    Summary

    “There’s something you need to know,” Harrow said to John and Mercymorn. She locked eyes with Gideon, holding her gaze firm.
    White-ringed eyes flicked between them, and a frown flickered on John’s face. “Alright.”

    “Well, it’s interesting that you’ve chosen to tell me about the visa application now,” Harrowhark said, turning to John and Mercymorn, “when Gideon only proposed last weekend.”

    John blinked. He looked between them. “Excuse me?”

    “I’m getting married,” Harrowhark said.

    “To who?” John asked.

    “To my assistant,” said Harrow, ignoring the choking, strangled noise of surprise Gideon made from the door. “To Gideon Nav. We’re engaged.” She paused, then stood. “Aren’t we, Griddle?”

    “No,” Gideon said, because she was the worst. “What the fuck?”

    Or: Harrowhark Nonagesimus is the youngest editor ever to run the Ninth House publishing company. But when Harrow violates the terms of her work visa, her only way to retain her job is to marry a US citizen— and who better than her assistant, Gideon Nav?

    Summary

    “Eddie, what are you whispering?” The wife says, tossing her hair around and giggling. “You don’t have any surprises for me, do you?”

    Eddie visibly chokes back another round of land-lover vomit. “Actually, Myra. I do have a surprise.” He reaches into his suit jacket with trembling hands, and Richie doesn’t really want to see what he pulls out. They’re already fucking married, according to this broad, so what else could they possibly do in front of him?

    “Why don’t I get you two started off with something to drink?” Richie says, remembering he’s here working and not actually trapped in a torrid love triangle with two strangers.

    Summary

    Every time Eddie laughs, Richie looks pleased with himself. And it’s pretty often. Richie’s good. He takes direction well and doesn’t flub the lines. But there’s a problem: he likes to improvise.
    Eddie hates comedians who improvise all over the written script. None of them are as good as the writers are. It’s attention-seeking and desperate.
    “Hey, Nathan Lane,” he calls out, “stop with the improv. Freestyle at home.” Mike lightly punches Eddie in the shoulder.
    “Mike, get him out of here, he’s interfering with my process,” Richie says in his best diva voice. He doesn’t seem offended, which is good, because Eddie was afraid he’d crossed a line as soon as he’d said it. They were friendly but probably not at the fake insult level of friendship yet. Still, Eddie calls out again.
    “You’re not Robin Williams in Aladdin. No one’s as good as Robin Williams in Aladdin. Give it up.”

    **

    AU: Eddie is an animator and Richie is an up-and-coming comedian who voices the character in a movie he’s working on. They fall in love.
