    Summary

    She remembers often that her mother used to talk as much as her father, especially in the early days of joining the Family. Always with an opinion, old Lara, about what they were doing, about what old Sergei was involving himself and them in, how much this was going to come back to bite them in the soft bits, the underbellies they all pretended were stainless steel rather than human and weak.

    Summary

    Jane could say anything now, or drop it altogether. She’s still not sure what Daria wants. If she’s even saying it because there’s something she wants, or just saying it because she feels like she has to. Maybe it’s another item in Daria’s immovable moral code. Then again, it doesn’t seem like something she’d care about. Coming out, just for its own sake. Too much ceremony around it. Too many clichés.

    Jane and Daria head back to Raft after trying yet another mediocre pizza place, and Jane spends the night.

    In hindsight, Eve will know that their meeting was never anything close to chance, but, in the moment, she believes that it starts with a mistake. Or, leaning further into Bluebeard, heavily inspired by Angela Carter.

    Summary

    “I’ve heard that back in the day, when they sent in people to rake the blood out of the sand, they had to pick shreds of girl-meat out from between the tigers’ teeth. But those,” she said, pitching her voice low and watching everyone lean in, “were loser bitches, and we’re not like them. And since they banned menagerie fights, we’re the only beasts on the floor. I want us cleaning our own teeth when this is all over.”

    All those faces turned in her direction, radiating loyalty and bloodthirst. Addy, afterwards, stroking along the white flash of Beth’s smile, Beth lightly catching the pad of Addy’s thumb between her teeth.
