Chapter 21

“…I hate to admit it, but you’re right.” A disappointed scowl burned on Andie’s face. “We can’t win this fight, not now. We need to retreat and regroup. After we return to our physical bodies, we can plan at our leisure. So we need to split up, and -” “NO!” Cedric startled himself with his …[continue reading]

“You know I can’t do that, Mor-ee.” Ardjia glanced quickly around the room, just to make doubly sure everything was secure. “Conmer has a female treefol on his ship, and she might have used seduction to manipulate you.” “I know how rosearn are about trust, and I respect that – but I’m more than little …[continue reading]

Chapter 20

Cedric paced impatiently in front of the wisping, fiery red-orange dream smoke. When he, Andie, and Dyllan had split up to make a tactical retreat, everyone agreed that he should be the first to make his exit. After all, he was the least athletically inclined of the three and was, therefore, the most likely to …[continue reading]

“Well, I do believe that’s everything.” Ardjia smiled politely and gestured toward the room’s exit. “We keep the actually good art in section G3, so why don’t you browse there while Conny and I catch up and discuss business.” “You know, I can tell you’re just trying to get rid of me so I don’t …[continue reading]

Chapter 19

For a solid ten seconds, silence hung over the mindscape as Dark Andie pried her way out from underneath Dyllan. “Well, now…” She hopped upright and dusted herself off. “Someone needs to watch where they’re aiming.” Dark Dyllan marched unflinchingly toward Dark Andie and normal Dyllan. “I was watching just fine.” Trailing behind Dark Dyllan …[continue reading]

“…So that’s it then? I can go now?” Renz hesitantly arched an eyebrow. “You just wanted to make sure I didn’t back stab your brother? At least, not through a handful of very specific methods… Man, rosearn friendship is weird.” “Yeah, yeah… I know how you marks feel about giving gifts and doing favors, but …[continue reading]

Chapter 18

Andie swung her sword with all the might she could muster, a measurement growing less impressive by the second. Once again, her desperate blow was deflected by her monochromatic counterpart. She needed a plan, and a good one too. “Aw… What’s the matter?” Dark Andie slashed her cobalt blade at normal Andie, successfully wounding her …[continue reading]

Chapter 56

“A ‘bad first impression,’ huh?” Incredulity fell across Renz’s face. “Well, that’s certainly one way of putting it.” “…Are you always this sassy?” Ardjia’s voice prickled with mild irritation, as if she’d just dropped an ice cream cone off a ledge. “Or is this that stupid ‘spite’ thing again.” “A little of both, really.” Renz …[continue reading]

Chapter 17

Andie took a deep breath. It had been a little over a minute since her mirror image had attacked her out of the blue, and so far the fight was going well. Too well. Suspiciously well. She found her gaze being drawn to a splotch of shadowy goo on her sword – the same kind …[continue reading]

Chapter 55

“…Alright.” Ardjia took a deep breath and tightened her grip on her mask. “So, like I just said, you’re partly right. As much as we rosearn insist we don’t feel that horrible thing you call ‘trust,’ it’s not always true. But!” She held out her hand for emphasis. “But! That’s not because ‘rosearn don’t experience …[continue reading]
