Anonymous asked: Rereading chapter 13 and came across this line regarding Jack's outfit for the meeting with Lord Tarr: "It makes him look roguish. Pirate-like. All he needs is a scar and he's set." *glares* You're an evil, evil author. ;)
Why yes. Yes I am :D
Title: The heavy weight of duty 16/?
Summary: Jack is the youngest prince of the moon kingdom, and it’s a good life. All the important roles are filled by his older brothers and sister so he spends his days having fun with his friends.
And then one day his father tells him that it is time to do his duty as a prince. A peace treaty has been drawn up with the land of shadows, and Jack is to be an integral part of that.
He is to be given to the Nightmare King as a courtesan
Anonymous asked: I read how you gave explanations of what magical powers Jack siblings had, and I suddenly remembered this line from chapter 1: "Jamie takes his place beside Jack, putting a hand to the Dome. While his own aura is nowhere near as strong as Jack’s, the purples and golds of his magic flicker brightly." Does this mean that Jaimie has magical powers too? If so, what are they?
Yep, near everyone in Lunanoff has magic.
As for Jamie, his magic is in essence similar to the moon king’s, based around light, but he’s nowhere near as powerful. He mostly uses it to entertain his sister or his friends, putting on light shows for them. He can also use it for defence - when he and Jack used to play at sword-fighting he used to make a shield of light to block Jack (which Jack, who didn’t have a shield, declared cheating). Since his magic was never that powerful he never had more than the standard Lunanovan magical training. He’s always been more interested in using his magic to make people smile than for fighting. To him, making people smile is a special kind of magic all of its own.
Anonymous asked: Okay, first I wanna say I love your story. It is amazing and has sent me on an emotional roller coaster. However, ch 15 hurt. And I have to ask this question to put my fears to rest. Will Jack's scar affect the relationship between him and Pitch? Pitch still finds Jack beautiful and the flaw in his good looks won't cool the passion between them, right?
Jack’s worried that it might.
For once, he felt like he had people that cared about him - he felt *loved*. But given how he’s been treated in the past by his family who *should* have loved him, he’s felt far from secure in that affection. Now that everything is shifting beneath his feet, his doubts have returned. Is Pitch still attracted to him, even with the scar? Though Pitch has told Jack that he loves him, their relationship is based on that portrait that was given to Pitch by Ben, when Jack was whole and beautiful. He hates feeling so shallow and obsessed with his looks, but that’s what this whole thing was based on, wasn’t it? Without them, is there enough to keep Pitch interested?
There’ll be more on that in the next chapter or two, but poor Jack is feeling very uncertain of his place in Pitch’s heart right now.
(And eee thank you so much! :3)
Everything hurts (my back, my shoulders, my neck - it happens fairly often, it’s anxiety related and very annoying but for some reason worse that usual today) and I’m not going to get this update done tonight. I’m sure you’re all incredibly surprised (new followers: if I say I’m going to get an update done by a certain date, don’t believe me xD I’m terrible at judging how long things are going to take me).
But I found out that the hotel has wifi! So the fic will TOTALLY DEFINITELY be up tomorrow.
OH MY GOD
I LOVE IT I LOVE IT I LOVE IT
THEIR FORMAL WEAR
THEIR SMOKE ENTWINING
THANK YOU SO MUCH *CRIES*
