By the Light of Day is a story written by Ana Miruko. It originally ran in Issue 79 at http://www.shousetsubangbang.com/mirror/by-the-light-of-day/.

Summary[edit]

The Hiran capital of Ars Tagig has been sieged, its walls breached and people brought low, but for the assassin Arden, there is a more pressing concern: that she has been chosen to be the goddess Rovena's consort for the planting festival. Typically a revered position to ensure the prosperity of Hira in the next year, Arden can think of no worse fate.

Author’s Notes[edit]

Arden’s flower crown is made of protea, amaryllis, and camellia, tied with belladonna leaves. In flower symbolism, these can stand for change/transformation, pride and radiant beauty, and desire respectively. And then of course, belladonna leaves as poison/a warning.
