LMM 501: Romantic

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 isn’t alone.


“Dogs were never meant to be alone.”

“Sonnet’s a wolf.”

“He’s a romantic. Wearing your colors. Wearing your scent. You enjoyed this trip.”

“There’s… this festival.”

“Oh, we wheedled that out of him. Among other things.” Catalan’s next kiss lingered. “Felines inspire intimacies. And we’re very good at secrets.”

“There’s no secret here. Just curiosity and… coming-of-age explorations.” Jacques sighed. “I’m a one-off.”

“I like thickness in a man, but you’re too much, even for me.” Catalan drew back. “Sonnet wants us, yes? To make peace. To share trust.”


“To be part of your circle of friends. Your pack.”
