    Summary

    Traditionally a Prince of Akielos must enter a Selection when he comes of age, 25 young women are chosen from all over to vie for his hand in marriage. This time though the young men are invited as well and Damen is in well over his head. Especially when a golden haired Prince of Vere turns up late, is nothing but snarky and ill-tempered and Damen can't help but like him.

    Laurent doesn't want to be in Akielos at all, let alone in a competition to marry an Akielon Prince, but now that he is he thought it might at least be fun to mess with the competition for awhile before he gets sent home. And then he actually meets Prince Damianos and his world turns upside down.

    **Basically a mash-up AU of The Selection (by Kiera Cass) and The Bachelor

    Summary

    “Don’t read it,” Damen says, urgently, and he tries to pull Laurent back.

    In Akielon and, oddly, Veretian, the wall of the cave says: What does your heart desire?

    Laurent already has everything that his heart desires. Everything except- Auguste.

    Summary

    After a long-coming yet inevitable coup from the Regent leaves Laurent unprotected and unwanted in his own kingdom, there is only one king he could ally himself with and one way he can make that happen. Marriage would have been politics anyway, nevermind the fact Damianos of Akielos is the man Laurent swore to kill six years ago.

    Summary

    "Luckily for you, I suppose I could be persuaded to do you the favour of becoming your pet to improve your image. Just because I pity you, you understand."

    Of course. Nicaise couldn't possibly be making such a kind and selfless offer because he suddenly wanted to stick close to Laurent for some reason.

    Or because he was running from something, more to the point.

    "Did you steal another fork?" Damen asked.

    "I traded with one of our soldiers for a knife," said Nicaise. "It's very sharp."

    Summary

    Prince Laurent of Vere is supposed to be dead. He was supposed to be betrayal, brutalized, and murdered by men hired by his own family. But instead, he is pressed against a broad, warm chest and promised that he’ll have an army to reclaim his crown if he journeys to Akielos and wins a competition there called ‘The Kallisti’.

    Crown Prince Damianos of Akielos is on a mission to prove his honor and courage through a contest. When he rescues someone claiming to be the Prince of Vere from being drugged and murdered, he finds his key to victory. Now all he has to do is bring everyone back to Ios without getting killed…

    Based on the French fairytale ‘Peau d’Ane’ and a classic Greek myth.

    Summary

    He was struck, suddenly, by the knowledge that Laurent was a man now, no longer the overly energetic little boy who loved flowers and sunshine and silly, frivolous things. It wasn’t that Auguste hadn’t known that his brother was a man before now -- of course he had -- but the weight of what he was about to do brought him a new appreciation of Laurent’s maturity.

    Summary

    In order to get over all the stress with Jokaste, Damen decides to take a break. The only presentable solution is a week in a small town his father once suggested. Damen's plan is to distract himself as often as possible and to have a lot of hook-ups, because sex always helped him. What he doesn't plan is to meet the most beautiful human being he has ever seen on his last day there, on Sunday, and to only make him hate him because - how should it be otherwise - they only make acquaintance as Laurent knocks on his door, seeing a naked Damen and asks him to be silent and "to stop riding other people and making those animalistic sounds". However, when Damen is ready to depart, he's stopped by a storm that doesn't let him leave town and when he spends another night in the hotel and wakes up the next morning, he notices that actually no day has passed and it's still Sunday..

    Summary

    It was— good, to see Nicaise like that; smiling, not out of spite or because of his own cunning, but open, honest, genuine. It had taken a good three years to get here.

    “You don't have to look so smug, Your Highness,” Nicaise rolled his eyes. “What are you smirking at?”

    I'm just grateful, Laurent thought.

    (Years later, Laurent and Nicaise place another bet.)

    Summary

    There was nothing, except maybe losing to the Akielons that Laurent hated about A Capella. And Laurent was more than sure that the Akielon’s new lead was only going to add to Laurent’s love of the hobby. Throughout the performance Laurent only looked back at Damen once, to see a gaping mouth and a mischievous glint in his eye. He smirked. The competition was going to be interesting this year.

    Summary

    “They will stop underestimating you,” Laurent advises him, “when they see you make more solid movements in court. Pretty words are nice, but they simply don’t know what you’re capable of just yet.”

    Nicaise scowls. Being underestimated isn’t a bad thing strategically, but it grated.

    They wanted to see what he was capable of? Nicaise would show them.

    Summary

    King Laurent asks him, “How was your first Veretian council?” and Nicaise grimaces. The king smirks, like, ‘Oh, I know.’ It had been nerve-wracking, to sit there in full awareness of the councilors’ disapproval of him, the half-voiced insults and barely-there accusations.

    Never had a pet risen high enough in society to truly join the royal council. Nicaise had never been important enough to actually feature in courtier gossip. “I think I prefer the Akielon court,” Nicaise sighs.

    “I never thought I’d see the day,” Nikandros of Ios quips, and Nicaise turns pink.

    “I wasn’t talking to you.”

    Summary

    On the first day under Prince Laurent and King Damianos’ rule, the Regent’s body is draped from the gates of Ios. It isn’t particularly bloody. It’s undamaged except for a single, fatal red line across the neck. But it hangs limp from the gates, a dead, dishonored body.

    Nicaise takes a good long look at it, and thinks, You planned to take my head and serve it to the Crown Prince, and now he will be King. He takes a savage, exhausting sort of satisfaction in it. The Regent is dead.

    Nicaise spits on his pale feet.
