Note: This is another story in another time and place within Lordsverse. Probably not going to continue this one until I get through one of the others, but I've wanted to do Daffodil with these characters for a while, so here's this.

(Also I'm sorry if I've misinterpreted the rules of this challenge, I asked for clarification but it was only recently and I suppose everyone else has been as busy as I have. Don't think I did, but normal nervousness on my part. Anyway fic.)

Could I please have a new tag? "LoSaC" is fine if the full title's too long, just wanna differentiate it from the more general stuff in the universe not connected to these characters. Also cool if not.

Summary: Vaska doesn't have his own original story quite yet; he's one of my favorite characters to write, though, and I know how he fits into the universe, at least. He's a vaguely druidic, trickster type, a priest of an old half-asleep crone goddess who is quite clever but not quite as clever as he thinks he is. Tek, there, is a smilodon. He should probably be a lot bigger in comparison to Vaska.
