“Are we ready?” Casey’s tail swishes back and forth in the foyer: mild annoyance swinging it like a metronome. She taps her foot impatiently as Kol and Gabe bustle around.

“Just a sec.” Gabe dashes by the mirror and pauses to touch up his lips.

“Gabe, what happened to your suit?” Casey asks

He caps his lipstick and stows it in a pocket of space. “Ugh, fuck that suit. Last time I wore it, I felt like I couldn’t breathe the whole night.”

“You couldn’t breathe, so you opted for a corset instead?”

“Ye- uh...” He bites his lip, leaving the faintest smudge of pink on his incisors. “Look, that suit didn’t fit me!”

“You could have just had it adjusted, you know?” Casey sighs. "You had weeks to get it done."

“Didn’t fit me on, like, a spiritual level!” He wags a finger. “I’m done with them! I need a fresh look!”

“I don’t know, I could grow to like them.” Kol shrugs against his suit jacket, and steps up next to Casey.
“Shouldn’t we have been there already?”

Casey sighs, “We should have been there ten minutes ago. You guys took forever getting ready.”

“Hey, if we’re doing this, my look has to be perfect.” Gabe takes his position between them and opens a gate.

Together they step through into the sunlight. Breezy sea air catches their clothes as they stride across brilliant, white marble. The campus of the college of senders stretches out around them in crisp angles and perfect lines. Before them, a wide causeway of steps climbs the slope: leading to the statue of Madam Moot herself. At the base of the monument a small crowd has gathered, murmuring excitedly to one another in anticipation.

Climbing the staircase, they make their way to the edge of the crowd. Waving hello’s to familiar faces, they find Cecil Ochre standing with a clipboard. Next to him is a table with a small collection of lanterns, each burning with a different colored flame.

Cecil checks their names off of his clipboard, “I was wondering when we were going to see you! Glad you made it in time.”I hope you’re all ready.”

“I think so. Raithe tried to explain it all to us but we’re not quite sure what all to do.” Casey admits. “We’re not exactly adept at elemental magic.”

“Neither am I, I’m afraid.” Cecil’s pencil taps thoughtfully on the clipboard. “Most of it seem’s pretty simple: flame bearers will take their positions and one after another we add our fires to the ritual.”
He holds up a lantern of his own and points, “There’s a lever on the side that’ll open the bottom, which will drop the fire into a trail of oil.”

“Seems simple enough.” Gabe nods along.

“And as you do so, you’re supposed to keep some kind of truth held in your mind: something true to yourself, I suppose.” Mr. Ochre shrugs. “I’m not entirely sure what is meant by that part, to be honest. But I shall do my best.”

“After the truefire is lit, Miki and Raithe will say their vows and ask the guests to give their blessings to the couple. That’s about it for the ceremony itself.”

"Something true..." Casey eyes her lantern as she thinks aloud.

"Raithe says it doesn't have to be very complex, just something true." Mr. Ochre shrugs again.

Gabe picks up a lantern for himself, burning with a bright ruby flame. "We've got time to think about it at least."

“Where’s Flashing Feathers?” Kol cranes his neck, eyeing the crowd. “Would be nice to get a blessing from a god, or former god.”

“Oh he’s already at work on that.” Cecil gives a beaky smile and looks out to sea, “There’s a line of storms headed this way: he’s giving us a window to hold the ceremony, but he’ll join us for the reception.”

“Are we the last ones? I hope everyone can make it.” Casey looks around at the various flame bearers mixed in the crowd.

“Still waiting on-“ Cecil checks his clipboard but is interrupted by the swish of red silk. A curtain appears in midair and is pulled aside by the blazing figure of Cauldera. At her side is-

“Vivian La Fey...” Cecil breathes and drops his pencil.

Cecil scrambles to recover and stands ramrod straight as he checks the guest list. “Uh-um- C- Cauldera, I believe?” His eyes flicker between the pair frantically.

“-Plus one.” Cauldera beams, taking a lantern. The flame within burns same hue as her plumage, now refreshed and glowing in the sun. “Are we late?”

“N-not excessively so!” Mr Ochre stammers. “O-one might say fashionably late?” He smiles back nervously.

“Heya Viv!” Gabe steps in to rescue the bowerbird. “Love the dress! Have you met Cecil Ochre? Big fan, Isn’t that right?” The mouse wraps an arm around him amicably and winks.

The hapless bird nods mutely and Vivian cocks hear head, “Ochre? Mr. Ochre, right? You always buy box 17? No, I don’t believe we’ve met. Thank you for the roses, though. Pleasure to meet you.” She smiles warmly, reducing the poor bird to a stammering mess.

“And I don’t think you’ve met my partner Casey yet, either.” Gabe continues, giving Casey a nudge and a wink.

