    Summary

    "Why did this music have to be so unmatched. Sure, it sounded unpolished and the bass player seemed to be an absolute clown who had no passion and no idea what he was doing. But FUCK. This had to be the next big thing in the scene. Gideon had impeccable taste and this music? Fucking delicious. Unfortunately, it was impossible for Gideon to support this band. Amazing as they were, their lead singer was a big time bitch, who had made Gideon’s absolutely miserable catholic school experience a living nightmare."

    Or: A story about what it's like to join your favourite band, when said band is led by your childhood nemesis.

    Summary

    Childhood enemies Gideon and Harrow haven’t seen each other in over a decade. When Gideon finds herself jobless and nearly homeless after moving to the city of Dominicus, she finds new friends and support working at the Pent’s cafe as a barista. Harrowhark, meanwhile, is feeling lonely now that her life is more stable in her career as a pathologist, and when her coworker Palamedes reaches out she decides meeting for coffee at the Pent's new cafe to discuss medical research might be just the amount of socialization she needs.

    It’s just coffee, what could go wrong?

    When the Reverend Daughter Harrowhark Nonagesimus dies transforming Cytherea’s blood cancer into bone cancer, she leaves three people behind.

And when Gideon Nav disappears in the aftermath of the battle, she leaves one Lyctor behind.

    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.

    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

    Answering the age old question: what if Camilla Hect was clinically horny.
    There is Nurse Kink there is Pal in the little nurse outfit. There is Pyrrha "daddy" Dve.
    There is not much plot but that's okay. Will probably end up with only two parts but who knows.
    Part one set before the events of Gideon the Ninth.
    Part two set during the events of Nona the Ninth.

    Summary

    Gideon Nav (28, no job, kind of spiraling) lands the audition of a lifetime with The Locked Tomb, an indie band hoping to enter a prestigious music program and earn themselves a record deal. Which would be awesome, if it didn't mean having to deal with her childhood nemesis straight out of the worst little town in Texas.

    Modern-day Texas AU.

    Summary

    “What’s with the sword theme?” She asks.
    “Aiglamene likes swords.” The walls of Scabbards are leaden with them, replicas of swords, pictures of swords, a suit of armor off in a corner holding–you guessed it–a sword.
    “So why not call the bar ‘Swords’?”
    “Well,” Gideon is only a little delighted that she’s asked this. “Imagine a sword is a dick, then a scabbard must be a–”
    “Ah.”
    “‘Pussys’ would be too on the nose for a lesbian bar, so Scabbards it is.” Gideon leans forward, hands on the counter and a conspiratorial tone in her voice. “You do know you’re in a lesbian bar, right?”
    “Yes, Griddle. I have eyes and critical thinking skills.” Harrow takes another too-big drink.
    “I didn’t know nuns went to lesbian bars.” Gideon says, to be a shit.

    Or: I was just gonna write a fun little thing about Gideon being a bartender and a drummer because I find both of those things attractive, and then 2k of tragic catholic guilt attached itself to Harrow like a revenant, so shit got angsty.
    There'll be porn in later chapters, I promise.

    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

    “You said.” She can’t. She cannot. Camilla wants to say, please go back to reading your book now, please do not look at me for at least the next 36 hours, please also teach me how to make a River bubble and then kill me so I can go sit in it and stare at the wall for a long time. This is not what she says, because she doesn’t say anything, and Palamedes is unfortunately concerned.

    “I said…?”

    It comes out of her like she’s been punched in the chest. “You said you adored me.”

    Summary

    Gideon and Harrow reunite after the events of Nona the Ninth. Spoilers for all three Locked Tomb books.
    Harrow has temporarily given up on her faith and is just pathetic and depressed and horny now. There are some flashbacks to before the events of Gideon the Ninth and possibly the duration of all three books. There will be sex scenes. Title is a quote by Hélène Cixous.

    Summary

    “Cloak. Veil. Silence,” Harrow said. “Once we reach our destination, you can go gallivanting off to the Cohort.” She got right up into Gideon’s face to drive the message home, voice lowered to a barely audible vicious whisper. “But you—will not—betray me.”

    “Go to hell,” Gideon spat back.


    Summoned by the Emperor Undying, Harrowhark Nonagesimus and her cavalier set off on a months-long journey over hostile deserts and treacherous terrain, in the hope of crossing the mountains before the snows set in, and time runs out.
