    Summary

    Alexander of Tirragen is willing to fight his oldest friend in order to choose Alan of Trebond as his squire. His focus is singular - to be the best swordsman in the realm, he needs to train with the best, and his young friend has entered that tier to him. Alex doesn't realize that this simple choice will contribute to the upheaval of the realm. And make an absolute mess of his extremely private personal life.

    Jonathan of Conté is heir to the Tortallan throne, beloved by his friends, his court, his country. The comfort of his inheritance and the assurance of his entitlement is not something that's ever been called into question. Until his choice of squire goes to the knight he can't say no to, and the narrative of his perfect princely life starts to be drastically rewritten.

    Featuring Alan and Gary as the ride or die best friends Alex deserved, Geoffrey of Meron as Jon's long suffering squire and voice of reason, JUSTICE FOR THOM, and all of the other fun details of how this story might have gone if everyone had three more braincells...

    Summary

    It had been two years, and George hadn’t brought it up, and neither had Alanna, hadn’t made plans, hadn't so much as joked about it.  The closest they’d come was George mentioning, casual-like, what rooms in the keep might be good for a nursery.

    “I know you and your thinking, darlin’,” he’d said.

    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.”

    Very short little soft piece about how sometimes you miss people and it hits you unexpectedly.

    Also about how Alanna is definitely a cat person

    Author's summary:

    Alanna doesn't need a boyfriend. And even if she did, she really wouldn't want any of the guys her friends are finding for her.

    Thanks to the waiter, they really aren't so bad, though.

    The first time George meets Alanna, she's on a date with an asshole.

    Or, my take on a fandom staple: George is a waiter at the restaurant where Alanna is going on a lot of dates.

    Summary

    "We could marry here, you know," Alanna said thoughtfully. "It's completely legal under Tortallan law, and they would throw a magnificent feast." Suddenly her eyes lit up. "We could save ourselves from a big court affair with nobles we don't even like as guests. No fussy clothes, no worrying about silly etiquette rules. George, let's marry here!"

    George couldn't help but laugh at her exuberance. "I've waited a long, long time to get you to join me at the altar, my lioness. The sooner the better."

    What could change such a perfect plan?
