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 loves the theater.

“Kind of flash,” said Nonny. “Bit lush. Right cheeky. And randy.”
“Nonny!” Michael sounded scandalized.
Jacques covered his eyes… and felt a sudden sympathy for Argent. “Lord. Really, Nonny?”
Cat laughed. “What you see from the house rarely betrays what’s happening backstage. You wouldn’t guess it to look at us, but Canary’s the ‘fun dad.’ A complete pushover. I’m the responsible one.”
