    Summary

    Jace steps closer to Addax, trying to look composed. They’ve been posing under the hot lights for nearly three hours, all told. Even Addax, who had seemed calm and self-assured in his individual headshots and with Tea and the Queen's Gambit, is fidgeting with the sleeve of his Diasporan military jacket. He glances at Jace, half-smiling, and says, "C'mon, Rethal, let's get this over with."

    Summary

    “You’re young,” Alex says bluntly. “Younger than me, even, and no one thought me any good until I’d proven myself in battle. And those of us who study the sword have many more opportunities to prove ourselves publicly--you lot are all shut away in your cloister, how would anyone even know?”

    “It’s not like they thought anything of me there either until the first Trials,” Thom says, a touch bitter. “I am so tired of proving myself.”

    “I would be too,” Alex says. “I’d look for something decisive. That’s not to say you have to do what Delia says, of course.”

    “You don’t seem to doubt me,” Thom says, something odd in his voice. He knocks his shoulder against Alex’s, carefully.

    Alex means to use Thom of Trebond to further his own plans. It doesn't turn out that way at all.

    Summary

    Amis House might not be the biggest student co-op, or the fanciest, but it's got something all its own. Specifically, smoke damage on the kitchen ceiling from that time Courfeyrac lit a political pamphlet on fire.

    In which there are secrets, pining, pancakes, and revelations, and sometimes the shortest distance between three points is not a triangle but a circle.
