    Summary

    Let’s talk about two best friends, who – as everyone knows – couldn’t be less alike.

    Everyone knows this. They laugh, when they say it, sometimes, or they scowl. Sometimes, it's said with simple astonishment. But they always say it, with the assumption threaded through their voices that it is as self-evident a fact as the sun rising in the east.

    (The scholar "Everyone" is justly famous for being very off-base.)

    A different perspective on Kel and Neal, through the years.

    Summary

    Wilina expected a lot of the Imperial University, to be sure—a full schedule, challenging work, masters who are literally the most talented people in the world at the specific thing that they do, exciting tropical wildlife. So far, she has not been disappointed (although maybe the women’s baths could be somewhat less infested with lizards).

    or, angry mages and reasonable adult authority figures: the college years.

    Summary

    He knows (hopes) she isn’t dead yet. But his squire (his daughter, as he’s come to think of her) is miles deep behind enemy lines on a virtual suicide mission. With treason charges awaiting her if she returns (gods, he hopes Jon knows better. He’s almost sure he does. But Jon is a king, and he’s notorious for unpleasant surprises). And he thinks of marrying Buri, without Kel at his wedding. He thinks of having to find another knight to pass the Own to. He thinks of actually having to tell Alanna.

    ---

    Raoul is struggling with Kel's disappearance into Scanra. He's surprised to find he's not alone.

    Summary

    “Should we talk about what just happened?” Baird asked, voice very low.

    “Talk about how an eleven-year-old child opened a doorway to divine power?” said Myles. “Or talk about how that child did so to save the prince from an unnatural disease sent to disable the line of succession? Or talk about how that child is likely now a prime target for whoever sent it?”

    “We could talk about how we’re not referring to that child as a boy, right now,” offered Baird, and Myles took a sharp breath.

    "For that child’s sake, we should talk about none of this.”

    Summary

    In the Protector of the Small, Keladry of Mindelan is the first girl to openly enter knight-training in approximately two hundred years. But let’s say that she isn’t. Let’s say, instead, that she shares that status.

    Let’s say that her best friend, Nealan of Queenscove, is Nealann of Queenscove—fifteen years old, Healer, eldest daughter, and heiress to the Duchy of Queenscove.

    Summary

    “Queenscove,” he says with a half-hearted glance up. “You’re in the palace late in the working day. What new piece of his revitalized government has our king-to-be been asking your opinion of?”

    Every single conversation with Thom reminds her exactly why it was that she could go from “neutral” to “keen on disemboweling” in such a short span of time. That’s not important, but it helps her thoroughly quash the fantasy of conjuring a ball of water and dropping it on his head.

    or: angry mages and reasonable adult authority figures take on the plot to lioness rampant.

    Summary

    “What possible use could Princess Josiane have for a revenant?” Thom demanded, bursting in on Delia at breakfast.

     

    “Thom, this is highly improper,” Delia complained. “I’m doing my best to re-establish myself as a lady of the court, and –”

     

    “A revenant, Delia,” Thom said, flinging himself down into a seat and taking a breakfast roll without asking. Delia eyed him resentfully. “A creature of the grave, drawn back from the Black God’s embrace. And besides, you’re my sister-in-law.”

     

    ***

    Delia, Thom, and the Great Resurrected Duke Scandal of 439 HE.
