  1. Pippa was tempted to ask why he'd described the...

    Pippa was tempted to ask why he'd described the river as 'safe' when it concealed snapping monsters in its muddy depths, but the girl just cringed and shook her head. "I hope he still has all his...
  2. The guard listened without lifting her head as...

    The guard listened without lifting her head as Percy spoke of the river, and she smiled to herself as she felt his laughter rumble through his chest. "Much different than Eddleton, then," she said,...
  3. Pippa looked to Corran over Vicky's head as she...

    Pippa looked to Corran over Vicky's head as she squeezed the girl back, curious about his decision to stay in Hebron. She hadn't even known it was a thing he was considering, and while she wasn't...
  4. It was a little crazy how easily Pippa settled...

    It was a little crazy how easily Pippa settled against Percival's chest, and how neatly she fit there. He was comfortable and warm, and she wasn't bothered at all when his arms wrapped around her,...
  5. Pippa did not entirely believe him, that most...

    Pippa did not entirely believe him, that most women weren't prone to falling for his stories. In her experience women - and possibly people in general - were gullible, and wanted to be impressed. ...
  6. Pippa watched the exchange between Corran and...

    Pippa watched the exchange between Corran and Victoria, bemused and yet feeling a little bit like she was cheating. But the little girl easily blew through the technicalities that stood in her way,...
  7. Settling back in her chair, with the girl perched...

    Settling back in her chair, with the girl perched on her lap, Pippa felt somehow better about the situation, even though she were no more in control now than she had been moments ago. She had one...
  8. The insight into Guy's character was interesting...

    The insight into Guy's character was interesting and, if her immediate future unfolded down one path before her, Pippa felt it might come in handy, too. "He's not wrong," she observed, although her...
  9. "It didn't get that far," Pippa said, the hint of...

    "It didn't get that far," Pippa said, the hint of a bemused smile on her face. She knew - and Corran might've, as well - that she wouldn't have been able to best the Knight of Autumn, but they both...
  10. Pippa frowned to find that the maid hadn't...

    Pippa frowned to find that the maid hadn't delivered her message. It seemed pretty important to her, to let the current master of the house know when armed men had come to take away a member of his...
  11. The guard laughed and nodded, agreeing with the...

    The guard laughed and nodded, agreeing with the sentiment of Percy's observation. She couldn't help but think that if both of them found themselves in that situation - armed, but naked - she'd be...
  12. Now that she was faced with the conversation,...

    Now that she was faced with the conversation, Pippa wished she'd spent more of her walk home thinking about what she was going to say and not about the one man her boss was likely to have a problem...
  13. A Change in the Stars - 11/12, morning, Delarose residence, Corran/Pippa/Vicky?

    The guards who had led her to the barracks had been right to assume she knew the way fairly well, which was good, since on the way back Pippa was barely thinking about where her feet were taking her....
  14. A part of Pippa wondered if it was true that...

    A part of Pippa wondered if it was true that she'd have to work harder to get him undressed. Was he the sort of man who would acquiesce, if she expressed interest? If she turned to him again, put a...
  15. What would strike Pippa later was the depth of...

    What would strike Pippa later was the depth of feeling in these moments. It wasn't even just the physical sensations, either, although she would be hard pressed to forget the feeling of easy...
  16. Pippa's lips curled into a smile at the 'old'...

    Pippa's lips curled into a smile at the 'old' designation placed on Corran by his former student, and she put a finger to her lips to promise she would keep it to herself. Although she knew now...
  17. "I'm not sure that's the proper way to defend...

    "I'm not sure that's the proper way to defend yourself, Lady Avery."

    If his cheek had been cool from the night air, his hand was anything but, and without even thinking Pippa leaned the slightest...
  18. "I'll have to tell you some time," Pippa said...

    "I'll have to tell you some time," Pippa said with a smile. "Or you could ask Corran. I'd love to know how he'd tell it." She sometimes wondered what the man had thought of her in the beginning,...
  19. Pippa made a gesture to grant that he was...

    Pippa made a gesture to grant that he was probably right about nobody being comfortable at the coronation. It made her feel a little bit better, though, to realize that she wouldn't be alone in her...
  20. Pippa shook her head at his apology, although she...

    Pippa shook her head at his apology, although she didn't go so far as to dismiss it. As unintimidated as Percy had found her to be that first morning, she couldn't ignore the divide in status here,...
  21. "Isn't being a pretty boy peacock more Xavier's...

    "Isn't being a pretty boy peacock more Xavier's thing," Pippa asked with laughter in her voice. Percy wasn't the one, after all, who had thrown a little fit when he'd gotten beer on his sleeve. ...
  22. The girl gave a nod to confirm the Torgood in...

    The girl gave a nod to confirm the Torgood in question, and again to assert that she was, indeed, training under Corran. She assumed a shared past was why he seemed somewhat incredulous, but not...
  23. "And what do you have to say for yourself? ...

    "And what do you have to say for yourself?

    Pippa didn't answer immediately. It wasn't that she didn't know; since the matter had come up more than once in the past few days, she'd come to know...
  24. "When you're in full plate?" Pippa made a sound...

    "When you're in full plate?" Pippa made a sound of dismissal, a short blow of air from her lips. "Please. I've carried bigger men than you, but I draw the line when plate is involved. Too heavy,...
  25. Durand's reprimand didn't cause Pippa to flinch;...

    Durand's reprimand didn't cause Pippa to flinch; if anything, she found herself getting more and more annoyed. She hated getting toyed with, and that was very much what this felt like. The longer...
