    Summary

    Two hundred sixty-one years.

    Twenty-seven deaths.

    And countless near-death moments.

    And yet nothing, nothing prepares him for the excruciating agony of watching Nicolo walk out the door and realizing that he is the one who made him leave.

    Summary

    Yusuf sighs. “Allah forgive me, but I do not want to kill you again,” he says to the Frank. “Please, no more death. It’s enough.” He slowly spreads his arms, palms up, hoping that his meaning will be clear.

    The Frank just gazes at him for a moment, his unsettling blue eyes sharp but the rest of his face lined with fatigue. At last he nods, says something in his own language and, carefully telegraphing his movements, lifts his sword from his lap and sets it down in the sand beside him. He holds out his palms, mirroring Yusuf. Thus begins their tentative truce.

    Or: another enemies-to-lovers backstory of dubious historical accuracy.

    Summary

    “I don’t want to fuck anybody,” Yusuf said, starting bluntly to save them both the trouble of specifics. “Or almost all the time, I do not.” (or: the one with slutty Nicolò and confused demisexual Yusuf)

    Summary

    After the seniors get a subpar lecture on secondary genders (Alpha, Beta, & Omega), Keith and Shiro start talking about the differences between alphas and omegas. But really, why tell when you can show?

    ---

    Keith laughs. “I don’t even know. And what was with everyone laughing about it after? They were acting like they already knew everything.”

    “Pssh,” Shiro dismisses, dropping the game controller beside him to wave Keith off, “they’re just faking to make themselves look good. As if they know better than the teachers.”

    “Right?!” Keith agrees. His breath comes a little easier now that he knows he and Shiro are on the same page. “And like, half of that didn’t even sound real.”

    “I know,” Shiro nods enthusiastically.

    “Like…” Keith pretends to cast about for an example, though he knows exactly which part he wants to say. The part he can’t stop thinking about. “…knots? That’s so weird, that can’t be real.”

    Shiro stops nodding abruptly at that and gives Keith a look like he’s the weird one. “What? No, knots are normal. But what they were saying about omegas? How they…” his voices tips down into a whisper, “get wet?”
