  1. Summary

    AU where DXS is a dystopian nightmare, with a branch known as the Department for Enforcement of Regulation of Disciplinary Infractions that oversees errors and misbehaviour committed by DXS agents and punishes them accordingly. There are four tiers of infractions, and the discipline tiers escalate along with them, but at the core, the concept is simple: an agent does something wrong, an agent gets beaten with a leather strap.

    The rules and procedures are explained to those employed by DXS in a booklet they are all given upon signing on to the organization: the Handbook on the Regulation of Disciplinary Infractions.

A lot going on.

    Summary

    Therapy had been the Fifth’s idea. Apparently the effort of dicking around with locked doors all day was putting too much pressure on them, and Abigail was a “licensed therapist”, whatever the hell that meant. Gideon still hadn’t figured that one out yet. Could have been normal on other houses (like salads, or having an “afternoon”) and the bony old assholes back home on the Ninth just hadn’t bothered.

    Or, when Gideon Nav goes to group therapy, she learns new things about Harrow, Silas, and herself.
