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 ones turning heads.

“He’s shy of newcomers,” Paltry said apologetically. “Especially those who come through the back door.”
Jacques asked, “Why?”
“You saw his true face. Front door customers see something else. Though I’m not sure our little tricks would have altered your perception. Argent wants you to see clearly.”
“I’m immune?” Since becoming Argent’s confidante, Jacques had willingly become a sigilcraft test subject. “You may rely upon my discretion.”
In the tearoom, they turned heads. Jacques didn’t mind that. But when Sonnet poured, his manner grew disturbingly familiar. “Lord. Are you mothering me?”
