    Summary

    “I mean. Like, you know, a date?” Gideon said. “We could get coffee or something? Get to know each other."

    Harrow’s cheeks colored. “I don’t appreciate being mocked.”

    “I’m not making fun,” Gideon said, frowning. “Like if you don’t want to, that’s cool, whatever. But I’m serious.”

    “Oh.” Harrow’s hands curled into desperate fists at her sides. Her eyes rounded. A little crease tucked itself between them, which almost distracted Gideon from what she said next. “Oh, that’s so much worse.”

    ---

    When Gideon decides to ask out Harrowhark Nonagesimus, a snappy little goth she can't get out of her head, she expects to be soundly rejected and to move on with her life. She definitely doesn't expect to wind up in a duel for Harrow's hand. Turns out if Gideon wants the privilege of hot goth gf, she'll have to defeat all of Harrow's evil exes first.

    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

    'au where Gideon wore her real sword to breakfast on like Day 2 of Canaan House because fuck Harrow amiright? and from across the dining hall Abigail Pent was like, “oh my god that sword is possessed. That sword is VERY possessed.” *walking over* “Did you know that your sword is possessed by literally THE angriest - I’m gonna talk to her. Is anyone else going to - I’m not waiting for an answer, I’m talking to this ghost.”'

    I moved the timing around a bit - this takes place immediately after chapter 14 of Gideon the Ninth.
