Well, hello there! :D

If you'll recall, not that long ago, we left our four heroes -- Daneera, Kerik, Aloise, and Beryl -- on the cusp of a double date.

(Okay, okay, so it was that long ago. I swear, I didn't mean to leave our intrepid daters cooling their heels for quite so long. I am a slow orc, I fear...)

Anyway, late is better than never, so let's see what the fantastic four have been up to, shall we?

Double Date, Part 3

Never underestimate the value of a very fine axe.

I assume Kerik has two axes. Back that axe up, you know?

HA!

Of course, that really puts an odd spin on the fact that the first time Daneera goes to Kerik's cabin, the first thing he does is throw his axe at her.

Maybe he just wanted her to check out his axe?

On one hand, I find it regrettable that we think it's rude/superficial to publicly appreciate a partner's body. On the other, this part is pure gold. Beryl's reaction are outrageously cute as usual, and I find it refreshing to give Aloise some physicality as well! For a moment I thought Daneera was gonna go full-TMI mode and tell them he was searching for a mate, too bad she caught herself at the last possible moment.

Oh, and the meeting between Daneera and Aloise is being hand waved so hard someone's gonna lose an arm soon :D My money was on the maitre, but he may get spared this time.

Thanks for reading, Huey! (And Raven, too!)

Well, I can't speak for anyone but myself, but I, for one, don't think there's is ever a wrong time to appreciate your partner's axe.

I mean, just the other day, I was walking out in the yard, and I noticed that Mrs. OL was splitting some firewood. And, I mean, she was doing a tremendous job of it -- I was really admiring the way that she was using her axe. So I told her: "That's a great little axe you've got there!" And she certainly seemed to appreciate that comment, so that's one point of evidence in favor.

And then, maybe later that week, I was polishing all the tools in the toolshed -- you know, just trying to make sure that they weren't getting rusty, or anything like that. And I noticed that the axe had a really nice sort of patina to it -- a really nice bluish, steelish sort of tone -- so I'll admit that I maybe put a little extra effort into getting that axe all nice and buffed. At which point Mrs. OL came in, and saw what I was doing, and make a point of remarking: "That's a really buff axe you've got there. Very nicely toned." And I know that I certainly appreciated the nice things that she said about the way that I was working that axe, so that's yet another data point right there, I think!

(I am a terrible person. :D)

Like everything else OL writes, that was pretty great. But if any more innuendo gets posted in this thread, I think it's liable to explode.

Thank you so much for reading, CKY!

I know, right? The tension is so thick, you could practically cut it with an axe!

Fortunately, this next installment is almost double entendre free! :)

Fortunately, the fae seem like a very forgiving, understanding people, who would never hold it against Daneera if she and her party were to, say, ditch on the check.

Right?

We'll be seeing a werewolf in a kitchen apron washing dishes before this is over, won't we?

This is SO Daneera :D

Thanks -- as always! -- for reading, CKY and Huey! I hope you're having fun with this one!

Oh, Daneera...

:D

Feel like I have some good momentum going, all of a sudden. Hopefully, we'll have another chapter soon!

It amuses me greatly to think that Daneera is now Lady Daneera, Fae Noble. I can only imagine what the staff would think of her were she introduced as such...

:D

Anybody want to take a whack at these adorable little gents?

I was having a lousy day, but then I saw this and Aloise just melted my heart. Wonderful stuff, OL, as always.
