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 never relaxes his standards.

“Your timing couldn’t be better,” called Sinder. “Harmonious wanted you summoned. You’re ahead of schedule. Welcome to the cabal!”
Jacques’ chin lifted. “I can’t attend a cabal looking like this.”
Sinder’s whistle wasn’t the complimentary kind. “Damp and disarray really aren’t your style.”
“Juuyu! Mon cheri!” Jacques pressed close. “You understand the needs of curls. Be a dear, and set me to rights?”
