    Summary

    Jude thought asking The High King Cardan for knighthood would be a hard won battle. She didn't think he would so readily agree, let alone ask her to prove herself against another human knight.

    Where Cardan wants Jude to suffer but not suffer too much cause lets face it he's not a murderer and he doesn't like to see it either.

    Summary

    “Why do all those things, Cardan? Was it just to feel powerful for two seconds?”

    He hesitates. Sneers, the way he always does whenever there is a lie coating his tongue and he realizes he cannot spit it out. And then, “I wanted them to see me. Because no one does.”

    “I do. I see you.”

    Summary

    collection of drabbles, one-shots, and poetic prose inspired by && about the characters featured in the folk of the air series. some are ship oriented, some aren't, these writing pieces are not connected in terms of chronological order nor canon. each chapter will exist within its own bubble/canon divergence unless stated otherwise.

    ch.1 excerpt;

    usually jude would not fall so fast, so hard. she is no fool, she is not some bumbling idiot, she knows that nicasia can give her things she so desperately needs. lips to kiss, skin to touch, hair for her fingers to cascade through so comfortingly—no, no, that is not it. that is the hormones speaking, that is the hollow, empty aching speaking from her broken human heart. still, her mind is not what speaks, what answers is the writhing fire and lethal attraction coiling in the deepest recesses of her gut. "let us seal your loyalty...with a kiss."

    Summary

    Cardan hasn’t seen all sides of Jude Duarte. The thing that differs from his and most everyone’s understanding of her, is that he knows it. Knows she’s more than just a human girl who got lucky, knows that the danger of her isn’t that she wants the king’s favour, but that she doesn’t care for it.

    And yet, it’s somehow still a surprise when he felts the point of her dagger at his throat again. If nothing else, he hadn’t thought she could move so quietly. They pause there for a moment, the king on his balcony, the Queen in the shadows behind him. A decanter of wine rests on an elegantly wrought table where he had been about to indulge.

    A shame he hadn’t started sooner.

    Summary

    Jude.

    His hand forms the word without even thinking about it. Not surprising, really; his body has been doing all kinds of things with regards to the human girl lately, mostly without his consent.

    Summary

    “I could order you to be useful,” I say, soft.

    He steps forward, into my space. Lifts his chin, a challenge written in the clench of his jaw. “Why don’t you?”

    There’s heat in him, too. I make a mental catalogue of all my weapons, knowing he can’t hurt me and feeling comfort in the routine anyway. He doesn’t need his freedom to get under my skin. He does that well enough by existing.
