    Summary

    AU: Gen and Irene met as children, and have been in a hidden relationship for years now. The plan is to get married, but the relationship between their countries is still fraught, and with Gen's position as Thief of Eddis, it wouldn't be looked well upon. But people are starting to notice their closeness anyway. They decide they need a distraction, something to dispel the rumors until they can be married.

    Enter Costis.

    Summary

    The king’s face was turned away. Costis bent to look at it closely, aware that he was taking a liberty very few must have. Eugenides looked different in his sleep, younger and— Costis searched for a word — gentler. --The King of Attolia (The Queen's Thief series. Book 3).

    Happy belated birthday to Havisham! A little nothing of a ficlet. I would someday love to write a real Costis/Gen/Irene short story. Just a teaser for your birthday, which I hope you will enjoy.

    Summary

    Costis’s eyes were drawn to Eugenides’s face, the rings on his hands, the place under his coat where Costis knew there was still a scar. Eugenides never looked at him, but Costis still had the uncomfortable feeling that the king knew. The king knew everything.

    Summary

    If they told him to march in opposite directions, he doesn’t know which one he would follow. Some days, his head tells him, There is your queen, and there is her cowherd kidnapper, but his heart tells him, There is your king, and there is the woman who still gives him nightmares. He hates each of them, for the other’s sake. He thinks the person he hates the most is himself. He thinks he’s losing his mind.

    Summary

    “Think of your poor sister, alone in a strange place. Come now, Costis. Even you can’t possibly be so hard-hearted.” And then the king was beside her, grabbing her hand and Costis’ and clasping them together. He looked up at Costis with laughing eyes. “I can make it an order.”

    In which Thalia Ormentiedes meets royalty....and Costis is definitely in over his head.
