@Orcish -- I implied back in Corrosion that something passed from the God-King into Ophelia during her service ("[...] his spirit infest my body and leave behind the nightmares of a hundred lifetimes that have built up inside me for a decade."). The line in Forest Fire is heavily typo'd though. It should be "He gazed into Ophelia Lumara's eyes, and she simply stared back at him, power coursing through her, beneath the skin." Okay, one bad word but it makes it very, VERY hard to parse.

Okay, now I follow. Thanks, Tevish! I just wanted to be sure I had the inside scoop on Ophelia.

@OL: There really isn't much to know about Space: the Convergence, as it was only created for a single article several years ago. I had to extrapolate a lot of stuff, especially since the "canon" Space article was written pre-mending. Which reminds me, I'm going to make a small edit to the Vasilias dossier. I called my Mending-analog "the Restoration", and only a few days ago did I realize that I could call it "the Alignment". As in, the Galaxy Core star was dying, and they had to reignite it by forcibly aligning the Psi Origin planets to create some kind of super psi beam or whatever. I don't know, it still makes more sense than the actual Mending storyline.

Everything I've glanced at so far in this thread has been great. I need to take time to go through it all and give comments but wow, this was an excellent idea.

Okay, got a challenge for someone.

A story told from the perspective of Mira on her own before Tryst put her to sleep. Preferably something not gut wrenching.

Considering all I can think of is Mira adorably pulling on his facial hair... Yes.

That's an interesting one!

The related challenge I've been pondering is what Mira might be like as a young woman.

You didn't think I was going to say that, did you?

Admittedly not!

* * *

Also, it occurs to me that, since her name has never actually been mentioned in a story, I ought to just be clear that Mira is Tryst's daughter.

I kind of think that everyone probably figured that out already. But, no harm in just saying it, I suppose.

I throw a gauntlet. On it is embroidered, "Ellia finds a Crucible of Worlds."

I... could have sworn it was mentioned in The Hand that Feeds... Or at least an early draft of it.

You remember correctly! It was in all of the original drafts. I took it out in the very last revision.


I find that name pretty ironic consider Tryst's most recent story.

Kneeling at her daughter's bedside, Tryst gently brushed a strand of black hair away from the sleeping girl's face.

Then she turned to stare at the poet, and her yellow eyes blinked in the darkness.

"From the moment she was born, and I saw her face? I knew that nothing else would ever matter," the devilkin whispered. "I knew she was my miracle."

Pseudo resuscitating this thread with a prompt (that I... honestly kind of doubt anyone will take!)

Write a story about when Zhiran recruited either Terina (his current apprentice) or the Marquis d'Hyon (his oldest living apprentice).

Both are featured in Shadows, for reference sake.

The Shifter grinned. "How do you like your new friend, dear Mira?"

There was, of course, no reply.

Picking up one of my own gauntlets from some time ago. (Is that the height of vanity, like quoting yourself?)

Anyway, here we go:
