Now, at sixteen, she is getting her second abortion, and while she accepts that her relationship with the year-old political activist is over, Ange is totally convinced of the need for activism. In fact, Ange is willing to give up her goth-personality for a more responsible looking personality, and move to Washington, D.
Ange, at only sixteen, has some problems on her own, but manages living in a hostel, working at a grocery. Additionally, the protocol for dealing with a minor in the event of arrest is problematic and bureaucratic for a minor without a guardian to call upon. She is also required to have three haircuts a day. Not content with the vast lands he held, the Adversary has begun a major push into the Arabian Fable lands. As a result, a delegation led by Sinbad arrived at Fabletown to negotiate a possible alliance. The proceedings started poorly when the two sides clashed over Sinbad's slaves; they got much worse when one of Sinbad's sorcerers released a djinn with orders to kill Fabletown's top officials.
The Battle for Tomorrow: A Fable by Stuart Jeanne Bramhall
Frau Totenkinder used her magic to stop the djinn, and though Kay was able to determine that Sinbad did not order its release, the Arab leader was still blamed for bringing it to Fabletown. This was construed as an act of war, and the Fabletown government decided that Sinbad would be banished for life. The only way he could return was as a head of state; thus Prince Charming suggested that the Arabs form Fabletown East. Though it is a distinct state, Fabletown East's charter is heavily based on New York's.
Old King Cole was selected as ambassador; when he arrived, he discovered that the Arab fables still lived in mythic not mundane Baghdad , which was as yet untouched by the Adversary. Currently, Fabletown East is fortifying itself for a battle with the Adversary and preparing, if necessary, a controlled, orderly flight to the mundane world.
