manderelee sent: For the 3 sentence fic, can I get a Slorn/Nivel? I feel like they're often overlooked in the (already small) fandom. XD

artemiswanderer:

Oh my, I love Slorn but this was hard. XD I haven’t read Spirit War or Spirit’s End yet, so no idea if I’m missing information about them.

"I keep having the same dream, Slorn," Nivel whispered quietly, her fingers pressed to her temples, "Like someone is calling me, over and over again from the mountains." Slorn reached over the bed to press his strong fingers gently into Nivel’s shoulders, his large frame casting a shadow over hers and said gently, "I’m sure its just nerves - the baby is due any day now; this time…it’ll be okay, I promise." Nivel took a deep breath, nodded, and straightened her back, the swell of her stomach pushing the blankets away as Slorn, his deep eyes crinkling in pride and happiness, smiled at her. Four days later, Nivel gave birth to a healthy girl; the day after, she vanished.

Finally, Josef settled for a thick, black shirt from his own pack.

"I guess that will do," Eli said and sighed. "Just be sure to scowl a lot; that way no one will get close enough to notice the mended stab holes and bloodstains."

"I do wash it," Josef said. "Anyway, it fits me better than the guy I took it off."

Eli gave him a startled look. “I don’t think I want to hear any more about your brand of shopping.”

Josef shrugged. “It’s not like he was using it.”

Eli left it at that.

#16. No one runs forever.

Eli closed his eyes as the lava spirit sank into him and fell into a grumbling sleep. Karon was probably right. He probably should be planning an escape, or at least a new plot to get Benehime to let him go of her own will again, but he just couldn’t summon up the energy to care. He could almost feel Benehime’s hand on his throat. She had him good and tight now, and every time he tried to think about the future, all he could see was endless white.

He’d been so arrogant, thinking he could run forever. He’d forgotten the first rule of thievery: no one runs forever. 

  Spirit’s End by Rachel Aaron

She made no sound, only shivered as the whiteness flooded over her body, washing away her color and her humanity in a great bleaching tide. Her skin was now as white as the floor she knelt on, as white as the robe across her shoulders.

“As he blacked out, he felt Nico’s hands on his face. “Thank you for saving me,” she whispered.  “We save each other,” he said.  “That’s why we’re here.”  He felt a soft brush on his forehead.  Her lips, he realized.  That thought made him grin wide as he slipped into blissful unconsciousness, his fingers tangled in her short, soft hair.”  ~Spirit’s End,  The Legend of Eli Monpress, Rachel Aaron

LoEM Omnibus Birthday!

I have this habit of dating my books (as in writing the date when I bought them - not actually *dating* books). And according to the date on my Legend of Eli Monpress omnibus, today it turns 1! Yay! Which means I’ve been obsessed with this series for er… almost a year. Not quite a year, since I didn’t start really going gaga over the series until I finished Spirit Rebellion.

Check under the “read more” for a great sketch of Nico!

#15. Never be without a quick exit.

Eli shrugged and stood, taking his wineglass with him. “I’m going to poke my nose down around the castle,” he said, refilling his glass to the rim from the bottle on the mantel. “Do a little goodwill work with the spirits, just in case we have to make a quick getaway.”

Josef ignored the stab of bitterness that came with that. “What makes you think we’ll be leaving?”

“First rule of thievery: Never be without a quick exit,” Eli said, sipping the top of his now very full glass. “Of course, there’s also the fact that you just walked in from a meeting with a powerful man who doesn’t like you very much looking like you’re ready to kill something. Even without the rules, that’s reason enough for me.”
