Unkindness: Chapter Eight
Annie did not struggle as she was thrown into the cell, as the door was removed to make room, and the slow process of her immurement was carried out. When it was done and she was left alone in the pitch black, the sounds of the workers muffled and faded away, Annie slipped free from the ropes that bound her with ease. She remained sitting on the floor for a time before pushing herself up to move towards the bricks that sealed her in, and gently touched them. Annie couldn’t even cry. It felt like there was nothing left in her but a hollowness she had never felt before, even years ago when she had been so ready to die. Whether she lived

Unkindness: Chapter Seven
Elias stood outside the door for a long time, listening to the women mutter, before he turned and let them be. He was filled with an array of emotions he wasn’t used to, and didn’t particularly like. Suddenly everything seemed so much clearer, and yet it was more confusing than ever. Was the Mystery of Annie really so easily solved by some feminine emotion he thought she had been immune to? It didn’t seem right. But it did explain a lot. It explained her devotion to her work, to him, and why the rest of the manor considered her to be so stoic and frigid. Though it still didn’t make sense. Elias wasn’t a fool. He

Unkindness: Chapter Six
The night Elias went to retrieve Elle was an unpleasant one for Annie. She wasn’t exactly sure, but she thought she felt guilty, like whatever was happening to Elle was her fault. That was new. Annie wasn’t used to feeling bad about anything she did. Finally Annie managed to get to sleep after taking twice her usual dose from her sleeping draft. This proved to be an ultimately useless move as at the crack of dawn Elias threw the door open to her room, something he had never done before, and barged in. “Anastasia! Get up quickly, I have fantastic news!” Still in the grips of her sleeping potion, Annie grumbled into h

Unkindness: Chapter Four
As the years passed Annie cemented her place in Elias’s circle of his most useful servants. Besides being the most dedicated of them, she was counted with Duncan as one who traveled with him at all times when they moved from place to place. Usually a small contingent of people of varying uses were left at each manor, on each ship, and hidden in each den of iniquity disguised as a mid price hat shop. Annie had proven herself too many times as both a robber and a spy to be left behind, so she traveled with her lord. Annie found a life of travel agreed with her, and she especially enjoyed the time spent on the sea, which seemed to please

Unkindness: Chapter Two
Slowly, very slowly, Annie cracked her eyes open. Upon arriving at the manor that was one of the many places Elias called home, Annie had been unceremoniously dumped in one of the rooms in the servants quarters. Even in the beginning Annie had instantly loved it. Yes, the room was about the size of a large closet, the walls and floors were cold, bare stone, and the only window in the room was small, high up, and bared, but it was HERS. The small bed was the softest thing she had slept in for years. The soft light from the window was so much less harsh than the glaring light of dawn waking her from the street. The grey stone of the room was c

Unkindness: Chapter One
“You can’t open it?” Elias was glaring darkly at the locksmith he reluctantly came to when his way barred by some damnable object or door that DARED to deny him entry. As much as Elias hated to admit defeat, not that he was, the locksmith had never before failed to prove a useful tool. Now, however, the plump old man was trembling under Elias’s murderous eyes and grinding teeth. A box with no apparent openings or fastenings sat on the counter between them. Elias had been trying to open it for a month since he ‘liberated’ it from a competitor, and no amount of magic or manipulation of it would open the damn

Considering reworking Unkindness. Make it make more... sense. Focus more on the interpersonal relationships. I have a much better feel for Annie now, and I look at a lot of my earlier writing and thing it's completely out of character for her. It's s ...

Something special on the way
So, while I figure out how to handle the Honeymoon Period, I am writing a small smut piece with Elias and Annie. To tired everyone over and to make sure you all get some of the smut I promised you ^_^ So I'm working on that, and it should be out over the next few days. Hope you guys enjoy it! It's fun to write, so far.

No problem! I LOVED Tatter Hood as a kid. She's one of the few women in faerie tales that is more than just a door prize. Plus, your take on her is wicked cool. LOVE the giant spoon.

Don't worry. I'll sit down to write it soon. The problem is that I have fibromyalgia, and have been pretty sick for the past two months. It sucks majorly. I've just had no energy to write. I'm glad you like the story, and promise I'll be working on it again as soon as I'm able.

Ouch! Fibromyalgia... I hope better days will come soon, take care. Sending healing hugs your way Hug
