Another dip into the Gem AU.
Sven, a high-ranking Embassy minister, is an Imperial Topaz. He’s getting his flirt on with Delphinium — a Bloodstone — oblivious to the fact that she is way deadlier than the ballgown suggests.
For Sven’s ten-year-old daughters, I cast them as tiny Gem types. Quiet, floaty Iona is a Sapphire, with a flaw in her gem that leads to undersized leg-projections. Aggressive, punchy Ragnild is a Ruby. This kid would definitely run off to Neptune at the drop of a distraction.
