    Summary

    Gideon Nav loves the Renaissance Faire. It’s her second home, and during Faire season it is her only home. She had been performing since she was a child all thanks to her parents. A recent high school graduate, Gideon was thrilled to finally work full time at the Faire. She had played minor roles as a knight for the past few years, but getting a major role with lines was her dream.

    Then members of a different Faire join Gideon's precious Canaan Faire while theirs is undergoing renovations. The Dominicus Faire is filled with nothing but rich prep school kids, and Gideon's longtime rival Harrowhark Nonagesimus. To make matters worse, this season involves the knights being bound to the actors portraying the king's royal advisors. Which means that a knight and advisor will spend the whole Faire day by each other's sides.

    And guess who Gideon Nav is stuck with.

    Summary

    Okay, so the thing was, Gideon had always been shit at plans. She knew that. Everyone knew that, but this--she really didn’t think it would be this hard! Gideon’s voice was like the least memorable thing about her. Bargaining her voice for a well-shaped set of human legs--that really should have worked in her favor.

    Summary

    Gideon Nav is just an ordinary person, living an ordinary life, in an ordinary town. What *isn't* ordinary is the night that she discovers a mysterious young woman digging through her garbage. What *really* isn't ordinary is that young woman having the power to reanimate dead bone.

    And the web of conspiracy and danger that the young woman draws her into? Well, that's just *hella* not ordinary.

    Summary

    It figures that the only college with the badass Cavalier program is also the college that Harrow Nonagesimus wants to attend. Oh well. Campus is big, right? She'll probably never see that pointed little face again.

    Summary

    Harrowhark Nonagesimus is a gifted young woman, applying for Classics at Oxford's Canaan College. She is also a practioner of magic, applying for the more secretive Thaumaturgic program, and is willing to do whatever it takes to pass. Including having Gideon pretend to be her familiar, despite their long, awful history together.

    But Gideon is not her familiar, and she is not any practioner. She is a diabolist, and if she is discovered it will mean far worse fates than simple failure. And can she really trust her fate to Gideon, when Gideon is a demon?

    Summary

    Harrow Nova always dreamed of becoming the cavalier primary of the Ninth House, despite her deep and unshakeable hatred of the Reverend Daughter. When the Emperor calls upon his houses in an hour of desperate need, she may finally get her chance. Adventure, however, proves far more bizarre than Harrow had anticipated.

    Summary

    "She pointed serenely to a spot next to her seat and Gideon obligingly squatted there on her haunches. Dulcinea was breathing a little harder. She was wearing a filmy, foam-coloured dress and Gideon could see her ribs expand beneath it, like a shocked animal’s."

    Summary

    Turnabout's fair play in love and war. That means it's probably legal in whatever the fuck Harrow and Gideon are doing. (Or: Gideon gets the necro-flu.)

    Summary

    "The hard shine of it and the suppressed agony of triumph in the back of Gideon's head made her eyes water, and she was filled with a weird pride that was all her own. Holy shit. Perpetual bone. Harrow had actually cracked it.

    She was too busy admiring her necromancer to catch the thick rope of vertebrae that looped around her waist and cinched tight."

    Gideon is proud of Harrowhark. She's too busy fighting off a 10,000 year old murderous bone wizard to realize that Harrowhark is proud of her, too.

    A retelling of chapter 36 of Gideon the Ninth, from Harrow's point of view.

    Summary

    Cytherea is waiting for you at the River. She’s got a little boat tied to a stake at the water’s edge, and she’s wearing a frankly ridiculous sunhat. She waves you down as you approach, as if there’s any chance of you missing her.

    “Well” she says, smiling her million-watt smile, “you fucked that one up rather spectacularly.”

    “You’re one to talk.” You snap. “You got murdered by a toddler with a bone fetish.”

    “I missed you too, Mercy.” Cytherea says, and rises up on her tiptoes to kiss both your cheeks. “Now come along, we’ve got a very busy afterlife ahead of us.”

    Summary

    This time, you didn’t hesitate before reaching for her, before pulling her down on top of you and crushing your mouth against hers the way you might have crushed flower petals between your fingers. You were tired of waiting.

    Cyth-as-Dulcinea and Gideon get busy.
