    Summary

    The Empress was different. Good assassins aren't supposed to feel and they aren't supposed to regret, but there was Daud, feeling things and regretting everything.

    A story of redemption, love, anger and revenge. Repost of my 'honour for all' series.

    Summary

    There is a plastic spray bottle under the bathroom sink. The peeling paper logo on the glass cleaner boasts utmost satisfaction, but every time Jane’s used it, the mirror has been left streaked and smudged. One mess traded for another. She has not used the spray bottle in a long time. Some days, she opens the cabinet and sees it, sitting half empty and stagnant. The liquid is beginning to congeal. She looks at the putrid mess inside with something approaching empathy, and wonders idly if she should drink it. If that would be enough to flush out whatever it is that’s lodged itself inside of her.

    Jane is not completely self-unaware. She knows these are not healthy thoughts to have. That she is not well. What she doesn’t know is what to do about it.

    Summary

    The first thing they taught every experimental vessel captain was the reasons why they should never, ever use the experimental parts of the ships unless they absolutely had to do so. Seth knew exactly why that was. The list of reasons that the technology should have only been used as a last resort was a mile long.

    But the problem with a last-resort option was that sometimes you really did reach your last resort.

    OR

    Seth and Iris meet ART for the first time.

    Summary

    Peter is easy to handle once Martin figures him out. For all his posturing and waxing poetic about his calling to the Lonely, Peter craves attention.

    Or maybe it’s just Martin’s attention. Martin isn’t cursed with overconfidence, but he knows he can’t be imagining Peter’s fixation. When they’re together, it’s as if no one else exists. Even when he’s pretending to ignore Martin, he still follows him out of the corners of his eyes, tilting his head to follow Martin’s voice as he bustles around the office and does all the real work.

    Summary

    The creature lifts its head slowly, drowsily, its lips pulling back to show sharp white teeth. Jon can feel the scream gathering behind his own teeth, and then its eyes open lazily, soft blue and achingly familiar as they focus on Jon, and all the breath goes out of him at once.

    “Martin?” he manages to whisper.

    *

    Jon and Martin learn some new things about each other and their relationship.
