For my own, Phaedra makes the decision which spurs her forth into the rest of A Symposium in Space. This is a little longer than six sentences, but they’re very short sentences.

“I’m going to Agathea’s symposium.” 

I didn’t turn around. If I looked into Pausania’s eyes, I might still yield. I could end up apologizing and falling into her arms. Again.

Not this time.

For my own, Phaedra wrestles with a painful decision in A Symposium in Space

I needed to step back and let her do so. 

I stared at the archaic wood greaves in the portal to our home. So hopelessly old-fashioned.

One of the things Pausania and I had in common was we both loved ancient, traditional things for all their connection with a patriarchal past. 

Why did those connections have to be so bitter?

For my own, Phaedra will continue on, even if it means away from Pausania in A Symposium in Space

I took a step away from Pausania toward the door. 

Part of me wanted to turn back. Part of me wanted to take her bleeding hand in mine and kiss it. Part of me wanted to apologize, to offer anything that might soothe her hurt. 

I was beginning to wonder if anything I did would ever soothe Pausania’s hurt. Perhaps the only one who could heal Pausania was Pausania.

For mine, I cut Phaedra off in mid-rant. Very rude of me, but I decided to stop at the six sentence snippet limit. (ducks in anticipation of imaginary thrown objects :)). She wasn’t finished with Pausania, oh no…fine. I’ll let her finish, even if it means going over six sentences. (wry grin)

“Men used to take boys as their beloveds, centuries ago on Earth. This whole notion of a lover guiding and dominating a beloved was theirs.”

“Not entirely.” Pausania bit on her trembling lip. A bead of red appeared upon it. “Life givers have redefined this relationship, making it—“

“—even more domineering if we’re an example of this.” I took a step away from Pausania toward the door.

For mine, Phaedra isn’t backing down in A Symposium in Space

I shook my head. “Stop acting like what you do only affects you.”

“How dare you…” Pausania trembled all over. She took a long, slow breath. “Why are you complaining? Have I ever been ungenerous?”

For my own, Phaedra is saying what’s on her mind and taking a stand against Pausania for the first time in A Symposium in Space

I glanced at Pausania’s hand. “Have you even noticed you’re bleeding?”

“What does that have to do with anything?” She looked down at her bloody hand with an impatient irritation. “They’re only cuts.”

“Cuts hurt.”

Too many people have a scapegoat for all their problems. For Pausania, it’s men, even though she’s never seen a man in her life. Welcome to the Intergalactic Democracy in A Symposium in Space

“Men saw women swelling with life, only to be eaten with envy at the sight?” Men were always the villains of herstory as far as Pausania was concerned. “Don’t make excuses for them. Nothing can ever pardon them for what they’ve made.”

“What about what we’ve done?” I glanced at Pausania’s hand.

For my own, Pausania will continue in her dismissive snark toward the orb she showed last Sunday in A Symposium in Space…

Pausania waved her free hand in languid dismissal. “You’re all about the latest trends. You never touch anything that questions or casts them in an unflattering light.”

“Ah, but would I be inviting Sokrat if that were true?” A sly tone laced with humor emitted from the mechanical device. 

I wondered if Agathea had given it her voice.

For my own, Pausania and Phaedra will continue to bicker, much to the orb’s amusement in A Symposium in Space. This goes just a sentence longer than six, forgive me…

“Next you’ll be calling life givers women.”

“Huh?” I opened and closed my mouth. “Why would I call women life givers?”

“You may call it a lack of galactic sensibility. I call it a charming display of innocence.” The orb throbbed in midair, quivering with hungry intensity.

For mine, Pausania has just made her entrance, irritating Phaedra. Just as Agathea’s orb is irritating her with its presence in A Symposium in Space…

I’d got her that furnishing, saved up my meager pennies from poetry readings and space runs to see that she had something special to adorn her apartment. True, she’d never shown more than a temporary admiration for its beauty, but her casual contempt was like a slap in the face. 

“Phaedra has no interest in your shallow attempts to feed on her emotions, Agathea.” Pausania waved a hand at the orb. 

“Agathea?” I swallowed at hearing her name.
