    Summary

    “Well then, you’d best put the thing on,” Frances says, apropos of nothing, and Jaime’s heart pounds between her ribs.

    “I beg your pardon?”

    “The dress. Show me it. You brought me here to show me the wares for your proposed ball, after all.”

    Summary

    Tom gets reassigned. Greg gets dragged along. Half a year snowed in and babysitting an old, failing hotel in Colorado, what could go wrong?

    (Or: The Shining AU that grabbed my brain and wouldn't let go.)

    Summary

    “What’s wrong with a little quid pro quo?" Ianthe asks, sweetly. "I’m giving you exactly what I know you need-” Harrow’s-no, Gideon's nostrils flare at that, “and in return you’re giving me something that I want very much.”

    Post-HtN Ianthe has missed her chance with Harrow, hopefully only until some later date. In the mean time, there's always the naïve cavalier who wears Harrow's body awkwardly, like it's two sizes too small. Gideon may play-act the immovable object at first, but Ianthe is at her core an unstoppable force, and she learned long ago precisely how to identify fault lines in solid rock.

    Summary

    “You know, Harry,' Ianthe drawls, 'When you told me you liked sweetbreads, this is not at all what I had in mind.'

    She very deliberately relaxes into her makeshift bone manacles, head lolling against upraised arm, legs spreading in mock submission.

    'But I always did want you to eat me.”

    Post 'Arm-scene' -- Harrow re-experiences "the sheer animal pleasure of Ianthe's arm"... and then some.

    Summary

    Just hours ago, Dulcinea watched an ordinary human being perform the impossible.

    Dulcinea, not Camilla, sees Gideon first after the siphoning trial. Gideon x Dulcinea, Gideon x (Spoiler), implied Gideon + Harrowhark.
