    Summary

    When the Reverend Daughter Harrowhark Nonagesimus dies transforming Cytherea’s blood cancer into bone cancer, she leaves three people behind. When Camilla Hect dies by her own blade to save her necromancer one last time, she leaves two people behind. And when Gideon Nav disappears in the aftermath of the battle, she leaves one Lyctor behind.

    Three weeks later, Palamedes Sextus wakes up alone in the Erebos’ medical wing with a sword, innumerable unanswered questions, blank spaces where certain memories ought to be, and a new title—Palamedes the First.

    Summary

    “The woman is in a peony-coloured slip. She is taking the pins out of her hair. She is JOY, an acidic thing, citric and citrine. Sour frowns, tangerine pulp hair, liable to irritate in excessive quantities.”

    In advance of Dios Apate Major, the Saint of Patience scripts a seduction.

    Summary

    Harrow works her jaw silently back and forth.

    “I need you,” she grits out at length, “to help me find a body.”

    Gideon whistles, low and long, eyebrows rocketing up to her hairline. “Shit, what happened? You lose a prototype? They as good as me?”

    Never,” she hisses vehemently. “I would never.

    Nav.” Harrow snaps. “I need you to find—my—body.”

    Gideon Nav—amnesiac clone, company property, and undisputed sun-stare champion of corpse-android manufacturers, Tec9—gets the job offer of a lifetime:
    Find the CEO's errant body, abandoned for life as an AI Lyctor; earn her freedom in return.
    The only problem is, nobody, not even Harrowhark herself, knows where it is...and it might not be the only body people are looking for.

    Summary

    “I have been lax.” There’s activity in the hallway now — her ten minutes are almost up, and a few actors are trickling into the auditorium from their impromptu breaks. Harrow keeps her voice at a murmur. “I have allowed you far more freedom than anyone else — cast and crew included. I have tolerated your chronic lateness, the constant interruptions, your propensity for inappropriate jokes. I will not tolerate the existence of a subpar performance due to the simple fact that our fight coordinator refuses to show up.”

    By the end of the week, Harrow’s going to have a permanent injury from grinding her teeth this fucking much. She can feel it.

    Or: Harrow is an overworked stage manager doing her best to keep their university's production of Hamlet from falling apart during technical rehearsals, Gideon is missing fencing practice to serve as fight captain, and they've got quite a bit of mutual history to work out before opening night.

    Listen. LISTEN. As a Midwestern theatre kid who went through a major Hamlet phase before falling in love with the Locked Tomb series? This fic was literally TAILOR-MADE for me. An absolute delight, on literally every level; I CANNOT recommend highly enough
