    Summary

    “I think I remember how to play,” Laurent said, and his voice was uncharacteristically shy. Damen had never seen him open himself to anyone other than Damen, and he knew that part of it was that Laurent was trying to prove himself to the other soldiers. He could not exchange crude stories or engage in sexual jokes and soldierly camaraderie, but he could give them this.
    **
    In which Laurent joins the soldiers around the campfire in order to prove a point to Damen, and exact revenge on his lover for his absence.

    Summary

    ‘Oh good, more excellent ideas from Thor,’ Loki sighs with a total and complete lack of enthusiasm. ‘Can’t I just push Heimdall down the stairs or something?’

    ‘How is that a good deed?’ Thor asks, bewildered.

    ‘It would give everyone a good laugh,’ Loki says, the corner of his mouth twitching. ‘I’m laughing on the inside just picturing it.’

    ---

    In which Loki is roped into cleaning up his act to reassure the people that he isn't planning on betraying them (again), while Thor spends far too much time explaining that no, they aren’t sleeping together.

    Summary

    "You're exactly the man they say you are, aren't you?" He said it like it was an oddity, something rare to be picked up and studied closely. There was a burning kind of intensity in his eyes that was a far cry from the dismissive glances Damen had earned from Laurent so far this evening.
    "And you aren't, I'm beginning to suspect."

    After centuries of war, Akielos and Vere are on the eve of a historic peace treaty. At a lavish ball in celebration, Damen meets the Veretian prince, every bit as obnoxious as the rest of his people and as reluctant to bond with his new allies as Damen is himself. But perhaps, by the end of the night, the idea of welcoming a Veretian into his country, his palace, and maybe even his bed, won't seem like such a bad one.

    Summary

    When Thor is like this -- of good mood and given to indulgence, warm-flushed and eyes heavy-lidded -- Loki cannot help but desire him all the more, even if he will admit it only to himself. There are many versions of Thor, each alike and different in their own ways, but this one is amongst Loki’s most beloved.

    (They are gods, and they are not: Loki prefers to worship in his own way.)

    They're just baking, after all. And maybe it's totally necessary for Jack to stand up against him like that, to get in close to help roll the dough- well, it's not necessary at all for Jack's fingers to make their way under his shirt and tickle his stomach.

    In the economy of chess, victory is not about numbers, but about space. You don't lose when you have the lowest number of pieces.
    You lose when you have nowhere left to run.

    Laurent's thoughts, from Captive Prince to Kings Rising.

    Summary

    He thought of the long faces of the members of the Veretian council, when they had first suggested, with reluctant gravitas, the two kings should marry. Like it would be a hardship for them. Like it hadn't been an obvious consequence, so inevitable that it had been unspoken between him and Laurent until then, a silent promise.
    "Marriage," Laurent had said, his mouth curling. "How did we not think about it before, Damianos?"

    Summary

    “Run,” said the monk and took his arm.

    “I'm not with you,” Baze snapped, ducking as blaster fire whined overhead.

    “Tell that to them!” The mad monk was grinning as if this was all a grand game. The street erupted into chaos, but the monk slipped nimbly through the churning currents, Baze following in the cleared path, aware of the troopers at their backs.

    In which Baze and Chirrut meet under less than auspicious circumstances, go on the run, vex Baze's partner, and maybe find their way back home.
