LMM 331: Compatible Companions

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 one who’s overdue for some pampering.

Compatible Companions

Though Hisoka and Lapis frequently came to Stately House for sleep, this was their first overlap. New possibilities. And challenges. Jacques caught Canarian’s elbow. “Does Hisoka’s usual suite have enough room for whatever you have planned?”

“With some small adjustments.” He rubbed their cheeks together and murmured, “Leave the arranging to me and Cat.”


They went on ahead, and Jacques moved to shore up a listing Lapis. “Have you never groomed with felines? I should think you highly compatible.”

“Dragons and cats?” he asked dubiously. “Why?”

“Lord, yes. Flirting with dragons is exciting.”

“Me? Exciting?” Lapis drooped pitifully. “Hardly.”
