The meme is here: Give me the names of two characters and I will tell you why character A loves character B.  Here is clare_dragonfly's second prompt: Riensin and Tairiekie.

Riensin knew he was handsome.

He didn’t take it as any particular virtue of his — he had the same face as his twin, an

They'd been back at school for two weeks.  Enrie was entirely caught up on all her classes, and Taikie was back into reading ahead by at least a week.  Their Instructors had either forgiven them, or, in the case of those more nosy than fretful about academics, had stopped asking what was going o

It felt strange to be back in school.  Their Instructors had all been told — well, something, at least — by House Monitor Libkazaarie — which meant that Instructor Pelnyen looked at them sideways but everyone else seemed to accept their absence with decent grace.  

There were projects to wrap up

Saydrie rescued her.

Enrie turned to look at Gianci.  Everyone else, she noticed, was doing the same.  

He cleared his throat again.  He was looking over their heads, not at them. "Sometimes they tell people they can't go back to the enclaves.  Banish them.  Some people leave on their own, sure, but sometimes... som

The day of classes seemed to stretch on interminably.  Once they reached the end, Enrie could see what Riensin had found. She could see what else they had to do.  She could figure out who they were supposed to take this to.

But first she had to get through Biology and Textiles and Philosophy.

Finding Riensin was harder than she’d hoped it would be.  He wasn’t in the dining hall, he wasn’t readily visible in the library, and he wasn't in his dorm’s common room or in his room, although his roommates gave Enrie and Taikie quite the look — before they noticed Saydrie standing with them.
