    Summary

    The only type of dating geologists are good at is radioactive carbon-dating. The rest goes completely over their heads.

    (Viktor and Yuuri are geology professors leading a field course in Western Australia. Chaos ensues.)

    Alfred shifts awkwardly. Looks at Viktor and Yuuri, and asks, “So, uh. Are you guys dating?”

    Yuuri greatly misunderstands, and Viktor panics.

    Of course we are, Yuuri says. Rather critically, he thinks to himself: why else would he be here, in the scorching, godforsaken heat, surrounded by a hundred kilos of rock, if not for the purpose of radiometric dating?

    Summary

    “You’re stupid if you think Canaan will hire you, Griddle,” Harrow says coolly.

    Gideon knows her chances are slim, she’s only eighteen, just about to graduate high school. Traversing is new, dangerous, and expensive. It’s unlikely that Canaan would waste the most important technology Earth has ever created in order to send out a teenager to one of Earth’s variants. There are people who are older, people who have done research on traversing, hell, people who have expressed interest in exploring other worlds. Gideon hasn’t. Not once. Not until it became a possible escape from Drearburh.

    ___

    A sci-fi AU where multiple universes exist, inspired by Micaiah Johnson's The Space Between Worlds.

    Summary

    There is an arm that isn’t supposed to be attached. There is a soul that is supposed to be attached but isn’t. The House appears to be in its usual degree of decay. Ianthe looks over at the other bed, and there she is: Corona, sleeping soundly. If Ianthe focuses really hard, she can hear Babs’ snoring in the room over too.

    An arm that shouldn’t be there. A soul that should.

    A house not demolished. A twin safe and sound.

    For lack of being able to think anything else, Ianthe whispers aloud, “What the fuck is going on?”

    -

    Or, alternatively: Ianthe figures out the true secrets of Lyctorhood while stuck in a time loop at Canaan House.

    Summary

    John Gaius never extended the invitations to Canaan House and never called for new Lyctors. Gideon Nav's ninetieth escape attempt was successful, and she enlisted in the Cohort and never heard from Harrowhark Nonagesimus again.

    Five years later, Captain Nav receives a distress call from the Ninth, and everything she's worked hard for is thrown into question.

    Title from Neko Case's "A Widow's Toast".
