    Summary

    In the late summer of 1981, Harrow Nova had just dropped out of Leeds University and Gideon Nav’s visa was about to expire and they both owed several months’ back rent. Unemployed and desperate, they did what everyone unemployed and desperate in the North of England was doing, and started a band.

     

    1980s post-punk absolutely-not-goth band AU, in which Harrow occupies an Andrew Eldritch shaped space, told through a series of interviews, by an author MUCH too familiar with Sisters of Mercy trivia.

    Summary

    In Drearbrurh, the sight of a sword to Gideon’s head or a hand around her throat might have been cause for celebration. Hell, had Harrow both the opportunity and spine for it, she might have driven the sword through Gideon’s skull herself, an effective solution to the countless problems wrapped up in Gideon’s sloppy robes and sloppier face paint. Instead, Harrow pressed her outstretched hand into that vulnerable place at the base of Gideon’s skull, digging her fingers in tight to prevent them from lashing out.

    Her own voice came unexpectedly, rising from some unknown depth. Harrow said, “Your cavalier drew on my cavalier.”

    A Gideon the Ninth Chapter 7 rewrite, written from Harrow’s POV, because I am obsessed with this scene.

    Summary

    “Gideon,” said Palamedes with the patience of a saint, “the rules are the rules. It wouldn’t be fair if I changed them just for you. In a well ordered society—

    “It’s not a well ordered society.” Gideon knew where that was going, and she certainly didn’t have the time. She slapped a slip of paper onto the counter and said, “It’s secret santa.”

    And there lay the source of all of her problems: handwritten in a script so neat and precise it could have been printed, Harrowhark Nonagesimus. And everyone knew that Gideon and Harrow hated each other.

    So what if they had started taking smoke breaks together? So what if Harrow had helped her fold shirts just last week, in a store she didn’t even work in? So what if Harrow had laughed as the two of them did Jagerbombs at Palamedes’ Halloween party, the glint of her fake fangs flashing invitingly in the orange party lights? They hated each other. The two of them would both work in the mall until one of them inevitably strangled the other with her bare hands, and Gideon wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Except that lately, Gideon had started to like Harrow.

    Which made that slip of paper a fucking problem.
