    Summary

    His not-quite corporeal form leaned against the opposite end of her workbench, his neck exposed to the setting sunlight, a streak of red-tinted light across his neck in a violent slash. Hermione was doing her best to ignore the way his breathing filled the space between bubbles in her potions or how the air in the room changed whenever he entered. AU. COMPLETE. SPOOPYSCARYDULCEWEEN

    “A te la mossa, comandante”.
    Le labbra di Cullen si inarcano in quel mezzo sorriso che è solo suo, come se mezza faccia volesse stare al gioco e l’altra metà si sforzasse di mantenere il suo solito rigore marziale.
    “La fretta non è la migliore caratteristica di un giocatore di scacchi, lord Pavus”.

    Summary

    She was stubborn as well as kind, and loved him beyond reason. Read as a stand-alone from the start, from Chapter 43 to skip the re-telling of canon story (Lavellan PoV), or in parallel with other points of view given in Mind Heart, Under the Fresco, or, eventually, Out of the dimness. Wild dreams, lore and slow-burning veilfire, blazing by the end.

    Summary

    "It's your turn," Jaebum says and he sounds the same. Same voice dry, deep, a bit monotone but it shakes Jackson to his core and his hands tremble as he moves the same pawn from before one more spot forward.

    "Jackson." Jackson says softly and Jaebum moves his rook this time, three paces forward, right next to Jackson's pawn.

    "Jackson." Jaebum repeats, motioning Jackson's turn.
