    Summary

    The Bowerbird wasn't playing fair; Jack couldn't debate these pieces of paper. He couldn't tell pieces of paper and a growing pile of feathers that he, too, remembered the rare treat that was eating a single piece of tropical fruit in the heavy heat of a Christmas afternoon, stickying his best suit of clothes, which had been so clean and pressed for church that morning.

    (In which Inspector Jack Robinson is having a fairly uneventful year, divorce notwithstanding, until he acquires a lady doctor for a drinking buddy and receives a series of flirtatious notes from a jewel thief.)

    Summary

    “I need you to marry me,” Harrow says, a propos of absolutely nothing that Gideon can see. And, uh, okay, this is not what childhood best frenemies say to each other upon discovering that both of their graduate programs have weird residence requirements.
    “What,” Gideon asks, “the fuck?”

    Summary

    Orphan, witch, and recently minted Gryffindor Quidditch team captain, Gideon Nav has a total of two goals for Sixth Year: get a girlfriend and beat Slytherin in the Inter-House Quidditch Cup. When the Triwizard Tournament returns to Hogwarts, however, it becomes clear that both fate and Harrowhark Nonagesimus have other ideas.

    A tale of magic, violence, romance, bones, and a frankly unreasonable number of reference texts (thanks, Palamedes).

    Summary

    "How do you know Nonagesimus has gone somewhere dangerous?" asked Isaac. "Have you wired some kind of alert system?"

    "It's, uh. It's on the schedule," said Gideon. "I just... forgot. Because of the bread."

    Nobody was convinced by this, least of all Gideon.

    "It's a Ninth House thing," Gideon went on, backing away with increasing desperation. This was a slightly more plausible explanation, if only because nobody wanted to look too closely at what fell under the awful skeletal-ribbed and rotting umbrella of Ninth House things. "Gotta go—!" And she was out the door, gone.

    But it wasn't a Ninth House thing, except inasmuch as it was happening to the only two representatives of the noble and decrepit Ninth House on this quite literally godforsaken rock. Gideon knew Harrow had gone somewhere dangerous—knew that Harrow was back in the lab where they had only just completed a horrible trial—because she could see it, clear as day: an awful overlay on her vision of that terrible dangerous room and a pair of terrible dangerous hands drawing some kind of ward next to the plinth.

    The hands were definitely Harrow's.

    This was definitely a problem.
