Awaiting On You
Shy, awkward Jensen Ackles attends his sister’s debut party and is saved from the unwanted advances of Lady Jessica Alba by the dashing Jared Padalecki.

Prince Harry's Future Half African, Half Jewish American Wife, Whose Also a Divorcée? - Royal FoiblesRoyal Foibles
As one might expect, given the politics of both households, opinions among courtiers concerning Miss Markle becoming a future royal duchess is sharply divided among staffs of Buckingham and Kensington palaces. As one might expect, the hidebound traditionalists of Buck House, who’d initially objected to Prince William’s burgeoning relationship with Kate Middleton, and later are rumored to have attempted to orchestrate an engagement between Harry and Cressida Bonas, are less than pleased at the prospect of the fifth in line to the throne plighting his troth with a half Black, half Jewish American actress whose previous husband is very much still among the living. Objections to the relationship are rumored to have become so virulent that last November, according to the author’s sources, it was a particularly nasty, old and aristocratic cabal of courtiers at Her Majesty’s official London residence that were behind the Daily Mail’s now notorious article,EXCLUSIVE: Harry’s girl is (almost) straight outta Compton: Gang scarred home of her mother revealed-so will he be dropping in for tea? The piece, though mildly laudatory of the fact that Miss Markle is largely a self made, obviously talented and independently successful young woman raised by a single African American mother who clearly struggled to make ends meet, but nonetheless triumphed against the odds, the article emphasized her working class background and the fact that her mater still resides in an economically downtrodden community in Los Angeles notorious for its gang violence. The message of the article was clear: Meghan might be a nice young woman, but her background renders her completely unsuitable as a future royal.

Welcome Back to History, America!
[Makes reference to the various Kings we've been watching.]
Face facts: throughout much if not most of history, the guy (or gal) at the top is not up to the job....

Administrators, wealthholders, technocrats, lobbyists, and courtiers tiptoe around such rulers, trying to manipulate them for the public good or for their faction's good or—rarely—for the rulers' own good as they flail about, knowing that they are out of their depth and that their immense power and luxury is purchased at the price of immense danger and never being sure what is actually going on.

The Course of Honour (29 Parts)
When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.


This was actually not bad. I liked it, overall - the ~story and the characters to some degree.

The most frustrating aspect about it is the massive misunderstandings? Like, I dunno, I don't really ... classify that as slow burn. It's more like, they like each other, they just ... take a really long time to tell each other that because they were being dummies.

Another frustrating aspect: that stupid blackmailer. Like, who the fuck would let themselves be blackmailed by *this* asshole??

You're the One That I Want
It’s actually his father who suggests it.

“Take the rest of the summer for yourself,” he says. “Do something fun.”

“Fun,” Sidney repeats blankly.

(The one where Sidney is the Prince of Canada.)

To Be Wed - by ThereBeWhalesHere
“Sam?” Spock raised an eyebrow, and Jim nearly winced. He often forgot that to everyone else, Sam’s proper name was ‘George III’, but he kicked himself for having let himself slip now.

“Ah, it’s just a nickname,” Sam explained, giving Spock a smile that didn’t quite reach his eyes. He took his drink from the table, pinky finger streaking the condensation as he raised it, feigning nonchalance. “Although, I suppose if we are to be married,” he continued, “you may as well refer to me as ‘Sam’ too.”

A silence settled over their small group, not due to Sam’s words, but due to his tone. He sounded so sad, so tired, so entirely less than regal, powerless in a way no crown prince should be, as though he had expended any energy he had.

Jim didn’t fail to notice Amanda’s crestfallen look, or Spock’s carefully controlled expression of surprise.

“And while we’re at it,” Jim spoke up, voice much louder than he meant it to be, and containing a kind of levity he hoped didn’t sound fabricated, “you might as well call me Jim. ‘Prince James’ sounds stuffy, doesn’t it?”

Spock turned his eyes back to Jim, seemingly digesting his words, though at least part of his attention was still on Sam, who sipped uncomfortably at his drink.

As You Wish - by writeonclara (ST/Bedazzled)
"What are you?"

"Never mind that," Lucifer said, flapping a hand. "Tell me about your wish."

"So, what, you can grant it?"

"Perhaps. As long as you don’t wish for me to undo events that have happened in this universe. Even I have my limitations. But otherwise, sure. It would be my greatest pleasure. In fact," Lucifer smacked both his knees, as if coming to a sudden decision, "I'll even give you seven. Seven wishes for the price of one."

"What?" Jim asked, suspiciously. "Why?"

"Why not?"

"I mean, you're calling yourself Lucifer. It just seems like a phenomenally bad idea to make wishes to someone named Lucifer."

"I only said you may call me Lucifer."

"No, see, we've all been trained a certain way. The training system is traditional; it's centuries old. Nobody taught you. You ballist like it's got nothing to do with war at all." A sleepy, extraordinary smile crawls over Victor's face. "Nobody else does it like that. That's why we're going to win."
