The Ambitious Ocean is one of many short stories to stem from the world of October Daye, written by Seanan McGuire. This particular short story is only available (I think) through Seanan McGuire’s Patreon. However, if you’re a fan of hers, it is absolutely worth signing up for!

Once upon a time, Patrick Twycross was just a hopeless romantic. He was a man in love, and he didn’t think about the repercussions of any of it. He certainly didn’t think twice about crossing Evening Winterrose, even though by all rights he should have.

By reading the main series, it’s fairly easy to put together the events that occurred within The Ambitious Ocean. Still – there’s a difference between knowing and seeing. What happens here…it shows the true love and dedication these two characters felt for one another.

More than that, it really lets readers see what Patrick’s character is like. He’s never shone so much, even though the darkest parts of this short. The way he treats Daffodil, Simon, and Dianda speaks volumes, and it’s going to help me picture his character differently from now on.
