Continued from Shannon Meets Heather, Part 5: Consummation.
Years later Shannon's and Heather's marriage was a shambles. The following stories are already posted on this blog. They were originally part of the stories that became the novel, but Heather was an unfortunate casuality of brutal editing. These stries are mostly in the context of the Queen's departure for Affynshire after learning of her uncle's grave illness. Once you have refreshed your memory, the story will continue. The eventual plan is to write a sequel where the entire Shannon and Heather story takes place after the time frame of the novel.*
