They’re remarkably gifted, the three Hawke children. That, at least, is what all of the neighbours say. Bethany, from the time that she was born, had been one of the most skilled magic-users in Ferelden, and so sweet that no one dared report her to anyone who might do her harm. Carver could wrestle a great bear into submission (although she’d never tell him as much for fear that his head wouldn’t fit into one of those silly little helmets the Grey Wardens are made to wear). And Marian—
Apart from being an above-average mage and having a phenomenal arse, Marian Hawke sees ghosts.
(Fenris just happens to be one of them)
B. WALDORF, the card says, embossed in silver print, and Dan commits that to memory. He’ll probably never see her again, but even so, B. WALDORF etches a space in his brain ten times larger than any five-foot-two socialite should be able to.
He’s surprisingly okay with that.
Dan is a bartender and Blair is the obnoxiously rich customer who keeps coming in to see him and it's casual, okay, it definitely doesn't mean she's in love.)

She likes him. She doesn’t like New York but she could make a life here, a life with chess in the morning and curling up on the floor at night, reading books about strategy and making each other laugh. Once the thought comes it lingers, sticks, positioning itself neatly between her Alekhine and her Latvian as if it has been there all along. It fucking terrifies her. She’s never known anything like it.
He grins, crooked and sweet, and turns his back to fetch the pot of coffee. Adjournment. The minute he turns to face her they’ll pick right up where they left off.

And Thursday will be the end of it, Enola is sure. After all, he’s just a boy. How complicated can he be?
(Mistake number four: nobody is just anything.
Enola has forgotten to expect the unexpected.)
or: Enola works at a bookstore and Tekwy brings her flowers and there's no symbolism here at all, okay, the flowers don't have any hidden meanings.

Katara and Zuko meet at a wedding.
(She tries her hardest not to think about the fact that somehow, for some impossible to define reason, this seems to be her infinity.
She tries her hardest not to think about anything other than him.)
