I provided the flora and fauna, Alec provided the weaponization. [Sep. 5th, 2013|09:28 am]
Marissa Lingen

Today at Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Alec and I have a new story for you: “On the Weaponization of Flora and Fauna”. It’s got colonialism and rare birds and the risk of being turned to stone by the imperial basilisk. I’m pretty pleased with this one–it’s one of my favorite things Alec and I have written together–so I hope you like it too.

Oh dear, he brought it back with him? Oh. Oh dear.

That was fun!

Oh, he fully plans to make full use of a...one of those. When he gets there. Hee.

As I just told Alec, a fine story and thanks for telling us it's up.

Oh, I did like this one so much! Such snark and dispatch! Very unfair to Calixtas; however, I assume she will make somewhat more than the best of it and the King may be sorry.

That is the general thought, yes.

Indeed; I quite liked the pieces of the ending. A bit of a sense of having won by being very clever but having forgotten to ask whether winning was desirable.

It makes a person wistful for the sequel -- and I'm fairly sure there is one, though of course it may always only exist in the implications of this one. But with implications like these, that's a fairly solid existence as it is!

Interesting.

Though, for some reason, I was almost hoping the other character would emerge victorious.
