Tanvers huddled inside her chrysanthemum pod. She was a budding flowerfly hibernating in a small living sanctuary. Absorbing nutrients from her host pod, she felt nourishing liquid being sent intravenously from stem and stigma. It pulsed through her limbs and thorax. Very quickly she was changing. Large protuberant wings on her torso became budding instruments of majesty; she could perceive the thrust of purple integument and ridged spiracles glistening in the misty light—light creeping through the petal-slits. Simultaneously the wiggle of stringy antennae and six, long bristly black legs became unmistakable.
