Characters/Pairings: Cyth
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Author's Notes: He's mine, he's all mine, you can't have him.

Freedom was a concept that Cyth had learned never to discuss. It meant different things to different people, who were all willing to argue at length about it.

Most people who knew him thought he wouldn't know the meaning of the word 'free' if it bit him; married to his job, they'd say. Married to his duty.

But he did know what 'free' was. It was, most simply, the capability to do what you wanted to do and not be stopped.

Married to his job? Chained to his duty? Cyth knew himself as the most free man on the planet.

Summary: Years upon years of freedom, from everything, to do anything.
Author's Notes: I may write more in this world.

The dream promised freedom.

…from the anxiety that clung like fog to every street and word. A grocery run tugged at spider-threads of alliance and enmity. Chances to kill and gain, exposed―by you? for you? He half-remembers constables, laws, another world's naïve playthings.

Someone was always stronger until no one was. Not this idiot, scavenging the Master's shed. She shatters, begging for her life.

He shuts her up.

Years upon years of freedom, from everything, to do anything. Take―or receive splendid tributes. Command―or accept solicitous service, hear artful ingratiation. Bound in silky ennui, he aches for the bite of fear.
