7 Lines Meme

I've been tagged by selenic76 and tarlanx! The idea is to share seven lines from the seventh pageof a WIP of your choice. And then tag seven other writers to do the same :)

Most of my WIPs don't have 7 pages (yet), so I just chose a passage I liked. I love soulmate AU's and wanted to try my hand at one. I'm basing my "soulmate" idea off Sharon Shinn's Samaria series, where at birth everyone has a crystal implanted in their arm (called a Kiss), which lights up when a person meets their soulmate.

I want to post another snippet because I was tagged twice :P SO. I was working on a hooker!Rodney fic, because it's usually John, unless Rodney is young in the fic. It's very loosely based on the Kushiel Legacy series, where the dominant religion of the world considers prostitution a sacred service. Rodney was chosen to serve when he was young and pretty (but still legal). As he grew, however, he became more of an aquired taste (people are dumb), so his House decided to make him their financial officer. However, if a 'client' requests Rodney, he's still required to serve.

I decided to just post almost all that I have (which is quite long). It was written a long time ago, so I'll probably end up fussing with it if/when I pick it back up.

I tag aadarshinah, squidgiepdx, and anybody else who hasn't been tagged yet.

ETA: I've also been tagged by danceswithgary, so here is one more snippet :) As always, it's subject to editing.
