These drabbles are beautiful.
"One Night" describes the agonizing situation they are in. I love the words "Silk and Fire".
"Respite" describes a moment, heartbreaking in its brevity. "Fatigue and Despair" tell me how they feel.
"One Last Touch" describes a moment gone too swiftly to be emotional. "Weary and Lonely" are what the two men feel at this time.
"Light and Darkness" is a beautiful description of a few moments of love snatched upon a battlefield. "Helpless, Desperate", as they make their love for each other an actuality.
"Once" is my favourite of these drabbles. "Sobs and Sighs" describe the moment beautifully. I love the description of their bodies in brief little flashes of visualization.
"Solace" describes the act and the moment of closeness. I love "the attentions of warriors".
"Cup of Sorrow, Cup of Courage" is lovely; "hand to cheek" the last touch of each other that they will share.
Oh, my eyes are wet with tears. Bravo, Juno!

These are very touching drabbles. In a few words you manage to encompass the love, despair and desire between these two characters in the days before the last battle.
Very well done.
