    I am bookmarking this not because I am certain I have read it and can recommend it, but because I THINK I've read it, and if it is what I think it is, I SHOULD have bookmarked it.

    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    RUN DO NOT WALK if you like space princes, if you like people trying to make their peace with arranged marriages and other sorts of royal family obligations, if you love characters who talk adorably too much, if you love characters who talk adorably too little, if you love folks trying to go straight after lives of crime... oh my god just READ IT. Bujold fans? READ IT. Fans of _The Goblin Emperor_? JUST READ IT. Seriously, though, read this.

    Oh heavens, you need this. It's sad in spots but also UNBEARABLY FUNNY. Oh, would that so many fictional characters had their own Captain Awkward.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    HOLY FRICKIN SMOKES so don't read this if you aren't ready for massive feels about a bunch of parallels between these two settings. Particularly about the experience of people who have been utterly broken by traumatic events finding that no, you cannot go back, but that you can build forward into something that is warm and beautiful.

    And seriously, fuck both Hydra and Anaander Mianaai.

    Summary

    “Remember what I said about internet trolls?”

    “Don’t feed the trolls.”

    “Exactly. Did I not say the same thing to Barnes?” Tony asked rhetorically. “Were those not my exact words? I could have sworn they were, and yet.”

    “Bucky’s feeding the trolls?”

    “He’s throwing a goddamn seven-course troll banquet. Every time someone on Twitter asks if your relationship announcement is real, he replies. Colorfully.”

    Steve opened his mouth to ask what “colorfully” meant, then caught the gleam in Tony’s eye and put two and two together. He blushed. Colorfully. “Oh.”

    (Steve and Bucky announce their relationship in a very dignified press conference. Bucky then replies to every goddamn tweet asking him to confirm it with a different dirty euphemism. Things escalate from there.)
