    Summary

    Cristabel was a fanatic. Cristabel was an idiot. Cristabel was beloved by all who looked upon her. Cristabel was the best part of Mercy. Now Cristabel is dead, and all that's left for Mercy to do is babysit some halfway-insane infant who reminds her far too much of a mirror.

    a study of mercy's failed mentorship of harrow, featuring dead girls and undead ghosts and some heavy projecting.

    Summary

    Ten thousand years ago, the world ended and was reborn by the grace of the Resurrector, the King Undying. His most devoted disciples have gathered at Canaan House to worship in thanks, rebuild the wrecked world—and plumb the depths of their newfound necromantic skills.

    There is no way this could possibly go wrong.

    Summary

    Mercymorn could never say no to Cristabel. But then again, she never wanted to anyway.

    Mercymorn and Cristabel discover siphoning by accident while fighting G1deon and Pyrrha. Mercymorn makes it up to Cristabel later that night. (Three Mercymorn/Cristabel scenes, loosely linked.)

     

    Thank you so much to harrowgazing on Twitter for a really lovely, informative thread on orgasm hormones! It shaped this piece.

    Summary

    Okay, so Ianthe and Mercymorn have sex. But mostly, it's through Mercy's terrifying and hot anatomy powers. It includes a lot of yearning, a lot of contemplating lost or inaccessible loves, and also Mercy majorly fucking/ fucking with Ianthe.

    I listed "dubious consent" mostly because Mercymorn and Ianthe are very, very bad at communication.

    The Saint of Joy looked at Ianthe with almost comical disinterest, though Ianthe knew (hoped?) that it was part of the show. She really hoped Mercymorn would not make her beg. She wanted to come, but also wasn’t sure how willing she was to humiliate herself more. This was enough. Ianthe half struggled upwards, but then Mercymorn was back on the bed, this time straddling her, knees spread and surrounding Ianthe’s hips. She placed her fingers on Ianthe’s neck, two fingers, like she was taking her pulse. Ianthe was frozen again, thank the Emperor. Ianthe did not want the choice. She did not want to be forced to choose between her dignity or her desire. Now she was stripped of agency, once again at the mercy of the other Lyctor.

    Summary

    This was the sum of their marriage, two drunks on their thirty-year-old couch watching Jeopardy, rehashing the same conversations over and over, but settling into one another at the end of the night.

    Modern AU character study where platonic-married Augustine & Mercymorn get drunk together and Mercymorn thinks a little too much about the past. Sad, loosely based off some Mountain Goats alpha couple songs, especially "Fault Lines" and "The Mess Inside" from All Hail West Texas. Oddly specific thing that I wrote mostly for myself but also for a few other people on Twitter after a TMG: The Locked Tomb conversation.

    Summary

    Everyone says not to bother Mercy before she’s had her morning coffee. It’s nothing to do with caffeine: every night she dreams that Cristabel is still alive, and every morning she has to confront the reality of her death all over again.

    Summary

    Mercymorn the First, Second Saint to serve God after the Resurrection, considers her relationship with her physical body over the first five thousand years of her Lyctorhood and how it has changed her. She carries the burden of grief from Cristabel's death. This is my first time writing Mercymorn; I wanted to experiment with how grief and anatomy intersect.

    If I have missed a tag, please let me know and I will update them! This fic does not have graphic or explicit depictions of sex, rape, or violence, but it does briefly mention both consensual sex, dubious consent (brief mention/description of sex that characters maybe can't say no to because of the implications of saying no to God), and canon-typical violence. Please be aware.

    Summary

    Oh, that topic of Desire: a strange, dead planet. It’s just that—well! The last person who moved inside her is dead, her eyes stolen inside of Mercymorn’s reflection every single day, but besides that—John is too skittish, too reverent, his hands on her waist with an awed shyness that doesn’t suit him.

    [Mercy/John/Augustine, the night of the heist.]

    Summary

    Pyrrha had moved in close and tipped Mercy’s chin up in a way that emphasized how helpless Mercy was without her necromancy. A wild, reckless desire to let Pyrrha take over beat in her chest like the wings of an ostrich trying to take flight. She yearned to shed the responsibility of trying to untangle the monster they had served for ten thousand years and be, once again, only one soul under someone else’s command.


    Somehow, Mercymorn survives everything that happened in HARROW THE NINTH. Commander Wake finds her and brings her to Pyrrha, where they must both come to terms with being alive. By fucking about it.

    Summary

    As she fell, she cupped your face as she was so fond of doing, and she held your fretting hands by your fingertips, and she smeared her precious blood like anointing oil on your knuckles and on your palms and on your wrists and on your lips, her final benediction as she died on the cold marble floor in your arms. Smiling. Like she was going home to God. She had died for your indelible sin and you had spit and cursed and sobbed, foetal, over her broken body as if you could bring her back if only you wept hard enough. 

    or, Mercymorn has a headache.

    Summary

    In the very early days at Canaan House, Cristabel decides it's time to let Mercymorn know how she feels, in a way that even this most oblivious of necromancers can't ignore.

    She can't do it alone, but Pyrrha is here to help.

    Summary

    “Yes, yes! Cris-mas. How merry. It is done. The first of the holidays in dedication to you disciples. Each of you will have one to your name. I expect preparations to commence immediately. Mercy, take the helm.”
    “How shall we prepare?” you asked with resignation, pen at the ready. You only had eight days.
    “How should I know? I’m only God.” For that you began to plan your retribution.
    -
    Or: Mercy assumes the monumental task of coordinating Cristabel's birthday with help from her fellow disciples. Will the reason for the season keep her sane? A seasonally-appropriate Canaan House comedy of errors.
