    Summary

    Captain Arthur Pendragon has put together the best team of specialists that the SAS has ever seen, but when his superiors assign Lieutenant Merlin Emrys as his communications officer, Arthur does everything to make him feel unwelcome. Arthur's job is to protect and guide his team through dangerous missions, and he worries that he can't do that when the newest member has a mysterious background and acts suspicious when he thinks no one is looking.

    As their assignments become more dangerous, Merlin can't help but to use his magic to keep his team -- even his prat of a Captain -- safe from threats they couldn't possibly understand. But when they are sent on a undercover operation against a group of zealots intent on a magical apocalypse, Merlin needs to confront his fear of discovery and derision, and to finally trust his team with his secret.

    Arthur and Merlin rely on each other for more than the sake of their mission. The entire world is at stake. When they learn -- from dragons, no less -- that they are prophesied to restore the balance of magic to the world, they fight on regardless of the outcome, because duty, honour and loyalty is a far stronger driving force than destiny.

    Summary

    “We gonna tell her?” Joe mumbles, still busy eating the remnants of Nicky’s lunch from his plate.

    “Tell me what?”

    “Joe and I, we can read each other’s minds,” Nicky informs her as he sips his cappuccino, as if he’s talking about something as casual as their drink order. “Since the lab.”

    They're already half of one another's soul, but after the incident at Merrick's lab, suddenly Nicky and Joe have a brand new connection between them.

    Summary

    “Yes. I had received an invitation to an Orlesian hunt. I hadn't thought much about it, I don't hunt and I dislike Orlais...Ferelden and all.” Hawke pulled out the invitation – a gilt strewn, silk covered horror done in purples and gold. “At any rate, there was a rather predictable ambush and an elf helped us out of the jam. Then introduced herself as Tallis and asked if I wanted in on a jewel heist.”

    Never one to let an opportunity slip past her, Hawke talks her friends into joining her at a hunt in Orlais. Little do they realize that the "jewel heist" will involve Orlesian shenanigans, an overly familiar and flirty elf, and ruffles.

    Summary

    “We’re in this together, you know,” Wei Wuxian says. “You’re dead. I used to be dead. We're both tolerated and incredibly unwelcome here. We both annoy the same people, as far as I can tell. I’ve built relationships on less. Let’s work this out.”

    But again, there’s no response.

    (Or: there's a ghost in the Cloud Recesses.)

    Summary

    Lan Wangji leaned forward to lick the sweat off of Wei Wuxian’s neck. “I am fucking you,” he said as Wei Wuxian started to whine.

    He took his hand away, blinking his way back into the jingshi. Lan Wangji was laying there as unruffled as ever.

    “You really like the begging, huh?” Wei Wuxian said weakly.

    Lan Wangji’s smile was so warm, his eyes so soft. He said, “Wei Ying’s voice is pleasing to me.”

    ---

    Wei Wuxian can read Lan Wangji's mind. He's surprised by what he finds there.
