    Summary

    It’s been ten years since Duncan left the kingdom of Caladan to serve as an Atreides knight elsewhere, to keep the kingdom safe. Ten years is a long time…long enough that memories of a boy are overshadowed by the reality of the man before him.

    This is a King au, with a ten year time skip. Paul is in his late twenties and Duncan is somewhere in his early forties.

    Summary

    Zolf squints at him. “You’ve been matching me drink for drink, how’re you still this…”
    “Smug?”
    Delightful.” Zolf says. It’s supposed to be sarcastic, dry. He’s not sure he entirely succeeds, which is probably because, in his heart, he actually means it.

    Summary

    Velle (Latin): to want.

    “It was the act of bodily union that achieved marriage, and after which the indissoluble bond was complete.” -J.R.R. Tolkien, “Laws and Customs Among the Eldar”

    For the whole year they have been living and working in Minas Tirith, Legolas and Gimli have postponed their marriage – planning to wait on even their elven wedding until the conditions are right for the dwarven ceremony as well. But on the eve of their parting to Ithilien and Aglarond, faced with the prospect of an indefinite separation, they decide they can wait no longer. They want to be wed now, so they can part as true husbands – and so they can finally satisfy long-deferred desires.

    To both of their distress – and the great amusement of Legolas’s companions – they are soon to learn that some desires are not so easily deferred . . . and that the formation of the marital bond is only the beginning.

    Summary

    He crept down the stairs and found his target. A plate of muffins sat on the countertop—pristine, undisturbed and utterly beguiling. Carter swiped a couple. He tore a piece off one and shoved it in his mouth, humming happily as a blueberry burst on his tongue. He absconded with his treasures back up the stairs, making sure to be just as quiet on his return journey. His room was at the far end of the hall and he stalked towards the door with purpose, thrilled with his successful heist.

    Years later, Wilde dies. He’s old and he’s had a long life, but Zolf’s still young enough to have to deal with relearning how to move on.
