    Summary

    You were dressed in black, then, your hair falling out of your knit cap to whip like a flag of war in the air spewing out from the vents, bright enough to make your people think of victory instead of blood. You had a gun in your hand and a knife strapped to your thigh, and you were laughing as you defended the ship we had invaded.


    Commander Pyrrha Dve of the Second House, head of Trentham Special Intelligence, cavalier trapped inside a Lyctor, fails to kill Commander Awake Remembrance Of These Valiant Dead of the Blood of Eden.

    Instead, she falls in love with her. It is not gentle.

    Summary

    Dark, rust-tattered, agonizingly gentle eyes meet your own. The sonorous face of Gideon the First is before you, but his dead lover has once again rented it out to completely devastate your otherwise-sound resolve. She begins to smile, and rather than enduring that shit again, you kiss her.

    Summary

    “What’s wrong with a little quid pro quo?" Ianthe asks, sweetly. "I’m giving you exactly what I know you need-” Harrow’s-no, Gideon's nostrils flare at that, “and in return you’re giving me something that I want very much.”

    Post-HtN Ianthe has missed her chance with Harrow, hopefully only until some later date. In the mean time, there's always the naïve cavalier who wears Harrow's body awkwardly, like it's two sizes too small. Gideon may play-act the immovable object at first, but Ianthe is at her core an unstoppable force, and she learned long ago precisely how to identify fault lines in solid rock.

    Summary

    Harrow, if you're still in there and able to follow my little updates, don’t worry. I’m not telling you this stuff because I intend to do anything (or let anyone else do anything) nefarious with your bits while you're away. If I did, it would mean conceding a major point to Ianthe. And if you don’t trust me purely by virtue of my own deep-seated ethical sensibilities, I hope you at least trust my pettiness enough that you can be sure I would never give Ianthe a chance to say ‘I told you so’.

    This work is a sequel to: first in the series, but can be read as a stand alone.

    Summary

    On the execrable scale of interactions involving Gideon Nav, this rises perilously close to excellence.

    -or-

    The burlesque AU with the hate-fucking.
