    Summary

    “You’re the new bartender?” Ianthe asks, glancing at Gideon with something resembling distaste. “Come back at tomorrow at four pm. Harry’s going to show you the ropes.” 

    “Don’t call me that,” Harrow says automatically. Then, as the rest of Ianthe’s sentence sinks in: “Wait, I’m what?” 

    “You’re training her,” Ianthe says. She’s smiling pleasantly, but Harrow catches the demonic flash of schadenfreude behind it. “Try not to kill each other, will you?”

    Summary

    “Gideon,” said Palamedes with the patience of a saint, “the rules are the rules. It wouldn’t be fair if I changed them just for you. In a well ordered society—

    “It’s not a well ordered society.” Gideon knew where that was going, and she certainly didn’t have the time. She slapped a slip of paper onto the counter and said, “It’s secret santa.”

    And there lay the source of all of her problems: handwritten in a script so neat and precise it could have been printed, Harrowhark Nonagesimus. And everyone knew that Gideon and Harrow hated each other.

    So what if they had started taking smoke breaks together? So what if Harrow had helped her fold shirts just last week, in a store she didn’t even work in? So what if Harrow had laughed as the two of them did Jagerbombs at Palamedes’ Halloween party, the glint of her fake fangs flashing invitingly in the orange party lights? They hated each other. The two of them would both work in the mall until one of them inevitably strangled the other with her bare hands, and Gideon wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Except that lately, Gideon had started to like Harrow.

    Which made that slip of paper a fucking problem.

    Summary

    Coping with her stressful studies on the way to certification as a physiotherapist, Adora has fallen into a local community theatre as a way to have fun and make new friends. She's made a place for herself there and everything is going great when she lands one of the lead roles of their newest play - until she shows up to the first rehearsal and the person cast in the role of her romantic opposite is Catra, who she hasn't seen since the breakup eight years ago when she left Catra behind to move across the country for a soccer scholarship.

    But there's no denying the obvious chemistry between them when they get on stage, and the director won't hear of anybody else playing the roles.

    It wasn’t until Adora collapsed into the backseat of the cab and went to pull out the address that she realized.
