    Summary

    Gideon said: “I had a talk with the Fifth —” (Harrow rolled her eyes at this.) “— and Lady Pent agrees that there’s something dodgy about this place, so I really don’t want either of us to be running around without proper wards.”
    “Get to the point.”
    Gideon grimaced. “Ghost wards have to break the skin.”

    Summary

    Standing on the poisoned ground of Chernobyl, Boris and Ulana watch helplessly as the car drives away from the makeshift courthouse. They watch with their hearts in their throats and their stomachs in their shoes as the KGB drive away with their comrade in tow. Not "comrade" in the Party sense of the word. They'd perverted it. If telling a truth that potentially saved lives was punished like this, they'd perverted it. They perverted everything.

    But what else was there to call it? They'd never dared name the strange shape that had formed around the three of them. Between them. Through them. A year in the crucible of Chernobyl had changed them inexorably, as the accident would change everything for kilometers around it and for years to come.

    And now they were split asunder, just as cruelly as they had been fused together.

    "Where are they taking him?" Ulana asks, staring up at Boris with wide, lost eyes. She looks shell-shocked. Horrified. I did this,her face says. I told him to tell the truth at all costs, and now he's going to pay. Just him. It should be me.

    Summary

    ‘They brought soup, Nonagesimus. There is literally nothing nefarious about soup. They’re being nice.’ Gideon crossed her arms across her chest, even though Harrow couldn’t see her. ‘I know you normally live off cobwebs and the souls of the innocent, but would it kill you to let someone help you out just once?’

    The Ninth House has the flu, and Magnus brought soup.

    OR

    These poor kids have it rough and you cannot tell me Abigail and Magnus' substitute parental figure instincts did not kick in within five minutes of realising that

    (There's some vomiting in this sorry)

    Summary

    What Harrowhark wasn’t doing - what she needed to be doing - was sleeping.

    The undignified "skronk" that emitted at that moment from the foot of the bed was a sharp reminder that her cavalier was having no such difficulty.

    Summary

    Harrowhark Nonagesimus was born with wings.

    Unfortunately, Gideon Nav was too, and Gideon's wings were a problem.
