    Summary

    The Lanes never sleep.

    The sunken streets may lie beneath Piltover’s heavy shadow, and the faults are numerous and deadly; but no one can claim that the Undercity is boring.

    There is always colour to be found, if you know where to look.

    It’s something you pride yourself on – the ability to see what others can’t. Some mistake it for simple optimism. But you know it’s more than just that. It’s the thing that’s kept you alive this long, in more ways than one. You've always been happy to go wherever life has taken you, and you're a big believer in gut instinct.

    But you never expected to end up working as a bartender at The Last Drop – having been scouted by a blue haired girl who wouldn't take no for an answer.

    Neither did you expect to find yourself landed with the terrifying task of ensuring Silco's personal drinks cart is kept well stocked.

    And you certainly never expected to find yourself inadvertently become the weekly drinking partner of the Eye of Zaun himself.

    Summary

    Trixie is a girl on the run. Raised to be a queen, she's only ever lived as a pawn, shuffled from board to board by the powers-that-be, or a prize to be hunted and claimed by the strongest contender. It will take a push for her to realize that the keys to the kingdom lie within her grasp, that she can be more than just the spark that sets the world ablaze, and that, perhaps, she isn't nearly as alone as she thinks.

    Summary

    Victoria went through her life, 63 years of reign. The Grandmother of Europe. That history was written from the moment she was born, because as a mortal, one always had to live through unbearable foolishness only to gain little wisdom in old age. So she lived then died, full of hindsight. Now she is offered a chance to restart all over again, at the fateful morning of 1837. With what she knew and what she wished she had known, no longer a young naive maiden of 18 but an older woman with regrets, what different choices could she make?

    Summary

    “It was Lord M, wasn’t it,” he muttered, and there was a hint of resignation in his voice.
    “Yes.”
    “In your dream, were you… intimate?”
    “Yes,” she said hesitantly, feeling a blush on her cheeks. Now it was her turn to avert her husband’s gaze.

    Albert finds out about Victoria's sensual dreams with her ex Prime Minister. But instead of anger, he turns to science. What if she just needs closure?
