    Summary

    I tried to imagine what it felt like to be holding something with those ridiculously small hands of yours, with your perfectly slim fingers and the total lack of muscles that were used to lifting nothing heavier than a bone or a pen on a good day. Thanks to your fucked up temporal lobe, I was too far down in the well to get full control of your body. But I only needed control of your hands, after all. Not even for long! Just long enough to bring the spoon to your mouth at least once.

    It sounded easy enough. Surely, I should be able to do that.

    …nothing happened. Nothing at all. You just sat there, completely unmoved, like I hadn’t just spent five minutes trying to hold hands with you. Damn it, Harrow, work with me here.

    Or: Gideon tries to help Harrow eat from the bottom of the well, because someone has to.

    Summary

    Gideon grimaced and made a decision. “Alright, come on. Let’s do the thing.”

    “The what?” Harrow said, sounding moderately disgusted.

    Gideon moved close to Harrow again and tapped her on the shoulder. “I’m going to help you, but I’m doing it to prove a point. And the point is that you’re not trapped here, you’re freaking out for nothing, and you’re unfairly trying to abandon me.”

    “That’s three points,” said Harrow.

    Summary

    Gideon no longer tried to hide herself or her blatant staring. Sometimes Harrow looked back, but mostly she averted her gaze in apparent disinterest. It infuriated Gideon. Years and years of snide comments, of telling on her for every misstep, of pretending to hold the moral high ground as she spit on Gideon, and she didn’t have the decency to give her the time of day. The next week, Gideon executed her plan. The barrier between them was as wide as a science building hallway and Gideon cleared it in four steps.

    Summary

    Gideon had always insisted that she was never scared of Harrowhark. Throughout all of their years at each others’ throats, Gideon maintained that it would have been laughably simple to break her spindly necromancer’s bird-boned body over one knee. But despite her determined bravado and her habit of laughing in the face of death (or in the face of the Reverend Daughter, which was about the same thing), some unshakeable part of Gideon couldn’t help but feel the cold knife of fear press into her lungs whenever she was reminded of Harrowhark’s ire.

    Or: 5 times Gideon was scared of Harrow, and 1 time Harrow was scared of Gideon.
