Every since Cal walked in on Tyr and Rabbit in the stockroom, he hasn't been able to look his Captain in the face and he's been uncomfortable around Tyr. What do you think about that?
Notice how Cal crosses out any references to Rabbit's gender in his letter. He doesn't want to shock his sister.
Notes: King Ghouls are dead psychics. If they resurrect, they also wake and control the dead around them.
Skoll looks apprehensive because they're facing someone who can get in your head. Many Skins will brave certain physical dangers but remain wary of psychic interference.
Whatever issues Skoll might have with Tyr's bisexuality, he's still a dependable soldier and certainly has no desire to challenge Tyr. They had a run-in several years earlier that left Skoll spitting out teeth and in no doubt who was top dog. Since then, he defers to Tyr in public (although he may bitch about him behind his back.)
The whole ghoul fight takes place a day or so before Cal meets Quartz. So he's still hasn't come to terms with m/m relationships yet.
Currently I'm busy launching Smoke, Fur And Stone as well as working on the prize pictures for the last contest. Therefore I'll start to post Skins - Chapter Three at the end of this month.
