These are side stories, more like bonus scenes or character studies, about the characters of The Eagle Court, The Crew of Esher Hill, Efe and Darius, and The Unnatural Philosophy of Kit March, posted as extras for my website/Tumblr followers and Patreon supporters. This is a chance for me to post little (or maybe not-so-little) one-off pieces about various references and occurrences made throughout the Marchverse that aren’t big enough for a longer story.
Please know that these may not (and often won’t) stand well on their own as a first introduction to the wider Marchverse.
I started writing these as an exercise in not being quite so perfectionistic in how I work, so they’re not as polished as the other Marchverse pieces, but I hope you’ll enjoy these little detours anyway.
Kit can’t find anything unfair about the contract or the man, so why is the ring so heavy?
Kit March is a signature away from marrying the man who loves him. He should be delighted, but for reasons he doesn’t understand and can’t explain, his future with Lauri weighs upon him. What is a magician to do when no script extant has words for the confusion he feels?
Darius Liviu: The Skin Game
The Skin Game takes place a couple of hours after One Strange Man and five days before The Adventurer King, seven years before Tes arrives at the College.
Yes or no, he can’t speak either.
Celebrating the retrieving of Akash’s necklace shouldn’t be a difficulty for Darius Liviu, but even in the company of friends who accept his aromanticism, he can’t avoid one unrelenting truth: sex is complicated.
