    Summary

    "I can't listen to this, Dameron." Jyn, each word low and angry, but he recognizes the fear beneath. "I'm getting him out."

    There's rather a lot people will risk, when someone they love is in danger. At the Battle of Endor, Jyn and Cassian are reminded first hand.

    Summary

    Loki panicked. Nothing in his bag of tricks could help her, and if he did not help then Sif would bleed out in his arms, and the only thing he could think was that he could not lose her. In the blink of an instant wrapped his magic around the both of them.

    Summary

    “I’d never seen anything like that before,” she says. His mouth presses into a tight line, his arms following suit. “No,” he says. “But we were lucky.”

    She’d heard that before, usually from soldiers who didn’t know how to explain their escape or their skill. Usually, she didn’t believe it when she heard it.

    Still, it was hard to contest his point.

    “Do you dream about it?” she asks and he finally looks at her. He doesn’t wake from nightmares like she does but he does sleep in a taut line, thrown out into war, and she wonders. She wonders how alone they both are.

    “All day,” he says.

    (She wraps her arms around him, holds him tight until he falls asleep.)

    Summary

    She wonders, staring up at the cracked ceiling of her (his) cabin, whether or not her twelve year old self would have ever imagined her to at some point in the future land herself in a situation where she is lying naked in an (ex?) smuggler’s cabin while escaping the wrath of the Galactic Empire, stranded in space with no light speed, a disturbingly perceptive wookiee and a droid whose only function seems to be worrying.

    Summary

    A Modern day Merlin AU set at the University of St Andrews, featuring teetotal kickboxers, secret wizards, magnificent bodyguards of various genders, irate fairies, imprisoned dragons, crumbling gothic architecture, arrogant princes, adorable engineering students, stolen gold, magical doorways, attempted assassination, drunken students, shaving foam fights, embarrassing mornings after, The Hammer Dance, duty, responsibility, friendship and true love...

    This story was inspired by the thought of Prince William of Wales (and indeed the current Max von Hapsburg) studying at the University of St Andrews; it is also, as the title suggests, at least a little inspired by the operetta 'The Student Prince'.

    Grateful thanks to Lamardeuse and DarkEmeralds for Beta and cheerleading!
