LMM 355: On the Contrary

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 with his share of interests.

On the Contrary

Poor Harmonious. He looked properly scandalized. Understandable, given canine sensibilities.

The others had arrived, as well. Sinder’s shoulders were shaking with barely-contained laughter as he hid his face against Juuyu’s shoulder.

The phoenix calmly inquired, “Are we certain he has the correct interests at heart?”

Argent, who was covering his eyes, took his time finding words.

Jacques ventured, “We’ve come to an understanding.”

Sinder tittered.

Argent glared.

Jacques promised, “The way forward is clear.”

“Thank you, Smythe. But did you have to snog the entire cabal?”

Non.” Jacques beamed at the assembly of dragons. “It was the other way around.”

  2. I love the image of Argent covering his eyes, unable to find words!

    So, so funny. Jacques definitely needs a harem of his own… he thrives under all that love and care and attention 🤗

  3. Sadly, every one of the dragon lords has surely four female bondmates. Perhaps there is another brother or nephew who likes males as Jacques does. Poor Jacques is trying forever to be decent. He is always saying: “I am gay”, but he can’t really live his life, an important part is missing. These dragons understand his need for loving touches, and they trust him. Such an affinity.

  4. I think Jacques needs his very own dragon(s)! This is a wonderful visual. I would love to see a FoxOfTwilight art based on this scene. That would be fun.
