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?

    Summary

    It's been eight years since Harrowhark left her hometown behind – and with it, her high school alternative metal band, Perfect Lyctorhood. She's been entirely content to forget. Honestly, she barely remembers anyone's names anymore (apart from her bestfriend, Palamedes, of course).
    Her perfect fantasy of forgetting comes crashing down when Palamedes calls in a favor that finds Harrow back in Perfect Lyctorhood, staring right at the girl who broke her heart and cast her aside.

    Summary

    Once upon a time, her great-great-grandmother, who had herself lived an unnaturally long life, had told Harrow that their family was descended from that one wicked snake, that they were more serpent than human. At the time, Harrow had thought she was rambling, just a senile old woman weaving mindless tales to amuse herself.

    Harrow knows better now.

    Summary

    The Ninth has been defeated. In a lightning strike, Blood of Eden has taken total control of Drearburh, holding the entire congregation hostage as a bargaining chip against the empire. The Reverend Daughter, facing the total annihilation of her people, is left with only one choice: she must seduce the commander of the occupying forces. Little does she know that said commander, Lieutenant Hunk, is a scarlet-haired beefcake with a charming smile and brilliant golden eyes, who's going to turn her calculated political maneuver into more of a romantic entanglement.

    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 removed her earrings, Ianthe joined Harrow on the couch, asking, "What're you reading?" When Harrow turned the cover toward her, she wrinkled her nose. "The Bell Jar?" She sneered. "No wonder you're depressed."

    "I'm not depressed," Harrow said, and was instantly aware of the fact that it was utter bullshit. Her parents were dead, Gideon had dumped her, and Ianthe was the only one who seemed to care that she was here. Depressed wasn't a strong enough word.

    Consider this a modern dark academia ballet AU. Very The Secret History meets Tiny Pretty Things or Flesh and Bone. It's dark, but not as dark as it seems.

    Summary

    Failing numerous times to escape the Ninth, Gideon gave up the ghost and settled into her forced servitude. The Emperor made no request for the Houses to attempt the Lyctor Trials. Gideon’s miserable life went on in the Ninth House, plateauing into a tedious rinse and repeat cycle of waiting for the seemingly unattainable sweet release of death. The monotony is broken when someone makes it their mission to murder the Ninth House scion. Somehow this becomes Gideon’s problem.

    As if it was a universal rule, Gideon’s pitiful life gets worse in the drill shaft. (Get it? The Ninth is a pit and it sucks- whatever).

    Summary

    It'd been two years since Gideon Nav gathered her wine key and her gaming license and escaped The Locked Tomb, a speakeasy-style cocktail bar managed by the hateful Harrowhark Nonagesimus. Now, dealing tables at The Mithraeum Hotel & Casino, things were really looking up. So when Gideon scored a date with the most beautiful showgirl in the Gilded Halls of Ida, the last thing she expected was to wake up married to her old nemesis and former coworker.

    The story starts the night of Gideon's date and alternates between the events leading up to the wedding and the weeks that follow as Gideon tries to navigate life married to someone who claims to want nothing more than to forget she exists.
