    Summary

    A series of dribbles on locations where Jess opens bookshops after Sword and Pen. There will be some very brief, very vague mentions of canon traumas and troubles, but nothing graphic. No room for that in 50 words! Let's call this highly experimental. Can I write things this short? We shall see!

    2. Spain
    3. Rome
    4. Philadelphia
    5. Sea Journey
    6. Oxford
    7. Castle Raby

    Summary

    In Smoke and Iron canon, Khalila persuades Santi's good sense to overcome his blind fury over Dario's part in Wolfe's re-imprisonment.

    Summary

    For as long as he could remember, Wolfe had only one goal: graduate from postulant training and become a Scholar. Nowhere in his plans was an Italian boy with beautiful brown eyes and a dimpled smile.

    A Great Library prequel set during Wolfe and Santi’s time as postulants.

    Summary

    Several years after the Great Library's renewal, Wolfe and Santi take a vacation to Rome. Wolfe has had time to recover from his traumatic imprisonment there, and he's ready to reclaim it as a place for happy memories again. Wolfe and Santi deserve a nice, happy vacation, and they are getting it.

    There will be a couple vague references to Wolfe's trauma, but no details about the things that happened in the prison. Labeling those just to be safe. A couple drabbles around the middle will be on the sexier side, and will be marked as such. The rest are pure fluff.

    Contents:
    1. Antique: The Forum (trauma reference)
    2. Invention: Shopping
    3. Fashion: A Night Out
    4. Bare Skin: Back at the Hotel
    5. Leather: In the Bedroom (sexual content, kink)
    6. Lace: In bed (sexual content)
    7. Beach: Ostia (scars mentioned)
    8. Grass: Palatine Hill
    9. Rain: Villa Borghese
