    Summary

    The young dragon grows proud and unfettered, pressing down on his festering insecurities, the ever present mark of loneliness stowed away within his scaled chest. If a mortal enters their ruins, he happily watches as their faces drain of blood and they give, with trembling hands and fearful eyes, their gold over to him. He is not lonely, he tells his grandfather when he occasionally teases him about his lack of friends. He is satisfied, he insists loudly and then adds more quietly, "I have you after all."

    His grandfather makes an odd face every time- an expression he cannot read because it is a wisp of a wistful thought, creased with age and twice folded over- and always, always changes the topic.
    - Of a fledgling dragon and his meeting with a human girl who changes the trajectory of his life entirely.

    Summary

    Before Leo could protest again, he said, “I think I have something I want to try, but I don’t—I’m not really sure how well it’s going to work.”

    He didn’t say It’s really risky.

    He didn’t say If you help me it’ll be easier, but I’m so scared it’ll go wrong that I don’t want to ask you. I don’t want you to get hurt. I don’t want you to see me hurt. I want Niles to wake up and say it’s all going to be alright, but he won't wake up and soon we won’t either.

    Other, more incoherent, thought swirled in his mind. He said none of them.

    Summary

    “Drawn to the other like Icarus to the sun, or a moth to a flame (ironic, all things considered), Yuri arrived at the only logical conclusion, reached after a long string of sleepless nights. He had to become involved with Kaburagi Kotetsu in a different way, and infiltrate his personal life.”

    Yuri needs to make peace with a part of himself. As always, Kotetsu is there to help.
