    This is everything I could possibly want in a Captive Prince story, and more. Beautiful writing, and perfect characterisation.

    The last thing Ray was expecting from a rescue plan was Snart being thrown into the empty cell next to his. Anything that happened after that? Could probably not be called a plan at all.

    Summary

    Stiles had been like any other kid growing up in the era of dragons. He'd watched the cartoons, the news stories, had the lunch box. When his screening at Beacon Hills High had come up negative, he'd been disappointed but unsurprised. His positive results were returned three years too late for it to be in any way convenient or cool.

    Or, the one where they ride dragons.

    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.

    Written for Yuletide 2014.

    Summary

    The Bowerbird wasn't playing fair; Jack couldn't debate these pieces of paper. He couldn't tell pieces of paper and a growing pile of feathers that he, too, remembered the rare treat that was eating a single piece of tropical fruit in the heavy heat of a Christmas afternoon, stickying his best suit of clothes, which had been so clean and pressed for church that morning.

    (In which Inspector Jack Robinson is having a fairly uneventful year, divorce notwithstanding, until he acquires a lady doctor for a drinking buddy and receives a series of flirtatious notes from a jewel thief.)

    This is just such a pitch-perfect Eugenides and Costis story (other characters are in it too, but I won't spoil the ending). The banter is spot-on, Eugenides is in equal parts maddening and lovable, Costis is permanently several steps behind him to hilarious effect, and it made me grin from ear to ear.

    Joel is (justifiably) incredibly frustrated with the entire town, and it's simply hilarious to watch him gradually get sucked into the Cicely outlook. A wonderfully in character story that would have made a great episode.

    Banter? Check.
    Humour? Check.
    Moments going wrong? Check.
    Adorable ending? Check.
    In other words, it has everything a Sports Night story should have, and it does it all with charm.
