    Summary

    “There’s something you need to know,” Harrow said to John and Mercymorn. She locked eyes with Gideon, holding her gaze firm.
    White-ringed eyes flicked between them, and a frown flickered on John’s face. “Alright.”

    “Well, it’s interesting that you’ve chosen to tell me about the visa application now,” Harrowhark said, turning to John and Mercymorn, “when Gideon only proposed last weekend.”

    John blinked. He looked between them. “Excuse me?”

    “I’m getting married,” Harrowhark said.

    “To who?” John asked.

    “To my assistant,” said Harrow, ignoring the choking, strangled noise of surprise Gideon made from the door. “To Gideon Nav. We’re engaged.” She paused, then stood. “Aren’t we, Griddle?”

    “No,” Gideon said, because she was the worst. “What the fuck?”

    Or: Harrowhark Nonagesimus is the youngest editor ever to run the Ninth House publishing company. But when Harrow violates the terms of her work visa, her only way to retain her job is to marry a US citizen— and who better than her assistant, Gideon Nav?

    Summary

    “what is this, anyway? dream? hallucination? something else?”

    “yep,” gideon says, completely unhelpful. “here’s the only part that i know: you’ve still got me rattling around in there somewhere,” she says, flicking harrow on the forehead. 

    they must have known each other very well, for her to do something so shameless—and apparently without any expectation whatsoever of getting obliterated into bone shards.

    Summary

    It was hard to tell what was worse: feeling the full warmth of those unguarded honey eyes fall on Harrow, or watching them narrow in recognition and contempt, their warmth now hotter with something else. 

    “What can I get you?” It has been at least four years since Harrow last heard the voice of Gideon Nav, but it was still as familiar as her right hand.

    Summary

    Harrow looks the same as ever; goth-y, and just a little bit pretentious in an expensively distressed black sweater that looks like Dracula’s least-favourite curtain trying to strangle her, and also like she hasn’t slept in days. Admittedly, it’s hard to tell past what Gideon estimates is four-day-old eye-shadow smudged on thick and tarry. Her profile is thin and severe, hunched over her phone, which is lit up brighter than God’s phone, for some fucking reason, throwing a bright blue line against her jaw, and bruisy skull-shadows over the rest of her face.
    She never did give a shit about saving battery.
    The IV, on the other hand, is new.
    Harrow looks exactly like she did two and a half years ago, except that she’s ensconced in a nest of wires and blip-ing monitors, on a saline drip, on a gurney, in the ER.

    When Gideon Nav gets a call that her ex-girlfriend, who never bothered to change her designated emergency contact, is in the hospital, she goes against her better judgement and responds. Everything after that just gets more complicated.
