    Summary

    After two years of careful planning, Obi-Wan makes the decision to Fall. It saves the galaxy.
    Or,
    Obi-Wan is told that there is a Sith controlling the Senate. If there is one thing Obi-Wan has spent his life pursuing, it is the truth. So he opens his ears, and his eyes.
    He becomes a High General, yes, and The Negotiator, but there is more.
    He becomes a whisper collector, a shadow follower, an echo creator. What is the difference between negotiating and manipulating?
    He is the rebellion, even if there is no true word for it yet.
    Palpatine may think he is the puppeteer, but there's always a bigger fish, and this fish has friends.

    Summary

    Jungkook was a pawn that his boss could move as he pleased. For the past nine months, he had been working for Kim Taehyung: a calm, cold but terribly dangerous man. Kim Taehyung had built an empire in the shadow world. He had built a giant chessboard on which he was the King. His supremacy was the most important of all.

    And Jungkook was completely devoted to him, even when Taehyung's crown began to wobble, about to fall off.

    "At your command, sir."

    Summary

    Bellamy expected Nakara to be cold, he expected it to be a frozen wasteland- what he didn't expect was to find that despite all odds, people had made it their home.

    It gives him hope that maybe not all is lost.

    And it gives him hope that maybe he and Clarke will find a home together.

    Summary

    Letters had always seemed more personal to Spencer. There was something about seeing another persons penmanship that made him feel more connected to the person writing the letter than a text did. Maybe it was the fact he could see the pressure in the pen or the parts that they rushed that made him understand more. And so, signing up to a pen pal service just made sense.

    Talking was difficult for Elizabeth. She never wanted to say the wrong thing or make herself seem like a fool. She did however want to try something new. So, when encouraged by her friend to sign up to the pen pal service the post office is offering, she gives it a try.

    Summary

    On a cold winter's night when snow drifts gently past the frosted windows, Florence and Anatoly sit on the sofa in the front room. A fire crackles in the fireplace. A fleece blanket drapes across their laps, red and velvety and rich. Two glasses of wine sit on the table, one on either side of the chess board that lies between them. 

    They are not playing against each other. Rather, they are putting their brains together, working on a shared problem.

    Summary

    “I have dealt with numerous pretentious, presumptuous people like you. I was hoping your conceited temper wouldn’t equate to you being an arse but, unfortunately, that does not seem to be the case. Truthfully, what I’m the most upset about isn’t the fact that you felt like you had the right to spoil my fun because you’ve become jaded. It’s the fact that you just assumed things of me, judged me while you haven’t even taken the time to know me!”

    “And do you?”

    “Do what?”

    “Do you know yourself, Hoseok?”

     

    ———

     

    Jung Hoseok, newly admitted fourth-year student at the prestigious and selective IRIS, had always lived his life under the rules his parents imposed.

    Kim Namjoon doesn't seem to like Hoseok very much, which shouldn't bug him as much as it did.

    What's to happen when they have to work on an assignment together and try to understand the other just a bit better?

    Summary

    Nightmare lost everything. Everyone left him the moment he showed weakness, even though that was when he needed them the most.

    Killer stayed. Killer wouldn't leave him. Killer would always be by his side. He had sworn to do it.

    So Nightmares figures were gone except for the king and queen, had either defected to the opposing side or simply left. Dream clearly had the upper hand in this game.

    But nobody expected outside interference. The only question was which side they swear their loyalty to. Will it be the warm, intense sun or the cool, gentle moon?

    Summary

    "Oli niin kylmä, että kyyneleet tuntuivat jäätyvän Hermionen poskille. Hänen hengityksensä huurusi. Tai ehkä se oli hänen sielunsa, jota ankeuttaja imi ahnaasti itseensä. Hermione tunsi olonsa oudon levolliseksi. Ankeuttajan suudelma, hän ajatteli huvittuneena. Niin kaunis sana jollekin niin hirvittävälle asialle."
