    Summary

    "Griddle," she said, fixing her expression into one that clearly shot for disdain but landed in an exhausted kind of exasperation, "it means that if we want to get off this planet before we get roped into tea parties and ballroom dancing at the whim of Coronabeth Tridentarius, you and I have no choice but to uncover the identity of the murderer."

    Privately, Gideon could think of worse things than being roped into tea parties and ballroom dancing by the Crown Princess. Sneaking around a house full of cannibals with Harrowhark Nonagesimus was one of them. In fact, it was pretty close to the top of the list.

     

    The annual seven-day royal ball hosted by Coronabeth Tridentarius takes an awkward turn when a dead body shows up in the library. With Ida on lockdown until the murderer can be found, Harrowhark's plans to stay for a single night before getting the hell out and hopefully never setting foot on the Third House again are thrown into disarray, leaving her no choice but to solve the mystery herself. Enter Gideon Nav, Camilla Hect, Palamedes Sextus, and a social world of animaphiliacs that none of them are even remotely equipped to navigate.

    Or, the Murder Mystery AU you never knew you needed.

    Summary

    Palamedes wakes up on a ship with Cam, Corona, Judith, Gideon and Harrow. He has brought two things back from exile in the River: his glasses and the draft of a romance novel. As the team evades Jod and links up with BOE, Palamedes and Gideon embark on the side quest of editing and publishing "Necromancer's Mercy," a romance novel with more hot babes and scholarly footnotes than anybody could've imagined (or wanted).

    Summary

    Orphan, witch, and recently minted Gryffindor Quidditch team captain, Gideon Nav has a total of two goals for Sixth Year: get a girlfriend and beat Slytherin in the Inter-House Quidditch Cup. When the Triwizard Tournament returns to Hogwarts, however, it becomes clear that both fate and Harrowhark Nonagesimus have other ideas.

    A tale of magic, violence, romance, bones, and a frankly unreasonable number of reference texts (thanks, Palamedes).

    Summary

    Sixteen-year-old Camilla and Palamedes take a chaperoned trip to Koniortos Court to meet the newly-appointed Lady and her charges. With a little bit of nerves and a little bit of wine, the young librarians find the trip spiraling wildly out of their control.

    “It’s not an invasion, it’s just reality. Consider this from an inner-system perspective: we are more likely to be swallowed by Dominicus than to be smote by our neglected Resurrector for not carrying on with the proper aesthetic. With that in mind I have made it my primary goal to see that my work outlives me, or our sun, whichever goes first. If some poor soul is tasked with rebuilding my particular brand of insanity using only my research and directives, they will at least find that it’s all very orderly.”

    Summary

    There’s a before, and there’s an after.

    In the before, when her arm has been pierced through by a rapier thrust that could have killed her, he’s around to make a fuss over it. He cleans out her wound, and binds it up again—properly, this time, and lecturing her about her own handiwork all the while, of course. He claims that she needs to take better care of herself, that she’s worrying him sick. “Please, Cam,” he says, “have a care. It really isn’t meant to be me who has to worry about outliving you, I can’t take it.”

    In the after, when her shoulder has been pierced through by a bone spike that should have killed her, he’s not there.


    Before, after—and Camilla Hect, somewhere in between.

    Summary

    Everyone has had a team member for a school project that they just don't mesh with. However, if the incentive is good enough, most people will put up with anything. Unfortunately for Gideon and Harrowhark, conflicting attitudes to schoolwork are the least of their problems.

    Finding yourself in university is hard enough without the past coming to call. It seems this time the skeletons in their closets have a tendency to bite.

    If they can manage to work well with others for once in their lives they might just make it out unscathed, but knowing these two it's going to take a hell of an incentive to ask for help.

    Summary

    Gideon Nav likes college. She’s got a full-ride sports scholarship that lifted her out of the foster care system and into the arms of the D1 elite. She has her friends, a full belly, and a fairly easy work study job…that puts her in unfortunate proximity to her worst nightmare, Harrowhark Nonagesimus.

    Harrow is the product of a classical music legacy rife with scandal and secrecy. She came to Canaan University with a plan to keep her head down and compose a piece of music so great that it could raise her and her family from the ashes. As they navigate the social labyrinth of a liberal arts college filled to the cranium with cliques, Harrow and Gideon will have to put their differences aside and work together if either of them has any chance of making it out of this school alive.

    Summary

    It's like a bad joke: two cavaliers (alive) and two necromancers (one dead) walk into a rebel faction of humanity, looking for a new life -- in every sense of the phrase.

    What they find is each other, and (in some cases) themselves.

    Summary

    "Palamedes."

    He slowly looked up from his newspaper; she only ever called him that when it was serious.

    "Yes?"

    She pointed at the cat sprawled across her lap. "I think our cat is a lesbian."

    Palamedes blinked. Put down his newspaper to adjust his glasses.

    "I'm sorry, what?"

     

    or, camilla thinks that ordering a new cat bed should definitely not have turned out like this

    Summary

    “Fret not, honeybun.” Gideon shook her red hair out of her eyes, belligerent. “I’m not totally sold on your whole skepticism thing.”
    “Well,” Harrow said, ignoring the nickname. She turned to the rest of the room, clearing her throat politely before addressing the empty air. “Ghosts, if you’re real, give us a sign. Make a noise. Move something. Send a shiver down our backs. Whisper softly into Nav’s left ear—”
    “I seriously fucking hate you.”
     

    (Casual sex and paranormal investigation. Not necessarily in that order.)

    (or: the Buzzfeed Unsolved AU in which Gideon is ready to fight a ghost, and Harrow just wants to be haunted.)

    Summary

    It isn’t that being caught exercising in the halls is actually embarrassing; Camilla knows that there’s more to health than medicine, and keeping fit requires lifting more than just books. What’s embarrassing, what’s down-to-the-marrow humiliating, is that she actually has the time to exercise. She should be helping her necromancer achieve lyctorhood, not finding exciting new places to do squats.

    It’s some small consolation, perhaps, that there’s at least one other cavalier whose necromancer has seen fit to turn her loose on Canaan House without a duty to fulfill. That the other cavalier is Gideon is, well, less consoling.

    ---

    In an alternate universe where things are progressing as the Emperor Undying intended, Camilla and Gideon find themselves with a lot more time on their hands and a lot less supervision from their necromancers. This could be the start of a beautiful bromance.
