    Summary

    Obviously it wasn’t bad enough that Aaron is stuck making bizarrely complicated coffee for irritable undergrads at 6:30 AM instead of working with his mom at the White House. No, now he gets to watch as Alexander repeatedly screws his own chances at so-called “true love” by staring starstruck and tongue-tied at John all day like a creep and then not responding when John actually starts up a conversation. A less disciplined man than Aaron would have been sent screaming out of the café from sheer frustration by now.

    Summary

    Kel sat and thought about it all through the long summer-- thought about joining the Riders when she turned sixteen, or going back to the Yamani Isles with her parents, or running away to become an unlawful bandit hunter. She drank tea with her mother and accepted her quiet sympathy. She wondered what was going to happen to Peachblossom. She did her morning glaive practice dances in the heady air of the tiny courtyard garden of her parents' townhouse, where the cook grew herbs and spices in big overflowing boxes.

    Summer rolled on. She sat, and she thought, and she did not tell her thoughts to anyone. On the first day of what would have been her second year of page training, she woke before the sun and had a quiet breakfast with her father, and then she jogged up the big dusty hill to the palace.

    When the pages trailed out to the practice yards with dubious enthusiasm, she was waiting just outside their ground. Her chin was high, her shoulders loose while her hands gripped her weighted staff.

    "Probationer," Wyldon barked out her, when one of the boys went to fetch him. "Was I unclear in the spring?"

    Kel stared him down, fingers white on her staff, and said, "I'm not a probationer anymore."

    Summary

    Bucky really hated magic. He had always hated magic, ever since the first time he'd been forced to believe in it, back in the trenches in occupied France.

    He hated it even more now.

    A beautiful white swan was standing where Steve should have been, and Enchantress was fucking giggling like the asshole she was.

    In which magic is terrible, Steve is sick of this bullshit, and True Love Conquers All
