Butterfly Effect
by Dialecticdreamer/Sarah Williams
part 1 of 1 (complete)
word count (story only): 1559

:: This story follows “Detours and Obstacles,” (part one, part two, and part three) and definitely throws a spanner into the works. ::

:: Pay Special Attention: I do NOT write unhappy endings, I assure everyone! ::

“All right,” Joshua declared as he turned on the signal and pulled to the side of a narrow, two-lane highway that seemed to bounce up and down, like a rippling ribbon frozen by a high-speed camera. “All right, it's time for me to take a nap. Cash, if you'd like help balancing on the way to the front passenger seat, G, you're driving.”

“I'm what?” G croaked.

“Student driver,” his dad informed him, pointing to add emphasis. Then he pointed to Cash, who already had the lift in motion. “Licensed driver, whose only job is to get control of the vehicle if you panic. So, don't panic.”

Joshua set the parking brake and shut off the engine, and hugged his son as they crossed paths on the side of the road. When he returned, he secured the wheels with a moving strap. As he slipped behind it to the vinyl accordion door next to the tiny kitchen area, he told Kais, “I'll wake up in an hour. Don't worry, G's a better driver than he thinks he is.”

Overview of Queen of Frost Trilogy

Mar. 12th, 2014 11:18 pm

[personal profile] aftanith
Frost arranges for the Circle to share Izzy, Simon, and Nadia, during which Sparrow gets to witness for the first time the life she's escaping thanks to Frost's interest in her. To really let it sink in, Frost lets Octavian proposition Sparrow after he's through with the other victors; when Sparrow turns him down, Frost demands that she "convince" him that she deserves to keep the special treatment he's been giving her. (Frost has no intentions of ever letting her go; Sparrow, however, realizes she can't risk it.)
At the beginning of the 126th Culling, Sparrow is introduced to the older victors for the first time. During the Culling, they are all expected to "reconnect with" the Circle and the other victors, regardless of their circumstances (marriage, kids, whatever). Simon, as usual, takes it upon himself to "protect" Sparrow and Nadia from everyone's advances, though Sparrow is the subject of considerable attention regardless. (And Frost makes it clear to her that she is welcome to sleep with any victors she pleases.)
When the 126th Culling ends, the Circle is surprised to find that their chosen victor, one of the female candidates, has lost to a dangerous, ruthless male candidate. Afterward, the Circle must decide what to do with this individual--break him down mentally until he's safe to use or arrange for his disposal. Sparrow advocates letting him go, if he's really that dangerous, but Frost reminds her that Nadia and Simon won't be able to get out until there are two replacements. If #126 is thrown out, they'll have to wait until after #128 is chosen.
Ultimately, they give #126 to Octavian for "training", and he seems to be broken by the time he's reintroduced to the Circle. But he's not. He's seduced Loretta, and he uses her to ambush Frost, Octavian, and Sparrow, whom he intends to murder. Loretta saves them at the last minute, killing #126 and cementing Loretta & Sparrow's friendship.

Sparrow (Queen of Frost #1)
Court of Glass (Queen of Frost #2)
Queen of Frost (Queen of Frost #3)


Major themes/elements:
• group relationship dynamics
• decadence & cruelty of nobility
• voyeurism & objectification

Re: group dynamics, the core group contains:
• Frost & Sparrow (alpha couple)
• Nadia & Simon (beta couple)
• Izzy, Suri, & Loretta (support)


In Sparrow, Severin becomes Sparrow's ally in her mission to escape from Parabellum, but she sends Suri with him in her place.

In Court of Glass, #126 takes Sparrow, Frost, and Octavian prisoner and tries to convince Sparrow to escape with him after he kills the men. She refuses, and #126 is killed.

In Queen of Frost, #127 turns out to be a mole. She captures Sparrow and takes her to the resistance, where she reunites with Severin and Suri before ultimately escaping.

At the end of the first two, Sparrow decides not to leave Frost. At the end of the last, she decides to return to Frost.

Parabellum: The Fourth Installment

[personal profile] aftanith
I've had some ideas for potentially expanding the Parabellum series beyond the third installment. It would deal primarily with the fall-out of Simon's death, especially in terms of Nadia and Sparrow's emotional arcs. It introduces two new characters: Kieran Bell and Galen Freed.

Kieran is essentially conceptualized as an anti-Simon. He's the new victor of the year and quite physically similar to their late friend/lover... but in terms of personality, he's more in line with Izzy. He actually seems to enjoy being a victor; he's receptive to Octavian's advances and actively tries to pursue Sparrow, Frost, and Nadia.

On the other hand, there's Galen. He has a lot in common with Loretta; like her, he's the son of a Circle member, and as a recent inductee, his initial role is barely above that of a victor. Also like Loretta, he decides to aim for the very top, quickly setting his sights on Frost and Sparrow.

Though Sparrow initially dismisses Galen in favor of Kieran, her interest in the latter swiftly evaporates... And thanks to some urging from Loretta (and perhaps Damianus), the story should move steadily in the direction of Frost/Sparrow/Galen.
