    Summary

    She frowned. “Mother always tells me that I’m not ladylike at all.”

    “And what do I always tell you?”

    “That being ladylike is for vapid women who lack ambition,” she parroted.

    “Exactly,” Father said. Lyra grinned, and Pantalaimon became a coral snake on her shoulder, his belly an electric blue and his head a fiery orange, like the tip of a match. “And while your mother may pretend well,” Father continued, the corner of his lip quirking up, “don’t forget that she’s no lady either.” He turned back to his book. “Now run along.”

    Summary

    “Your mother is going to kill me someday,” Father says, flopping down onto the sofa next to her and picking up the newspaper.
    Like, that’s an acceptable image to plant in the impressionable head of his young daughter.
    “And when she does, it’ll be up to you to avenge me,” he says with the same tone, like he’s discussing sport with the boring men Mother has over for tea.

    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

    The operation to the Ninth House has been a failure to all involved. Commander Wake failed to deliver her bomb, and Gideon the First failed to kill her.

    He did succeed, however, in stranding her broken shuttle.

    Alone, drifting without thrust or communications in deep space, Wake has dwindling options. There’s a limited supply of oxygen and food. There’s no way to tell if rescue is coming.

    And the cryochamber housing her undetonated bomb had to go and fucking break.
