    Summary

    When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

    Summary

    Hannibal is out shopping when the small boy runs up to him and bites him on the hand.

    It is not a playful act. The child bites hard, and then he grinds his teeth in and holds on.

    There is for Hannibal a moment of outrage, in which he considers striking the child to knock him away. Hannibal’s face curls, for just a microsecond, into a snarl, and astonishingly he realizes that the boy, who is looking up at him with fearsome defiance, his jaws still locked around the side of his hand, has not missed this.

    Hannibal sets his face to communicate a shocked but stoic response to the assault, and this is what his father sees, when perhaps three seconds later he crouches next to the boy to coax him into loosening his hold.

     

    AKA, the one where Will is the single father of a troubled little boy, and Hannibal is enchanted by them both.

    Summary

    Bucky didn't want much. Just to keep his head down, to sell his flowers in peace, and to stay off Shield's radar. His life would have been a lot easier if his flowers weren't dead and if being a necromancer wasn't illegal, but easy or not, he was getting by. Steve didn't want much, either. He was happy working for Shield, he had good friends, and overall his life was going just about the way he wanted it. Problem was, being happy with your life was generally an invitation for fate to throw a spanner in the works—and in Steve's specific case, it was going to be a spanner named Bucky.

    (A love story about flowers, trust, and magic and the choices we make about doing what's right.)

    Summary

    Fairy tales need castles and curses and royalty and unrepentant bad guys. If you can find a dragon and an evil fairy and enchanted sleep, well, those are just bonuses. Not if you ask the poor bastards who have to live through them, of course. They'd prefer to have exactly none of it. But fairy tales never ask for permission; it's kind of their hallmark.

    The poor bastard of the moment was Prince Steven Grant of the House of Rogers. This time, however, things might not work out entirely in the fairy tale's favour, because the castle happened to be Prince Steven's best friend and, once fairy tales started twisting, you could never tell exactly where they'd stop.

    Summary

    “This is all good and well,” Percival tells the Goldsteins, “but what about the egg that will inevitably become an occamy that lives in my coat pocket?”

    Tina furrows her brow and puts on a stern scowl; she stares.

    “Mr. Graves doesn’t answer personal questions,” Queenie says seriously.

    - - -

    Six months later, Porpentina Goldstein frees Percival Graves from his prison. He recovers, he returns to work, and he learns how to cope and how to move on and how to let people back in after crippling betrayal. Then he meets Newt Scamander and he has to learn how to deal with an eccentric Brit who somehow worms his way into Percival's heart, one bright smile at a time.
