    Summary

    In Part One, beginning at Marlas, Auguste lives and takes Damen hostage. The immediate attraction between them is complicated by the presence of Laurent and Nikandros, and leads to a romp across the high seas to the den of thieves, pirates and whores that is the island of Paradiso. Our heroes, in various disguises from Pets to islanders, experience treachery, kidnapping, and the discovery of a long lost relative. Along the way, Auguste yearns for Damen, Damen reconciles with Nik, Laurent has his first crush and learns he is much more than a bookish boy.

    Part Two moves ahead four years. The landscape will start in Paradiso, move on to Marlas, Ios and Arles and conclude in the dangerous court of the Vaskian Empress. This is a tale of adventure, intrigue and heroics, with side dishes of pining and sweet slow burns.

    Summary

    Auguste looked at his little brother. Laurent was thirteen and freshly presented as an Omega. The life of the second prince would certainly become a lot more difficult in the palace. Auguste sighed. Nobody seemed to understand that Laurent was more than the spare prince or, now, the bargaining chip for their father to secure peace with Akielos.

    In which Laurent presents as an Omega and his father arranges the marriage to the Akielon crown prince.

    The author writes it in the middle of the night and has no idea where this story is going. Good luck xD

    Summary

    Laurent wakes screaming. He’s dying. He must be. It’s the only explanation he has for the utter agony, confusion and terror that he feels. His brain is splitting itself open, bits of it strewn across space and time. He’s twenty one, in Arles, finally crowned. He’s fourteen, at Chastillon, on his knees for his uncle. He’s twenty, in Ios, watching a blade sink into Damen’s side. He’s sixteen, all alone, dreaming of revenge.

    Last night Laurent had thrust his arm at Damen, “attend me,” he had commanded, as if Damen weren’t a king in his own right. Last night, Uncle had sat on his bed, played chess with him. “I will always have time for you,” he had reassured Laurent, “even though Auguste has outgrown you.”

    Laurent leans to the side and vomits, violently. His fingers shake as he pushes his hair back, slowly, the room spins into focus. His hair is shorter than he remembers, Damen likes it long. His hair is exactly the same, cut by his nursemaid once a month.

    He is thirteen, at Marlas, and he knows everything.

    Summary

    Prince Damianos of Akielos is embarking on a trip to Vere. But it isn’t the promise of peace or the chance to rekindle his friendship with king Auguste that draws him.

    It’s tales of a monstrous Wolf who hunts at night, and the number of victims which are quickly piling up.

    It’s the reward offered by Auguste, so desperate for the carnage to end that he’ll give anything to the one who kills it.

    It’s a challenge from his father, who says whichever of his sons reclaims Defleur from the Veretians will be named his heir.

    And soon, it’s Auguste’s mysterious younger brother, cold and beautiful, who Damen suspects knows more about the Wolf than he’s letting on.

    Summary

    Laurent is a cold, young businessman working for Arles Publishing and the adoptive father of Nicaise, a problem student at Chastillon Academy, where Damen is his teacher. Damen is shocked to learn at a New Years party thrown by Akeilon Publishing that cold, cruel Laurent is actually Lo--his best friend Auguste's sweet, shy baby brother whom he has not seen since childhood.

    Summary

    Laurent doesn't or couldn't believe that his Uncle would do that to him. Would do THIS to him. They were family, right? He knew he was wrong because, at that very second, minute, he was being sent to Akielos, his countries enemy. Why he had no idea why, but he knew one thing in certainty. His life was about to take the most drastic change in six years, since Marlas. Was he prepared for it?

    Summary

    In the same world that we know, all morphed differently, two brothers never knew family betrayal and war, but they still knew their royal duties.
    This is their story, growing up a little too close to comfort and then some. And it's the story of how Damianos of Akielos came into their lives all the same, but differently.

    According to their mother, Laurent was a little treasure of a boy. According to their father, Laurent was composed and malleable. Laurent was all of this, of course. He was also, unfortunately, a nightmare.

    Summary

    “You cannot mean to tell me you would trust my brother on your throne with your son. And as it were, I am not in the market of selling my only living relative.”

    “Ah,” Theomedes said. “But you misunderstand me. Your blood will never sit on my throne. I would never let your brother marry my heir. I have two sons.”

    ***

    A royal death during battle was a sign. Years later, Laurent’s features soft with sleep beside Damen, he would think of that as well. He would pull Laurent closer, face buried in the crook of his shoulder and breathing in his omega’s scent mixed with his own. He would think about how their destinies had intertwined that day at Marlas and the world had changed for the both of them.

    Summary

    Holidays with the DeVeres were always, in one word, chaotic. This year alone, Aleron — four years retired from his beloved company — was still obsessed with work, Hennike was keeping up with her steady diet of Kemptian gossip and chardonnay, Auguste was preparing to become a father when he still didn't know how to quite take care of himself, and Laurent? Laurent simply wanted to survive it all as unnoticed as possible.

    Then Damen happened, and he wanted so much more.

    Summary

    "Without moving, Laurent spoke. “I wonder how long it takes for a portrait to become something different than its subject,” he said quietly. Damen wondered if this was a question he was truly meant to answer."

    It's the 1890s and Damen is hired to paint Laurent's portrait. A fic with guilt, ruin, and love.

    Summary

    This is my version of what happened at Marlas before the books. Since there's no official statement or story I decided to make my own. I also want to make known that this story is from my own AU of the books and so they will be magic involved. Anyway, I do hope you enjoy it.

    Summary

    “I thought that we should have a traditional Veretian wedding. That way you’ll always have a memory of Vere whilst we’re in Ios.”

    Damen wasn’t sure what he’d expected, but Laurent turning bright pink hadn’t been high on his list. He couldn’t tell if he was nervous or angry. Finally, he watched as Laurent struggled to gather himself.

    “I'm just surprised at the suggestion. You do know what will be expected of us, don’t you?” Laurent replied, searching Damen’s face for any sign of embarrassment

    "Of course" Damen said, lying.

    a.k.a. Five times Damen definitely DOES NOT know what happens in a Veretian Wedding and one time he very definitely does

    Summary

    If things would have gone the way they were supposed to, Damen and Laurent would have never met. But things didn't go the way they were supposed to, not at all, and their meeting ended up being the equivalent of skydiving with a malfunctioning parachute. Damen tried not to complain. After all, he was now living his dream; he was travelling with his best friend without having to make sure their "I"s were dotted and their "T"s crossed. And, sure, Laurent was difficult to work with, to work for, but he was also great to look at and they made it work well as long as they were anywhere but in Paris. But when Laurent's past begins to cause present-day problems, Damen finds out those difficulties Laurent constantly displays were a bit more warranted than he could have ever imagined. And Laurent? Laurent finds out the truth -- and finds out how to smile.
