    Summary

    The shadow made her an offer: stay in the castle with him, and the regiment would survive the harsh winter that had trapped them all in the ice-sheeted valley below. 
    Alina paused. When the monster spoke, he seemed to gather himself together a bit more, pulling a simulacrum of a man out of the smoky gloom so subtly that it almost seemed like a trick of the light—shadows playing on shadows.
    “How do I know you’ll keep your word?”
    It was dizzying to look at the monster, especially as the wind whipped her lantern flame and cast flickering shadows throughout the room; he—Alina was fairly sure it was a he—seemed to be made of darkness itself, a shifting mass of smoke that coalesced rather than dissipated. 
    “I have no reason to lie,” he said, his voice crackling like flames in a hearth. 
    Alina furrowed her brow. “You have plenty of reasons to lie. What could you possibly want from me?”
    She must have been mad from hunger, because she swore the monster looked flustered, inasmuch as featureless smoke could look like anything.

    Summary

    "Miss Starkov, are you aware of how distracting you are in my class?"

    My lips parted open, frozen as he turned around, bracing himself against the edge of his desk and leaning back slightly. His quartz eyes glimmered as he evaluated every inch of me in a painfully obvious manner, as if he were reading me like I was words on a page. I forced myself to speak. "I-I'm so sorry I came in late, but I have perfect attendance sir, this has never happened before and I'm a very dedicated student," I stumbled over my words frantically, my throat painfully tight in fear. He laughed, a dry, raspy chuckle that shut me up almost immediately. "That's not what I was referring to, Alina," he hummed, the sound of my name rolling off his tongue sending goosebumps down my arms. It was almost... seductive.

    Summary

    "We're adults with hotel rooms, you know," he murmurs into her ear. "It's not like we're sneaking off before a press conference or something, we've got all night."

    With her mouth on his neck, he can't see her rueful wince—a surfeit of time and the absence of sneaking off is exactly the problem, as best as she can diagnose it—but he must've felt her shift against him, because he draws back and looks at her curiously. She's saved by the sound of the door to the stairwell opening a few floors above them and someone's footsteps on the landing.

    "Come on," she hisses urgently, taking his hand to lead him up the stairs. "Mine's closest."

    Summary

    Tessa and Scott don't remember a life without each other. They've moved from from Canada to Canton together at 14 and 16. How does their relationship change and grow throughout these years? Pre 2010 Olympic season. Spoiler: Scott fucks up. Too much fluff & angst.

     

    Tessa couldn’t move. She felt her heart race in her chest and tasted the blood in her mouth as she bit through her bottom lip. There’s no way that he would say that, it was just classic Olivia messing with her. This was Scott she was talking about. The boy who’s sweatshirts smelled of cold mornings in foreign cities, who knew exactly how she liked her hot chocolate made when she was sick—with three drops of vanilla, a teaspoon of salt, and a pinch of cinnamon.
