    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

    Summary

    Various one shots that take a look at the familial dynamics of various symbiotes and their hosts.

    Posted for Symbruary 2020 Day 9: Family

    Ever since it had returned to her, she hadn’t asked it to leave.

    It had taken getting used to, this silent voice in the back of her head, craving from her something she’d never thought to offer: motherhood.

    It let Tanis work with it. In return, she fed it. She cared for it.

    It loved her.

    She lived with it.
