LMM 107: Dramatic Equivalence

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 for the unabashedly monogamous ones.

Dramatic Equivalence

“My feelings for you are what define me?”

Argent huffed. “You sound surprised.”

Jacques gaped. “Given the circumstances, wouldn’t they disapprove?”

“You left your kin and crossed land and sea, abandoning everything to join with me here.”

Nearly everything. There had been eight suitcases to wrangle at the baggage claim.

Argent continued, “This is comparable to a wolf leaving their pack in order to join a dog clan. To turn away from the moon, to lose their tail, to take a new name. These departures take a special kind of courage, usually born of love….”

Unrequited love.”

“…or mutual respect.”
