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 found himself at Stately House.

“A reasonable comparison, though attainment is not limited to academic achievement. Michael is overseeing one facet of a larger rite of passage. Jiminy will be recognized as an adult male of his pack.”
“What was yours?”
Argent hesitated. “A journey.”
“Where did you go?”
He turned the question back. “Where would you go?”
