    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

    The thing Gideon didn’t understand was, if Harrow just said, “Hey, Griddle, we’re both alone here and our hormones are raging, you want to get a little kissy with each other?,” Gideon would have absolutely said yes!

    Okay, first she would have said, “Hell No. Choke on a bone, Nonagesimus”, but that was mostly just a reflex. And once Gideon was alone and actually thought about it, she would have reconsidered, and eventually she would have decided that even if it was some atrociously cruel trick that Harrow planned, some attempt to humiliate or hurt Gideon, it was still worth finding out because kissing -- actually kissing! -- and it wasn’t like there was anyone else offering or anyone else Gideon could even consider asking.

    So if Harrow asked again, Gideon would have said, “Yes. This is the worst idea you’ve ever had in a long history of bad ideas, but let’s do it! I’m in!” Why bother with the skeletons, with the fighting, now that Harrow knew that Gideon was into her advances?

    Summary

    You’ve thought about it many times, but now that it’s actually happening, you’re not sure you ever wanted it quite like this.

    He’s slumped against the bank of filing cabinets in C Wing’s main space, legs splayed out in front of him, head rolling. Jean pulled you here, from the breakout room; interrupted your dutifully sober festivities to show you Torson’s latest handiwork.

    In which Kim Kitsuragi gets very silly.
