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 disappointed one.

“And Timur…?” Argent pressed.
“…was hoping to settle down.”
Jacques lowered his gaze. That one? Oh, yes. That he could imagine.
