    Summary


    There was something in the way his king pronounced his name, Sena, stressing it out, almost making it a syllable longer that it was. It made Izumi feel infinite. Stronger than he was. Better than he was.

    “I’m loyal to you, and you alone, Your Highness,” he muttered, half ritual, whole truth. Those words felt like chalk on his tongue.

    They both knew it he was. They never spoke of it. There were things between them better left unsaid.

    or: izumi thinks too much, leo has no sense of danger, past mistakes weight on them heavily and names hold much more meaning than they should.

    no need to read other works in the serie.

    Summary

    How did it all turn into this? Their once perfect picture of youth, now a memory filled with pain and agony? The love in his view was gentle, yet in proof it was tyrannical and poisonous.

    (Inspired by "Alas that love, so gentle in his view / Should be so tyrannous and rough in proof!" from Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare.)

    Summary

    " inspire him to write a dozen love songs, huh... wonder if that'll be easier than it sounds. he doesn't look like the sort who'd write songs - let alone love songs - and i'm not the sort of person who... inspires others. "

    or, it's just another fake dating au where composer leo is paired up with closed-off model izumi for songwriting inspiration (and maybe something more)

    Summary

    fixed the title a bit !

    ***

    “Tsuka-chan, do you feel okay~?”

    Tsukasa doesn’t think Sora knows the complexity of the question. Sure, he’s okay. He could be better; yet he could also be so, so much worse. ...

    He doesn’t want to say all that to Sora, lest he think he’s any less than perfectly okay.
