    Summary

    There were twelve princesses once, who so frightened their father by destroying their shoes, that he offered princes a kingdom for the secret and death for failing to learn the truth of them.

    Quite simply they danced every night. It wasn't the end when the truth came out. Not for any of the princesses.

    Nissa Premiere was the eldest, and most stubborn of them all. She was the one who drugged the princes.
    Iya Secunda was next. Never to be the first.
    Siva Terce loved music once. After, to hear was to scream.
    Tammuz Forte was chained to a wall below the earth. She grew strong there.
    Ave Quintilla heard her mother's call to the river.
    Elu Sextilla slipped away with her lover.
    Tishrei Kore ran away the day of her sister's wedding.
    Chesheva Edel felt the scales fall from her eyes and saw the truth.
    Kisle Danielle fell into a dream.
    Teve Esther realized that she lived a very odd life.
    Sheva Heure believed in eleventh hour rescues.
    And Adara Nocte, the youngest, that one had far to go.

    Summary

    He'd been many things for many people. The reflection of what they wanted. Something to sell. Someone to threaten. Someone to serve.

    Summary

    Arianrhod knew one thing. She did not want Goewin's fate. To sit in the rushes where the dogs shat with an old man's feet in her lap.

    She wanted to spend her hours as she wished, weaving ribbons for the night sky.

    Summary

    "It is most important to attract neutral shipping to our shores in the hope especially of embroiling the United States with Germany…For our part we want the traffic — the more the better; and if some of it gets into trouble, better still."

    Ali asked, "Who is Winston Churchill?"

    "A very unhappy man right now."

    What if the Churchill letter had leaked, and how might the Revolt in the desert have turned.

    Summary

    101955 Bennu hurtled alone in the void. It wasn't all bleak. Xie was an Apollo asteroid. So, xie had a near solar orbit, which wasn't exactly close. There were other Apollo asteroids, which xie never saw. Xie came close enough to Earth every few years to... not really be heard.

    So it was a complete surprise the moment that Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx for short) came calling.

The Duke's proposal felt less like an offer and more like a lead weight in the hands of a drowning woman. There were so many reasons to say yes. It felt selfish to say no.

    Summary

    Jonathan felt as exposed as a mountain peak, while David's face was the lake that gave nothing back but the empty blue of the sky. He felt spun around by David. Though he was the prince and a man grown, and David was just a shepherd boy. Jonathan was the one mastered.

    David laughed. "If one of us is a lake, it is you. While I am the wind, the Lord sends to the lake and the mountain."

    Summary

    When Aeschylus had sacrificed an old black goat to Ares, his prayer had been for an old soldier to join the city guard of the island of Aegina. Someone with strong nerves and the calm that came from many campaigns. Someone who'd put away the idea of glory. Someone who could handle the wealthy citizens, drunk sailors and visiting Athenians.

    That was why he'd prayed to Ares. Also, he couldn't very well pray to Athena given the problems with Athens. Ares was a god of city guards, or so he'd heard. So, he gave Ares an old goat.

    The man mountain who applied for the job was a bit slower on the mental oars than he'd hoped, and Aeshylus couldn't blame the man, boy really, for Aeshylus' inability to keep his eyes off the muscles on Thêritas of Thrace's muscles. But beggars couldn't be choosers.

    As it happened, it was fortunate that he hired Thêritas. Practically a miracle.