“A pleasure.” Casey beams at the fey. Vivian offers her hand and Casey pecks a kiss on the back of it.

“I heard through the grapevine you recently uncovered some writings by the old teacher herself. Is this true?” Vivian asks in a kind of meandering curiosity.

“Tuvara-Malli? You mean the book we found? How’d you know about that?” Casey shoots a glance at Gabe, who shrugs helplessly.

“I hear all kinds of things.” The kitsune replies cryptically. “If its true, I would love to see it. Her verse is...” She sighs deeply, ending with a purr of adoration.

“I know, right?” A dreamy eyed look of mutual appreciation comes over Casey. “I never thought I’d see her work with my own eyes. Would you be interested in seeing it some time? We’re honestly hoping someone can help translate it.”

“I’d certainly love to try! Its a date, then.” The kitsune nods conclusively and grins. “We’ll get together soon.”

“I think I’ll skip that date,” Cauldera chuckles, “old books and me don’t agree with one another. Though, I do like when you read to me.”

Vivian and Caulera bid them adieu to go mingle with the guests, the crowd parting in amazement around the starlet and the phoenix. Casey waves them goodbye and blinks absentmindedly. “Did... did I just make a date to read fey poetry with Vivian?”

“Sure sounded like it.” Kol puts an arm around her shoulder.

“Okay.” Casey nods while staring off at nothing in particular. “Wanted to make sure I didn’t just dream that.”

“Excuse me, are you Miki’s parents?” Casey asks politely.

“Got it in one!” The husband passes his lantern to his other hand and offers his palm to shake. “Name’s Claude. Pleasure to meet you!” He smiles from behind an uneven hedgerow of a mustache.

“And I’m Della. Nice to finally meet some of Miki’s friends.” Miki’s mom exchanges a couple of fluffy hugs with the guides.

“Nice to meet you both!” Casey beams, “I’m Casey. That’s Kol and this is Gabe. We’re spirit guides. Miki’s been a big help, and always a good friend.”

Della gasps and nearly drops her lantern. “The spirit guides! Claude its them! Miki talks about you all the time! Its so wonderful to finally meet you!” She bustles in place frantically. “Claude its so exciting!”

“So these are the mice who helped my girl find her love!” Claude laughs and claps Gabe on the back with a callused hand. “I was wondering whether she would ever find someone. She put so much of herself into that bakery, we were wondering if she’d ever find someone. Little did we realize she was conspiring to marry her oven!”

“Claude!” Della baps him in the shoulder and the dad belly laughs. “Seriously, thank you. Miki’s spent so much of her life in a kitchen, its good to see all of the people she’s met.”

“Miki’s pretty incredible that way. Everyone she meets she seems to help in some way.” Kol grins as he thinks back, “Even we were struggling until we helped her and Raithe meet. She’s put us in touch with a lot of people who we were able to help and even gone with us on a case or two.”

“My baby’s having so many adventures!” Tears glisten behind Della’s glasses.

“Nah, ‘s not like we took her to a lich’s tomb or something.” Gabe waves dismissively.

“Well...” Casey reminds him, “she did come with us onto Caleb’s boat, which was haunted at the time.”

“Yeah, but Adrian wasn’t hurting anybody! he was a really sweet guy for a lich!” Kol gives Miki’s parents a nervous sorry we took your daughter into danger grin. “He just needed our help!”

“We didn’t exactly know that though. Buuuut it was kind of an emergency, since I’d just fallen off that cliff.” Casey concedes.

Miki’s parents stare back with a glassy-eyed smile of polite horror. “Oh, that’s... interesting!” Della remarks primly.

“We’ll have to tell you the whole sto-“ Kol stops and his eyes dart sideways, “-most of the story later. Miki was a huge help though: figured out where Adrian had hidden Caleb’s skin and helped him move on to the other side.”

“No, I mean- Caleb’s a selkie! They take their skin off to change forms! Its part of a marriage ritual for selkies!” Kol backpedals desperately. His darting eyes catch sight of a familiar silhouette among the crowd. “ Oh wait- look there he is! Hey, Caleb!”

The sailor turns at the sound of his name and stares at the frantically waving mouse. He waves back hesitantly, happy to see Kol but struggling to read the situation.

“See? Heheheheh-heh.” Kol takes a deep breath as his pulse drums in his ears. “It was all quite an adventure.” Casey pats him gently on the back and squeezes his shoulder reassuringly.

“That’s uh- fascinating.” Claude remarks after his brain has had a bit of a reboot. He glances back up at the selkie, who’s scars rise up out of his old wedding kimono and wrap up around his head. “So, that was you guys with the lichfire a couple of months back? I tell ya, gave us all a scare. We thought the old lords were back or something.” He chuckles nervously before asking, “They’re not, right?”

