    Summary

    Growing up, Laurent had often heard about the ancient allegory, young boys and girls around the court whispering insistently about how they had woken up with their own mark, their own word signifying their other half.

    The very fact that you could wake up one day with a word suddenly inked on your skin, a form of endearment that you shared with someone who could be in any of the kingdoms, branded into your skin like an engraving.

    Laurent was ten years old when his own word appeared.

    Summary

    The throne was never something that Laurent coveted after, nor were the physical reins of power. He much preferred to rule using his mind. It was why Laurent spent so many of his formative years sharpening it to the best of his ability, honing it into a blade that could best be used to Vere’s advantage, like a dagger hidden in his brother’s sleeve.

    That was what Laurent had become known for, what everyone in the court knew to look at him as. The scholarly prince, the withdrawn brother who always had his head in the books and his feet off the sawdust. What had started out as mildly irritating had soon become increasingly advantageous, for it ensured that no one would ever suspect what Laurent may have been hiding in his own sleeve.

    Summary

    Sabito backs up from the table a little, presses his hands against the floor in front of him, and bows so deeply that his forehead almost brushes the tatami.

    “Please take me as your husband.”

    Giyū’s glad that Sabito waited until after he’d finished eating, because otherwise he would have probably choked on something in surprise.

    Summary

    Assigned to Prince Lotor's command, hybrid-galra Keith will let nothing get in the way of his mission.

    Nothing, that is, until a figure behind a wall of glass catches his attention and won't let it go. Lotor's prisoner changes everything, and for the first time in his life Keith's priorities aren't so clear.

    Lance's story, of Lions and paladins and legendary defenders, sounds too fantastic to be true but Keith can't deny the draw he feels to the strange alien.

    There's no way this is going to end well.

    A prequel to the show that should lead neatly into canon events, with the exception of Keith's and Lance's backgrounds.

    Summary

    Another scrap of parchment shot out of the cup, a fourth scrap of parchment, which made no sense at all, and the Headmaster grabbed it from the air, unrolling it and reading it quietly.

    The entirety of the Great Hall remained silent. It was as quiet as a tomb.

    “Lance Álvarez?” The Headmaster whispered, and then again, louder. “Lance Álvarez.”

    Wait, what?

    // Lance and Keith have always been battling it out: on the Quidditch field, in the duelling club, for the best marks in Defense Against the Dark Arts, and Keith always manages to come out in the lead.

    Now, the Triwizard Tournament has been announced and Lance knows that Keith is going to beat him for the only open spot, even if he pretends that he thinks otherwise. But it doesn’t quite go the way that Lance expects, and everything changes from there.
