    Summary

    “Bruno!” Mirabel says as she runs up to him in the courtyard, and Bruno blinks rapidly and hopes she didn’t catch the glint of glowing green in his eyes, and hopes she won’t ask if she did.

    “Mirabel?” he says. “What’s wrong?”

    “Happy birthday!” she says, and holds out a brightly wrapped box tied shut with colorful yarn. Bruno . . . blinks, and forgets about the vision entirely.

    Summary

    Captain Arthur Pendragon has put together the best team of specialists that the SAS has ever seen, but when his superiors assign Lieutenant Merlin Emrys as his communications officer, Arthur does everything to make him feel unwelcome. Arthur's job is to protect and guide his team through dangerous missions, and he worries that he can't do that when the newest member has a mysterious background and acts suspicious when he thinks no one is looking.

    As their assignments become more dangerous, Merlin can't help but to use his magic to keep his team -- even his prat of a Captain -- safe from threats they couldn't possibly understand. But when they are sent on a undercover operation against a group of zealots intent on a magical apocalypse, Merlin needs to confront his fear of discovery and derision, and to finally trust his team with his secret.

    Arthur and Merlin rely on each other for more than the sake of their mission. The entire world is at stake. When they learn -- from dragons, no less -- that they are prophesied to restore the balance of magic to the world, they fight on regardless of the outcome, because duty, honour and loyalty is a far stronger driving force than destiny.

    Summary

    “Why do you wear that collar?” the witcher asks.

    Jaskier startles. He’s been fiddling with it, he realises, a nervous habit. He didn’t think the witcher had noticed, even though those golden eyes seem to spot most things.

    “It’s so people know what I am,” he says.

    “And what are you?” the witcher says. His tone has turned surprisingly gentle. Perhaps he can hear the misery in Jaskier’s voice.

    “Bound in service,” Jaskier explains. He tries on a smile. “It might not look like it, but I’m as much of a prisoner as you are.”

    Jaskier didn’t exactly plan to escape from his master alongside a terrifying witcher. But it might turn out to be one of his better decisions.

    Summary

    “He's slightly unhinged,” Shouto admits, “but I like that about him.”

    Midoriya flips over Bakugou, cackling evilly as he snags one of the grenades off his belt and flings it at an approaching Iida. Then Midoriya picks Bakugou up and lets out a feral scream as he throws him at Jirou. Aizawa sighs heavily but doesn’t stop the training exercise.

    Shouto cups his hands over his mouth and shouts, “You’re doing amazing, Midoriya!”

    (Or: Shouto tries to confess by being aggressively encouraging.)