“No, no.” Kol reassures Miki’s parents, “nothing like that. Mostly just the remnants of a lost era.” His gaze flickers sideways for a moment, unable to avoid glancing at the looming shape of the bargast. He tactfully decides not to mention the horde of undead threatening to awaken and march on the town.

“We did catch one of them and trap him in a crystal!” Gabe interjects, beaming at them, “This old lich tried taking over Kol’s body and Kol was able to force him out and- oh yeah that was kind of my fault...” His grin twists itself up in embarrassment. “What ever happened to that guy anyway?”

Casey reminds him, “Three Horns still has him. They’re hoping he’ll give them some clue about how to run the quicksilver machine. No luck so far.”

“Ahh. Well, I’m glad we were able to help kobolds with their water supply, at least. I wouldn’t mind dropping by to visit them again some time soon.” Gabe sighs wistfully, remembering their first night among the kobolds.

Miki’s parents listen, fascinated but unable to follow along. Before they can inquire more a sudden light lances up over the crowd as the truefire ceremony begins.

Above them, a bonfire of pristine white pine logs blazes merrily, set on a weathered stone platform traditionally used to for signal fires. The roaring conflagration leaps hungrily into the air, fed by the steady wind coming off the coast.

“Oh shoot, we need some kind of truth to add to this thing, right?” Gabe mutters, looking at the tiny flame in his lantern. “I should have been thinking of what to think of, uhhhh. So what do we need, like... something objectively true? Because I know a lot of math, would that work?”

Claude shrugs, “I’m quite not sure myself. Miki tried explaining it to us and I think its supposed to be some kind of personal truth? I don’t know if math counts.”

“I think she said that’s one of the reasons why the ceremony takes so many people.” Della explains, “It takes a lot of little truths and kind of... distills them together. It’s all very exciting!”

“Ugh, introspection.” Gabe sags and mutters, “my one weakness.”

Honestly, one that applies to all three of you would be that you're happy in your relationship with each other.
Gabe, are you proud of yourself of for how far you've come as a sender? Long ways away from snipping people's tails.
Kol, Death means nothing if you didn't make your life worth it. Wouldn't you say that you've lived your best life so far? And yet more to come.
Casey, your pursuit of knowledge and learning has brought you before old gods and forgotten tribes. You know the hunt is not over yet.

And you all will do so together.

The line shuffles forward as one by one, the lanterns are added to the ceremony. Murmured excitement runs through the crowd as the roaring bonfire flashes a spectrum of colors. The guides near the top of the mountain, each quietly contemplating their own truths to add to the sacred fire.

Ahead of them, Miki’s parents step up to the peak, closing their eyes and adding their flames to a line of oil. The brilliant violet fire races into the heart of the blaze and washes upwards with a roar.

“I- I hope we did it right.” Claude says, stepping back from the heat. “Uh, your turn I believe.”

“I guess I’ll go first.” Kol steps up and releases the lever on his lantern. As the fire roars with a sapphire hue, he thinks to himself.

”I’m living an amazing, full life; I’ll give it as much meaning as I can before I must accept its end.“

Casey takes his place and opens her lantern. A rich sea green flame flickers over the bonfire as she thinks.

”Ive pursued knowledge and history and seen old gods, lost tribes and spells spoken of in myth.
There’s so much more to see and learn, and I'm proud of all I've discovered.”

“Uh, okay...” Gabe steps into place and thinks for one last moment before opening the latch and letting a blood red flame burst forth.

”Everyone thought I couldn’t be a sender because I was just a horny goofball, but you know what? I did it! I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished!”

”Also spite me, Delilah, looking good! I wonder if she wants to hook up after the reception? I hope she likes my look: I’m feelin’ really pretty today. Pretty horny, I mean. Heheh got’em. Oh wait, is all this going in the fire? Shit-fuck, uh disregard all that. Can I start over? I- I’m just gonna stand over here.”

Gabe sidles over and joins the crowd who’s already added their flames. Blushing with a tinge of socian anxiety, he sets his empty lantern down with the rest of them and stands near his partners.

As the last of the lanterns is added the crowd murmurs expectantly. Excitement and concern flicker from person to person.

”Did we do it right?”

”Where’s Miki?”

“And Raithe? Wouldn’t he know if its working?”

“What do we do now?”


The guests mill about anxiously, watching the fire for signs of the completed spell.

As they do, a whoop calls out from above. Soaring in on blazing wings, Raithe lazily circles the monument, cradling his bride in his arms as he descends.

“Hey everybody!” Miki waves at the crowd and calls, “Sorry about the wait! I guess we could have timed this better!”

Hey Miki, you are slightly on fire, is that normal?

We should put out the flames on her clothes before they burn away completely and leave her naked. I don’t think Miki would enjoy being naked in front of everyone on her wedding day!
