    Summary

    Seminary student Matthias Helvar loses a bet that leads him to dancing in an amateur male strip show. Nina Zenik is an Army Officer home on leave who catches the act and wonders why the hottest dancer ran off so fast. Unfortunately for the pair, their mutual friends circle means they can't seem to stop running into one another.

    Belated entry to Helnik Week 2021. Prompt: Dancing.

    Updated Summary: Yes, it's a stupid title. I thought it'd be a much shorter story. A more accurate current summary is that Pastor Helvar and Captain Zenik have an incredibly awkward 'How We Met' story in this mid-20s coming of age saga that takes place between 2004-2006.

    Summary

    @jomiddlemarch wrote a war/pregnancy/Helnik drabble and very generously said I could expand upon it. Thank you! @sagiow helped me with the French, for which I say merci beaucoup! @theburnbarreljester beta-ed and encouraged and cajoled and gave me the blessed image of “oh no they have to have sex to stay undercover at a brothel” and from there it really just writes itself. Thanks for continuing to “yes and” my writing into existence and for the delightful chats about it. And check out the resistance moodboard by @mszenik on tumblr which is gorgeous and something I definitely stared at a lot while writing.

    Summary

    “It’s a tale not unlike ours - one of countries at war and a brave Fjerdan warrior who wanted to save his country from darkness. Of a Ravkan woman who was far from her home but determined to return.”

    “Hmmmm,” Matthias murmured and Nina saw the corner of his mouth turn up into a smile. She dropped her voice to a whisper and ran a thumb across his lips.

    “It’s the story of The Princess and the Barbarian.”
    ***
    As Matthias recovers from a gunshot wound, Nina tells him the story of the Princess and the Barbarian. He interrupts a lot as his Fjerdan sensibilities are bothered and the Ravkan propaganda gets to be unbearable.

    Thank you @theburnbarreljester for your fantastic ideas and suggestions that gave this story shape and for your timeless and wise counsel that canon is just a suggestion, that everyone, not just the Grisha at the Little Palace, wants to read about a barbarian stealing away a princess, and that the guiding aesthetic of this piece should be "Wow, look at his abs glistening in the moonlight."
