    Summary

    will and james meet again, in the 20th century. this time, they remember

    “You came for me,” he murmurs, breathless. His porcelain features are flushed from champagne and another, darker thrill revealed in his blown pupils. He wavers a few paces away from Will, unsteady, as if he doesn’t quite trust what he’s seeing.

     

    Will doesn’t reply right away. Lets the invisible hands brush aside his hair from his face, a touch so faint it could be mistaken for the evening breeze.

    Summary

    Will hadn't lifted his hand, and James's pulse was a slow throb under his warm skin.

    "Do the Stewards realize you're clever?" James's voice was intimate, new, and subtly approving, like he'd learned a secret. Will stayed where he was for a long moment, before stepping back to simply regard James from the opposite wall of the cell.

    "Does Simon realize that you are?"

    Summary

    Will hadn’t known that James could become any more distraught, but when his words seemed to bury in his throat and he froze, Will realized that it could get worse. It could always get worse. James’s eyes stayed locked with his own.
    “That’s what it was?” He whispered. “That feeling?”
    Will smiled sadly. “You’ve finally got it.”

    (Will actually tells James that he's the Dark King, and it's not realistic whatsoever but I'm desperate)

    ‘Capture him? There was no capture. You don’t understand. It was the Dark King’s will, so James knelt and bared his throat for the stroke.’ Gauthier’s voice was a dark promise. ‘I told you. Put it around his neck and he’ll do whatever you tell him.’
    (Chapter 28, Dark Rise by C.S. Pacat)
