Who set fire to the Golden Serpent? And why?

sword and shield - maesilju - The Goblin Emperor - Katherine Addison [Archive of Our Own]
Beshelar's first impression of Edrehasivar, seventh of his name, had been... well - not much of one at all. The youth seated in the Tortoise Room was nothing like Varanechibel - not in presence, nor in stature - indeed, he had little family resemblance to the late emperor save the winter-grey of his eyes, and the long, slender fingers twisting nervously together in his lap.

In which Beshelar realises that first impressions don't actually count for much - and that there is more to Edrehasivar than meets the eye.

“Wait,” Cala replies. “There’s something I wish to do.” He bends down to kiss Maia, and his lips are soft and wet. If the maza showed any restraint earlier in the evening, it is long gone, and his kiss is open- wanton and wanting. “Maia, canst thou take more?” asks Cala breathlessly.

Maia makes a helpless gesture to Beshelar, confused. “What more can there be?” he asks in turn.

“If thou wouldst allow me…” Cala murmurs, and it has a note of begging about it, “if thou wouldst allow me too.”

egelantier: and count every beautiful thing we can see
but i should probably add, non-spoilerly, that the world is sort of on the... fluffy? side? not in the sense of solid worldbuilding -- that was actually very well done -- but in the sense of tone. like, addison/monette apparently explicitly set out to write clair as opposed to noir, so it's a world where a lot of the characters are good and can be won over by goodness

(apparently clair vs. noir distinction belongs to addison - truepenny herself, as pertaining to goblin emperor writing process, but as it's something i always wanted to formulate and couldn't, i'm stealing it with all due respect).
