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 newest Starmark.

Sonnet hummed. “I came back for a whelping feast. Clarion took to me right off.”
“Mum thinks fatherhood would suit me.”

Sonnet really did have the sweetest smile.
