    Summary

    In the middle of a rainy night, just as Csaivo's season brings Amalo back to life, I am startled out of my sleep by a pounding on my door.

    The three guardsmen at the door are, for a moment, everything I have feared. But then one of them steps forward, and the slash of gas-light across his face reveals something else beneath the sternness, a mirror of my own anxiety that quells my particular panic as perfectly as if it has been canceled out. "Othala Celehar?" he asks. "There is an emergency. Will you come?"

    Summary

    They were fucking again.

    Silas Mason stabbed the needle through the dozen sheets of paper he was stitching into a pamphlet with a little more force than was strictly necessary. He’d been living with the Gordons—the Vane-Gordons—Alexander and Euphemia for six weeks now, in the cramped set of rooms they’d been renting a couple blocks from Theobald’s bookshop, and he regretted every moment of them.

    (or: Love in the Time of Pamphleteering?)
