    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.

    Summary

    This being a documentation of the fall of the House of the First at the hands of the traitor Lyctor Cytherea, as recorded by Harrowhark (whilom Nonagesimus) the First, ninth saint to serve the King Undying, who asked that it be incinerated until no trace of her account of the ascent of herself and her cavalier to the side of the Emperor might remain. The document remains wholly intact, because Ianthe (whilom Tridentarius) the First, tasked with feeding these pages to the fires, is a messy bitch who loves drama.

    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

    Dulcinea sighs and lets her hand fall back to the sheets. “I sent him straight back to you, I promise. To be honest, I didn’t think you’d let him come at all…but I’m glad you did.” She smiles, revealing a thin line of blood along the inside of her lower lip, and for a moment she looks like a wolf after the kill, bright-eyed and sated. “Awfully selfish of you, keeping him all to yourself like that.”

    Summary

    Harrowhark was murdered three years ago, but the necropowered urban sorcery of Drearburh House can bring nearly anyone back from the dead, and if there's one thing Harrow knows, it's how to pull your own soul out of the River and back into London.

    She's going to hunt down everyone who had a hand in her death, even if it does mean she's got to ignore the voice in her head telling her to get out of town before it happens all over again.

    Summary

    From the MILFestival prompt:
    Infuriated that she can't stop Gideon from flirting with "Dulcinea," Harrow pays a visit all by herself to the necromancer of the Seventh on her sunny patio at Canaan House. Cytherea is first patient and amused to watch Harrow coldly threaten her, then fully taken aback when Harrow summons a skeletal army to intimidate her with a show of force. Cytherea almost kills her right there but then decides it would be more funny to turn this into a weird sexual encounter instead, so she pretends to be helpless and turned on by the skeleton light bondage pinning her to her chair. A nonverbal Harrow flees the scene.

    Summary

    MILF Fest 2021 prompt (... written by me, this is a tiac-typical self-fill):

     

    Overworked junior lawyer Harrow gets told by her therapist to do one (1) recreational activity to start rebalancing her life. She duly signs up for a pottery class taught by Cytherea, an artist almost twice her age. At first Harrow resents Cytherea's airy, self-amused demeanor, then she becomes obsessively invested in her approval. Her wheelthrowing doesn't really improve though. Eventually Harrow realizes that she's having a long-overdue gay awakening, which was already transparent to Cytherea, and they make out on top of the kiln.

    Summary

    [An unopened letter found in the ruins of Canaan House, left in the Lyctoral study whose contents pertain to the practice of thalergy-siphoning, colloquially termed ‘Avulsion’ by its curators. The letter is written in a delicate and attractive, if slightly shaky, hand. There is no addressee on the envelope, presumably because its author was so certain that it would fall into the right hands.]

    Cytherea leaves a message for Mercymorn.

    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

    Attempts at a reconstruction of the final days in the lives of the former Lady and seneschal of Koniortos Court indicate that Pent passed her time in the library, transcribing what she could of the series of letters, notes, and memorandums left by the House’s previous occupants, in the hopes of returning to the Fifth House with a wealth of new material to work through in her expansive research on the early Lyctoral period, whose primary sources were until now thought to be either exhausted or sequestered away in the Library of the Sixth House. What follows is a duplicate of Lady Abigail Pent’s transcriptions, easy enough to decipher though her source material was often incomplete due to the inevitable trappings of time even on a material as durable as real paper.

    Or: a series of letters found in the library at Canaan House, believed to be authentic communications between the first Lyctors and their cavaliers.

    Summary

    Cytherea took a moment to really observe the woman before her. Mercymorn always wore a calcified mask of distaste on her face, to the point where you couldn’t differentiate the woman from the mask. But in this moment, the mask was maybe a little bit cracked, and she was intrigued about what lay behind. Not vulnerability or softness in any sort, but something peeked, a thread of a particular intensity. She wanted to pull and pull and see the other end.

    Mercymorn confronts Cytherea about her attitude. They fuck about it.

    Summary

    As she removed her earrings, Ianthe joined Harrow on the couch, asking, "What're you reading?" When Harrow turned the cover toward her, she wrinkled her nose. "The Bell Jar?" She sneered. "No wonder you're depressed."

    "I'm not depressed," Harrow said, and was instantly aware of the fact that it was utter bullshit. Her parents were dead, Gideon had dumped her, and Ianthe was the only one who seemed to care that she was here. Depressed wasn't a strong enough word.

    Consider this a modern dark academia ballet AU. Very The Secret History meets Tiny Pretty Things or Flesh and Bone. It's dark, but not as dark as it seems.

    Summary

    Okay, so Ianthe and Mercymorn have sex. But mostly, it's through Mercy's terrifying and hot anatomy powers. It includes a lot of yearning, a lot of contemplating lost or inaccessible loves, and also Mercy majorly fucking/ fucking with Ianthe.

    I listed "dubious consent" mostly because Mercymorn and Ianthe are very, very bad at communication.

    The Saint of Joy looked at Ianthe with almost comical disinterest, though Ianthe knew (hoped?) that it was part of the show. She really hoped Mercymorn would not make her beg. She wanted to come, but also wasn’t sure how willing she was to humiliate herself more. This was enough. Ianthe half struggled upwards, but then Mercymorn was back on the bed, this time straddling her, knees spread and surrounding Ianthe’s hips. She placed her fingers on Ianthe’s neck, two fingers, like she was taking her pulse. Ianthe was frozen again, thank the Emperor. Ianthe did not want the choice. She did not want to be forced to choose between her dignity or her desire. Now she was stripped of agency, once again at the mercy of the other Lyctor.
