The Solstice was upon them. When the sun went down the magic began to swell, the veil between this world and the Other Side thin as vapor. Mortals could sense it, even, though they may not have a name for it. They gathered together, not realizing the animal instinct of safety in numbers.

But all around the city, from the dark parts, fae began to come together as well. Unseelie filled the city- boggarts and Red Caps and things unseen for many a year with bright eyes and sharp teeth. But they were tricksy, dangerous and malicious but no worse than they ever were. The real threat, the ever present danger this year, were the Milesian that crawled out of the sewers and tube tunnels to prowl they city. They were hunting tonight. They had eyes black and soulless, eyes too wide for their white, gaunt faces. Larger than their eyes were their mouth. The smile of needle fangs glinted in the street lights. Long arms ending with spidery, spindly fingers reached and clawed at passers by from the shadows.

There was a war in the city tonight and the nature of the foe, the Milesian, meant no bound mortal needed to be near any battle. Death would come to one or the other if a killing blow came down.

But there was hope. Seelie fae prowled the city as well, fighting for Light and Air. Even the Queen had seen fit to step through with her sword and shield. Such was the threat to the Fae way of life that the Milesian presented.

The longest day of the year dawned but the sunlight did nothing to frighten off the dark forces. The longest day of the year simply meant the things that went bump in the night were attacking in the light.




(Tag in, tag around! Open all week so check back. Have fun with your adventures. If you don't want any Milesian, there are plenty of Unseelie, too. Day or night, whichever works for you.)

"It costs me almost nothing and it'll keep all of that out of your eyes," Sunny said with a shrug. "I think it's worth the effort."

He could interpret it as kindness if he wanted to, but when he offered his hand, Sunny shook her head firmly. "I'm not touching you unless and until circumstances deem it necessary."

Yes. But what she said was, "Not physically."

Sunny's eyes flashed. "I would never."

Had she wanted him dead tonight, she wouldn't be here with him at all. Because the truth of the matter was that Willy knew these enemies and she did not, even if she was powerful for a human. They were both more likely to be successful in taking down Milesian if they stayed together. And...

"We have a common enemy tonight. True, I don't care for you. Fin apparently thinks I don't care about him for some fool reason, but damned if I would hurt him by doing anything that cowardly."

Even useless as her brothers were against magic, Sunny couldn't imagine them sacrificing her. She was their sister, and the baby. Even Chukwu wouldn't be able to live with himself if he abandoned her.

It was a lesson, she supposed, in how Willy could think the way he treated people was appropriate.

"This is bigger than both of us. I'm fighting with you."

Sunny sighed, then squared her shoulders and gripped her knife tight. "I knew when I stepped outside that I was in for a long night."

She turned almost instinctively toward the east. Her body, her magic, knew deep inside which direction the sun would eventually come from.

Sunny had opened her mouth to reply, but she stopped when she instead heard the sound coming toward them out of the dark, like a swarm of insects. Either they had a Mmuo Aku or...

"They're coming."

Sunny's magic shot out--lightning flying from her knife into the ranks of monsters--before the creatures could surround them completely. She'd been surrounded one too many times to make the mistake of letting them be certain even for a moment of their advantage of numbers and position.
