Who Should I Be Today?

Who Should I Be Today?

This is something of a call-back to the first prompt I ever wrote (which starts with the same line). I thought it would make an interesting juxtaposition since Cazella and Silkfoot achieve basically the same thing via two drastically different methods. Cazella makes herself into the person she thinks others want her to be by …

Robin is Really Smart

Robin is Really Smart

This was a random sequence that popped into my head one day and stuck around. Sometimes these are my favorite kind of scenes to write. This may not be a defining moment in Domerin’s life, nor even in Robin’s, but it is certainly one that Domerin lingers over when he thinks of his experience with …

Several months ago we started working on a behind-the-scenes incident with one of my characters so that certain things would be set …

A Different Battlefield

Guards were a normal sight around the palace. Usually they faded into the background, forgotten or ignored, a regular piece of the …

Like a Ghost

Like a Ghost

It’s been awhile since we heard from Silkfoot. I thought we should fix that. . . . Thomas Valladon knew something was off the moment he opened the door. It was a stormy night, the rain so heavy it bounced several inches off every surface it collided with. Thunder rumbled in the distance, threatening to …
