    Summary

    Gideon Nav, the greatest running back Milvian Bridge Academy has ever seen, has been prophesied by the Pope of the Eternal City to be a great warrior, destined for sainthood, in the Crusades. But when she has a run in with a real necromancer while scavenging the Old City for texts as part of a deal with her sister-by-decree, Harrowhark Nonagesimus, the bishop's daughter and a potential Lazarean, she ends up haunted. Will she be able to discover her parents secrets, figure out how to do a derivative, and stop her haunting? Or will she be purged, killed by a climate catastrophe, or expelled?

    This is a cyberpunk catholic military dictatorship high school AU taking place in a world where The Big Thing didn't happen.

    Summary

    It’s her second year at Canaan University, and Gideon is finally coming into her own. She has a full athletic scholarship, best friends Pal and Cam, and a found family with the Pents and Terrible Teens. She shares a locker room with her hot teammate Corona, who even knows her name.

    Gideon is happy.

    And then she meets her new roommate, Harrowhark Nonagesimus, who is the absolute worst. (The feeling is decidedly mutual.)

    It certainly doesn’t seem so to either at first, but this is going to turn out to be a good thing for both of them.

    Eventually.

    Summary

    "As she murmurs, reassurances, scriptures, soul work, the doctor stands in judgement. When the last breath finally leaves them, she marks down time of death, closes their eyes, and directs the nurses to start work stripping the bed—they need every open space they have. Bodies don’t rest long here, living or dead."

    Summary

    22-year-old Gideon Nav lives and works at Canaan House and Stables in the beautiful valley town of Dominicus. There's rumours that John Gaius wants to buy the property and demolish it, along with selling all the horses. They can't possibly let that happen!

    You know all those teen dramas with secret crushes and gossip and friendships and betrayals that are the 'absolute worst', based at horse stables/barns? This is that, but with our TLT babies. Expect runaway horses, Gideon being bossed around by spoiled rich 'kids' and a big fundraiser to save the property! And is Ianthe Tridentarius up to something?

    Summary

    You had told Alfred, desperately, that you needed to be his brother, or else you would die with the weight of your need.

    &

    Alecto tells you the truth: you are God's second Resurrection. He wants to cup you in his hands; he wants to eat you.

    &

    You will not yield to the jagged bones of this Earth and its circumstance. You will not become the puppet of Cristabel, nor of God. You will take a dagger, and you will become a monster to rival Cassiopeia before her coffee, a monster to end yourself, a rabid revenant to fulfill the hunger of your want, your need, your love.

    Summary

    Harrowhark Nonagesimus is on the cusp of the biggest promotion of her career, the job she's dreamed of for years. All that changes at a moment's notice, when Mr. Gaius sentences the company to an impossible expectation. Harrow is expected to work in frustrating conditions, expected to conquer a place which haunts her deeply. She's expected to work through her grief for Gideon Nav, her wife who was lost months ago.

    Gideon Nav is on the edge of her sanity. Every day she fights for survival, stuck in an impossible place with impossible odds. She has her sunglasses and her prototype energy shield, but none much else. Certainly not the gorgeous two-hander she left behind in her old life, and certainly not a way back home to the love of her life, Harrowhark Nonagesimus.

    Summary

    Augustine stares out past the lichen-eaten railing and down into the water. Sleep, my ass. I have slept and slept and slept all my memorable life. It doesn’t take the slog away, nor the cold, nor the feeling that time is a creature of opportunity and you are a carcass by the side of a long and miserable road.

    At last, he becomes conscious of his wallowing, to which there is only one proper response:

    Fuck this. I am finding Alfred, and I am changing something, anything - God knows stagnancy kills.

    Or: the Lyctorhood of the Quinque brothers.

    Summary

    Due to societal pressure (and an unfortunate friendship with Ianthe), Harrow ends up accompanying her girlfriend to the stupid birthday party the twins are throwing. One too many drinks and an idiotic, dare-related midnight walk on the roof later, she finds herself in the hospital.

    While Harrow struggles to cope with her vulnerability being on display for everyone to see, injury-prone Gideon doesn’t take being on the flip side of that particular story very well.

    Reading the other fics in this series isn’t required to understand this story, but they can provide a bit more context.

    Summary

    Gideon remembers the first time they stuck Harrow on the ice, in her matching puffy pants and coat and her sombre black helmet, like shoving a cranky baby rook out of the nest. She fell down immediately, and when none of the adults seemed about to step in and right her, Gideon did it herself. She could skate backward by then, so she took Harrow’s mittened hands and tugged her along in slow, endless circles. She remembers—or thinks she remembers, maybe it’s just her mind filling in from later examples—Harrow’s furrowed, pinched expression of furious concentration. She always hated needing help. More than she hated Gideon, maybe. But that day, for the few hours it took her to get her blades under her, she scowlingly accepted both.

    Or, the figure skating AU that happens when I binge watch too much Grand Prix coverage.

    Summary

    The day that it happens, Mercymorn breaks her favorite coffee mug.

    It’s frankly, an absurd detail to focus on, but it sticks inside her mind for centuries, nevertheless. Her world shatters apart, and her favorite sunflower yellow mug cracks and splinters into clay shards.

    The color yellow still makes her queasy, millennia later.

    Summary

    Mercymorn and Augustine rob a mortuary. Which is different than graverobbing, Mercy insists. Augustine, in turn, insists that that's just semantics and they are, in fact, graverobbing.

    Summary

    Harrow Nova wakes up haunted.

    That's not the problem. The problem is that her dead necromancer won't stop narrating their life for five minutes.
