Fiery Fantasy - the Lucky 7 Strikes Again

It's an honour and a privilege to be tagged once more for the Lucky Seven Meme - this time by the lovely Angela over at Ang Writes.  This isn't my first whirl around the Lucky Seven (you can see my last attempt here) but as it happens, I'm on a new WIP so am very excited to have another shot at sharing.



How does it work? 
  1. Go to page 7 or 77 of your current MS/WIP 
  2. Go to line 7
  3. Copy down the next 7 lines, sentences or paragraphs and post them as they are written.
  4. Tag 7 authors and let them know. 
So without further ado, here are seven lines from my current work in progress nominally titled Talking About the Weather - 7 paragraphs from page 7.

No powers to command the wind.  No powers to call down the rain to swell the river.  Not that they had helped Grandmama.  Not when faced with a mage of Torringe's strength.
"Septima."  He gripped her wrists, holding her still.  She had not realised he had come so close, close enough for her to feel the odd, scorching heat of his skin, to smell his smoky scent.  She stared up at him, trembling.   "My release was conditional.   Quod munus dabis mihi?  It means 'what gift will you give to me?'  Unless the gift is made I am not truly free.  What would you ask of me?"
Think.  "What are you... a demon?" 
"I am of the daoine sìdhe."
"The what?"
"I am Fae."
"Fae?"



So who to tag next?  I'd like to nominate fairytale authors (#ouatwriting and beyond): 


Mike Manz - @MisterManz
Sophie Moss - @SMossWrites
Diane J Reed - @TWIXTbook


And fab #storycraft aficionados :

fireflyfly - @fireflyfly 
K.Andrew Turner -  @KAndrewTurner
Moonduster - @moonduster
Andrea Hunter - @andreahunter313

Timing really is everything. I wrote up my lucky 7/kreativ blogger post yesterday and scheduled it for this evening. You were one of the folks I tagged and here you are tagging me instead.

Tag, we're it!

I'll add my admiration to the pile for your snippet there. Looking forward to reading the whole thing.
