    Summary

    Seeing Essek on his own? It's easy to see him as a fluke, especially when he acts so aloof from the rest of his culture. But seeing him with his family... Beau is uncomfortably familiar growing up with that kind of environment.

    Summary

    ‘Essek.’ Jester draws out the second syllable, and the tension in the air dies down from boiling to on a low simmer. ‘Why do you keep calling her ‘the Umavi’? She’s your mom, right?’

    Essek’s smile softens slightly, but it's still thin-lipped. Mirthless. ‘You will not be there to meet my mother, Jester. You will be there for a formal introduction to the head of Den Thelyss.’

    (In which the Mighty Nein have dinner with Deirta Thelyss, and learn where the venom in Essek's veins came from.)

    Summary

    Atop his platform the Kuninotokotachi smiled, raised hands that were white and clean. He spoke clearly and evenly in his own flowing language, giving benediction and reassurance to the camp of refugees that had been accumulating in this village in Calabria in the last four years. Victor didn't know Japanese, didn't understand what was spoken, but the soft voice washed over him like a river, seemed responsible for the gentle breeze that blew into the proceedings and disrupted the intentions of the merciless sun. A young man in blue under a white umbrella, with his eyes shining, and a smile in his words.

    Christophe tugged on his elbow. "Did you hear me, Victor?"

    "Mm?" Victor shook his head, trying to clear it.

    "I asked if you were ready to meet him."

     

    Victor Nikiforov, reporter for the New York Times, goes to Italy to interview a shinto priest in exile, and makes a friend.

    Summary

    Katsuki sits cross-legged, clearly in no hurry to go anywhere. “What’s your name? I’m –”

    “I know who you are,” he cuts him off, then blushes, then hates himself for both those things. Katsuki looks surprised, and Yuri can’t think as to why. He’s a nationally ranked figure skater. He’s Yuri’s favorite figure skater.

    ~

    Yuuri and Yuri become friends and Viktor develops a crush.
