    Summary

    "The Ancient Greek philosopher Hagnon referred to a ritual in Sparta in which girls had sex with adult women before marriage... The Spartan poet Alcman, writing in the seventh century BCE, composed a hymn to be sung by unmarried girls that says... an older woman, "exhausts me," a reference that might imply sexual interaction..."

    Summary

    Catra wasn't given a choice. The Queen summons Catra from her duchy and tells her that her marriage has already been arranged. Allying Halfmoon with Eternia via marriage will allow the magicats to finally join the Princess Alliance and the Queen is unmoved by Catra's protests otherwise. Having no choice is hard enough, but it is made even worse by the fact that Catra not only knew Princess Adora once, but loved her. Catra enters a political marriage with a woman that she loves, but who seemingly never cared for her the same way.

    Summary

    It’s been several weeks since Beau’s father married her off to the leader of the Dolorav Tribe, the Skyspear. It was meant as punishment and to send her away now that Thoreau’s “true” heir had been born.

    But the Skyspear wasn’t the godless heathen she was told she would be. She was kind and gentle and not once ever pressed Beau into anything she didn’t want to do, aside from the arranged marriage itself.

    Her feelings for the woman have grown and Beau finally feels ready to give herself over to her.
