    Summary

    [updated summary]

    Lancelot is King's Champion, but after being badly injured in a tournament he begins to fear that he is getting too old to do the job properly. Gareth has been training most of his life to be a Knight, and specifically to be the next Champion. When the opportunity to take up that mantle presents itself, however, he and Lancelot have a reckoning that has been a long time coming - Gareth has been in love with his mentor for years, and unbeknownst to him Lancelot feels the same. Naturally it isn't that easy though.
     

    “I swear to God, Lancelot,” snapped Gareth, “If just once more you say that you are old, I’ll - I’ll thrash you.”
    I turned to Look at him, fighting a smile. I could tell by his voice that he was teasing. “You wouldn’t,” I told him, confident that I was right.
    But Gareth crossed his arms over his chest, a stubborn expression on his face. “Try me.”
    I laughed, a harsh, disbelieving sound. “Fine,” I shot back, “You couldn’t.”
    “Oh really?”

    Summary

    The last building on Bay Street is the only thing keeping the area from becoming a perfect neighbourhood - rough and dangerous, just as its inhabitants who had thought that their biggest problem would be keeping the council from taking away their home.

    Instead, they are faced with werewolves, freshly intergrated into society, who are claiming human mates.

    Jamie finds it difficult to run the illegal businesses of the apartment with an infuriating, if handsome, werewolf police officer shadowing him; Raphael is claimed as the mate of a grumpy, hard gangster who is surprisingly clingy, against his will; Buster's biggest concern is finding money, no matter what - yet he finds a certain pale haired, arrogant wolf he just happened to rob unforgettable; Art wants to get through life quietly, even as an illegal stripper - so when he finds out his new teacher and the owner of his building is his mate, his life is pretty much over; Val is pretty happy making a living as an underground fighter which is why Ellie, rich werewolf CEO, irritates the hell out of her; and Gus is now forever tied to a soldier due to be dispatched soon.

    Oh, and there's a weed van parked in their back yard.

    Summary

    Galahad's flower shop is having a slow week until a customer comes in to buy a very particular flower arrangement...

     

    "Once in a blue moon, something properly exciting happened during Dead Week.

    The bell tingled cheerfully as the door opened. Galahad looked up from the computer where he was playing a round of solitaire (dead week indeed) to find that his customer had already stalked up to the front desk.

    “Hello, how can I help you?” Galahad asked politely, trying to engage calmly with the agitated young man on the other side of his counter.

    “Yes. I need a funeral arrangement that says as close to ‘rot in hell you evil bastard’ as you can make.”
