          Louis laughed along with Dustin, enjoying the idea of the younger brother, who he'd sort of thought would be Dustin MkII, sounding rather different, not that he disliked Dustin at all. He couldn't... more

            “I think rules are important,” Dustin contradicted. “They’re a solid guide. The problem is that nobody knows what the damn rules are anymore because they keep changing.” He caught the change of tone... more

              Louis actually thought that trying to please his father would be more likely to lead to throwing his life away. However, despite his current rebellious thoughts, he was still a Valois. You didn't... more
