    Summary

    When Harrowhark Nonagesimus arrives at Prefect Seminar, the exclusive class she’s spent three years working towards, she expects serious study and prestigious academic bliss.

    What she finds instead is a crop of bright red hair and a wide, lopsided smile. In short, her year is ruined.

    But hey, at least one of her tumblr mutuals has turned out to be pretty good at sexting.

    Summary

    Gideon Nav (28, no job, kind of spiraling) lands the audition of a lifetime with The Locked Tomb, an indie band hoping to enter a prestigious music program and earn themselves a record deal. Which would be awesome, if it didn't mean having to deal with her childhood nemesis straight out of the worst little town in Texas.

    Modern-day Texas AU.

    Summary

    Harrowhark Nonagesimus is on the cusp of the biggest promotion of her career, the job she's dreamed of for years. All that changes at a moment's notice, when Mr. Gaius sentences the company to an impossible expectation. Harrow is expected to work in frustrating conditions, expected to conquer a place which haunts her deeply. She's expected to work through her grief for Gideon Nav, her wife who was lost months ago.

    Gideon Nav is on the edge of her sanity. Every day she fights for survival, stuck in an impossible place with impossible odds. She has her sunglasses and her prototype energy shield, but none much else. Certainly not the gorgeous two-hander she left behind in her old life, and certainly not a way back home to the love of her life, Harrowhark Nonagesimus.

    Summary

    With a very calculated and deliberate gesture, Harrow threw her finger forward and dug it between two of Gideon’s ribs. The taller woman’s jaw flew open and her body bent over on its own, to which she hugged herself without a sound, every inch of her too focused on the pain she was feeling to react in any other way.

    “Every second I spend in your company is a knife buried in my chest,” Gideon looked up with her eyes half closed in a grimace to find Harrow’s face to be at the same height as hers now that she was folded in over herself, courtesy of those infernal sticks she called fingers. “Every second I am forced to converse with you ( - who the fuck talks like that, painfully interceded Gideon dizzy with pain - ) I feel my IQ being slowly dragged down by your pathetic attempts at communication. Did you know? I actually kind of admire your ability to ignore the ancient purpose of words for information sharing, and instead use them to somehow worsen the preexisting silence. Yet my admiration is nowhere near grand enough for me to want to stand your company for even one second more than necessary.”

    Gideon found her breath again and shakily replied with a grunt. “Cool. I’ll see you at five then.”

    Summary

    Time has a way of slipping past and before we know it, a lifetime has passed. Some things bear repeating though and if you just keep trying, eventually one of them is going to stick.

    Or

    The multiple times over their lives that Gideon proposed, or tried to propose to Harrow.

    Summary

    Harrow experiences necromancy-induced pregnancy. Gideon is there to support her and also laugh at her a bit.

    Summary

    Due to societal pressure (and an unfortunate friendship with Ianthe), Harrow ends up accompanying her girlfriend to the stupid birthday party the twins are throwing. One too many drinks and an idiotic, dare-related midnight walk on the roof later, she finds herself in the hospital.

    While Harrow struggles to cope with her vulnerability being on display for everyone to see, injury-prone Gideon doesn’t take being on the flip side of that particular story very well.

    Reading the other fics in this series isn’t required to understand this story, but they can provide a bit more context.

    Summary

    I found myself thinking of you often, Kiana. I know that’s silly, so please do not chide me; we’ve never met, though we've been writing for years, and sometimes I feel I may not even know you at all. Your every letter is guarded and solemn, and I know that’s probably just how you are, but sometimes I wish I could see your face. I’d like to know if I’ve ever written anything that pleased you or made you smile.

    I must have stared at that page for half an hour, and reread it at least fifteen times. Dulcinea was twenty and I was twenty-three, and nothing about this was inappropriate on its face, but something started twisting in my gut a little bit the more I thought of it.

    I didn’t reply to that letter for a long time.

    Dulcinea Septimus writes to Palamedes and Camilla. She also writes to Kiana. This produces a set of complicated emotions and interpersonal dynamics that no child of the Sixth wants to parse.

    Summary

    Harrowhark Nonagesimus really does not want to go on this stupid work retreat. Gideon Nav really does not want her childhood enemy to suddenly show up at her job just as she's finally getting her life together.

    Neither of them will get what they want. But they might get what they need...eventually.

    Summary

    Gideon remembers the first time they stuck Harrow on the ice, in her matching puffy pants and coat and her sombre black helmet, like shoving a cranky baby rook out of the nest. She fell down immediately, and when none of the adults seemed about to step in and right her, Gideon did it herself. She could skate backward by then, so she took Harrow’s mittened hands and tugged her along in slow, endless circles. She remembers—or thinks she remembers, maybe it’s just her mind filling in from later examples—Harrow’s furrowed, pinched expression of furious concentration. She always hated needing help. More than she hated Gideon, maybe. But that day, for the few hours it took her to get her blades under her, she scowlingly accepted both.

    Or, the figure skating AU that happens when I binge watch too much Grand Prix coverage.

    Despite the fact that Dulcinea had never actually met Camilla Hect, she knew without a doubt that the person standing in the window was not her.

    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.
