    Summary

    There is, however, a slight complication: Harrow is compromised. If she were to dial back the repression and do a little soul-searching, she might even say that she’s in love. She’s in love with Gideon Nav and it’s the sort of love that’s like a shot to the heart, like the burst of adrenaline needed to lift a car from the curb, like the bright shock of coffee spilled over her hand; it’s the sort of love that drives a person to the ends of the earth, or else- barring the need for anything a little more drastic- the Wendy’s down the street at two in the morning.

    Summary

    Your dreams are the only chance I get to be separate from you, to see you. I... I don't think you remember them in the morning. You don’t seem to remember me at all. You pause, sometimes, but I can never tell what you're thinking or feeling.

    I never realized you had such an imagination, Nonagesimus. Some of them seem like you could have pulled them right out of my comics. (Don’t even try to tell me you haven’t read them, I know you used to go through my stuff. Maybe my soul being tucked in with yours is rubbing off on you too.) Some of them seem like a perfectly regular life in a world that definitely isn’t ours. And others are more familiar, our lives but a little to the left.

    (remember chapters 40-42 of htn? yeah i shoved it in my bag and sprinted into the night. 9 different AUs. one lovely comic. have fun!)

    Summary

    Gideon’s probably going to be eviscerated by revenants or impossible constructs in the morning anyway, so being killed by Harrow for making assumptions or crossing a line - that was until a few hours ago a comfortably wide chasm complete with caution tape and big warning signs - doesn’t seem so scary.

    She dips her face recklessly, and kisses the bitch right on the lips, and waits to die.
