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 ones who can caper.

“The boys?” Jacques narrowed his eyes. “Or Fend?”

Fend bared his fangs in a dangerous smile.

No crossers allowed.
