Mag 7 - Vin B&W

'Neither Wind Nor Bird' (01/01)

I wrote a comment fic last week in response to a meme, which was essentially the first section of this story. I fleshed it out a bit and added a second part, and now, have a complete story to present to you.

This takes place about ten days after ‘The Heart of a Friend’ and several weeks before strangevisitor7's story, ‘Hell Hath No Fury’.

Rating: PG13
Characters: Vin Tanner, Cecily Black Desjardins, Penny Black
Notes: Thanks to strangevisitor7 for the beta, a story in the Echoes the Sea/Aces Immortal series.
Summary: Cecily gives Vin a little something to think about.


Neither Wind Nor Bird

Neither wind nor bird
That was my heart you heard
Last night by the River
Making thunder through the land,
Shaking earth where you did stand
That was my heart you heard

Rancho Caballo Rojo, New Mexico Territory, Autumn 1867

“Are you sweet on Cecily?” a young voice asked from behind him.

Pizza Night

After several aborted attempts, I'm finally making pizza tonight. I really love my homemade pizza, but it's an all afternoon affair. From making the dough, to prepping all the toppings, shredding the cheese, seems like that's all I've done since 2pm! Making plain cheese for my father, a bacon, mushroom, and sauteed tomato for mum, and roasted garlic, goat cheese for me and Nin.

Thinking I'll avoid the internet tonight so I don't find out who wins at the Emmys till I get to actually see it. Happens every year since the east coast sees it before the west coast. And now with LJ and Twitter, almost impossible to avoid spoilers. Before, all I had to do was avoid email!

Need to go remind Nin to make margaritas....
