    Summary

    Iwaizumi Hajime,” Santiago sounds out. Those damn telescope eyes. “Huh. I thought his name was Iwachan?”

    “Is it the wrong guy?” Mateo narrows his eyes. “No, that’s definitely him, that’s the dude from Tooru’s homescreen… is it?”

    “Only one way to find out!” Santiago says cheerfully.

    Team Argentina gets to know Iwaizumi Hajime (27) Athletic Trainer.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Apparently the entire Japanese team is made up of people who were either directly or indirectly Tooru’s high school rivals. “That’s actually kind of impressive, if you think about it,” Mateo points out at lunch. Tooru is at the buffet table piling tiny glazed bread rolls onto his plate—Mateo snagged one off Santiago earlier; they’re a bit like pan de leche, so definitely not dietician-approved, but whatever. They’re at the Olympics, they can indulge if they want. “I feel like most people never even get a single high school rival at all. Did you? I didn’t.”

    “We had rival schools,” Tomás says thoughtfully. “Could probably still name a few of the aces. And Santiago, of course.” Santiago bobs his head genially, because he really is a once-in-a-century type of player. It’d be more infuriating if he demurred, so Mateo lets him off with a gentle elbow. “But personal rivals? I don’t think so. Not with the, like, passionate metaphorical monologues that Toto made it sound like they were nonstop firing off at each other.”

     

    Mateo looks at the two bodyguard-esque men. They look back at him. The larger and incrementally more stoic one says, in careful English, “Oikawa Tooru was an esteemed competitor of mine in high school. We came to greet him.”

    “Friends of Tooru’s are friends of ours!” Tomás says. “Rivals of Tooru’s are friends of ours? Give me a second…”

    So it turns out that these three in particular were Tooru’s direct high school rivals—two of them were even Tooru’s middle school rivals, which is genuinely amazing. Mateo doesn’t think he was conscious during middle school.

    Summary

    The overworked project manager on the redesign of the Imperial Lambda-class shuttle gets surprisingly competent feedback from an unknown official on Coruscant. She promptly decides that anyone bored enough to do a technical review of their own free will should be found proper employment for their own good.

    Her correspondent has been missing the opportunity to tinker with machinery. It gives him something to do between hunting down rebels.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The parabatai bond is being weird (again) and sometimes Alec and Jace are more like Alec-and-Jace. That's just where this all starts, though. This is about contracts, bonds, obligations, and vows, along with all the other invisible ties that bind us like love and family. Some you seek out, some you keep, and some... some you break.

    Summary

    They still had an hour before the doors officially opened, but it was hard not to feel rushed when a dragon was impatiently waiting outside your dorm. Okay, he had his phone, keys, wallet, a hoody for chilly high-altitude winds, and...wait, where were those tickets, again?

    “Come on, Cef!” Samaritan said, practically vibrating with excitement. “I wanna see Temeraire!”
