    Summary

    “He looks too young to be taking his *own class*,” Costis continued. “He’s the worst Defense Against the Dark Arts professor we’ve ever had. And that's saying something.”

    “You’re mad for him, aren’t you,” Aris teased. “It’s ‘Queen’ Attolia all over again… calf-eyes and mooning and swearing fealty…”

    Costis felt his ears go scarlet.

    “I do *not* have a crush on the Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher,” Costis insisted.

    “Happy to hear it,” Professor Saccularius sang out. “As I understand it, those can be very awkward, for both parties. I’ll expect those scrolls on my desk first thing on Wednesday!” And he breezed past them as if he couldn’t tell that Costis was choking on his own tongue.

    *

    Or: the one where Costis is exceedingly suspicious of the new DADA professor.

    Summary

    A truth. She had lived a long time warmed only by quietly simmering rage. It had burned away many fears in the darkness, when all that was left to her was silence and recriminations. She could not have remained herself, the shadow queen, without a light source.
    He though, he took her fears and made them dance, then sacrificed them to his god that they might not trouble her again.

    Eugenides and Irene are very familar with nightmares. It's comfort that's unsettling to Attolia.

    Summary

    “I wish we knew where Eugenides has set his sights. You can’t deny he’s been distracted.”
    “Well, it’s not any of us…”
    “I’m sure it will come out sooner or later,” the twenty-three year old attendant said wisely. “These affairs always do. I just hope it’s someone very beautiful and not someone kind or influential. I like to think he’s very shallow.”
    Irene quietly coughed.

    Or, the one where Irene is married and her father is still alive, Eugenides is the worst diplomat ever, and Phresine is the only person in Attolia's court with eyes in her head.
