    Summary

    The first time Aphrodite appears in his workshop, Grantaire thinks he must be hallucinating.

    Life does not change very often, for the deathless gods.

    But Enjolras is quickly running out of places to hide from his relentless suitors. There is about one place where no one is likely to look for the god of love and beauty – the heart of Aetna, where the smithing god lives. Except Grantaire is not quite sure what Enjolras would ever be doing in a burning-hot furnace, watching him work day in, day out. And it might just turn out that despite their disagreements, they get along better than expected.

    Even the Fates know that this changes everything.

    Summary

    Bruce doesn’t like to credit one thing for saving his life, but if he did, it would be Haly’s Circus that Friday night in September, just as summer was beginning to die.

    (He'll always be a sucker for kids with sad eyes, no parents, and more fight than the world knows what to do with.)

     

    Or: in a universe where superheroes don't exist, Bruce Wayne finds his family.

    Summary

    Everyone said that Guanghong was born with fire in his veins. As a child, he could sense it, his magical gift growing inside of him and taking hold of him. But it wasn’t until the day Guanghong set his grandmother’s silk folding screen ablaze by accident, just by looking at it, that his parents hired a tutor for him—a retired war mage who was gruff but kind to the bewildered five-year-old, and who knew just what to do to teach him to control his power.

    Still, it took Guanghong several more years to realize that not all mages felt as he did. As though there were things constantly seething beneath his skin, aching to burst forth.
