    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 miserable 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

    Every year a necromancer and a non-necromancer are chosen from each of The Emperor’s nine houses to compete in a deadly trial of skills. The Necromancy Games are broadcast across the universe from the First House to remind the planets that they are at the mercy of the Prince Undying.

    Harrowhark has been training for The Games her entire life, and she’ll do whatever it takes to win.

    Gideon Nav never thought she’d go, until fate thrust her directly into a deadly game where all bets are off.

    Only one can win The Games.

    Summary

    Okay, so Ianthe and Mercymorn have sex. But mostly, it's through Mercy's terrifying and hot anatomy powers. It includes a lot of yearning, a lot of contemplating lost or inaccessible loves, and also Mercy majorly fucking/ fucking with Ianthe.

    I listed "dubious consent" mostly because Mercymorn and Ianthe are very, very bad at communication.

    The Saint of Joy looked at Ianthe with almost comical disinterest, though Ianthe knew (hoped?) that it was part of the show. She really hoped Mercymorn would not make her beg. She wanted to come, but also wasn’t sure how willing she was to humiliate herself more. This was enough. Ianthe half struggled upwards, but then Mercymorn was back on the bed, this time straddling her, knees spread and surrounding Ianthe’s hips. She placed her fingers on Ianthe’s neck, two fingers, like she was taking her pulse. Ianthe was frozen again, thank the Emperor. Ianthe did not want the choice. She did not want to be forced to choose between her dignity or her desire. Now she was stripped of agency, once again at the mercy of the other Lyctor.

    Summary

    As she removed her earrings, Ianthe joined Harrow on the couch, asking, "What're you reading?" When Harrow turned the cover toward her, she wrinkled her nose. "The Bell Jar?" She sneered. "No wonder you're depressed."

    "I'm not depressed," Harrow said, and was instantly aware of the fact that it was utter bullshit. Her parents were dead, Gideon had dumped her, and Ianthe was the only one who seemed to care that she was here. Depressed wasn't a strong enough word.

    Consider this a modern dark academia ballet AU. Very The Secret History meets Tiny Pretty Things or Flesh and Bone. It's dark, but not as dark as it seems.

    Summary

    This was the sum of their marriage, two drunks on their thirty-year-old couch watching Jeopardy, rehashing the same conversations over and over, but settling into one another at the end of the night.

    Modern AU character study where platonic-married Augustine & Mercymorn get drunk together and Mercymorn thinks a little too much about the past. Sad, loosely based off some Mountain Goats alpha couple songs, especially "Fault Lines" and "The Mess Inside" from All Hail West Texas. Oddly specific thing that I wrote mostly for myself but also for a few other people on Twitter after a TMG: The Locked Tomb conversation.

    Summary

    As punishment for a particularly scathing end to her junior year of high school, Gideon Nav is sent to Camp Mithraeum: A sprawling collection of empty fields, wood cabins halfway rotted to hell, and a lake which glitters gorgeously in the sun, sitting approximately at the edge of the universe. Gideon, loudly gay and loudly atheist, is hoping to make this experience as miserable for everyone else as it is for her. Just when she thinks that bible camp couldn't possible get any worse, she's partnered up with her greatest enemy, Harrowhark Nonagesimus.

    Summary

    “I hated the sexy parties,” said Mercymorn, with an almost tearful vehemence, and Augustine said, “We know, Joy. We know.”

     

    CWs: I tagged this as non-con because of the implications of saying no to God. There is no violent rape or violence in this but I think - and I wrote it as - dubious consent since I doubt that it's truly possible for Mercy, or any of the Lyctors, to consent in this situation. If I have forgotten any tags, please let me know!

    Thank you to the person who made this playlist for a really lovely writing soundtrack for sexy parties!

    This fic, though in the same series as the other two, takes place earlier, during a time when all seven original necromancers, plus John, had ascended to Lyctorhood but none had yet died in pursuit of Resurrection Beasts. Also, this is clothing porn and I love thinking about the Lyctors dressing up in sexy party outfits. When I picked the color for Mercy - magenta - I thought, “What color would Cytherea absolutely love to put Mercy in that Mercy would look kind of weird and awkward in?”

    Summary

    Everyone says not to bother Mercy before she’s had her morning coffee. It’s nothing to do with caffeine: every night she dreams that Cristabel is still alive, and every morning she has to confront the reality of her death all over again.

    Summary

    Harrowhark Nonagesimus is this close to graduating from high school early and escaping all of her dreadful, hormonal peers. Unfortunately, a rogue physical education requirement - and her own hatred for shorts - forces her to join the school's fencing team.

    Friends are a waste of time, in Harrowhark's opinion. The loud, muscular, extremely attractive saber fighter is determined to kill that opinion super dead.

     “The question, my lugubrious lady, remains: what in the crypt-keeping fuck is your deal?”

    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

    Harrow is writing up a single to compete in their town's songwriting competition and knows no one else who can play. She has no other choice but to request aid from the local legend of the strings herself - Gideon Nav.

    AKA: When Gideon stumbles into joining a band led by her worst enemy. The vibes were rancid.
