    Summary

    “Welcome to Harlequin Radio, hosted by yours truly, Ace of Spades! In the booth is our resident stabby... young lady? Okay, she’s signing ‘woman’ at me in a very annoyed way— resident stabby woman, Two of Diamonds! We’ll be on the air for the next few hours, and any callers are welcome after the first five songs.”

     

    Or, Zolf is a radio host, Hamid calls in, and neither of them recognise each other on their shared train ride.

    Summary

    Cultures and customs vary across races and geography, and it cuts into some relationships. Courting rituals among halflings in Cairo, for instance, may be completely different from courting rituals among humans at Prague University, may be completely different from courting rituals among dwarves in Herefordshire.

    Or, five times Hamid was just really weird, for no reason whatsoever, and one time he fucking proposed.
