Though the circus has settled in for its winter break, Trowa Barton (acrobat, animal-handler, and werebeast beta) still has his hands full — with a newly acquired lion he’s sure is more than it appears, the return of former romantic partner and current alpha-friend-with-benefits Heero, and tiny niece Relena growing up much too fast.
Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir: Ladybug and Chat Noir face off against an enemy that shows them a variety of unpleasant possibilities… and one that may be a little more pleasant.
Duo and Sano discuss relationships and magical experiences while Heero listens in on multiple levels.
A recent series of voicemail messages from Duo has brought Heero to a realization… and a decision.
An unusual situation pushes Sano to confess what he’s been holding back all this time, and Hajime must make a decision about Sano’s role in his life.
The ambiguous comfort two confused soldiers can offer each other may be precisely enough.
Having been slaves for most of their lives, they know that love is both a luxury and a weakness they can’t afford; with Sano obsessing over a guard and Katsu enchanted by a newly-arrived fellow slave, however, they may not be able to help themselves. But something bigger than that is going on around them, and their growing feelings may be the least of their problems.
Sano discovers something about Saitou that he would have considered impossible.
Saitou’s ghost seems to be haunting Sano, and Sano is coming a little unhinged as he realizes it’s too late for anything between them.
Saitou and Sano come to an arrangement that may or may not have anything to do with cars.
Saitou is very irritated, for some reason, by the new development between Kenshin and Sano.
Saitou doesn’t approve of the direction Sano’s life is going, and one of them is going to have to compromise.
Kenshin isn’t sure what he means to Saitou, who’s been raping him for so long it’s become a matter of routine… but finding out and bringing an end to their interaction may be every bit as painful as not knowing and letting it continue.
