LMM 366: Pardon My French

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 a crush.

Pardon My French

“I hate them,” Nonny muttered.

“No, you don’t. You’re just jealous.”

“What’s so great about cats, anyhow?”

“Mmm… felines have a certain je ne sais quoi.”

“Is that French for sexy?”

“Nonny, what’s the rule we established with regards to my sex life?”

“It’s none of my business.” He grimly added, “Until I’m bloody well part of it.”

“Stop appending.” Jacques kept walking. “Your feelings are noted, and they are safe.”

“If I wanted safe, I wouldn’t have settled on you.”

“Too soon for that. Your voice hasn’t even fully settled.”

Nonny swore, his voice cracking… rather proving Jacques’ point.

  2. One thing I love about this world you’ve created is it’s such an open space for feelings and emotional needs. Nobody is ever shamed for wanting someone/something, for needing comfort or affection, and it’s so readily offered. Jacques acknowledges and is careful of Nonny’s feelings, and still looks after him with all his previous affection, just a few ground rules added for the tender heart. I sometimes feel like Tenma reading about this world and pining terribly for the sort of world you’ve built up. This whole series is like a warm fluffy blanket for my soul. ♡
