    Summary

    Mute, a Royal Warlock fresh from the academy, gets assigned a simple task: kill a dragon. He doesn't really want to, as he believes magical creatures deserve respect instead of death, but orders are orders. And his explicitly state to sympathise with the beast, befriend some deities, make a few groundbreaking discoveries and upend the status quo entirely. That's what it said, right?
    ...right?

    Summary

    "Arthur had learned this dance over the past decade. It was much more delicate than the ugly tumble it took to start a fight. Finding out if someone was itching for violence was simple, the signs often plain and in the open. It was expected of men to have the urge sometimes, as if they had a build-in affinity towards bloodied knuckles and bruised skin.

    But the other dance was more complicated. It worked through small gestures, lingering gazes, fleeting touches. It had taken Arthur years to learn the intricacies of it.

    He had also learned the prize for any misstep."

    Summary

    'Alex is left alone, left to watch his only comrades disappear into the swarms of people. He was going home, but after years spent alone with his empty fucking house, he can’t help but feel he’s just watched one of the only home’s he’s ever had walk out of his life.'

    Summary

    “Write me,” Alex says, pressing a scrap of paper into Tommy’s hand. “Please.”

    He looks earnest, pleading almost.

    He doesn’t look like the man Tommy pulled out of the water five weeks ago, soaked through and gasping for breath.

    Summary

    The yoga was just as unbearably difficult as last week. Daud struggled to keep his face expressionless, but he kept slipping. Sarnai came by a few times to correct his poses, and Daud was torn between resenting admiration and burning shame; yoga was so much more awful than he’d ever imagined.
    Billie was going to be grounded until she turned twenty.
