    Summary

    “What happened to him?” Jade asked.

    “Diplomacy,” Stone said, bored like he hadn’t dragged her half-conscious first consort into the common room of the queen’s level and deposited him as a sodden lump in the middle of the rug.

    Summary

    Ember knew there was no point in trying to get Stone to dress up for the visitors from Emerald Twilight. Stone would do what he wanted regardless of what was proper, and even if Ember did somehow persuade him to put on some jewelry, it would probably look as odd on him as a necklace on a grasseater. He wasn't even sure if Stone owned elegant clothes - although he must, surely? The Arbora wouldn't allow the court's line grandfather to dress like a vagabond unless that was his preference. But Ember was sure somewhere there had to be some fine garments and jewelry that had been made for Stone, and maybe, just this once, he could convince him to do the socially appropriate thing...

    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

    “You need to stop monopolizing your consort,” Pearl said.

    Jade took another slow, dignified sip of tea. “I don’t know what you mean,” she said. Next to and slightly behind Pearl, Ember already looked deeply discomfited by the topic of conversation. Jade hid a smile behind her teacup.

    Summary

    Before Moon arrived at Indigo Cloud Court, the consort bower had been empty for some years and the court as a whole slowly dying. Something had to change. The three consorts of Indigo Cloud (Stone, Moon, and Ember) had had very different expectations, but the reality surprised each of them.

    Summary

    "What do they want? Why were they asking about Thorn and Bitter?" he demanded once she was close enough.

    Jade gestured for him to lower his voice, and said, "Sunset Water are considering the possibility of an alliance with Indigo Cloud. It's a good sign," she added, ignoring his scowl. "It means we're beginning to be accepted here in the Reaches, if they consider us worthwhile allies."

    "What kind of alliance, though?" Moon pressed, feeling uneasy.

    "One of their daughter-queens had a clutch three turns ago, including two queens..."

    She didn't need to finish the sentence - Moon suddenly understood with a sinking horror what they had been discussing. "You're going to send them away."
