In her dream, Komachi sees him again. He is dressed informally in an autumn-colored hunting outfit, talking in a palace courtyard with some young men about his age -- all just starting up the ladder of court offices. But she barely notices the others, not while she strains to see him, to hear his words amid the chatter. He is brightness incarnate, a star among humans, a blazing fire in mortal guise -- half-hidden a crowd of shadows.
The men laugh together, himself included, and she nearly scorches.

In which a moe anthropomorphism mascot meets a PSA mascot.
Or, just another day making charcoal in the forest.
The watching crowd parted, and the two men within turned to face Shamhat. She swore silently. Not just ‘big’ visitors—the biggest. She barely kept herself from bowing to Gilgamesh. As a temple’s head priestess, even here in Uruk’s most distant village with more hunters and herders than farmers, she was his equal in honor.
But she did approach the king for the second time in her life. “In the name of Morning Inanna, welcome.”

Penelope was waiting, waiting, always waiting. What did she do besides weave?
Well, for one thing, she ruled.

Things that enliven a winter's day--The guileless chatter of a small child. The sound of some low-born person passing by out in the cold, while you are inside in the warmth. Reading out loud. A witty acquaintance coming to visit, and not staying so long as to wear out their welcome.
