    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

    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

    This being a documentation of the fall of the House of the First at the hands of the traitor Lyctor Cytherea, as recorded by Harrowhark (whilom Nonagesimus) the First, ninth saint to serve the King Undying, who asked that it be incinerated until no trace of her account of the ascent of herself and her cavalier to the side of the Emperor might remain. The document remains wholly intact, because Ianthe (whilom Tridentarius) the First, tasked with feeding these pages to the fires, is a messy bitch who loves drama.

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a scion in possession of a dying House must be in want of a wife. Preferably one with resources. Harrowhark is a house scion in need of a wife. Gideon Prime has the universe at her fingertips. The only problem is: they absolutely fucking hate each other. No offense.

    Summary

    When the Lyctor Cytherea the First, seventh saint to serve the King Undying, ran Protesilaus Ebdoma through the heart and watched him die, with the expression of a man in the process of shifting into that of a cavalier protecting his adept with all he had now frozen forever on that beautiful Seventh House face, a very small and very quiet part of her was reminded of the worst day of her life.

    Summary

    Written for this very excellent prompt (which did not deserve what I did with it):

    Protesilaus Ebdoma is named for the greek hero Protesilaus of Phylace who was the first to die in the trojan war. Dulcie calls his wife Mia, which is almost certainly short for Laodamia after the classical Protesilaus' wife. This has poor implications for her prospects - Laodamia of Phylace did not handle her husband's death well.

    As Protesilaus and Laodamia were newlyweds, his spirit was allowed to return to her for three hours before leaving for the underworld. Afterwards, she was so wracked by grief that she created his likeness in bronze and devoted herself to it as though it were her real husband. Her father eventually attempted to destroy the statue but she threw herself on the pyre and perished in the flames. This is all extremely fucking seventh.

    Poor Mia is about to receive news of Pro's death alongside his perfectly preserved head which is honestly quite a bit better than a bronze statue. Grave lust is the classical vice in the nine houses, who could blame her for indulging a bit.

    Summary

    When the Dark Forest cats rose against the Clan cats, they were defeated. Or so the stories say...

    What if Tigerstar hadn’t been defeated by Firestar? What if he had discovered a powerful magic, and used it to put himself back in power?

    Enter Gideon, small orange ball of self-proclaiming hotness. Gideon spent her young life listening to her foster mother tell stories about the Clan cats. Now, she has the chance to join the Clans, and become a warrior herself. But during Gideon’s training as an apprentice, things don’t line up exactly as she’d hoped. Dark secrets start to unravel, and she’s forced to choose between loyalty to the Clan she’s always dreamed of joining, or loyalty to her newfound friends.
