    Summary

    Irene is counting the seconds in her head. That’s how she knows that it takes forty-five seconds for everything to go to hell. Eugenides looks calm, poised, beautiful, and then on the first side-by-side jumping pass, he lands wrong on his right foot and goes down hard, dragging an audible groan from the audience. Eddis, ever the professional, lands beautifully and keeps going, which is why it takes another two seconds for her to realize that Eugenides isn’t getting up.

    -----

    Irene Attolia is a competitive pairs figure skater. Her rival, Eddis, has the most annoying partner in the world, and Irene decides that if the universe isn't going to do her a favor and get rid of Eugenides, then she's going to have to take matters into her own hands.

    Summary

    Galen thinks a good first step towards breaking Eugenides out of his self-imposed post-behanding isolation is to get him active on internet chatrooms under an anonymous handle. Irene thinks she might go mad if she keeps turning her dwindling choices and her past mistakes over and over in her head all alone, and maybe it’s time to use that anonymous internet chatroom handle she made for the sake of lurking online and gauging the Attolian populace’s problems for a new purpose: seeking random internet advice.

    It doesn’t take long for Gen and Irene to start a private message conversation, neither suspecting who the other is … nor for them to become each other’s main source of support when nightmares leave them awake in the dead of night.

    Summary

    Songbirds fluttering out of snatching hands. Her hope tied down by the past's guilt.
    Memories sweet like berry wine. His dreams soured by the present's fears.
    Harp strings snap and whip against palms. Her resolve cut by the future's grief.

    A night on the Peninsula, when fate waits for no-one.

    Summary

    Costis had learned to read Kamet fairly well during their trek across the Mede Empire. You did, when you spent day and night after day and night alone with one person, and particularly when you fell in love with them. And Kamet was not entirely happy in Roa.

    Costis comes up with a little surprise for Kamet.

    Summary

    Always written off as a by-product of her father's gallivanting, Irene finds life turned upside down when he informs her that:

    1) He is infertile;
    2) She does not and will never have any siblings, and;
    3) Oh, he's the crown prince to a kingdom in the Little Peninsula and Irene is now second in line for the throne.

    Somehow, she now has to juggle her newfound royal responsibilities with her changing friendship with Helen, her fruitless crush on Nahuseresh, and whatever it is that Eugenides gets up to when he disappears for days at a time. A Princess Diaries-inspired High School AU.

    Summary

    They were inseparable when they were children together, but the death of the lord of Attolia and Middensea tore them apart. Irene grew cold and stony in her widowhood, Helen grew up feeding a fury she could barely keep contained, Sophos became trapped between power and responsibility and Gen--Gen was just gone. Years after the murder of Irene's husband, however, something changes that could bring them back together again.

    As long as Irene can figure out--what do you say to someone who lost everything for you?

    Summary

    He maintains his composure, but flushes a little, fiddling with the cup. “I believe she has not had a lover before, and I was told that…that it doesn’t need to hurt, the first time, though it often does.” He finishes his wine. “I have, uh. Prayed for it to be so, but there are some things you have to learn from other people.”
