    Summary

    It'd been two years since Gideon Nav gathered her wine key and her gaming license and escaped The Locked Tomb, a speakeasy-style cocktail bar managed by the hateful Harrowhark Nonagesimus. Now, dealing tables at The Mithraeum Hotel & Casino, things were really looking up. So when Gideon scored a date with the most beautiful showgirl in the Gilded Halls of Ida, the last thing she expected was to wake up married to her old nemesis and former coworker.

    The story starts the night of Gideon's date and alternates between the events leading up to the wedding and the weeks that follow as Gideon tries to navigate life married to someone who claims to want nothing more than to forget she exists.

    Summary

    The poets declared that love was a complex thing full of false starts and quickly faded.
    For Ortus Nigenad love, albeit a different kind than the ones the poets often wrote of, was very simple. Someone had handed him Harrowhark Nonagesimus at one month old and he had vowed that he would be there for her until the day he died.

    Summary

    (or Abgail doesn't stop the Royal AU when she is supposed to).

    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

    A lightly-altered continuation of Chapter 40 of Harrow the Ninth.

    Harrow Nova — depressed, disgraced, disinherited daughter of the Tombkeeper line — was not the necromancer that her House required when she was born. Now she wants nothing more than to prove her worth with the sword and be named Cavalier Primary to her adoptive younger sister, the Reverend Daughter of the House of the Ninth. Of course, that would require that the current Cavalier Primary, Ortus Nigenad, step down or be removed, and for her to prove that she is better suited to the role than her closest rival, Gideon Nav…

    Summary

    Once upon a time, many, many years ago, Harrowhark's great-great-grandmother, who had herself lived an unnaturally long life, told her that their family was descended from that one wicked snake that haunted the Garden of Eden, that the family Nonigesimus were more serpent than man. At the time, Harrow had thought she was joking, just a senile old woman weaving mindless tales.

    She knows better now.

    Summary

    "[C]ertainly Aiglamene did not love her and would have laughed herself to her overdue death at the idea: but in her had been a measure of tolerance, a willingness to loosen the leash and see what Gideon could do with free rein." - Gideon the Ninth, chapter 1

    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

    John Gaius never extended the invitations to Canaan House and never called for new Lyctors. Gideon Nav's ninetieth escape attempt was successful, and she enlisted in the Cohort and never heard from Harrowhark Nonagesimus again.

    Five years later, Captain Nav receives a distress call from the Ninth, and everything she's worked hard for is thrown into question.

    Title from Neko Case's "A Widow's Toast".

    Summary

    Sometimes a community can be a goth, a lesbian himbo, the real Dulcinea Septimus, a family man with a hard-on for metaphor, tons of other people from the neighborhood, and Ortus Nigenad with his five album historical rap anthology on Soundcloud.

    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

    Five times Harrow gave herself piercings, and one time someone else did.

    There are depictions of home piercings here. I cannot recommend home piercings less. Please get your piercings done by a reputable piercer at a shop that is hygienic and uses body-safe materials. If you are going to stretch any piercings, please do so in a safe, educated way guided by a professional piercer using high-quality stretching materials at safe intervals. I'm speaking from experience. This is a work of fiction; this is not meant to represent reality in any way.

    Title is a song by Antsy McClain & the Trailer Park Troubadors.

    Smut in the last chapter!
