  1. Summary

    A number of ficlets focused, mainly, on Lan Wangji.

    They can all be read as a standalone, but take place in a rough continuum so I'm combining them in a series.

  4. Summary

    Once upon a time there was a division of classes. The nobles sat up on their hills and watched the lesser folk of their dominion. Every year they asked for taxes in the form of gold and grain.

    Then came the revolution with the War To End All Wars and the time of republics.

    Yet monarchy and the royal houses preserved in some other state.

    Some intermarried with their former subjects and all should have been well.

    But life is not easy when you're young and you stand out from everyone around you just because of the family name you were born with.

    YHR tells of the turns life may take for this young adult generation of high nobility by assuming their point of view.

    Events up until June 2010 are - mostly with some careful extrapolation along the storyline - as they were in reality, from then on, they turn AU and are entirely our own imagination.

    Summary

    “So they’re coming for our Emissary because they lost theirs?” Derek asked, somewhat angrily.

    “It would appear. The McCall-Hale Pack’s reputation precedes itself.”

    “Don’t worry,” Scott said, “we won’t let them touch you.”

    Deaton turned to him, offering a private smile before inclining his head slightly. “Very comforting, Scott, thank you. But,” he looked between them, “I’m not the Emissary they’re coming after.”

    Derek frowned and shared a look with Scott, who looked as confused as he did.

    “What do you mean?” Scott asked. “What other Emissary is there?”

    (SNYE - January 23rd - Alpha & Emissary)

    Summary

    Altschmerz

    n. weariness with the same old issues that you’ve always had—the same boring flaws and anxieties you’ve been gnawing on for years, which leaves them soggy and tasteless and inert, with nothing interesting left to think about, nothing left to do but spit them out and wander off to the backyard, ready to dig up some fresher pain you might have buried long ago.
