Wrote some Blackmadhi (/beginnings of, anyway) because I’ve fallen into this ship more than I thought I would and I cannot get up. Has some implied past Blackbright/Phantomquill. Deals with some PTSD nightmares on Simon’s part. Slight spoilers for AA6. Approx. 2350 words.
Simon couldn’t help but wonder how exactly he got in this position.
How he was in a hotel room with one Prosecutor Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, who had fallen asleep in the bed next to his own at least two hours ago with absolutely no issues. The monk’s long hair was splayed across his pillows as gracefully as the man himself slept. It was kind of irritating, Simon couldn’t help but think. It would have been somewhat nice to see Nahyuta’s sleeping state to be the exact opposite of his conscious persona: perhaps some drooling, hair in knots and tangled everywhere…it would have been excellent material for Simon’s phone. But no, Prosecutor Sahdmadhi was as…ethereal in his sleep as he was at any other time.
And perhaps, most frustrating, was the fact that Nahyuta fell asleep with no problems whatsoever.
