Crimson Qi (FUNNY COMPLETED)
An unlucky noblewoman precipitates a civil war and falls for a half-demonic beggar with a self-destructive healing talent.
Summary: Tien Lyn was born lucky, but her luck ran out fast. Tossed like a pebble by the currents of politics and magic, she lives in the accursed 'interesting times', on the eve of a civil war. Her worst enemy is a song that turns her into a rebel leader's lover in the popular imagination. The hapless lady's list of powerful enemies grows fast even before she helps an unassuming healer, Demure Yu, accused of consorting with the demons by the faeries.
The demons, and the faeries, the mages, the pirates - all kinds of powerful men and women of the Empire- get mixed into her song. Tien Lyn has to learn the hard way what it takes to run away from her own legend.
