    Summary

    Fear grips him, his heart pounding, and Laurent tries to back away from his own body, hands dragging his new weight.

    His pants are in tatters, the seams split and laces ripped. Every other blink, he sees nothing but an orange outline of what used to be his legs thinning out and growing bluer by the second. Laurent takes in quick, frantic breaths. His tongue has stopped bleeding, mostly, clotted and thick in his mouth. Laurent looks up at the shaman, frowning down at him. Her whispering has stopped, her eyes normal once more. Her shoulders are slumped, and her brows furrowed.

    She looks drained. Defeated. Disquieted.

    In Vaskian, she asks, “Does your body still work?”

    Summary

    "What can I do to repay you?"

    Laurent stepped back in surprise. "I don't-"

    "There must be something you want," the dragon said, his tail flicking lazily behind him.

    "Besides a ride home, you mean?"

    The dragon gave him a long-suffering look. He and Laurent were surrounded by mountains of treasure— radiant gemstones, ornate spellbooks, ancient artifacts. There was the glint of Veretian weapons and the shine of Akielon armor. Coins of silver and gold pooled around his ankles.

    Laurent stared at the glimmering piles of precious things and felt empty.

    "What I want can't be bought, not with diamonds and gold."

    The year Laurent turned thirteen, his brother and a company of fifty men entered the dark woods and never left them. For years, Laurent had longed for answers, and Damen might just help him find them.

    Summary

    Damianos’ stride is confident. He amps up the crowd, raising his arms and grinning widely. His cheek dimples. Hysterical cheers follow.

    Uncle shakes his head. “He’s a complete and utter idiot."

    Laurent stares at the muscles in Damianos’ arms, shoulders and calves as his chiton moves. “I think he’s charming.”

    Or: five times Laurent thought Prince Damianos was the one, and the one time he was right.

    Summary

    Auguste wakes up.

     

    Or rather, it isn't so much that he wakes up - he opens his eyes and simply is, in a way that he wasn't moments before. He is perfectly aware of the air around him, of the bloodstain beneath his body that is slowly sinking into the earth. He stares up at the sky and sees only vaguely familiar stars, known to him only because of his younger brother’s attempts to cheer him up by taking him stargazing throughout the long campaign.

     

    He wonders where Laurent is. Wasn't he here just moments ago, watching from the sidelines of his battle with Damianos of Akielos?

    ---

    Auguste dies, then wakes up as a ghost, only able to haunt Laurent.

    Summary

    Laurent was hardly surprised that his Uncle was going to kill him. It felt inevitable.

    What he was surprised by was the Prince of a kingdom of selkies (something he had only believed to be fairy tales from books that made up the wonder of his childhood) saving him from that death (which honestly he felt he might just be hallucinating or dreaming in the afterlife).

    A Selkie!Damen AU where human Laurent survives an assassination attempt against all odds and the plot that follows. This story will be the longest work in a series or collection of other works all set in the same AU!

    Summary

    The Regent always had a peculiar taste for a certain kind of pet. More peculiar than what it seems at first. And he liked to keep trophies of them in glass cases.

    Nicaise was just the next pet.

    Summary

    “Can you, ah, act?” Old Charls asked, clasping his hands together and twisting.

    “Ah,” said Damen, who could not.

    “Damen, here, is hoping to rejoin his family,” coaxed Young Charls. “And, since we’re heading south anyway… I thought to offer passage, and perhaps assist him in his preparations to meet with his esteemed father once again.”

    “Ah.” Old Charls didn’t seem to follow, but he nodded anyway.

     

    **

    On the 10th anniversary of the disappearance of Prince Damianos from Ios, King Theomedes offers a reward to anyone who can bring him proof of Damianos’ fate.

    In Vere, a travelling troupe of actors find the perfect man for the job, and head south to make their fortunes.

    Summary

    Damen steamrolls over him. “You’ve got a murder plot and a suspect. What do you need me for?”

     

     

    De Vere looks him up and down exaggeratedly. “You’re the hired muscle, of course.”

     

    Damen’s hands clench into fists. “The hired muscle for what?”

     

    “For the stakeout we’re about to pull.”

     

    His father is dead. The media is a pit of snakes speculating that he did it. As his world crumbles around him, Damen finds himself seeking help from an unlikely quarter - his most bitter rival, the cold, caustic Laurent de Vere.

    Summary

    Following the untimely death of both King Aleron and Crown Prince Auguste, after a mysterious illness, the land of Vere was thrown into despair. The young Prince Laurent, Aleron’s only living heir was a mere boy, and incredibly survived the illness which befell Arles. Thankfully, King Aleron’s brother courageously became Regent for his nephew, holding the throne until Laurent came of age. He took Laurent under his wing, and raised him side by side with his own son, Nicaise, who was the same age as Prince Laurent.

    In an effort to stabilize Vere, the Regent betrothed young Prince Laurent to the Prince Damianos of Akielos, publicly ensuring peace and prosperity for both nations.

    Sadly, no one saw the Regent’s treachery. To stay in power, he curses Laurent, turning him into a swan and uses magic to pass Nicaise off as Laurent just as Damianos arrives at Arles for the royal wedding.

    Summary

    Circus AU for the Caprive Prince Reverse Bang 2019

    @capri-bigbang2k19

    Based on the lovely @silverdraeconis‘ Cirque du Vere piece!

    When Damen woke, he was locked in a cage with a lion, and his head was killing him. He was on his feet in less than three seconds, trying to put as much distance between himself and the creature as possible. He took a deep breath, and assessed the situation… the lion was chained to the opposite wall, and didn’t seem all that interested in him. It didn’t have the range of motion to reach him, and even if it could, it probably knew that food was coming soon, and Damen wouldn’t be the easiest meal it could get. For the moment, he wasn’t in acute danger from the lion. 

    Despite this, he was definitely in acute danger from someone.

    Summary

    “I’m sure you’re thinking that I should have known better than to make a bargain with a Siren,” he said with a rueful smile. “And you’d be right. I should have. But getting off that island, and the promise of finding my father’s murderer… the pull was too strong, and I was weak. I didn’t even ask what the cost would be. I agreed.”

    Laurent had not looked away from him once since he had begun talking, his attention a nearly-physical weight upon Damen’s skin. “And what did it cost?” Laurent asked softly.

    Damen stared at him. “Everything,” he finally said. “It cost me everything.”
    ****
    When Damen is cursed by a Siren in exchange for the revenge his heart desperately desires, his life is thrown into chaos, and betrayal lurks around every corner. Despite his better judgment, he allows a beautiful young man to seek berth on his ship, not knowing that he has granted refuge to the one man who has every reason to want him dead. Laurent may be the key to breaking Damen's curse, and Damen could help restore Laurent to his throne—but if they have any hope of helping each other, they will have to untangle their bitter pasts first.

    Summary

    Laurent's uncle had been planning to take the throne for years. After all, what's a stray arrow in the middle of a battlefield? And Akielos had done him a grand favor in killing Auguste. It’s a shame Laurent had to die too though. His secret pet had been so sweet. The only worrying thing was Laurent's body had gone missing.
    He had been found alive by two enterprising Akielon soldiers who end up sending him into the care of Pylaeus to be trained in the art of servitude to one day be presented to Damianos-Most Exalted Prince. Of course being a mute amnesiac has its advantages and disadvantages as Laurent and his new acquaintances will soon learn.
