    Summary

    Monster. A word thrown around a lot in the Eastern European mountains, where a tormented Romanian village resides. The Villagers whisper of mechanical monstrosities, living dolls, grotesque fish, a sadistic priestess, werewolves and the blood sucking vampires.

    If you were to be accepted by any of these so-called beasts, would that make you a monster too?

    Humanity, would say yes. The "Monsters", would say no. Melissa does not answer the question. When Death offered her a role on their side, she accepted without another thought. She didn't know what the "Monsters" thought of that. She didn't care what Humanity thought of that. But she did know one thing:

    She would be one hell of a maid.

    Summary

    The problem with crossbreeding compatible species is that you have no idea what sort of throwback traits and mutations the resultant hybrids are going to display.

    Those with access to the Flames of Dying Will all have a bit of Other in their ancestry. Something that is both more and less than Human, and Skies are the least Human of all the Flame Types.

    Putting a Sky under a Seal puts their Flames under pressure. Like the Nightingale in a cage who refuses to sing, a Sky under a Seal suffers in silence...

    ... until that seal breaks, and the Sky roars to cast the heavens down.

    Summary

    To be frank, she hadn't ever really thought of leaving the village. Well, not forever at least.

    It was all she'd ever known, it was the only place she knew how to be who she was. She knew how to be an orphan, she knew how to be an errand runner, she knew how to survive. She knew what to bring the ladies Dimitrescu so they never thought to bring her inside their castle, she knew to greet Miss Beneviento in public but never to even step foot on her property. She knew she did not even want to bother with Salvatore Moreau and she knew how to be just useful enough for Heisenberg. She did not know how to be anything else.

    But, the village was not safe. Despite what everyone else seemed to think, this was not true. Sacrificing the few for the good of the many did not strike Neci as safe, even if the many then got to lead, normal, dull, toll driven lives. The village was not safe.

    Watching her neighbor get his throat ripped out outside, a part of the many, Neci winced. The village was not even a little safe. Maybe she should have thought more about moving on.
