    Summary

    This is how Parker knows she’s in love: because any other time she’s ever wanted something, she’s just taken it, but she doesn’t want to take Hardison, hoard him for herself when she doesn’t know how to love him right. She wants him to be happy. She wants to be what he deserves but if she can’t be, since she can’t be, she’ll… she’ll have to make sure he’s happy anyway.

    ***

    Parker doesn’t know how to be in love with Hardison. She tries to get Eliot to do it for her.

    Summary

    After Kel breaks orders and invades Scanra to rescue her Haven civilians in Lady Knight, she is found guilty of treason in wartime.

    She escapes with the help of friends and does the only thing Kel could ever conceive of doing in that instance-- she keeps fighting Tortall's war.

    This is Kel, however; she is always willing to fight her battles alone, but people will always rise up to fight alongside her.

    Summary

    Parker used to tell herself bedtime stories.

    Because no one else did, and because the picture books she came across always seemed to paint the dragons as the bad guys. So she made her own, stories where the rules made more sense to her and the characters were more interesting and the dragons were bigger and cooler and winners and always got a happy ending.

     Parker falls in love three times.

    Summary

    "It was something like desperation that led Eliot to start looking up dance organizations in the area. At this point it was either punch or dance, and the punching hadn’t worked out so well.
    The first search result took him to a well-designed, minimalist site. “Lindy-Hop, West Coast, and East Coast Swing, Wednesdays at 7pm. Free Drop-in Lesson! Dance $5.” Eliot glanced at his watch. 7 o’clock already, but he’d still make the open dance.
    He grabbed his jacket and headed out the door."

    Summary

    Today, Sunday, there's a sense of rightness and quiet. Outside, he hears birdsong that reminds him of home. Rashid drops sugar cubes in each tiny glass bowl—refined white for Lapsang Souchong, demerara for Earl Grey—and readies the tea tray for delivery.
