Neil's Journal

I cannot believe I’m writing this: Glitzy and I are going to be parents. Of twins.

Glitzy got roughed up at a party and while I was treating her injuries, I also did a pregnancy test because we already had our suspicions. It turned out we were right. I don’t think either of us has fully realized what has happened, I still feel a bit numb and Glitzy seems the same. She has even more reason to be, though, because after a spirit trip we took (long story, more on that later) she came back with pointed ears, very much an elf. She really is one, a gene test confirms it. I have no idea what happened there, but I do know that it will take some time for her to come to terms with that development.

Our children will be a boy and a girl and the girl will be an elf, too. We chose the name Kiara for her. I wanted to name the boy after Growler, there was just the small problem that I had no idea what his real name was. So I went and asked him and I got a very suspicious look and a runaround answer. When I told him that I really couldn’t name my son Growler, I had the pleasure of the rare sight of an absolutely astounded Growler. He caved and told me that his name is Angus. So Angus and Kiara it is.

There is some risk involved with the pregancy, because they are twins, because it will take longer than usual and because they are elf and human. I think it’s a risk I can manage, although I predict a lot of lost sleep for me about this. I worry, it’s what I do.
But I cannot wait for the two. I never really wanted children, but now the thought alone is enough to make me smile. I can already see them in Glitzy’s aura, tiny, so small I could hold them both on one finger. Angus and Kiara.


I’m no elf, that not true! And I ain’t got fuckin’ pointy ears! Yeah, they’re a bit pointy now but not like those elven flaps but I haven’t changed at all – but those small rosy tips. Tippy ears don’t make you an elf! Guess it’s a fuckin’ magic prank by fate itself, that hussy, I caught that on that spirit trip. It’s just a fuckin’ magic freak event I say. – Glitzy

_Sorry, love, your genetics say otherwise. But really, stop freaking out about this, it doesn’t define you. Note my lack of prediction about you moving to Tir Tairngire or bullshit like that. You’re still you. – Neil _
