Claimer: I do hereby claim all rights and responsibility for the characters in this series of vignettes because the Amaranthine Saga is mine. (Which means I should probably behave myself since anything I say or do could be taken as canon.) Indulge the lot of us, especially the wordless one.

“A wimp around reavers?” Jacques prodded a vast rib. “Are you allergic or something?”
Argent’s lips twitched. “Ask him later. Over tea.”
