A/N: I’ve made some tweaks to my Patreon – check it out.  You can also check out a sample chapter of my Traditional Fantasy WIP “Shattered”. If pledges reach $50/month I’ll start posting on this site fortnightly (I have 20 chapters written so far).

A/N 2: Torvawk, I hope the email you leave when you comment is correct because I’ve sent you something. If not pop me a message via the contact form with the correct one and I’ll send it again.

“I’ll grab Dalrydan-mirian and ask to talk to Laxmi while I’m here,” Sonia said as she finished her drink. “Thank you for the tea, but I’m surprised that you have it. I was expecting some sort of herbal brew when you offered.”

Kadira chuckled. “Lyrrekka-ida isn’t the first twice-made you know. There was one who joined Ystelyan’s court about a century ago who missed the beverage and snuck back across to get some plants. He is a lifeweaver and was able to get them to grow well here and the drink proved quite popular.” Read the rest of this entry »

“It’s likely to take quite a while for every representative on the Council to record their messages,” Lin said. “So now we wait again. We have had a message back that they concur with our idea and they want Promise to record its kinds message as it is the only one they currently have contact with.”

“I will do that,” Promise’s reply came over the intercom. “I think my kind can form a mutually beneficial relationship with them as well since they’ll need hyperspace ships and it will take a while to grow any for them.” Read the rest of this entry »

Sonia took a seat at the other end of the couch from Andrew as Naria poured tea for her. “Thank you, dear.” She looked back to Kadira. “Now what did you want to talk about?”

“Forgive my impertinence in raising this, but I think you need to look to Andrew-idan’s well being. He’s been through a lot and with all that’s happened since, he’s been too busy to sort through it himself.” Read the rest of this entry »

Kadira smiled as Naria poured the tea for the three of them before sitting down herself.

“Naria was telling me about what is happening on Taloa just before you arrived, Andrew-idan,” Kadira said. “It sounds awful.”

“You don’t have to add the honorific,” Andrew said. “Andrew or Drew is fine. And yes, it is, and it’s all my fault. If only I hadn’t been so gullible, Emms wouldn’t have captured me.” Read the rest of this entry »

Nobody asked what the message said because it was clear from the way Lin closed her eyes and held her headphones to her ears that she was trying to block them all out while she translated the it. Instead they all stood in silence and waited for her to finish.

It took far longer than actually receiving the message had and she was obviously going over it several times. Eventually she nodded to herself and looked around at them. Read the rest of this entry »

The room Naria had pulled him into was a cozy sitting room decorated in cool blues and soft greens and lit by softly glowing crystal lamps.

The only people in the room apart from him and Naria were a dragon boy about the same age as Karilya and a tall, slender woman, who were seated on one of the comfortable couches. The woman had a spindle of pure mabain in her hand and appeared to be teaching the boy how to spin threads from it. Both of them bore a strong resemblance to Naria. Read the rest of this entry »

Indaturan was waiting for them in a quiet bed chamber which Talira had guided them to as soon as they arrived with Ken. Once Ken had been settled on the bed, Indaturan sat beside him, and laid a hand on Ken’s forehead and closed his eyes. After a moment he swore harshly in draconic and reopened them to stare at Sarah.

“The person who did this to him did it with a single psychic spike?” he asked.

Sarah nodded solemnly. “She did, and I’m sure it was deliberate. I’ve no idea how she managed it since it didn’t seem very controlled at the time but the damage seems targeted.” Read the rest of this entry »

A/N: As I mentioned last week I’ll be stopping taking prompts for a few weeks while I build up some buffer. (Torvawk, I’m saving your prompt from last week’s comments for when I tart taking them again).

The Bridge of the contact ship was partitioned as well, a fact which made Amanpreet frown. While Fish and Sticks could both be modified to carry passengers of multiple species quite easily they were usually only crewed by one species – or two for the Ishtari – because of their radically different physiological needs. Indeed Amanpreet had never heard of a multi-environment crew before but that was obviously what she was seeing here.

She mentioned it to Rick who laughed quietly. Read the rest of this entry »

An exhausted-looking healer was kneeling by the bed when Sarah led the group into the room where Ken was being treated. Ken was still unconscious and Arnold was kneeling on his other side, watching his brother with an anxious expression. Sarah cleared her throat and both young men looked around. The healer immediately leapt to his feet.

“Doctor Tyler! Thank goodness you’re here. I don’t know how much longer I can keep him breathing.” Read the rest of this entry »

“Come on,” Sonia said before hurrying towards stairs. Her face was pale and drawn. Lydia rather thought her mother felt as nauseated by what they’d just seen as she did. What she didn’t expect was to find Julie leaning against the wall just outside the squash courts shuddering violently.

“You aren’t actually going to leave her like that, are you?” Matthias asked.

Julie didn’t respond at once – she didn’t even look around – but eventually she shook her head slowly. Read the rest of this entry »
