Found this in my drafts. Figure there’s basically no way for me to get it from where it is to, you know, actual plot. So I thought I’d post it as is.
(If anyone likes the idea and wants to run with it, go right ahead. I will love you forever.)
Rosemary and Mary just wanted to get out of the obligations of their lives (and maybe learn a couple new and interesting words). They never expected to fall into the company of Polly “Ozzer” Perks or Mal the Vampire, two of the eight most (in)famous members of the Borogovian army in recent years, just as another war was being started!
Polly and Mal, meanwhile, have mostly just tired of civilian life and want to catch themselves one damn big fish named Peace. But between General Froc and general stupidity, Peace isn’t going to come easily.
Polly Perks was a name that every person in Borogovia had either heard or would be hearing very shortly. It wasn’t that she was the most important member of the infamous Monstrous Regiment - that honor went to Alice Goom. But the fact was, she was one of the five women who had gone into the army, who had taken Kneck Keep, who had brought the Duchess to the highest ranking members in the army, who had brought the war to a stop sixteen-handedly, who had dared to be unashamedly female, human and military.
