    Summary

    “As a historian,” G’raha says playfully, “I cannot help but wonder, amongst her veritable legion of admirers, did the illustrious Warrior of Light ever deign to favour any with her affections?”

    “I fear she has a bit of a taste for melodrama,” says Adrienne, more seriously than he had hoped. “She once met a brilliant young man, you see, who favoured her with just one kiss before he shut himself away from the world. Fool that she is, I don’t think she ever quite managed to move on.”

    Summary

    “You know not what you ask of me,” he mutters, pained, tortured. “If I were to allow myself—if you were to let me—”

    “I want this,” you say, cutting him off. Tired, frustrated, you move, throwing one leg across his hip and shifting so that you’re straddling him, looking down at his shadowed features and that beautiful, beautiful mouth. “I want you.”

    Summary

    Set shortly after MSQ 5.3 during the Ishgardian Restoration, spoilers. Aymeric & G’raha Tia, omnicrafter!WoL, with background unrequited Aymeric/WoL and unrequited G'raha/WoL.

    It is a good thing that he is aware of G'raha Tia's role in preventing the Eighth Umbral Calamity, Aymeric decides grimly. Otherwise, he would have found the man to be without any redeeming qualities whatsoever.
