    Summary

    "Tilt your chin," the Reverend mother ordered, completely ignoring Harrow's protest. "Don't be difficult."

    "And stop making that face at me, Harrowhark. It's improper."

    Harrow didn't stop making that face, and had to resist the urge to make it worse. Her mother clicked her tongue and shook her head in exasperation, and instead focused on pressing a single dot on Harrow's right cheek, along her jaw, with the dark smudge of paint she had collected on her fingertip. Harrow looked into the mirror, knowing exactly what she'd find and still found herself flushing in embarrassment.

    "I don't understand why you do this," she said miserably before she could stop herself. "This is for babies, mother."

    [Or, Harrowhark Nonagesimus has been contending with a particular superstition all her life.]

    Summary

    "You’re a virgin,” Gideon said, testing it out. "Huh."

    Harrow didn’t like the sound of that huh. She knew Gideon’s noises, and that was a thoughtful, sinister huh. That was the same huh she’d made before putting canned tuna in Crux’s work boots.

    Her eyes narrowed. “What.”

    Gideon cocked her head to the side. “Is there a reason you’re waiting?” There was no judgement in the question— only genuine curiosity.

    Perhaps it was this that made Harrow more inclined to answer. “I don’t have the time to look for someone new,” She shrugged. “And my available pool is… somewhat limited.”

    “Well,” Gideon said, with just a hint of conspiracy in those glittering golden eyes. “If you ever want to change that, you have my number.”

    What? What?

    Harrow blinked. “What?”

    Or: the five times Gideon and Harrow successfully bone, and the one time they don't.

    Summary

    She feels like he’s peeling every layer of her being, one by one by one. And when he gets to her bones, he’ll find something she’ll never be able to run away from.

    “…you,” the stranger says, his hands flexing into fists. Unclenching again. “You are…”

    Gideon holds her breath. She doesn’t know why she thinks so, but it seems to her that Harrow does as well.

    The corner of the man’s lips twitches up in a smile.

    “You’re the spitting image of your mother.”

    Or: what if Pyrrha rescued Gideon from the Ninth as a child?
