    Summary

    Martin gnaws his lower lip. “Do you think he’ll - I mean, do you think it’ll be…”

    Melanie's smile becomes a little less of a grimace. She claps his shoulder, not ungently. “Martin. It’ll be fine. It’s only temporary. He’s not moving in.”

    Martin chuckles. “Yes. Of course.”

    Summary

    Before everything, Celidae’s favorite place was buried in Martin’s hair. Trapdoor spiders don’t move from their burrows much, content to stay in one place and let their prey come to them. It meant she didn’t need to cram herself into an insect daemon lanyard most of the time, instead watching things from Martin’s not inconsiderable height. So long as he didn’t go banging the top of his head on anything, Celidae was more than safe.

    Peter hadn’t liked that.

    Martin's daemon has tried on the shape of dogs and lizards and snakes and horses, and even – once, when he was younger and Mum took him to the seaside, a fish.

    Martin's never seen his soul in the dressing of a spider before.
