    Summary

    In Drearbrurh, the sight of a sword to Gideon’s head or a hand around her throat might have been cause for celebration. Hell, had Harrow both the opportunity and spine for it, she might have driven the sword through Gideon’s skull herself, an effective solution to the countless problems wrapped up in Gideon’s sloppy robes and sloppier face paint. Instead, Harrow pressed her outstretched hand into that vulnerable place at the base of Gideon’s skull, digging her fingers in tight to prevent them from lashing out.

    Her own voice came unexpectedly, rising from some unknown depth. Harrow said, “Your cavalier drew on my cavalier.”

    A Gideon the Ninth Chapter 7 rewrite, written from Harrow’s POV, because I am obsessed with this scene.

    Summary

    Adora had made a promise to Catra years ago that she would protect her from everything. She would save her from it all. She would’ve done anything to keep her promises to Catra — both back then and now. She’s going to do whatever it takes to make sure she can keep this one.

    “I promised you I'd take you home,” She says. "I meant that. I’m gonna do my best to get it right.”

    (Or Catra and Adora in the aftermath of Horde Prime.)

    Summary

    The machine - because he knows better than to ask for a name, it would be silly to think he had anything more than a serial number - wonders if this is how thinking usually goes. It seems inefficient to keep asking himself questions instead of just knowing the answers, but maybe that’s just the way a mind works - one part to observe and ask, and another part to answer. He just woke up. He does not know how machines work.

    (His programming starts to answer, and he tells it to be quiet.)

    On a rescue mission for Juno, Rita picks up something else.

    Sometimes the Dark Matters tech we steal is the friend we make along the way.

    Summary

    There are a couple of ways to handle heartbreak. Alcohol, the tried and true method, denial, and other forms of intimacy she’d rather not think about in relation to Mistah Steel, thank you very much.

    Or, the much healthier option, a best friend! Who’s always been there for support and always will be.

    Huh. Boss is pretty lucky to have her, ain’t he?

    Summary

    "That's what I'd like to find out. Perhaps we could find somewhere to sit down, get to know each other a bit better?" Buddy raises one eyebrow, lets her tone turn up near the end, dangerously flirtatious, and Vespa can't help but think back to when they'd been sitting at the bar, to the things Buddy had said to her (her cheeks light up like a neon sign as she remembers, and she's thankful again for the cover of dusk). She'd be a fool to fall for the same dumb grift more than once. It would be stupid.

    She'll just have to keep a closer eye on the wallet this time.
