    Summary

    A calculative Inaho understands the pain and torture Slaine went through, then calculates again how many years Slaine must spend in prison for his crimes. After those years pass, he makes an escape plan and sets Slaine free. Slaine lives isolated and happy in a ranch house, working with and healing abused horses.

    One day, Inaho gets very sick because of his eye. He abandons everything and goes to Slaine, in order to prevent Yuki and his friends from witnessing his progressive illness, and live his last moments in quietness and anonymity…

    Summary

    He feels protected, cared for. As if Inaho has been hugging him for centuries.

    Summary

    During his recovery after the loss of his eye, Inaho receives one day mysterious messages on his tablet from a person that claims to be his future self: In the future, Slaine Troyard’s death will set off the most devastating war between Earth and Mars. Inaho must prevent this.

    (This is the story of two different Inahos in two different timelines.

    The older Inaho keeps visiting a miserable Slaine and eventually struggles with his feelings, his duty, and the political instabilities that arise between Mars and Earth.

    The younger Inaho must stop Slaine Troyard from rising within the ranks of Martian nobility. Among the way, he’ll understand what it means to have somebody you want to protect at all costs.)

    Summary

    The day he meets Slaine for the first time, the sky is a perfect blue. His life is empty. Science is his steady companion, logic is the air he breathes. The events that occurred at the orphanage have already prearranged every phase of his life—until the day Slaine arrives.

    Slaine has the shining eyes of a demon from those old, haunting legends, stories already buried within the memories of his childhood.

    *

    “Our youth” Slaine says, “is gone.”

    Summary

    The fic where Inaho is the one to capture and imprison Slaine for life. But as the years go by and he gets to know Slaine, and sees how life in prison has weakened Slaine to a state of malnourishment and mental illness, he starts to question his own logic and judgement. Until Slaine, one day, makes the most unusual request; he wants to listen to a story he claims Inaho knows as good as he knows life, a story about a king and a wild creature who became a person under the care of a goddess, a story about sacrifice, war, death and love.

    Soon, the boundaries of myth and reality start to merge…and Inaho finds himself questioning his own life, his choices, and most importantly, the punishment he chose for his greatest enemy, Slaine Troyard.

    Summary

    “Your rockets, reaching higher and higher, in the loneliest of journeys.” Slaine whispers so quietly, Inaho has to press the headset closer to his ear to understand him. “Is that my destiny, Inaho? Is that what will become of my life?”

    *

    Summary

    ‘It’s not a bat, can’t you see?’ Slaine’s throat burns to say, then. ‘It’s a black albatross, it’s the most legendary of all birds, Kaizuka-kun! It has a wingspan larger than our heights combined, can you imagine? And it’s disastrous to harm or kill an albatross...people who harmed them were punished from fate, they were severely punished for it.’

    He wants to speak. He doesn’t.
