    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

    Summary

    She’s staring at Blake like she’s giving up, like she loves her, like she’s handing her that sky. Take this, she’s saying, this clap of thunder, this wildfire waiting to start. Take this like it’s my heart.

    Blake runs away, and only after realizes what she's been running to. I've seen enough destruction, Yang says. Sometimes it's nice just to watch the flowers bloom.

    Summary

    She can’t see her without craning her neck, but she can picture the mischievous gleam in brown eyes, the sharp cuspids that add bite to the flirty smile.

    “Are we playing, Sameen? You haven’t told me what the rules are.”

    Soulmate AU.
