikar says, shaking her head. "Going to see that pilot of yours?"

    You grin. "Only chance I'm going to have for the next sweep, so we better get our duty to the Mother done while we can."

    Summary

    Some nights you do get the eerie-silence-falls routine when you walk in a place. Last night, for instance, when you caught up with your bounty in a town a few miles further down the trail. But the regulars at the Dead Barkbeast know you. The bartender plunks a bottle of bourbon down on the counter, the pianoman transitions from his jaunty little tune into something more nautical, and you preen a bit as you get a seat on your regular barstool.

    Summary

    You sit down in your computer chair and try not to squirm or shiver too much when she brushes your hair back from your earflap. You've never had anything pierced, and you think it probably can't be worse than getting injured during the game, but it's hard to relax all the same. You weren't just sitting and waiting to get hurt then.

    "Aight," Meenah says. "Let's get this shoal on the road."

    "Do it," you say. You close your eyes.
