    “What a lovely tradition,” Nicola said of bringing home fishy guests for the flower festival. “I hope you have a pleasant visit, little one~” and she booped the little fish on the nose. A voice exclaimed something off behind her and at first she didn’t register what they said. In a flurry of...

    Molly The things she knew, the things she thought she knew, and the things she still wondered crowded Molly’s head as she walked up the path. She hadn’t gone far from Magpie House before finding herself slinging her guitar off her back and sitting down beside the path, her back against a tree...

    Molly Molly blinked to hear Lockette suddenly share so much local lore. This felt more like what she’d come out here for, or would have if it had made more sense. Half a century? But I thought she said she personally had kept magpies in the tree? She eyed Riley quizzically. Magic could make...

    Nicola blinked, temporarily taken aback that Quill knew who she was (or at least who she was associated with). But they'd obviously made a quite explosive entrance in Port of Pearls (pun intended), and had also spent the better part of a week harassing every healer within a day's travel. If talk...

    "Well, all of the above, kind of. Tea included, actually, that would be wonderful, please." Nicola reached into her pilfered bag and retrieved her copy of the potion recipe, offering it to Quill. "But most importantly, I need to break a curse. This potion should do it, but I've only just...

    Nicola In contrast to Jackie’s thundering flight down the tower stairs, Nicola crept down them as quietly and quickly as she could. She wanted desperately to ask Cathal, if he had been a cat when she last saw him, how he had "fixed it" and stood before them as a (stupidly handsome) man today...

    Molly There was a tense moment as Riley looked around at everything- her feather, Molly, Lockette, the tree stump, etc.- through the stone, then passed it back as casually as it had been handed to her. She hung it back around her neck with a sigh of relief. “It is pretty neat, huh?” It took her...

    Well, shit. She’d really, really, really been hoping Riley wouldn’t ask that. But anything that can happen, will happen, as Godmother would say. “Sure,”Molly said, faking a casual air as she lifted the string from around her neck. It got tangled in her hair but after a second she got it off and...

    The roiling serpent had imprinted itself on Molly's brain, so although she knew her eyes weren't physically seeing it anymore, it was all she could think of when she looked at Lockette. She made what she hoped was a thoughtful face (as opposed to a nervous one), debating how truthful to be. It...

    The auras of the people before her were so strong and bright after only a few seconds Molly dropped the stone as if it were hot, barely stifling a hiss of pain. Her eyes watered like she'd been staring into the sun. "Oh, gosh!" she managed, stepping back and wiping the tears away. "I think the...

    The woman with long hair had such a friendly grin, the pink stayed in Molly’s cheeks as she returned it. Her gaze was fixed on the woman as she climbed down the ladder: she must’ve been around Molly’s own age but was dressed in an old-fashioned style much like Godmother used to prefer. This is...

    Molly While all of this was happening, Molly was having quite a lovely day. She stayed on the log and played for a good little while, delighted by the birds that came and went, some stopping and seeming to listen to her music. Some of these must be the finches Tuesday was talking to the other...

    The initial slam of her hands on the table surprised Nicola, both because of the sudden loud noise and that Jackie was solid enough to make the sudden loud noise. And it’s not that she wasn’t listening to her tirade, because she heard every word of it. But she also spent the whole thing trying...

    Speaking of Molly, she kind of wished her sister was there with her. She was so gentle and empathetic, and she knew Cathal (again, kind of), too. Nicola was sure she’d know what to say [author’s note: she would not]. But Molly wasn’t there, and everybody was freaking out, and she felt really...

    There was a moment where her brain short-circuited and she thought, sister? Her cheeks colored as Cathal shook her hand. He means Molly, you idiot. “We will!” she called brightly after him, then turned to Tom and Jackie, who were already off on their bit again. Hands on hips, drawing herself up...
