    Summary

    You find your youngest son in the marshes up to his knees when he’s eight, up to his thighs when he’s ten. You weep in the night for him each time, tears silently streaming down your face as your husband sleeps next to you, blissfully unaware.

    When your son is a lanky thirteen, you find him up to his waist. It takes an hour before his dull eyes clear and sparkle like they’re supposed to.

    That night, when the moon is full and high in the sky, you slip out of bed and walk to the edge of the marsh to run your hands through the wild rushes.

    “Please,” you ask aloud. “Please,” you beg. “He’s my dear, sweet boy, please don’t take him.”

    The night is still and calm as you hold your breath and wait. When the wind finally stirs, it whispers “ras el-’alqa.”

    You fall to your knees and weep.

    Summary

    Hartenstraat AU

    After a life-threatening accident derails his life, Nicky pursues his original dream of being an illustrator. But that, alongside adjusting to civilian life, almost proves too difficult until Nile suggests he design the logo for The Aubergenie, a bakery co-owned by Sébastien and Joe.

    In between a bad first impression and a second chance, Nicky unwittingly saves Joe’s daughter. Suddenly, he finds himself a part of their lives, falling in love with them both as he works on the logo and a story inspired by them—and counting down til this fantasy falls apart.

    Despite their connection being too good to be true, various struggles, worries and expectations culminate in a heart-breaking misunderstanding that threatens to divide them before they can truly be together.

    Will they be able to salvage what they had, or had they burned too bright to last?

    Summary

    Yusuf’s blindfold is removed, he sees the flash of a steel blade, and—in an instant—knows exactly where this is going to go.
    They have found out what he is, and they want to know how.
    So it is a surprise when he finds himself being shoved into a chair, and a ruddy, round-faced Venetian priest grabbing him by the shoulders, and bellowing at him in ecclesiastical Latin:
    “Where is the lamp?”

    Twenty-five years ago, Yusuf told Nicolò an old folk tale about a fisherman and a djinnī trapped in an oil lamp. Then they parted ways at Alexandria, leaving Yusuf heartbroken.

    Now, as Tyre is captured by the Venetians after a long siege, Yusuf finds himself imprisoned in a tower by the sea for taking a stand. But who's been spreading rumours about an old oil lamp that belonged to Saint Nicholas?

    Summary

    "Dorian has crossed oceans -- literally! -- to be who he is freely. He has left family, fortune, and title behind for it, arriving friendless and penniless in a foreign land so that he has the freedom to love who he loves. Ironic, then, that when the opportunity presents itself to do just that, he finds himself unable to rise to the occasion."

    A re-imagining of Dorian and Mahanon's romance, taken at a somewhat slower pace.
