A common delicious dessert across Ceannis is the food our world calls gulab jamar. “Roseberry dumpling” is my attempt to come up with a plausible English-language term that sounds as cutsey and sweet as “cinnamon roll.”
Holly: The tentacle creature was closing in fast! Luckily, I had prepared the perfect potion earlier that day . . .
Ivy: Eeeee, you like Pretty Combat Mountaineer Geirskögul too?? She is literally my favorite EVER!!
Holly: So the carriage curtain pulls back, and it’s pitch dark inside, except for these two glowing red eyes . . . Can’t lie, I’m scared, but I don’t let it show!
Ivy: I have written sooooo much Geirskögul/Holger fanfiction.
Holly: So I turn around, and you’re never gonna believe who’s right behind me — Astrid Rødlund!
Ivy: Is Holger not just the most perfect sweet roseberry dumpling too good for this world??
Holly: I don’t want to brag, but she called my magic ‘excellent’.
Ivy: Aaaaahhh, we’re here!! Time to see the fishies!!
