"Elegant, Mysterious, and Beautiful"
Your cat prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Elegant, Mysterious, and Beautiful." Ansel and Turq support Filly and Kedric, who are upset about supervillains nesting in their town. But that's not the only unusual thing in Ava.
241 lines, Buy It Now = $121

The injured centaurs had been
tucked into their new tent with
assorted food and amusements,
at least the ones who would
go inside even cloth walls.

"Only by Moving Forward"
This inspired the free-verse poem "Only by Moving Forward." Ansel and Skippy talk with the rescued centaurs about coping skills.
333 lines, Buy It Now = $167

Ansel went out to his grandparents' farm
on Sunday to help with the centaurs
who had arrived by truck on Saturday.

SPOON had sent a support team, too,
but Ansel had his own ace up his sleeve.

"Plowing Through Frustration"
Your mall prompt inspired "Plowing Through Frustration." Charli wants to visit the mall in Bluehill, but things don't go according to plan.
418 lines, Buy It Now = $209

Charli wanted to go the mall.

It had been a month since
she and the other centaurs
had been rescued from
the Umsetzung Complex
and moved to Conrad's farm.

"Through Many a Listening Chamber"
This contributed to the free-verse poem "Through Many a Listening Chamber." Turq and Nebuly take a couple of the centaurs exploring on Conrad's farm.
312 lines, Buy It Now = $156

After the raid, Turq spent
plenty of time at Conrad's farm,
and Nebuly sometimes joined him.

They did whatever they could to help
the centaurs adjust to freedom.

"Whether You Deserve It or Not"
Ansel and Turq talk with a suspect from the raid who may not actually be one of the villains.
379 lines, Buy It Now = $190

Ansel frowned over the message.
"Turq, do you feel up to meeting
one of the captives?" he asked.
