    Wizards are by their very nature in love with their craft more than anything else, and nothing can surpass that, but Vetch thinks that he is perhaps a bit in love with Sparrowhawk.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Vetch means to write a song of Sparrowhawk's shadow-hunt, and he does, but it shows too much of himself; and so he writes it out on parchment and then burns it and scatters the ashes into the shadows of the sea.

    Summary

    Sui Zhou has known Tang Fan is gay since he met him, and he's known about drag nights at Huanyi for almost as long. It has never been a problem for him. Seeing it for himself shouldn't change that.

    Summary

    Doc’s eyes get dark, just for a moment. “You’re a kid,” she says then, standing to pace, rubbing her mouth with the back of her hand thoughtfully, like she’s trying to blot a memory out. “I shouldn’t be thinking about it at all.”

    Something wild and reckless swells in Lightning’s chest, the feeling of speeding towards a finish line, one lap to go, victory just moments away. “But you are.”

    Summary

    The first time they crossed paths Willow stared at Spike like she had grown a second head, although, Buffy reminded herself, it was possible she was just looking at the fangs. Or maybe the breasts. And, on one hand, you know, girl power, but on the other hand, ugh. What kind of monster went shirtless under a leather jacket?

    “Is she — ” Will said, with a look on her face that was something like mesmerized.

    “Is the Pope catholic, Will?” Xander asked.

    “Way different reactions to crosses, though,” Buffy pointed out. “And probably also to girl on girl action.”

    Willow choked.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Most women weren’t available for other women, and you didn’t ask the ones you weren’t sure about. She’d been too timid, anyhow. Cecily had been the first one she’d really come out and said anything to, and it’d taken months of screwing herself up to do it. And it had hurt, yes. Badly, but not for long, because then there had been Dru, and Spike had thought — well. This is love, and Cecily was just a crush. With a little more perspective, these days, she thought that was just the difference between having a soul and not having one.

    Souled love shied from uncertainty, and got distracted by imperfection. All those pesky insecurities and bloody inhibitions got in the way, if you let them. Unsouled — Spike had never loved anyone so hard as she had loved Drusilla, hadn’t known she could until Buffy came along. There was none of that pussyfooting, there was just the chasm of id, of want. Obsessive want, want that didn’t particularly care if things were perfect or certain, want that would take the risk.

    And sometimes, like with Dru, and Cecily, and Buffy, the risk didn’t pay off, and you fell into that chasm, and it hurt like a bitch. Christ, how pathetic was she, that the only woman she’d ever managed to keep was off her nut and only halfway loved her back anyway? What the fuck was wrong with her?

    Summary

    “I get to have this,” he says wondrously, squeezing Lan Zhan’s hand.

    “Every day,” says Lan Zhan. “Until there are no more days. And even then.”
