Rule of three #2: The resourceful Sorceress

October 12, 2011

Part One

This week, the focus is on Heiress Royale Samantha Brussard. I think I touched on all four prompts, in order from most directly to least directly:

  • One of the characters is revealed to be not who or she is
  • A character lies to another on an important matter
  • Someone is killed or almost killed
  • A relationship becomes complicated

Naveli let out a deep sigh as we walked into the tavern and she saw the waitress, and I tried not to roll my eyes in response. She thinks that she’s so discreet liking girls.

We split up without saying anything, Tom heading over towards the restrooms, Naveli taking a seat near her dusky darling… and me? I went up to the bar. “Excuse me; I’m wondering if you could help me find someone.”

“Certainly I can, your Highness,” the little bartender assured me. “Be you wanting more spells? If Magic Moments doesn’t stock what you’re after, then isn’t in Renaissance.”

I blinked and tried to keep my cool. “What makes you think that I’m royal?”

“Ah, that’d be my nose, Highness.” He lifted his somewhat long and pointy sniffer. “I can always smell out a magik-user, and such a great and beautiful Sorceress would have to be royal, now wouldn’t you? Which royal family, I can’t tell, except I think you’re not one of the Chang Dynasty.”

“Well, no I’m not,” I muttered. “And I’m not looking for more spells, or intelligent animals, or a fight. Is – has there been anybody particularly strange coming into town recently? Not counting my friends and me, I mean.”

“Particularly strange? Highness, this is Renaissance. Everybody here is strange.”

It’s nice to meet you, my name is Chris.

(My entry in the first Crusader challenge.)

I have a number of stuffed toy animals in my apartment, including teddy bears, owls, cats, mice, a pony in pyjamas, and possibly a rabbit.

I’m a sucker (pun intended) for the Twilight books.

I’m very stubborn and will often choose to go entirely the opposite way if somebody helpfully suggests what I should do. For just that reason, I refuse to bloviate in this post, or mention blades or anything fuliguline

I have a tendency to accumulate electronic devices of a variety of shapes, sizes, and functions.

I am quite intelligent and able to understand many complicated things fairly quickly.

I like to eat and love bacon-pepperoni pizza.

One of these factoids is not true – leave a comment and guess which one I lied about!
