    Summary

    He’s clever, they always said, which really meant don’t trust him. But when Claude pieced apart his walls to let someone inside they were always surprised to find that he wasn’t the snake they’d been expecting. He was ambitious, of course, but ambition in the hands of good men is a blessing, not a curse. And when he described the tenets of his vision for the future it was easy to believe that clever was simply a synonym for kind.

    He’ll betray you, they said, already sitting in his palms, but when he drew his hands into fists to crush them they still bothered to cry out, why?

    Summary

    "So what you really feel toward women is...?"

    "The women who just want to use me to become nobility? Hatred's probably the right word."

    But hatred isn't enough to keep them from him, so why shouldn't Sylvain give them they want? As much as they want, as much as they can take, as much as he can give. And then even more.

    Loving Mercedes should be different from hating those others; but it's making hatred that he's used to, not making love.

    So they'll take it as painfully, agonizingly, teasingly slow as they need.

    Or. You know. Can.

    Summary

    Funnily enough, there is no better nest for monsters than a call center.

    Sure, the fluorescent lighting does nothing for his complexion, but although a foggy graveyard might have been a better backdrop for a bloodsucker like Linhardt, the bodies he’d find there would already be regrettably deceased.

    His deliciously dead-eyed coworkers, on the other hand, arranged into neat files at their desks like a line of grocery store apples on display?

    It’s convenient, to say the least.

    The only downside is that he isn’t the only one who’s had this revelation. Not that he’d ever been bothered to demean himself into fighting over something as primitive as territory before.

    At least not until that man with a head of ridiculous blue hair arrived.

    Summary

    Ferdinand Von Aegir did not spend too much time at the opera or reading novels as a child. If his thoughts now ever wander to being tied up by a strikingly handsome adversary (which they do not), it is only because he needs to be prepared with a good strategy, should that ever come to pass. Also, avoiding Hubert is much more difficult at Garreg Mach than it had been in Enbarr.

    Hubert prides himself on his powers of intimidation and detection, and Ferdinand is obviously hiding something. It is Hubert's duty to his future Emperor to put a stop to it.

    OR: Ferdinand thinks they're in a gothic novel and Hubert thinks they're in a spy thriller. They're both wrong. It's a romantic comedy.
