Our beloved Empress1 very kindly offered up this short story that she wrote to share with us for Santacarius. It takes place early in the series, somewhere around EE1 or EE2 (I'm inclined to say after EE2, considering some stuff that happens in it toward the end), and involves Books being rescued from sex slavers in a brothel in Stumps.

(Yes, really. Sex slavers.)

Say thank you to Lindsay, everybody!

The ending, the beginning, the middle -- it's all wonderful!

That was AWESOME. Every part of it. I missed their earlier adventures. Thank you, Empress!  :-*

Thank you so much for this, Lindsay. It was an awesome short story :)

Hehe, you're welcome. The sex slavers and brothel setting are why it didn't make it to the main time, but I knew this group could handle it.  8)

I did see a little bit of foreshadowing there... never let anyone attach something to her head, hmmm?

You mean we're a naughtier bunch? ;) I laughed at the bathtub orgy scene. Not the kind of fantasy Amaranthe had, I think.

I snickered a bit at the bathing room naughtiness as well. Hedonismbot would be proud

Once you've made sure that the signal gets through
There's one final thing that I want you to do
Put me where I'll see stars, so that I can see you
And I'll soar like a leaf on the wind

I couldn't help but snicker at the bathroom scene as well XD The setting was interestingly funny to say the least ;)
Also, the moment you mentioned the button I screamed FORESHADOWING!! Thank you, this was lovely. I'm growing fat from all the extra stories about Am and Sic.
Party the hardest on Wednesdays :)
