    Harrowhark Nonagesimus is horrified to discover after inviting the Sixth to visit on a whim that Palamedes Sextus has taken their arguments about necromantic theorems on the net for friendship. Worse, she's less and less sure that he's wrong.

    Summary

    The marriage between Palamedes Sextus, Master Warden of the Sixth House, and Harrowhark Nonagesimus, Reverend Daughter of the Ninth House, had been arranged when they were fourteen and sixteen respectively. Harrow had done most of the arranging, forging her parents' hands to politely make overtures to the Sixth on her own behalf. She had realized not long after her parents' deaths that things could not continue in the direction they were headed - the Ninth House rapidly dwindling like the way the great-aunts shrank a little more each year, on their way to a crumbling and arthritic demise. Therefore, she had sat herself down and conducted research on the other houses, as best as she could, and determined that the Sixth House was likely to be the least intolerable to her. The Sixth liked books. The Sixth valued knowledge. The Sixth knew how to keep their mouths shut. That, she decided, was as good as it was likely to get.

    Summary

    Gideon grimaced and made a decision. “Alright, come on. Let’s do the thing.”

    “The what?” Harrow said, sounding moderately disgusted.

    Gideon moved close to Harrow again and tapped her on the shoulder. “I’m going to help you, but I’m doing it to prove a point. And the point is that you’re not trapped here, you’re freaking out for nothing, and you’re unfairly trying to abandon me.”

    “That’s three points,” said Harrow.

    [At the end of the war, necromancy is banned and Harrow struggles to find her place.]
