Hey, for anyone who is a bit broke.
Tor is offering Gideon the Ninth as their free ebook.
Unfortunately, the offer is only available in the US and Canada. Download before 11:59 PM ET, October 8th, 2021.
(Tried it and it totally worked.)
This has probably been done before but like-
May I add:
Ah yes. Me. My girlfriend. Her double-handed sword bathed in arterial blood sheathed in bone AND her creepy ass ghost crush.
This just keeps getting worse doesnt it
[ID: the images on the OP are digital drawings of two tweets from Harrow @/reverend_daughter and Gideon @/notfuckingdead69. Harrow’s reads, “A yes. Me. My cavalier. And her 5 ft 100 pound two-hander.” followed by a drawing of Harrow and Gideon lying in a bed with a skeleton headboard, Harrow staring straight up at the ceiling as Gideon cradles her sword in the background.
Gideon’s reads, “Ah yes. Me. My necromancer. And her hallucination of a 10,000 year old corpse.” followed by a drawing of the same bed, but Gideon is closer to the viewer and staring into the camera like she’s on the Office, as The Body lays on top of Harrow in the background.
the image on the reblog shows Ianthe and Harrow lying in bed, Ianthe staring at te ceiling tiredly, Harrow hugging the two-hander in the background as The Body stands at the edge of the bed watching. /end ID]
I remember seeing a post a while back about the Fifth arranging the seating chart for the anniversary dinner so that Jeannemary could sit next to Gideon and the thought of that makes me so happy.
Did she ask them to do that, or did they notice her crush and arrange it for her? Did she protest when she found out where she’d be sitting (“noooo, Magnus, that’s so embarrassing!”) and then secretly celebrate that she’d maybe be able to talk to the cool Ninth cav?
Did she excitedly whisper about it with Isaac and then engage in a frantic silent gesture-conversation with him for most of the night? (“What do I say to her?” “I don’t know, talk about whatever cavaliers talk about! Swords or something!“ “She doesn’t talk, Isaac!” “Then just make googly eyes at her like you did with Lieutenant Quintus!”)
Listen, I never saw Atlantis: The Lost Empire before getting into The Locked Tomb and now every time I see this dude I think it’s fanart of fucking Palamedes Sextus
This series has ruined things for me that I don’t even know about yet.
I have always seen Pierre from Stardew Valley as somehow both Magnus Quinn and Palamedes Sextus
Gideon: That’s it! I’m leaving!
Harrow: See if I care!
Gideon: I’m serious!
Harrow: Good! Don’t let the Tomb lock behind you on your way out!
Harrow: Wait a minute….
(I was thinking about when folks are like…
“Good! Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out” but the Ninth would use something to do with the tomb instead.)
