    Summary

    Instead, Al-Haitham asks, “If you did not find me to get your key back, what would you have done?”

    And Kaveh answers without a single fraction of hesitation, “Removed the hinges from the door.”

    Al-Haitham feels laughter spread through his chest although he does not release it. Kaveh knows anyway, because he moves in closer, elbow hitting against Al-Haitham’s and Kaveh does allow his own laugh to escape him when Al-Haitham tries to trip him and fails.

    Summary

    He wakes in a room fully formed. The body is a man with long, finely shaped limbs, bitter blood, and supple skin. The body wakes with Al-Haitham inside of it, and the people in the room look at him with wide and frightened eyes and Al-Haitham asks, “Who are you?”

    They do not answer him, they return the question instead, which brings Al-Haitham the first emotion he can remember: annoyance.

    -

    An AU in which Al-Haitham was always known to be something god-adjacent. There are two god-kings kept trapped in the Sanctuary of Surasthana. They're tearing each other apart. They're the only things keeping each other together.

    Summary

    Now this is familiar, more comfortable, territory: talking about Sumeru and other people and their problems.

    This Nahida can do. This, Nahida knows.

    So Nahida waves Al-Haitham forward, drawing his attention back to herself, and shows to him her plans thus far. She answers his questions with General Mahamatra’s help, and they talk and they plan and they build.

    They talk to each other, they ask each other questions, and Nahida can keep up. They debate over details, each of them bringing something different but good and useful to the figurative table as well as the literal one as Nahida kneels on the edge of the Grand Sage’s chair to watch the plans and notes being sketched out and written over anew with every reiteration of plan and timetable.

    Nahida thinks that maybe she is getting the hang of this Archon thing.

    Finally.

    -

    In the process of rebuilding Sumeru and the Akademiya, Nahida builds a life.

    Summary

    “You’re the straight brother.”

    “Oh?” Well that’s news to Jason, a very queer individual with a boyfriend.

    However, he apparently doesn't have a way to come out to his family. And he has to find one soon because said boyfriend is finding it very interesting that Dick keeps sending him t-shirts that say 'ALLY.'
