    Summary

    “Hi! Um. I’m calling to follow up on an email that I sent a few weeks back? I sent it to the one listed on your website?”

    Phoenix winces. One of Maya’s ideas, and while a good one, he hasn’t updated it for the better part of a decade. “Yeah? Sorry about that, we’ve been having, um...some server problems. Are you calling for legal advice, or to secure representation?”

    “Oh! Um, no.” He lifts his thumb and swings it down in Trucy’s direction, tongue poking out of his mouth, and she blows a raspberry in solidarity. “I was actually calling about, um— theThemisStudentInternshipand Iwaswonderingif youhadanyspotsavailable.”

    “The what.”

    A quick, staticky inhale, then: “ARE YOU TAKING INTERNS RIGHT NOW?!”

    Phoenix recoils, cringing away from the phone, and Trucy whistles long and loud. “Wow,” she says, eyes dazzled.

    (Or: Seven times someone gives Apollo Justice a chance, and one time he takes a stand, for himself and for everything he loves.)

    Summary

    (In which Kakeru gets a cat, Machi gets a new friend, and Yuki tries to get his shit together.)

    They’d stumbled into this whole thing, on a night when they’d lost track of time. Yuki had come over to study for an exam, but Kakeru had started playing some old 8-bit video game and they got distracted. After they’d smoked, the colors on the screen felt like they were inside Yuki’s head. His skull was a kaleidoscope and at the time that was hilarious, and better than what was usually inside his head. When Kakeru looked over at him Yuki felt hungry, hungry for the lights washing out his face, hungry for the softness in his eyes, hungry for the way he could read his mind sometimes, when he was done joking around or treading water trying to fill every silence.

    Summary

    Apollo is going on a work trip with his boss, the boss' daughter, and his coworker Athena to Europe for a week, and he asks Klavier Gavin, the only other available person he's pretty sure he can trust, to take care of his rare male calico and best friend, Mikeko. Mikeko takes a liking to Klavier, and the conversations involving him over text bring Apollo a lot closer to Klavier than he originally thought--close enough to get the guts to ask him out on a date. A date that doesn't go as planned.

    Summary

    It's been a year since Prince Langa smiled. The queen offers a reward to anyone who can fix that. Reki would give it a try, but he's pretty sure being the one who broke the prince's heart disqualifies him.

    “You’ve been quiet. Are you jealous?”

    Reki lurches up. “Jealous of what?”

    Miya’s brow angles impossibly higher. “Of all the attention the prince is getting?”

    Right, of course. That’s what anyone would be jealous over. “I just don’t believe it. Prince Langa isn’t…” he waves one hand, frowning, “...like that.”

    “Ha,” Miya crows. “Like you’d know.”

    But he does. And Reki thinks: I could do it. I could make him smile. I’ve done it before.
