Seunghyun calls him by many things – My Prince, Your Highness, dear friend— sometimes Ji, if he’s feeling mischievous, and His Royal Highness Prince Jiyong (if the brat is being annoying and Seunghyun wants to tease him)— but never brother. It’s an unspoken truth that Jiyong is Seunghyun’s brother, but they will never be equal in rank, for Jiyong is borne of a Queen and Seunghyun is borne of a courtesan.
A pseudo-medieval AU, where Jiyong is a Crown Prince and Seunghyun is his well-meaning illegitimate older half-brother who does not covet the throne. Instead, he may begin to covet for something else, something more sinister — though the realization may not yet dawn upon him.
Contains tales of chivalry, of princes and kings, of knights, of forbidden loves.
Warning: Contains elements of incest. Do not go further if the subject matter squicks you. Also, there’s a larger age gap between Seunghyun and Jiyong of about nine years.
