    Summary

    After 10,000 years of pain, Cytherea emerges on the far shore of the River. She's heard fairy tales of people's loved ones waiting for them on the other side, but being a Lyctor had dispelled that particular hope of hers long ago.
    Loveday surprised her, in the end. She always does.

    Summary

    Mercymorn maintains her beautiful rose gold hair, and Cristabel helps. It's the night before they all ascend, so it's certainly emotional. A myriad later, Mercymorn and Cytherea enact the same ritual, with some siphoning thrown in.

    Summary

    A River of Many Tributaries (the online discussion board for communication between the Nine Houses. All thoughts, alive, dead, or dying, are welcome! Don’t stay on too long, though, or you’ll go mad :) Happy thought-sharing!)

    Topic: How does one attain koved rosh (a focused mindset in prayer; a “heavy head”)?
    The Emperor of the Nine Houses invites all the House heirs and cavaliers to share their opinions. The Fifth will moderate.

     

    Or: The heirs and cavaliers of the Nine Houses discuss the meaning of devotion and a focused mindset. Some are more focused on the topic at hand than others.

    Summary

    There is an arm that isn’t supposed to be attached. There is a soul that is supposed to be attached but isn’t. The House appears to be in its usual degree of decay. Ianthe looks over at the other bed, and there she is: Corona, sleeping soundly. If Ianthe focuses really hard, she can hear Babs’ snoring in the room over too.

    An arm that shouldn’t be there. A soul that should.

    A house not demolished. A twin safe and sound.

    For lack of being able to think anything else, Ianthe whispers aloud, “What the fuck is going on?”

    -

    Or, alternatively: Ianthe figures out the true secrets of Lyctorhood while stuck in a time loop at Canaan House.

    Summary

    "You're wrong there," she said. "If you want to know what I think... I think that you're a cavalier worthy of a Lyctor. I want to see that, what you'd become. I wonder if the Reverend Daughter even knows what she has in you?"

    They looked at each other, and Gideon knew that she was holding that chemical blue gaze too long. Dulcinea’s hand was hot on hers. Now the old panic of confession seemed to rise up—her adrenaline was getting a second wind from deep down in her gut.

    What if Palamedes hadn't interrupted at just that moment?

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a scion in possession of a dying House must be in want of a wife. Preferably one with resources. Harrowhark is a house scion in need of a wife. Gideon Prime has the universe at her fingertips. The only problem is: they absolutely fucking hate each other. No offense.

    Summary

    "Then she started asking me questions. Who were my friends? Was I well enough to go out in public? Was I married? I told her a lot of hot bullshit,” finished Dulcie. “I knew she was going to take my place—thought maybe Camilla, at least, would figure out something was up... no such luck. I don’t even remember dying—I suppose that was nice of her.”

    Dulcie's last conversation, with Cytherea

    Summary

    For Gideon living with Harrow had never been part of the plan. What do taxidermy and fitness have in common? Nothing, really. And yet in these small moments of complete disjointed communion theyve found something a bit like a home.

    Summary

    “I think I know how I can save us.” You said.
    “Okay.” I’m a grown ass adult, I have died before. I can use more than one word sentences god dammit!
    “Metaphysical thalergic temporal reconvergence.”
    “What?” Nailed it.
    "Time travel Griddle. Time Travel.”

    A kind of time travel fix-it fic with hopefully a happy ending.

    There was no way out of the Ninth’s own hunger but forward. Forward, and then back.
