    Summary

    “They are quite the sight, aren’t they?” Adrienne says, sitting down next to him on the log by the fire, offering him the eau de vie once more.

    “What are you talking about?” he says, feeling caught out. The bottle is half-empty already, and he does his part by taking a long drink so he doesn’t have to look at her for a while.

    “Those two,” she says, pointing her chin at Nicolas and Joseph, who are huddled together with their backs against the wide trunk of an ancient olive tree. “You were staring.”

    Summary

    The novelty has worn off, of course, but it’s not the novelty that keeps anybody coming back, anyway. Novelty never sustains anything.

    In which some people are still laying low in Athens, but now some of them are trying to flirt.
    (This is a loose sequel to "An eagle's old age, a sparrow's youth" but it's pretty self-explanatory.)

    Summary

    Derek's been choking on the smoke and ash of his family's murder for years now. It consumes every part of him, influences all that he is. He knows that he'll never be free of it, that nothing will ever grant him the peace he so desperately craves.

    All he wants is to feel safe, to be loved and to love in return, but he knows that's impossible.

    Until, that is, he meets Stiles.

    Through ups and downs, past blood and pain, Stiles slowly gives Derek exactly what he's always desperately wanted and never believed he could have.

    Comfort. Care. A new Pack. And a dark, desperate kind of all consuming love.

    And once Derek has all of that within his grasp?

    Well he'll burn the world to ash to keep it.
