    Summary

    Bucky had heard of Hydra. Everyone had heard of Hydra: they ran the unicorn hunters down near the border. The last thing Bucky wanted was to get mixed up with hunters, but he was out of options. Unicorn hunters needed virgins, it was all Bucky had left to sell, and he was desperate for money to get his mom and sister out of their dying town.

    Indentured to Hydra, deep in the wilds, far away from civilisation, responsible for luring unicorns to their deaths, Bucky had never felt more alone.

    Until he met the Warden.

    Wardens enforced the hunting laws, had done ever since the country had nearly torn itself apart over the discovery that unicorns—beloved creatures, conduits to the gods above—could be turned into magical Devices, more powerful than anything a mage could produce, and Steve didn't let Hydra get away with anything.

    But Steve didn't treat Bucky like he was one of the hunters; he genuinely seemed to care about him, was always there when Bucky needed him, and suddenly Bucky wasn't so alone.

    Summary

    Taako’s senior year at Neverwinter High could be going better. Faced with a choice between joining the school’s floundering newspaper or being expelled, he opts for a career in journalism.

    Lucretia, the paper’s editor, kind of wishes he'd gone the other way.

    Summary

    Happily-ever-after is harder to find in the real world than it is in stories. Lup thinks she and Taako have earned their happy endings, and she'll make sure that Taako believes that, too.

    (After everything, all they really need for a happy ending is each other.)

    Summary

    It starts with some of the most mediocre eggs Taako's ever clapped eyes on. Seven out of ten for taste. Zero out of ten for plating. Somehow, they're still the best damn eggs he's ever eaten.

    (Or: Taako realizes he loves Kravitz back.)
