    Summary

    “Your hair’s gotten so long,” she tells him next. One hand reaches towards him so he leans his head to meet it halfway. Fingernails scratch over the skin of his scalp. “Do you not get hot?”

    Jon bites down on his tongue so he doesn’t tell her he doesn’t think it’s the heat that’s the issue with long hair for her. “No,” he says.

    Summary

    A particularly unkind feature—to call it one of the worst would be an exaggeration, a dramatique worthy of Cristabel Oct, but it’s somewhere in contention, between “brutally cannibalizing your life partner” and “listening to John’s little me-me references only he gets for eternity”—of Lyctorhood is in their brilliant minds. Their ever-replenishing neurons. Their eternally unstained memories; wherein something might have happened four thousand years ago or yesterday morning.

    All of this to say, when Cytherea tumbles into a meaty set of arms and hears a broad, firm voice say, “—give her some air.” her first thought is, oh, Loveday.

    Summary

    You had your body and I had mine, and it was a miracle. Your hands against my face were a miracle. The rest of your meat attached to your hands was a prayer answered and a promise broken, but we were flush and gasping and alive, and Harrow—I really thought you might’ve kissed me then.

    But I felt it happen. The way your breath suddenly stilled, and your body locked up beneath mine, remembering. How with splintering gentleness, you pushed me away.

    “I’m so sorry,” was the second thing you said upon waking.

    The first thing had been my name.

    Stranded in a safehouse on an Edenite moon, Gideon and Harrow try to put themselves back together.

    Summary

    Harrow looks the same as ever; goth-y, and just a little bit pretentious in an expensively distressed black sweater that looks like Dracula’s least-favourite curtain trying to strangle her, and also like she hasn’t slept in days. Admittedly, it’s hard to tell past what Gideon estimates is four-day-old eye-shadow smudged on thick and tarry. Her profile is thin and severe, hunched over her phone, which is lit up brighter than God’s phone, for some fucking reason, throwing a bright blue line against her jaw, and bruisy skull-shadows over the rest of her face.
    She never did give a shit about saving battery.
    The IV, on the other hand, is new.
    Harrow looks exactly like she did two and a half years ago, except that she’s ensconced in a nest of wires and blip-ing monitors, on a saline drip, on a gurney, in the ER.

    When Gideon Nav gets a call that her ex-girlfriend, who never bothered to change her designated emergency contact, is in the hospital, she goes against her better judgement and responds. Everything after that just gets more complicated.

    Summary

    What I say is, “Fuck off, I’m sick.”

    “For once, I didn’t say anything,” you say.

    “Yeah, well, sometimes the look on your stupid face does all the talking for your mouth.”

    Gideon gets sick, and Harrow takes care of her.
