"When I woke in the dark under that tree on the road to Leoch, with you sitting on my chest, cursing me for bleeding to death, I said to myself ‘Jamie Fraser, for all ye canna see what she looks like, and for all she weighs as much as a good draft horse, this is the woman."

I started toward him, and he backed away, talking rapidly. “I said to myself, “She’s mended ye twice in as many hours, me lad; life amongst the MacKenzies being what it is, it might be as well to wed a woman as can stanch a wound and set broken bones.’ And I said to myself ‘Jamie, lad, if her touch feels so bonny on your collarbone, imagine what it might feel like lower down…’” 

He dodged around a chair. “Of Course, I thought it might ha’ just been the effects of spending four months in a monastery, without benefit of female companionship, but then that ride through the dark together-” he paused to sigh theatrically, neatly evading my grab at his sleeve- “with that lovely broad arse wedged between my thighs”-he ducked a blow aimed at his left ear and sidestepped, getting a low table between us-“and that rock-solid head thumping me in the chest”-a small metal ornament bounce off his own head and went clanging to the floor-“I said to myself…”

He was laughing so hard at this point that he had to gasp for breath between phrases. “Jamie… I said… for all she’s a Sassenach bitch… with a tongue like an adder’s… with a bum like that… what does it matter if she’s a f-face like a sh-sh-sheep?”

Bringer of Spring



It’s the First Day of Spring, and Persephone is preparing to depart for the upper world.  A century may have passed since she made the famous compromise, but saying farewell is still far from easy.

Bringer of Spring is a collaboration between me and my lovely friend kata-chthonia, awesome writer and author of Receiver of Many.  It’s been three months in the making, so I’m very excited to finally show it to everyone.  Please click the “Read More” to see the rest, and I hope you enjoy! :)

(Apologies in advance to mobile users. There are lots of images!)

Edit 8/5/14: Finally posted the art that was originally planned as the ‘cover’ for the comic. :)  Check it out!

It’s like I’ve haven’t even noticed how the people around me really feel. Not to mention how I feel. About the people around me. […] I mean it.
