    Summary

    It wasn’t an earth-shattering kaboom, or an upheaval of her life, or any other dramatic nonsense she’d heard from Jayce and Viktor, from Claggor and Mylo about the searching for and the discovering of love. It wasn’t this moment of lucidity, a thunderstrike of passion and feeling that overcame her senses and pointed her home. If anything, it was understated, quiet, a simple pleasure.

    It was an exhalation.

    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

    There is an agonizing moment where DIn feels Luke’s body tense beneath him, his muscles flexing in a way that makes him sure Luke is about to punch or at least push him away, but then something shifts behind Luke’s eyes, as if he recognized the fear in Din's, and before Din can form another coherent thought Luke crushes their lips together and kisses him as if his life depends on it.

    ---

    Din meets Luke twice a day, five days a week, in a way that’s casual, predictable, impersonal - Until that one day where he meets him by accident, in the middle of the night in a way that's neither.

    Summary

    Essek goes home, and there is no one waiting at his door. This should be some manner of relief. But his towers haven't felt like a safe haven for a long time now, long before errant scourgers appeared to harass him with strange questions. He misses the immediacy of that threat, prefers it over the slow and indulgent terror of whatever punishment is coming for him, someday soon.

    He tells himself that he misses only that, the simplicity of being unsafe in the company of predators, and that he does not miss the company itself.

    (In which a pair of scourgers shows up at Essek’s doorstep and saves him from himself.)
