    Summary

    “Spice and silk and trade and cloth. These are the things one goes to war over, but in my heart of hearts, I know they are not worth it.”
    - quoted from a letter penned by the Crown Prince to his lover, at the end of the Southern War

    *

    “It’s got ears,” says the man that’s choking him. Hoseok. “Look, look. It’s got - like a cat.”

    “Let me-” Yoongi wheezes, phlegm in the back of his throat, stars in his eyes, “Let me-”

    “So Jungyoo wasn’t lying.”

    Hoseok pushes harder. Yoongi realises faintly that he isn’t even touching the ground; Hoseok is holding him against the wall, Yoongi’s feet dangling uselessly a foot from the floor. “Why are you here?”

    “He’s got the house markings,” Seokjin stretches over Hoseok’s shoulder and presses a thumb to the centre of Yoongi’s forehead, smearing the makeup there. The warpaint. “Maybe-”

    “But why’s he got ears?”

    Yoongi claws ever-more desperately. (Oh, if Jeongguk could see him now - he’d be a disgrace.)

    “Hoseok-ah, I think you’re choking it.”

    Summary

    “If you’re a witch that works with plants, then why are all of yours dead? That can’t be good for business.”

    The room dims again, and Jimin lifts a hand to flip off the ceiling. Taehyung knows he’s sad and that’s why the shop darkens and he shouldn’t find it funny—but he can’t help it. Because this is ridiculous. The good kind of ridiculous. The amazing kind.

     

    (Or: Taehyung has a green thumb, Jimin runs a magical store, and Yoongi can kind of see dead people.)

    Summary

    Settling into Seniors isn’t hard for a champion like Shoma. What’s hard is watching people around him fall away, choosing what to let go, and learning to navigate life around inexplicable jackasses, like his childhood hero Yuzuru Hanyu.

    The latter is a slightly bigger problem than others.

    Summary

    When colour starts disappearing from towns and cities across the globe, The Foundation For The Preservation Of Colours is set up, bringing together some of the world’s most creative minds and most talented magicians in the hope of ending the spread of the Grey Zones and defeating the strange, shadowy figures who seem to be responsible. Yuzuru Hanyu is by far the most powerful of all the Foundation’s magical recruits, and most people expect him to save the world. But Shoma doesn’t have time to speculate about that. He’s too busy trying to figure out where it is the Foundation’s famed prodigy is sneaking off to every night - that, and trying to keep the extent of his own powers under wraps.

    Or: An often fluffy, magical AU in which Yuzuru and Shoma sneak out every night and try to pretend the weight of the world isn’t resting on their shoulders.

    Summary

    Shoma is a spy with a gun, Yuzuru is a spy without a sense of self preservation, and everything goes to hell in a matter of seconds. He really doesn't want to know when his life became one big Bond movie, but Shoma supposes it started with a glass of cognac in the middle of Russia's biggest casino.

    (Or, a night at the casino turns into a car chase across St. Petersburg.)
