    Summary

    Solya finds himself at loose ends after the events of canon, and turns to the time-honoured diversions of reconnecting with an old ex, goading his arch-rival, and matchmaking his arch-rival’s ex (not necessarily in that order). Oh, and protecting the king, of course.

    Summary

    For many trees, there is no death; there is growing, and there is what comes after growing. A tree that falls in the forest sprouts new life from its body as it lies, crumbling into leaf and mould. A tree that falls to corruption may send forth shoots year after year, decade after decade, waiting until there is one shoot that is strong enough, wise enough, to resist that corruption and grow tall. Unless they fall to axe and saw, a tree may live forever. So Wood-Queens and their people do not die. They sleep, and they forget. They are patient. All things come to fruitfulness in time, and what is time, to a tree?

    Kasia suffers intensely throughout Uprooted; this is her path back to herself.

    Summary

    There was a room, and a pallet inside it; a small torch burned low in a socket upon the wall. A man lay upon the cot, his face bruised and battered, his hands curled against his chest bloody, and Laurence did not know him.

    Or, a little part of Blood of Tyrants goes differently.

    Summary

    "Vigorously faithful in their pairings are magpies;
    Boldly so are quails.
    This woman is all vicious,
    And I regard her as marchioness."

    Or: Mulan gets found out earlier, though in fairly similar circumstances. Shang proposes a different future for them.
