    Summary

    "There’s something else down here. It’s something dark and old, and it feels—
    —like it’s trying to get out."

     

     

      The worst was the feeling.
    It was in the darkness. In the ache eating it's way through his skin, his muscles, his bones. In the serrated chill living in his morrow. It was in the terrible knot in his gut that's been there since hands closed around his throat and a voice screamed "Run".
    ----------

     
    Or an attempt at trying to figure out what was going on in Will's head on the ship, a little before he meets Violet and everything really starts happening.

    Summary

    How Will and James ended up stranded in the middle of a distant year was an enthralling mystery. One second, the couple was navigating their way through their confusing but thrilling dark magical lives in the early 1800s, and the next, they woke up with entirely new and purely confusing lives in what they presume are the 2000s, at least. Neither had a clue what had happened, but James was willing to bet that it was somehow Cyprian’s fault, despite the fact that Cyprian hadn’t even travelled with them. Or if he did, he was in a completely different section of the world that Will and James would most likely never stumble upon.

    Summary

    How could no one in this damned place know where one single man was? Surely, Anharion wasn’t hard to spot, not with his shining golden head, so out of place among these dark, cold walls. His footsteps were heavy as he walked towards his own rooms, mind running wild with all the possible scenarios. Did Anharion get away? Changed his mind so quickly? Has someone from the outside got to him? His head hurt with all of these.

    Or, how Sarcean got the idea for the Collar.

    Summary

    And then, there were two warm hands on his own, a pair of deep green eyes with a strong hint of blue, and a gentle smile.

    “I will watch for you, and you for me, and we will fight the darkness for each other.”

    So they had promised.

    Summary

    will and james meet again, in the 20th century. this time, they remember

    “You came for me,” he murmurs, breathless. His porcelain features are flushed from champagne and another, darker thrill revealed in his blown pupils. He wavers a few paces away from Will, unsteady, as if he doesn’t quite trust what he’s seeing.

     

    Will doesn’t reply right away. Lets the invisible hands brush aside his hair from his face, a touch so faint it could be mistaken for the evening breeze.

    Summary

    Will hadn't lifted his hand, and James's pulse was a slow throb under his warm skin.

    "Do the Stewards realize you're clever?" James's voice was intimate, new, and subtly approving, like he'd learned a secret. Will stayed where he was for a long moment, before stepping back to simply regard James from the opposite wall of the cell.

    "Does Simon realize that you are?"

    Summary

    Will hadn’t known that James could become any more distraught, but when his words seemed to bury in his throat and he froze, Will realized that it could get worse. It could always get worse. James’s eyes stayed locked with his own.
    “That’s what it was?” He whispered. “That feeling?”
    Will smiled sadly. “You’ve finally got it.”

    (Will actually tells James that he's the Dark King, and it's not realistic whatsoever but I'm desperate)
