    Summary

    A tournament to decide the next Imperial heir? Bitch, please.

    It wasn’t even the heirs that would be fighting, they got to stay all safe and wrapped up in the stands while their cavaliers did the real work of duking it out in the ring.

    How did that make sense? The heir with the best taste in cavaliers gets the throne? Gideon’s not sure how that qualifies someone to rule a kingdom but she’s also not sure what’s actually involved in ruling a kingdom, and anyway it’s not like she’s the one who might end up on the throne, so whatever.

    She gets to hit things with her sword, spend some time outside the oppressive darkness of Drearburh, and maybe possibly impress a Cohort officer enough that they whisk her away to be a hero on the front lines. What more could she ask for.

    “Griddle.”

    Oh, right. She could ask not to be stuck in a rolling crematorium with the princess of darkness.

    A Medieval AU with no necromancy, a bit of sword fighting, and lots of sexual tension. There is a ball, but it’s not that ball.

    Summary

    As punishment for a particularly scathing end to her junior year of high school, Gideon Nav is sent to Camp Mithraeum: A sprawling collection of empty fields, wood cabins halfway rotted to hell, and a lake which glitters gorgeously in the sun, sitting approximately at the edge of the universe. Gideon, loudly gay and loudly atheist, is hoping to make this experience as miserable for everyone else as it is for her. Just when she thinks that bible camp couldn't possible get any worse, she's partnered up with her greatest enemy, Harrowhark Nonagesimus.
