What I Have Written
"Disconnected" -- In today's freebie, Officer RAT has another misadventure.
"Tools and Toys"
From this I got the free-verse poem "Tools and Toys." Aquariana discovers that her dolphin friends make toys and tools out of air bubbles and have a more sophisticated grasp of technology than humans realized.
"Heart upon a Chain"
This mixed with nineforthenebulasheart to inspire the indriso "Heart upon a Chain." Some time after the quest, Paul gives the Heart to someone else.

"To Choose a Direction"
This inspired the free-verse poem "To Choose a Direction." Merle contemplates the dilemma of academic specialization and finds a creative solution.
Thinking about connections led me to a pair of poems about Glyn and Ruggiero, tying into some stuff that dialecticdreamer is working on, written in unrhymed tercets.
"The Strength to Persevere" explores how Glyn views Ruggiero as a protector and a source of motivation, and she doesn't know if he quite gets the importance of that.
"The Treasure of Happiness" reveals how Ruggiero sees Glyn and precious and resourceful, even though he knows she doesn't see herself that way.
They're still working through some communication challenges, but they're so good for each other, these two.
"Often Buried Deep"
From this came the free-verse poem "Often Buried Deep." It follows Astin on a loop around the trade circuit, and then back to the warehouse at Trunnion, connecting the dots.
