    Summary

    James Hazell is making a movie in London when his past comes back to confront him.

    “We’ve an old friend in common. Ralph Lanyon.”

    James felt his mouth dry out. He said nothing.

    “Gosh don’t you remember?” Bunny’s voice was light and innocent. “He remembers you. He was your head of house at school, wasn’t he? It sounds like he was terrifically strict.”

    He let his voice linger on ‘strict’. James swallowed.

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    Summary

    Mary Bennet agrees to spend the London season with the newly married Darcys. She discovers that she would still infinitely prefer a book. But hiding in the library at balls and parties is not the solution, as an odd young man keeps turning up there.

    “'Miss Bennet', she says. I did not know my Conscience would have such an ordinary name.”

    “I am not your conscience, sir,” Mary said, feeling made fun of and annoyed to be shaken out of her reverie for nonsense. “And whimsicality such as this, whilst charming in a child, is not so appealing in a grown man.”

    “Wait,” he said. “Do wait. I am so used to speaking in that silly way with silly young women that I quite forgot myself. Please stay and talk a little more.”

    (from the prompt "Mary's season in London. Her moralising is a trial to her sisters but in the end she outshines them all.")

    ETA Thank you to Prinzenhasserin for helping me bounce around some ideas, and to Burglebezzlement for the offer of betaing!

    Summary

    Someone had written a revisionist history book claiming that the idea for the piano was stolen from a wizarding instrument of great antiquity. Draco had to admit that anything involving stringing cat's guts on pegs and pounding them with hammers did seem about in the Pureblood line.
