    Summary

    There's something undoubtedly shitty about having a crush on your best friend, but there's something even worse about having a crush on your best friend's boyfriend.

    And, the Ultimate Worst, something that deserves the capital letters, is having a crush on both your best friend AND your best friend's boyfriend.

    Summary

    Everyone is born with a heart line, a pigmented mark running from the heart down the left arm to the palm, which turns color when the person comes of age, telling them when it is time to seek their soulmate. Red indicates a romantic love, while blue is for platonic "heart-friends", as the minstrels called it.

    Uther had always told Arthur to ignore his heart line, that it wouldn't matter who his soulmate was; princes did not marry for love, after all. If was lucky, he'd be able to keep her as a mistress, so long as he did not get any children with her. Uther hated magic and would have urged Arthur to ignore the heart line anyway, if he could.

    Arthur wasn't sure his soulmate was really a woman despite Uther's assumptions. But Arthur's heart line hadn't even come into its full color yet, which meant he hadn't come of age in the eyes of the gods, despite being named crown prince by Uther. So it really didn't matter: whoever his soulmate was, he wasn't yet ready to meet them.

    Then one day his heart line comes in, and it's neither red nor blue.

    Summary

    Being able to see the Red String of Fate all around him feels more like a curse than a gift each time Keith looks down at his own empty fingers.

    Summary

    “Not—not that you’d be my rebound! I mean, you’d be helping me take my mind off of this guy, but to be a rebound, I’d have to have dated him first, I think, and he doesn’t even know I like him, so. You wouldn’t be a rebound. At worst, we become badass partners-in-crime with a grudging respect for each other, at best, we’re soulmates for life and this is fate trying to help us find happiness. So. Um.” Lance swallows and looks up at the Blade of Marmora soldier through his lashes. “What say you?”

    They look down at their hands for a moment, fingers twisting together in deep thought. Then they’re pulling their gloves off, revealing pale, half-bruised knuckles of the human variation, and their mask is dissolving, giving way to big blue-purple eyes and an achingly familiar jet-black cowlick. “Who,” says Keith Kogane, in that low-pitched rumble that makes Lance’s stomach roil in the good way—holy fuck—“is this guy you’re trying to get over?”

    Summary

    Keith doesn't like Lance, or at least that's what he likes to tell himself. In all actuality, he likes Lance more than he should. So when the unfortunate timing of a physics exam forces him into an eight hour drive with only Lance to keep him company, he's unsure of how he's going to keep those feelings under control, or if he even wants to.

    Or, alternatively: a story about a solar eclipse, being nerdy with friends, and falling in love.
