hey! have you ever read something so great you think about it for days on end? And re-read pieces of it while waiting for the bus and while on hold on the phone? that’s so amazing you need to share it with everyone you know?

this is the best original story I have read in months - it’s got everything - futuristic space politics! arranged marriages! slow burn! space pirates! danger and intrigue! you-fell-in-an-icy-river-and-we-need-to-cuddle-naked-for-warmth!

The Course of Honour by Avoliot

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.

it’s a story with great characterization and an amazing plot and when I read the first line, I said to myself, now that’s how to open a story.

so yeah check it out :D

(read the warnings on the story as they’re quite relevant to the entire story)

(also posted on tumblr earlier this month but i wanted to share this here too)
