    Summary

    After her brain began fully functioning again, Gideon allowed herself to relax into Harrow’s slightly pointy embrace as best she could. She wondered if this was what Harrow felt like in her freaky little bone cocoon. She hadn’t understood it at the time – actually, she’d been furious with her necromancer’s apparent desire to idiotically throw herself into the most dangerous situations possible without so much as asking Gideon to tag along to enjoy the show. But now, as Harrow’s feather-light arms circled her waist, and Harrow’s slight frame arched over Gideon’s broad back, she came to the profoundly upsetting realization that, in this fragile instant, she felt completely safe with Harrow at her side, her own personal necromancer cocoon in the quiet night.

    Summary

    She feels as though he’s peeling every layer of her being, one by one by one. And when he gets to her bones, he’ll find something she’ll never be able to run away from.

    “…you,” the stranger says, his hands flexing into fists. Unclenching again. “You are…”

    Gideon holds her breath. She doesn’t know why she thinks so, but it seems to her that Harrow does as well.

    The corner of the man’s lips twitch up in a smile.

    “You’re the spitting image of your mother.”

    Or: what if Pyrrha rescued Gideon from the Ninth as a child?

    Summary

    You had your body and I had mine, and it was a miracle. Your hands against my face were a miracle. The rest of your meat attached to your hands was a prayer answered and a promise broken, but we were flush and gasping and alive, and Harrow—I really thought you might’ve kissed me then.

    But I felt it happen. The way your breath suddenly stilled, and your body locked up beneath mine, remembering. How with splintering gentleness, you pushed me away.

    “I’m so sorry,” was the second thing you said upon waking.

    The first thing had been my name.

    Stranded in a safehouse on an Edenite moon, Gideon and Harrow try to put themselves back together.

    Summary

    Gideon tries not to think too much these days. She wants to focus on fighting this war, not the weird side effects of perfect Lyctorhood or the fact that Harrow can barely seem to be in the same room with her or that everyone keeps treating her like a bomb about to go off. It's going pretty well, if you ask her. Until she gets herself hurt protecting her useless necro, again, and Harrow's reaction does not fill her with warm, fuzzy feelings.
