Fiction: Conception

With Kit gone to the Greensward, Amelia March is content with her faked witchery, the ailments of her villagers and romance confined to a novel. She isn’t pleased, therefore, to find her cousin darkening her doorway—her cousin with two feet, a belly, a sword of some distinction, a story, a young girl named Osprey, a beaming smile and an undying hatred for the elves. Still, Amelia thinks she can survive the chaos, at least until Kit announces a grand plan to start a school for divergent magicians…

Contains: A trans, demiromantic autistic who just wants to be alone with her cat; her trans, aromantic, autistic cousin set on upending her life; a mysterious weapon of mythical provenance; and a looming elfish threat.

Setting: Marchverse, nearly a year after Old Fashioned, many years before Certain Eldritch Artefacts. Don't try to read this without having first read Old Fashioned.

(Also, please continue to remember that Kit has a loose relationship to the concept of honesty and Amelia doesn't yet grasp this as well as she will. This also is something of a set-up for Darius's continued reflections on the College, not to mention future stories.)

Length: 7, 966 words / 19 pages.
