    Summary

    Home economics. Gideon had, rather wrongfully, determined that this might be one of the few classes that might actually teach her something useful about the world. Taxes, resumes, the kind of boring things that might eventually carry her into that mythical realm of adulthood that her teachers were constantly on her case about. So far, she had learned how to gouge her finger up trying to sew a button onto a coat, and she had learned that if you fucked up really badly, a cute girl might band-aid it up for you.

    Home ec taught Gideon another vital life rule, just minutes later: life isn’t fair.

    Because Harrowhark Nonagesimus was holding a baby.

    __________________________________________________________________________

    In which Gideon Nav — high school junior, lady-killer, rugby star extraordinaire — finds herself raising a (creepy, possibly haunted) baby doll with her greatest enemy, Harrowhark Nonagesimus. Between trying not to fail the class, kill one another, or inflict lasting childhood trauma on a robot, the two might just end up closer than either of them had ever imagined.

    Summary

    “You see, Griddle, I need an heir. A necromantic heir. You’re going to give me that heir, Nav. We have almost five years. That’s time enough for five, six children? Seven if we get another one going before I leave. Thank the Emperor omegas are so fertile. Odds are good that in that time, you’ll have at least one who’s a necromancer.”

    The summons from the Emperor arrives, effective in five years' time once all the heirs are above 18. Alpha Harrow realizes she needs a necromantic heir, and omega Gideon is her only way of getting one. Gideon wants nothing to do with this, but what Harrow wants, Harrow will get. Gideon is in for a godawful five years.

    MIND THE TAGS. This is a very dark fic.

    Summary

    Harrow stared at the golden eyes, her mind filling with a warm buzz and melodic hum. Her brain was a massive generator, constantly writhing and whining, but those beautiful eyes melted through like lava, reducing her to a drooling, staring moron. The glasses were replaced, and the buzzing cut off.

    Harrow looked over to Cam who was pulling on her stitching, a nervous habit she supposed. “Wow,” was all she could say.

    Cam cocked an eyebrow, the exposed bolt on her neck sparking a bit with the action. “See what we mean? She didn’t even look at you and you were caught by it.”

    “What is she?” Harrow asked, her voice returning to its normal ice.

    Cam seemed to pause at that. “Gideon is just, incredibly powerful.”
    ------
    Harrowhark is a vampire, but that’s never been an issue before. Until a group of humans attacked her, beating her bloody. Now her parents have decided being in the general public isn’t safe, and they’re sending her to a special boarding school for ghouls. Zombies, gorgons, and more inhabit the halls of Canaan High. So does the headmaster’s mysterious and beautiful daughter. So does endless mystery, and dark secrets that should probably stay dead.
