    Summary

    The ceremony is surreal, like an out of body experience. She walks up a makeshift aisle, the crowd parting to watch her, to take her measure. She’s aware a priest of some sort says words that hush the crowd, but she can’t understand them. She throws a glance over her shoulder, where her mother is bleary eyed but stone faced. She shakes her head almost imperceptibly but she doesn’t interrupt or object. She knows their survival hinges on this.

    She turns back to the priest, barely glancing at the man next to her, but his presence feels overwhelming. His breathing is even, he doesn’t fidget like she suddenly realises she is. He smells a bit spicy, a little heavy. Foreign. She nearly jumps when he shifts on his feet and brushes against her arm, the heat of him searing her skin.

    Her eyes are firmly fixed ahead as the priest starts proceedings, as he chants prayers that she can’t decipher. She can only pick out certain words, and they all make her blood still in her veins. Death, fight, blood. If there is a word for love in trigedasleng she doesn't know it.

    Summary

    “Oh, Anne!” Phil exclaimed. “You took Gilbert Blythe’s virginity then immediately proceeded to tell him you would ‘always be his good chum’ the summer before you got to college, and now you’re not even speaking to each other!?”

    Anne buried her face in her hands and groaned piteously.

    “You are my new heroine! Let’s have a toast.”

    In which Anne Shirley-Cuthbert's determination to be a "woman of the world" comes at a great price.

    Summary

    Killian's full name was, of course, His Royal Highness Charles Eochaid Lachlan Killian of the House of Breathnach, Duke of Holywell Forest, Son of the Ash Mountains, Prince of the Realm and Keeper of Her Majesty's Keys, but that was quite a mouthful to get through when you were trying to introduce yourself to a pretty girl at a card table.

    Summary

    She misses him the way she would miss a sense or a body part; she misses him like something that was always a part of her, even though, realistically, she’d only known him for four years compared to the rest of her life. She misses him like something vital she’d never considered what it would be like to be without until suddenly she was.

    Modern AU - Clarke hasn’t seen her best friend for six years and then suddenly she does.

    Summary

    Set nearly five years after the end of I Don't Need Your Love (I Just Need You Now), with The Griffin Agency a well-establishing law firm/PI agency, and Clarke renowned as a brilliant lawyer throughout Polis.

    For the third year in a row, they're hiring ten interns in order to whittle them down to two people to hire by the end of two weeks. AND for the third year in a row, they're vetting them in a... slightly unique way.

    When Shaw arrives, he doesn't expect the atmosphere to be as casual as it is, and he certainly doesn't expect to be completely bowled over by someone as intelligent and beautiful as Raven Reyes working there. He also isn't expecting one of his bosses to be constantly hitting on the other one, despite her clear disinterest, and he decides to put a stop to it.
