A name was given to him, Sweet Rhys. And he was the sweetest there could ever be.
Here he was God, here he was everything, and the Shadow in his mind hissed at all who dared defy.
Nothing would stand in his way.
As midwinter approaches, the Hårga prepare their next ceremony to celebrate the coming frost. The May Queen is to be honored, adored, and, should she will it, choose a consort as her companion through the dark winter months. Dani does not believe anyone would be interested in being her consort. Pelle disagrees.
Dani learns of another Hårga tradition.
"He smiled his quiet smile at her, open and unassuming as ever. Her mind flashed back to the moments after the dance competition, when he kissed her so passionately, as if she were already his. If the gesture was meant to stake a claim, he hadn’t done anything since then to progress it. She wasn’t entirely sure how she felt about the kiss, but recalling it made warmth bloom in her chest."
In a world where once a person comes of age, they switch bodies with their soulmate, and only a kiss between them can hope to switch them back.
Or: One week after the Promised Day, on Edward's 18th birthday, he switches bodies with the person he'd least suspect.
Soulmate AU (though, more canon-divergent than AU, in my opinion). Romance. Blind Roy. Ed is 17 at Promised Day.
