    Summary

    “Your magic is. . . confusing. Messy, honestly.” He reluctantly met my unwavering gaze, unwilling to talk to the wall behind me any longer. “You tend to pour out more power than is good for you when deep in a spell.” His descriptions were quick, like his mind couldn’t stand to linger on me long. “It feels cool to the touch. Smells like lemon and thyme. Feels like snowfall.”

    “It is unpleasant to you.”

    He shook his head fervently. “Not entirely. When we—” he made a choked sound when I let a tendril of my magic brush against him. There was no spell involved, though I kept a thin line of power brushing against him through willpower alone. “When we worked together,” he started again, “I’ve never felt so powerful. So alive. Your words and mine shaping a single spell, it’s extraordinary. And it shouldn’t be possible with someone as unskilled in magic as you are.”

    Summary

    “An heir?”

    Alina hacks up half her tea, spoiling one of her finer dressing gowns. She’s too busy dabbing at the mess with napkins, cheeks warm, to notice the bemused look her husband gives over the top of the newspaper from where he sat reading across the breakfast table.

    She quickly learns he isn’t joking.

     

    (Or: Aleksander Morozova asks his wife for a baby, and she doesn't find herself opposed to the idea.)

    Summary

    ‘First time docking in Hogsmeade?’ Hermione called out, a peace offering of sorts. 

    The silver-eyed pirate gave her a shark-like smile and took a few steps closer.

    ‘We are new to the island, yes,’ he agreed. ‘What is it in our countenance that gives us away?’

    ‘Nothing in your countenance, sir,’ Hermione taunted him. ‘But I know every corsair that passes through these waters, and eyes like yours are ones I’d never forget.’

    Summary

    “I suppose the successful navigation of court life would resemble arcane scheming to you.” Despite the words, Solya’s tone was almost teasing.

    “I have better things to waste my time on,” Agnieszka said loftily.

    Seven years on, Agnieszka and Sarkan visit Kralia for the winter.
