    Summary

    It is becoming easier, almost, to adjust to the new way of life. He has switched to using his left hand to cast the spell, and the effects are creeping further and further up his left arm with each passing day, even if they vanish by the next morning.

    But that is an understandable price to pay. A reasonable price, if it keeps everyone else safe. It doesn’t matter, really, if he has started to find more and more lacerations from stray waves of shadow each morning as he lies in his untouched bed. It doesn’t matter that the pupils of his eyes, when he gazes into the reflective glass of the captain’s desk, are starting to disappear entirely. Nor that he will sometimes start at the faint feeling of fingers threading around his neck, tracing the line of his cheek.

    “Praesidio. Praesidio, fortier defendebant, defendebant splendide...”

    The Rocks family is safe. Any price is worth that.

    Summary

    It starts with quiet good mornings and stilted how are yous, awkward invitations to brunch in the gardens and hesitant offers for yet another tour around the castle. They orbit each other so carefully, mindful not to start another war and desperate to find the kind of peace that they both desperately crave.

    Ruby and Saccharina in Castle Candy, trying to figure out how to be sisters.

    Summary

    “I would have freed you soon enough,” the so-called Sovereign Ruler of Candia says cheerfully, smiling at the House of Rocks as they kneel on the ground before her. 

    Oh, so she's freeing and imprisoning people already. What a perfect leader, Jet thinks, leaning against the cavern wall, her arms crossed as she stares down the sorceress thunderously. And I was just starting to enjoy the idea of ruling Candia, too.

    Not for the first time today, she is more than a little bit pissed that she's no longer alive to say these things out loud.

    Summary

    Absently, Ruby is aware of Saccharina moving almost cautiously towards her—the way one might approach a wild animal. Ruby doesn’t even have it in her to send all of her anger and hate Saccharina’s way right now. She doesn’t know how to even begin to explain what she is feeling in this moment, other than the fact that she is dealing with an absence so loud that she doesn’t think she can even speak. Saccharina must intuit this, somehow.

    (In the small part of her brain that isn’t overwhelmed by loss, Ruby considers that Saccharina, a girl that grew up alone, without a castle or her family, might actually know a thing or two about loss).

    Summary

    “I thought you were my intern,” Tony says.

    “Well, yeah, but it’s not like official or anything,” Peter reasons. “I can’t exactly put Spider-Man on my resume. Miss Potts had me fill out paperwork and everything.”

    “Oh, well—paperwork. Very fancy. And what exactly are you doing for this ‘official internship’?” Tony asks, pouring himself a much needed cup of coffee.

    “Um, she has me doing some marketing stuff.”

    Tony spins around, sloshing coffee everywhere, his eyebrows shooting upward. “Marketing?
