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 was in a den, like, yesterday.

“Mostly, I’m intrigued. What can I do?”
“I am beyond help.”
Like a gentleman, he didn’t pry. “Then may I distract you…?”
“Are you even gay?”
“Oh! Bi, actually. Although recent fascinations have me suspicious that I’m pan. But that isn’t what I meant.” From the inside pocket, Harrison produced a folded paper. “I’ll let you hold the grocery list.”
