    Summary

    His first royal decree was for every book on magic, every book on witchcraft and spells, be brought to the royal palace, and for every scholar who knows even a bit on witches to bring their knowledge to the imperial city. Namjoon, Taehyung’s second eldest brother, at twelve, is excused from their daily lessons to learn more about the arcane craft instead when Taehyung first falls ill.

    Taehyung is seven when he inherits the curse, only a month after the king passes on.

    Summary

    Welcome to year 2238! Futuristic dreams like flying cars, sentient robots, everblooming cherry trees and longer-lasting youthful looks had all come true. Everything seemed perfect – but nothing really was so.

    OR

    Jungkook is immune to the pill that is making everyone emotionless and Namjoon is an odd tarot reader he meets at the Annual Market.

    Summary

    “Spice and silk and trade and cloth. These are the things one goes to war over, but in my heart of hearts, I know they are not worth it.”
    - quoted from a letter penned by the Crown Prince to his lover, at the end of the Southern War

    *

    “It’s got ears,” says the man that’s choking him. Hoseok. “Look, look. It’s got - like a cat.”

    “Let me-” Yoongi wheezes, phlegm in the back of his throat, stars in his eyes, “Let me-”

    “So Jungyoo wasn’t lying.”

    Hoseok pushes harder. Yoongi realises faintly that he isn’t even touching the ground; Hoseok is holding him against the wall, Yoongi’s feet dangling uselessly a foot from the floor. “Why are you here?”

    “He’s got the house markings,” Seokjin stretches over Hoseok’s shoulder and presses a thumb to the centre of Yoongi’s forehead, smearing the makeup there. The warpaint. “Maybe-”

    “But why’s he got ears?”

    Yoongi claws ever-more desperately. (Oh, if Jeongguk could see him now - he’d be a disgrace.)

    “Hoseok-ah, I think you’re choking it.”

    Summary

    It’s hard to think that life could be anything other than this.

    The town is what tourists call an escape.

    Hoseok calls it an escape, too.

    ***

    Hoseok was going to die, and now he isn't, and now every mythological creature in the world seems to want to kill him. But that's okay, because Yoongi is one of them, and Hoseok would go through a hell of a lot just to hold Yoongi's hand and, like, tell him he's pretty.

    As it turns out, he has to go through a hell of a lot just to hold Yoongi's hand and tell him anything at all.
