Beltane was fast approaching. Beltane heralded the season of war. But of late Will's skin had begun to crawl. Magic he was familiar with, magic he had not felt for many years, magic strong and dark haunted him. It was not the strange magic of the Trooping fae that Fin possessed. No, this was familiar.

An old foe.

It wasn't simply a matter of the Unseelie whom Will and his brothers would battle and defeat, as was tradition. This was something he'd defeated with great cost long ago.

The Milesian.

He was keen and watchful as he knew they prowled the Earth. Somehow they had come back from banishment. And the strength of them had grown. Will knew the battle this year would be so much more weighty. There would be no need for a mortal on the field against the Milesian. They came from the Land of the Dead and would take as many lives as they could, fae and mortal alike. Today Will had heard tell of several people dead in the tube. Of course the authorities had their theories and suspicions, but Will knew. He just knew and so tonight with the initial investigation wrapped up he gathered his strength and descended into the tube stop. Magic crackled in the air. Dark magic. Dark as could be.

He reached for the neck of his guitar on his back and to those who could see such things his hand closed around the hilt of a broadsword. A few people waited for the train and Willy wasn't about to let them meet the same fate as the earlier travelers. Those hadn't been killed so much as claimed.

The Daoine Sidhe prince wasnt about to let his city fall to the enemy. Not even if he had to defend it all by himself.

Remembering how her last conversation with Fin had gone down in flames, Sunny snorted. Oh yeah, that was another thing to add to the list.

Her face was redder than she wanted it to be, but she took a deep breath and wiped her eyes and cheeks with her fingers.

"Call me little one again and I will jack up your 'fro beyond repair," Sunny snapped. She breathed, sniffled (which only made her mad), and... "But I don't think I'd say no to a drink."

She didn't know what made her say yes, other than, perhaps, a perverse need to try to understand something. Or maybe she really just didn't want to go home and be alone yet. Whatever.

"That doesn't mean much of anything." Sunny was not going to rise to that bait, though. At least not yet. She followed Willy out into the bar. She asked for cider as she sat down; it was like beer's less disgusting cousin.

She wondered if he had any idea how to speak to a human without being patronizing. Sunny pushed that feeling away and went after the important thing. "Now that we've got time for you to give me an actual answer, what was that thing?"

"Why was there a war in the first place?" Sunny asked, for the moment ignoring her own drink. Not that she couldn't make a few guesses, but given fairies literally had ritual wars for reasons she didn't really understand, she had to ask. Even without that, it seemed like it might be important.

"Okay. So they want revenge for being shoved onto the wrong side of the veil. Which warped them. And now instead of going after who did this to them, they've given up on being discriminating." Sunny took a drink. "Any idea how they've been getting out?"

Having had discussions with her brothers about which one of them got to break bad news to their parents, Sunny almost felt bad for him. She even winced a little, just because she couldn't imagine the queen was remotely pleasant to talk to.

"Someone might be holding the door open for them, so to speak," she mused. Masquerades, the strongest ones at least, could only come through when summoned.

"And what would that mean exactly?" Sunny barely understood the ritual wars of Seelie and Unseelie. Given the always political shitstorm and sometimes active warzone that parts of Nigeria were, the idea of regularly scheduled wars was nothing short of madness.

So she didn't know what the consequences of an Unseelie victory were, not exactly.

Sunny frowned faintly, thinking. "So what is their role?" The word that came up again and again when anybody asked why fairies did anything was 'balance' but what balance was being maintained she didn't know.

"My part of the world doesn't do that," Sunny couldn't help observing. "Winter isn't really a concept there."

Sunny resolved that she was going to treat that as a rhetorical question, or else she'd have to start laughing and never stop. "Well, yes, but if you mean in any cyclical and predictable way that doesn't have to do with shit post-colonial governments, I guess there is a dry season and a rainy season."

"People in power, definitely. Most of Africa only got its independence from European powers sixty years ago," Sunny said with a shrug. "And by that I mean white people threw together countries based on their boundaries and not anything to do with us and then they get confused by all the upheaval and civil wars when the basic concepts of shared identity that form modern nation-states just weren't there."

She shook her head. "Anyway. How do Fin and Pippa's kind factor into all of this?"

Sunny took a moment to turn that over in her mind. "So Pippa is inadvertently gathering forces for a fight she doesn't understand and has no stake in besides."
