Summary: Valath and Nidan are very happy at college, despite the supposed incompatibility of their courses of study--her magic and his science. But when their career paths take them in very different directions, things start to fall apart.



Valath lay in the sun with her eyes closed. She knew Nidan was there next to her, his breathing just as slow and comfortable as hers, the warmth of his skin the barest addition to the sun’s warmth. This was contentment, she thought. This was how life should be.

Then he rolled over on top of her, caught her shoulders in his hands, and kissed her. She kissed him back and laughed, opening her eyes. “We’re in public,” she whispered to him.

“I don’t care,” he whispered back, kissing her again. “It’s not like anyone doesn’t know about us.”

She shook her head. “I hope not. But there are still some things that should be kept private!”

Prompt: [community profile] bigbang_mixup. Based on the mix "Where You Been Hiding Lately?" by [livejournal.com profile] burning_night.
Summary: When Artona leaves the planet Halos for the backwater Caila, she expects to settle into a nice, quiet life with her fiancé, Mark. But she arrives to the startling discovery that Mark is not just an ordinary man--he's the Lord of Caila, the hereditary and elected ruler of the entire nation. And now she's being pulled into politics along with him, which would be bad enough if their political views were the same. She loves him, but this isn't the life she was looking for, and now she'll have to make a choice.
