    Summary

    Harrowhark had 3 things she would always be grateful for: her two cousins, and her son.

    Everything else was…fine. Work? Fine. Dealing with the gossipy PTA moms? Her marriage? Not great, but it was fine.

    But her son’s big, ginger soccer coach? That butch is FINE.

     


    What discretion compared to new discoveries? What’s loyalty and faithfulness when you’ve just found exactly where you belong?

    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.

    You kissed John like the animal you had become, and he responded with the fealty of a child, and then with the force of a god, and then with the passion of the abandoned.

    Summary

    Literally just a collection of the #TLTMicroFics challenges on Twitter. I started late, but I'm gonna keep trying my best to keep it going. Might go back and do old ones if I feel the whimsy.

    Content will depend on the week's challenges. They will all be short-ish, probably, but won't technically fit the 'microfic' term because I am too long-winded for just 100 words.

    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

    "You know I had to do it to them," John mumbles.

    He misses the beach. The real beach. The current one is mostly soil with a lacy veneer of nuclear ash, clammy and streaky and hilariously radioactive, which is a real bummer when he thinks about it too hard. But the twenty-five meter sea level rise that came when all the freshwater ice finished melting around the mid-century mark ate away at the shoreline, rolled in between the skyscrapers on a new tide, swallowed up all the people who couldn't afford to move anywhere else. Have you seen the rent rates lately?

    And then John accidentally'd the entire nuclear stockpile of the planet Earth.

    Summary

    I always loved the way you spoke.

    - Do you think I speak as you do, as a man does?

    I think you speak like the best man in the world.

    - I am the sum of all the best men and all the worst men. My voice is theirs, and the voice of the rocks, and the sea, and the life.

    And I want to drink that voice up. I want to drink it up like my first clean water after the fallout.

    Summary

    This is the story of how I died.
    Don't worry, it's actually a very fun story, and the truth is it's not even mine. This is the story of necromancy - the rise and fall of an empire - and most importantly, of a girl. The greatest necromancer of her time, Harrowhark Nonagesimus. It's a long story (and a good one) and it starts, of all things, with the last flower of the kingdom.
