    Summary

    For a moment you worried that, come another myriad, you and she might be able to carry on such a conversation: that you would know her intent by the twist of her mouth and her exhalation, to the point where you could speak without dialogue. (Harrow the Ninth ch. 29)

    Usually, two of the stars form a close binary system, and the third orbits this pair at a distance much larger than that of the binary orbit. This arrangement is called hierarchical. (Wikipedia, I admit.)

     

    Harrow's office is still down the same gray hallway. Ianthe doesn't think the furniture has even been rearranged in the past few decades. The keypad blinks red, but the door was left just barely open: an engraved invitation. Ianthe taps her access code in anyway, enjoying the faint sensation of Harrow's ward tasting the thalergy from her fingertips.

    This is a far-future canon-divergent AU in which Harrow never stops being a diet Lyctor, never remembers Gideon, and is entangled by the centuries with Ianthe. *jacking-off motion* Sorry, Gideon lovers, see you next time!

    Summary

    “My parents are-- indisposed.” The child hardly faltered, though she barely made a speck of black cloak against the decrepit armored bulk of her retainer. “I act in their stead.”

     

    Abigail drew a deep breath. Dead, then. She was sure of it, but she would gain nothing by forcing the child to admit it. “I do not come as a pilgrim, Reverend Daughter. I come to seek the aid of the Ninth House. Will you help me?”


    At the behest of the very young newly-minted Master Warden, Lady Abigail Pent arrives on Drearburh to ask the Reverend Mother and Father for help. Instead, she finds two girls in desperate need of parents.

    They won’t let her help, but the young Reverend Daughter is willing to bargain.

    Summary

    'au where Gideon wore her real sword to breakfast on like Day 2 of Canaan House because fuck Harrow amiright? and from across the dining hall Abigail Pent was like, “oh my god that sword is possessed. That sword is VERY possessed.” *walking over* “Did you know that your sword is possessed by literally THE angriest - I’m gonna talk to her. Is anyone else going to - I’m not waiting for an answer, I’m talking to this ghost.”'

    I moved the timing around a bit - this takes place immediately after chapter 14 of Gideon the Ninth.

    Summary

    She was where she needed to be. She was going to pull her necro out of this godforsaken tomb, end the game of musical bodies they were playing, and then everything would be all right. Harrow would be alive. And Gideon was going to give her shit for approximately the next myriad for not just taking what she’d offered and saving them a whole lot of trouble.
