    Summary

    Okay, so the thing was, Gideon had always been shit at plans. She knew that. Everyone knew that, but this--she really didn’t think it would be this hard! Gideon’s voice was like the least memorable thing about her. Bargaining her voice for a well-shaped set of human legs--that really should have worked in her favor.

    Summary

    It was hard to tell what was worse: feeling the full warmth of those unguarded honey eyes fall on Harrow, or watching them narrow in recognition and contempt, their warmth now hotter with something else. 

    “What can I get you?” It has been at least four years since Harrow last heard the voice of Gideon Nav, but it was still as familiar as her right hand.

    Harrow raised an eyebrow. “Have you met Her Divine Highness?”

    “What’s she like?”

    “Oh, she’s a huge douche.”

    Her Divine Highness Gideon Prim is throwing a ball. Harrowhark doesn’t go to the ball looking for love—but what if love finds her?

    Summary

    It isn’t that being caught exercising in the halls is actually embarrassing; Camilla knows that there’s more to health than medicine, and keeping fit requires lifting more than just books. What’s embarrassing, what’s down-to-the-marrow humiliating, is that she actually has the time to exercise. She should be helping her necromancer achieve lyctorhood, not finding exciting new places to do squats.

    It’s some small consolation, perhaps, that there’s at least one other cavalier whose necromancer has seen fit to turn her loose on Canaan House without a duty to fulfill. That the other cavalier is Gideon is, well, less consoling.

    ---

    In an alternate universe where things are progressing as the Emperor Undying intended, Camilla and Gideon find themselves with a lot more time on their hands and a lot less supervision from their necromancers. This could be the start of a beautiful bromance.
