  2. Summary

    "Over the years, the Hasetsu Inn, run by the Katsuki family, has somehow become a second home to a bevy of different mages from across the land. They come and go as their callings require them, but all of them have found somehow that once you’ve stayed at the inn, you never really leave."

    Or: the one where Yuuri's family runs a Magical Inn in a Dime-a-Dozen Fantasy Village(TM), where lots of silly things happen (and many feelingsful things too).

  3. Summary

    Sometimes that thought is terrifying, that another human being could be both so unnoticed and so necessary, so much like the wind he was named for. Other times, it is all the comfort she’ll allow herself—that he is here, and there is no one else who will let her send him to all the places she cannot go, no one else to whom she can speak of all the things she should not speak.

    Or: Kaze x Azura triptych, pre-game to post-game, Conquest timeline.

    Summary

    The first thing Dorothea notices about the mistress of the house is that she is no older than Dorothea herself. Perhaps younger, even. The bracelets on her arm are but plain bronzed bands, and her hair is braided with red ribbons; a simple style, the kind that needs no assistance from anyone else. Yet, though she wears cotton and her feet are bare, she walks as if upon a bolt of silk. She moves like a song on the air.

    Most of all, as Primrose descends the stairs and Dorothea sees the set of her mouth, the stubborn tilt to her chin, she is certain: this is a woman who was told she was pretty as a girl. Over and over and over again till all the sweetness got burnt out of it.

    In which Dorothea meets a dancer in the desert, and Primrose hears a story from across the sea.

    Summary

    “You have enough who are trustworthy here to counsel you on manners of state,” Edward said, “but I—I feel I am called elsewhere.”

    Beverly, his queen and his friend, looked at him then with a bittersweet understanding. “I would not deny you your request,” she said. “But neither am I so keen on letting you go alone.”

    “Oh, but he shall not be alone.” Richard had vaulted to his feet and strolled over, and now he clapped a heavy hand on Edward’s shoulder. “I’m coming with you,” he said.

    Summary

    She reaches to pull down her cap, just as she used to on the streets. A motion she still makes without thinking before she goes to face the world. But today, she pauses. Steals another glance at herself, then pushes her cap up again, meets her own gaze in dirty glass. She has not come all this way to hide her face, has she now?

    In which Dorothea finds a place for herself, and her song.
