Claimer: I do hereby claim all rights and responsibility for the characters in this series of vignettes because the Amaranthine Saga is mine.

“Hypothetically… or specifically?”
“Does the answer change from one to the next?”
Having already pledged honesty, Jacques could only say, “In your earshot? Probably.”
