Beast doesn't quite know what to think (but he kind of likes it). Mom is mom and therefore awesome.

    Summary

    The brothers were raised in the court of their Great Uncle Math, but were no part of it. No songs were sung of them. No place was made at the table. They were as unseen.

    No mother to give them names. No father to give give them weapons. No king to make them a wife.

    This in the end proved to be for the better.

    Summary

    English is no pure language. It likes to shake down other languages for spare verbs and nouns.

    All languages borrow. Steal. Blend. Overwrite where they can. Struggle to sing against the silence.

    But hear now the tale of a family. A member of a vast tribe. Now is the time to gather the singers of tales. Go to the beginning. As far back as we can go. See the how each ancestor leaves a note in the song.

    Summary

    Oliva, long since silent, said nothing to him in the groundcar as he left that... that... that his house would come to this! There were no echoes of Olivia's voice.

    His daughter, his little girl, long since silent, did not echo laughter in the stable as Miles held Fat Ninny.

    His eldest boy, his first heir, did not lurk a shadow as Miles watched the wine cart roll in. As Piotr played political games there was no echo to be heard.

    There was no echo of Aral, eager to go to the Academy, to make official what was already real, in Miles' plans.

    There were no echoes at all.

    It was that Piotr could not help hearing them.

    Summary

    Allah dyed the wool of the sky a brilliant red the day that Shah Hussain born.

    Perhaps better to say Shah Hussain woke up to provide no offense to the labors of his mother given he was thirty-six at the time. Having memorized the Koran at age ten, he'd been at a twenty year labor studying in the madrasas of the city where he'd been born. Going sleepless nights in austere contemplation of the flow of the Ravi River and no coins for a journey to far off Mecca.

    Currents of Hindu and Muslim kings had traded the city back and forth, and all that time he'd struggled to understand the laws that must govern the spirit of his life.

    Summary

    John Watson knew when he somehow fell into an alternate universe where he was a Bond Omega dating Robin Hood, or possibly if Molly was to be believed a demiurge of chaotic good. That he liked it was unreasonable, irrational, and a bit not good.

    Sherlock Holmes knew the precise moment when he pair bonded. Three retorts and a biological impulse.

    Irene Adler knew when love died. She spent all her days plotting to salt and burn the earth where it still walked.
