    Summary

    Julian "Jaskier" Pankratz is a nineteen-year-old student at Cambridge University studying Politics and International Relations. He hates it, and he's at risk of being kicked out for poor academic performance. Failure would mean returning to his family home, and that's just not an option. He wants to travel the world singing about death and destiny; heroics and heartbreak. So he needs to pass. He takes an elective module in English Literature on love poetry, firstly because it'd piss his father off, but also because he's heard the professor has an interesting PhD student.

    A passing interest begins to transform into something a whole lot more, and Jaskier finds himself faced with hard truths about life, about the society in which he lives and about himself. Society glorifies heroes and the sacrifices they make. But what happens to them when they're no longer useful?

    Summary

    "Steve, you still awake?" “Now I am, someone has been babbling at me.”, was Steves sleepy reply. Bucky let out a huff. "I've missed you." "I've missed you too, Bucky." “You've done well enough, haven't you? Peggy's really cute.” There was no response for a while. "Steve?" "I'm still awake." "Is that something serious?" He heard Steve sigh. "I do not know. We have a lot in common, but...” After another long pause:"Steve?" “Yeah?" “I am... I am gay." A long pressing silence followed quite after. Bucky closed his eyes in horror. He hadn't exactly known what he was hoping for, how Steve would react, but he at least had expected that he would react at all!

    Bucky is gay? Bucky is gay! Steve thought.

    "You're not saying anything," Bucky's low and quiet voice snapped him out of his thoughts. He swallowed hard. "Bucky. I thank you for your trust. I mean, you've told me, that's ... great! Uh, not that you're gay is great, but that you've told me. I... and of course it is not not great that you're gay, I mean ..." Steve was sweating with stress and holding his breath. At first, Bucky said nothing just laying on the couch struggling with his disappointment and maybe even with his tears, but Steve wasn't allowed to know...

With his kids sent away for their own safety, the rest of Anakin life is as stalled as his wife’s murder investigation. Aware that Obi-Wan’s concerns for his sanity are perfectly justified, Anakin also finds the surprising new dimension to his dislike for Ahsoka’s on again off again boyfriend only adding to his mental strain. With Obi-Wan and Ahsoka attempting to stop him from completely falling apart, however, Anakin keeps trying to unravel the dangerous mystery—knowing it’s the only way to get what’s left of his family back.
