    Summary

    Kaveh is very dedicated to that new project of his – to the point of total exhaustion. Alhaitham is not the best person to look after him, but he is the only one who does.

    He also might realize some important things in the process.

    Summary

    It begins in the House of Daena, or at least, Kaveh thinks that that’s where it should begin. If one were to trace the flow of events backwards, it would lead to this moment. If Kaveh were Al-Haitham, he would insist on going further back. Further. Further. Further. All the way back, to the literal beginning of all of time and creation, possibly. But Kaveh’s brain only has enough room for so many creations at any given moment, and the works of others — while inspiring — historically don’t get students passing grades. Or even grades at all.

    When thinking about one’s relationship with their soulmate, it seems natural to think to a first meeting. A first introduction. Well. This can be said for any relationship. It all begins with that first brush — a name, given; a silhouette, glanced; a voice, heard.

    Summary

    Albedo doesn’t like drinking, and after the change of the year, he likes it even less. This could have less to do with the alcohol and more to do with the pushy adventurer trying to take up all his time.

    Summary

    “This isn’t a courting, it’s an engagement. An inevitable part of the fact we’re going to spend the rest of our lives together.”

    “Cheery,” Jesper mutters. “Do you want to talk about your hopes and dreams, then? I've always wanted a summer wedding.”

    •••

    For all Jesper Fahey has a reputation — as a party-kid and a playboy, a flirt, a slut, a whore — he really, really intends to make his arranged marriage agreement to the Van Eck heir work. He wants it to, at least, even if what he wants rarely ever ends up mattering.

    Between hunting trips, dinner parties, business meetings and dark nights in the Barrel, Jesper does the best he can to befriend his fiancé. He just has to hope that his ghosts stay buried long enough to keep someone from calling off the wedding.

    Summary

    “Don’t tell me that you’ve frozen to death already,” Kaeya tuts. He pats the young man’s cheek lightly, and when he does not budge, hovers a finger over his mouth.

    Soft puffs of air are blown onto his skin. Alive, it seems, but barely. When Kaeya fiddles with the cloak to reach for his neck so he can check for a pulse, he pauses.

    Etched onto the young man’s skin in blazing gold, right in the center of his throat, is the four-pointed star of Khaenri’ah.

    Or, in the middle of a blizzard, Kaeya finds a boy with a four-pointed star on his throat and eyes that hold galaxies.

    It changes everything.
