    Summary

    Pallas was an Akielon highborn, an aristocratic man of birth who'd always had his life set out for him, sculpted from expectations and legacy. He was to serve for his king, bring his country pride, and eventually be married off to the greatest prospect that his birthright could provide.

    It was simple, and something Pallas had never given a second thought to. He knew his obligations, and it had never crossed his mind to question them. His eminent fate had never compromised his rising through the ranks, nor had it impacted his many dalliances. They were brief, uncomplicated, unthreatening to his future.

    That was, until he met Lazar.

    Summary

    Laurent frowned and drummed his fingers against his laptop as he considered what to say. In theory, nothing was stopping him from going to Greece. Nothing was stopping him from maybe running into someone he met over Tinder. The only thing standing in his way was his own apprehension and mistrust about the whole situation.

    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

    “Jord, do you trust me?”

    “Yes, Your Highness. Of course.”

    The Prince shifts, twisting in his chair, and lifts a jacket-clad arm to hold something out. Jord takes a step forward, then sees it’s a horse’s bridle.

    “Nguhnh,” says Jord, with all the inelegance of someone never raised into the tact of noble society.

    The Prince’s face is very serious. And then he states, “I want you to sneak this into Prince Damianos’s rooms.”

    “Huhgnh.”
     

    Prince Laurent has some tasks for his men.

    Summary

    Since the Veretians saw Aklios, Damen decides his men should see Vere - when they arrive, the Aklions are predictably shocked by the customs, but Laurent gets a surprise of his own, in the form of a small blonde and beautiful sapphire boy with a filthy mouth and sharp wit, who was last seen withuot his eyes or his body.

    Summary

    Five years ago, Damen left Vere and the man he loved with every intention of going back. But he let himself be persuaded it would be a mésalliance. In all that time, he never found anyone to match Prince Laurent. And now a wedding is set to take place between prominent families of Patras and Vere, and Damen has to accept the invitation on his father's orders.

    Unfortunately for Damen, when he returns to Vere, at long last, it's Laurent's turn to reject him.

    With another Prince lurking and an ambitious pet on the prowl, Damen wonders if he'll ever find the courage to follow his heart again.

    And if he does, what can he do to regain Laurent's affections?

    An adaptation of Jane Austen's Persuasion.

    Summary

    "Don't you see...The American translation orders men to triumph over sin and you call sin ignorance. The king James translation makes a promise in 'Thou shalt', meaning that men will surely triumph over sin. But the Hebrew word, the word timshel- 'Thou mayest'- that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’—it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not'." - John Steinbeck, East of Eden.

    Summary

    The two biggest (and baddest) gangs, Akielos and Vere, have kept an uneasy peace for 6 years, after a violent turf war. When Auguste, the Veretian head was killed among the fighting, an agreement came out of it. Akielos would run the bottom half of the city, and Vere the top half. Right when Laurent is set to take over he is forced to run for his life. He ends up in Akielos territory where he plans to infiltrate the group, and convince the leader to help them (even if that means working in his nightclub as a skimpily dressed waiter).

    Summary

    ”Apologies, Exalted. What I meant – ”

    “What you meant is that you don’t know why I can’t remember anything since His Majesty flayed my back and had me dressed in gold paint and slave’s garb to serve him. But he was a prince then. And a king now.”

    Laurent tried to hide his flinch at the words, at his own memories. He looked away to the marble floor.

    Damianos continued: “You say that was four years ago. In that time, I seem to have aligned myself with him in country and in marriage. And no one tried to stop me.”

    Summary

    Laurent is a solitary witch and a prince whose right to the throne was erased when he was cast away by his power-hungry uncle who was afraid of his power. Living on the edge of the city, he begrudgingly makes simples and spells by day for the townspeople who come to him in order to get by, while at night he toils to no avail trying to find a spell, a curse, anything that will return to him the one thing he wants: his brother. One day, Damen turns up at his door guided by a compulsion spell placed on him by an unknown witch or warlock. Unable to accomplish any progress toward resurrecting his dead brother while Damen is present and fawning over him, Laurent proceeds to try and break the spell, making Damen various potions, casting counter curses, and even getting Damen to take part in some strange activities. As with all good fairytales, the spell is only broken with true loves kiss, but what Laurent fails to consider is that Damen might have feelings for him even when he’s not under the spells power, and that maybe his brother isn’t the one thing he wants after all.

    Summary

    Two hundred years ago the final battle of the Siege of Delpha had taken place. Akielos won and a year later struck a peace treaty with Vere which had lasted (and was still going strong) to this day. He was currently walking where many ancient wars had happened. He was currently touching walls that used to be the center of the Artesian Empire. What must it have been like? Having Vere and Akielos be not only allied but one in the same? What must it have been like having Vere and Akielos be enemies?

    Summary

    “Besides,” Damen said, cupping his cheek lightly, “You won’t be alone. Nikandros will be by your side.”

    And there lay the true reason for this trip. It was important to Damen, Laurent knew, for the two of them to get along.

    The issue was not that they did not get along. On the contrary, Laurent respected Nikandros more than he did most men, and he was quite certain that Nikandros did not, altogether, hate him. It was only that...they were different men. And different men often disagreed when coexisting in the same space. Or squabbled like old maids, as Damen often liked to refer to it.

    or

    Nik and Laurent take a trip and everything goes wrong.
