    Summary

    Jon's grown up a bit coddled, but more self-aware than most when it comes to his own failings. He wants to believe it's a sign of greater things. The boys you liked in school are too often the same ones that history books forget.

    Russell is one of those. He's got a lazy eye and lazier smile. Then he starts talking and it's all manic energy, one crazy story after the next, words tripping over each other like his two clumsy feet.
     

    In which Jon and Russell are terrible at communicating, and Humphrey Ker is a gentle knight in shining armor.

    Summary

    If one thing can be said about Yamada Hizashi, it’s that he never fails to surprise. After all, until yesterday’s release of 何SOON, music lovers across the country believed that Yamada could not produce an album worse than SAY HEY. Yamada’s sheer arrogance oozes from every lyric, which is nearly as grating as the melodies themselves, a combination of the most tiresome pop renditions and –

    Hizashi tears the magazine in half.

    Summary

    Prisoner of Azkaban AU: After the Gryffindor-Hufflepuff Quidditch match, Harry finds himself striking up two unlikely friendships. The first is with Hufflepuff's captain, Cedric Diggory. The second is with the Grim. You know, that canine specter of Death that's been trying to kill him. Between that and learning the Patronus Charm, surviving Sirius Black, passing his classes, training for the Quidditch House Cup, trying to figure out why Professor Lupin treats him so strangely, helping Hermione fight for werewolf rights, and more, Harry seems to be in for yet another busy year at Hogwarts.

    (Tl;dr: an alternate canon for POA, featuring crushes on handsome Hufflepuffs and canine Marauder dads.)

    Summary

    “You?! You, concubine to the emperor of Nilfgaard?!”

    Iorveth hissed and blazed in disbelief at his childhood friend and a shiver rippled through Ciaran’s slender frame as a gust of wind blew in a flurry of snow .

    As part of their triple-damned accord with Nilfgaard, they’d been granted leave to offer the emperor a concubine for his harem — a sign of favour, if one could believe it. But Iorveth didn’t see why that should mean Ciaran had to volunteer. Ciaran, who’d been a loyal Scoia’tael lieutenant and done so much, given so much, lost so much for their cause.

    Never!

    Summary

    It’s as old a tale as the death and rebirth of the sky: the unfaithful uncle who plots against his brother’s son. But as Temin stares up at him, Savadai knows with steadfast certainty that he would give his life for this child if the gods asked it of him.

    He does not expect that one day they will face each other down from opposite ends of a battlefield. There are many things he does not expect.

    Summary

    Morvran, naturally, had his own reasons for wanting to be invited into Emhyr’s bed. He was ambitious, and clever, and cunning. While he undoubtedly held out hope that the missing princess would materialise one day, he was not about to pin all his future plans on a woman he’d never seen who might well ultimately refuse him.

    Emhyr and Morvran both want something from each other, and they're both willing to go to great lengths to get it. So great, indeed, that they may well stumble onto more than they bargained for.

    Summary

    He’s a slim, too-pretty boy of twenty, and the men of this particular underworld talk about him as though he’s an open flame, a sparking engine near a pool of gasoline: volatile, and not to be handled. Kid’s got balls of sheer fucking steel, Damen’s contact said.

    Which must be true, because having just lost a race against Damen for pink slips, Laurent looks him straight in the eye and says, “Double or nothing?” in a voice like vodka poured straight from the freezer.

    Summary

    “It’s called cavorting with the enemy,” Scipio told his fellow envoys. “We get close to Hannibal, Antiochus becomes suspicious of him, they fall out, we defeat the lot of them and go home rich.”

    Laelius made a noncommittal noise. “You sure that’s the only reason you want to get close to Hannibal?”

    “I,” said Scipio, “have no idea what you’re talking about.”

    Scipio goes to Ephesus on a diplomatic mission, and gets more than he bargained for.

    Summary

    Life in the Nova Corps meant odd hours and often random meal times, but this suited Garthan, most days. It meant that Errin's stall was quiet whenever he swung by, save for the odd tourist or two, and Errin knew better than to try small talk on an off-hours Corpsman trying to have a good meal in a bit of peace before going back on the beat.

    Today, Garthan made it midway through the bowl before his perfect daily moment of peace was ruined by a tourist. Off-worlders were common on Xandar: the planet was an interstellar trading hub, after all, with free trade agreements signed with most intergalactic civs, but years in the Corps had given Garthan a healthy understanding of trouble, and this tourist positively reeked of it.
