This universe picks up where Sapphire Days leaves off—the Bob-White
girls are now high school graduates and face the joys and pressures and
heartaches of being on their own for the first time.
Unlike Sapphire Days, these stories may or may not be
Jixemitri Circle Writing
Projects. This is a different universe for me because, so
far, all of the Mart-Di story arc stories were
inspired by songs. Until this universe, none of my stories were
inspired by songs, but Di and Mart seem to speak to me through music,

The first five stories were a result of my 2005
Currently, there are four additional planned stories.
The Bob-White girls are off to their respective colleges.
