    Summary

    There is a bitterness upon her tongue, and whether it was the creep of bile or purely psychological distaste, was unbeknownst her. The figures were unsightly; gnarled limbs entirely splotched with open blisters.

    It was to the best of her being, to turn her cheek.

    All the whilst, the man, in prim clothing and proper outfitting, only watched from afar.

    Summary

    King Henry VIII seeks to annul his marriage to Katherine of Aragon, and will do anything to achieve this goal - including breaking away from the Church that had been the center of many people's lives for centuries. Atemu is a young lord summoned to court with orders from his overbearing mother to advance the family. Yugi Mutou, the Earl of Shrewsbury, is known as a devout man who hopes to influence the king enough to abandon his course to keep his country together. During such a tumultuous time, Atemu and Yugi fight to grow their forbidden relationship and escape from an increasingly dangerous court life that threatens to consume them.

    Summary

    Author's Summary: It's the 16th century, Golden Age of intra-Christian religious warfare, Hermetic magic[k], English literature, and codpiece jokes. In which Crowley has a bad secret, a good sulk, and an ill-advised scheme; Aziraphale has a mortal admirer who's getting too close (in a purely Neoplatonic way, of course); and the Need-to-Know Basis clause of the Arrangement is stretched to the breaking point.

    Sir Francis Walsingham needs their help as he negotiates a treaty between Catholics and Huguenots. A fragile peace bound by the unpopular wedding of Henri de Navarre and Marguerite de Valois. To do this, they must join the dysfunctional debauched court of the Valois and join forces with Nate Fick, undercover agent, court favorite and musician.

    What is the secret that binds Nate to his mistress, the volatile, yet alluring Margot? Can Charles IX hold on to his sanity long enough to keep his throne? And to what lengths will Catherine go to bring her favourite son, the vicious yet amorally charming Alexandre Edouard, Duc d'Anjou to the throne? The terrors of the Saint Bartholomew's Eve massacre await them all...
    As the aftermath of the killings horrify the court, the murders continue. No one is safe as more shocking secrets come out. Catherine de' Medici's long reign of horror and lies is finally exposed to all.
    Not least: The darkest, most terrifying Valois secret of all...

    Summary

    "It's Carthage and there hasn't even been a proper fight, only a whole lot of droning on about honor. If I wanted that I'd ask my father; at least he doesn't do it in verse."

    Tybalt and Mercutio meet at a very bad play. Words are said, eyelashes batted, and no one gets stabbed (that way...or the other way...yet).

    (Canon levels of misogyny on Mercutio's part; based on the Hungarian musical production but probably relatively Shakespeare-compatible, aside from a few brief references.)

    Summary

    There was a picture of EriSol I found once. I've been trying to find the artist to it so I can share with them this fanfic, but no luck whatsoever. Who knows, maybe they'll find it through here. The reason I mention that, though, is because I loved the picture so much, I basically made a fan-fiction out of it. I write a lot, and many things give me ideas, so this is the result of the inspiration.

    The picture is this: http://media.tumblr.com/afa23eabf64b66eb152ef9bf26187866/tumblr_inline_n0cmhovj1P1rn0p5k.png

    I also did it because I love this pairing anyway.

    HOWEVER: It is Humanstuck (So that it flows better into the AU I made for it) and it's red-romance.

    I know, I know, some of you LOVE them as trolls. Just use your imagination cx

    I hope to post a chapter every week or so, or whenever I feel I have good ideas for it! I'm pretty much going with the flow, here, while having spots planned here and there ;u;

    None the less, here it is and I really hope you guys enjoy it!
    Feel free to share it, comment, etc etc!

    Let's begin this wonderful adventure <3

    Summary

    Niall sighed, pressing a kiss to Zayn's shoulder before untangling himself, making to get off of the bed. Zayn caught his waist, wrapping both arms around him. "Stay." He pleaded, already feeling his loss.

    Niall settled back, turning around in his embrace. "I’m sharing with the other manservants - they'll miss me soon."
    "Just ten minutes more. I have missed you."

    He sighed in defeat, cuddling in closer and entwining their fingers. "Five minutes."

    Niall and Zayn have been in love with each other for ten years: they are happy.

    But in the court of Henry VIII, such happiness is punishable by death...

    Summary

    Count Paris returns to Verona and finds everything tiresomely unchanged—with the exception of one intriguingly grown-up Tybalt Capulet.
