    Summary

    In 18th century Italy, young boys are castrated to preserve their high-pitched voices. Raphael Armento is one such singer, and it is Gabriel Hathaway’s task to write an article about the Castrato’s promiscuous sex life.

But when Raphael is told to play the lead female role in an opera, old wounds are reopened and the ambiguous relationship between the teacher and student turns bitter. Desperate to help, Gabriel resolves to either see Raphael through the obstacle, or take him and run away from the cruel world of music.

    Summary

    Lady Sansa Stark is the orphaned last offspring of the late Duke and Duchess of Winterfell. Her family executed for inciting a revolution against the new, young King, she was allowed to live when she recanted but failed to convince her family to follow suit. Sent to live with her aunt, the Duchess of the Vale, she fell into despair for now she was a social pariah. Stripped of title, inheritance, lands and considered unmarriageable as the daughter of a traitor. Dancing with a dark stranger at a ball for the Duchess's son, she was cast out to live with her drunken and gambling uncle in Riverrun.

    One night, her uncle in a desperate attempt to win back his estate from gambling, bets and loses his niece to two unsavory men of the local gentry. That is, until an unlikely savior appears in the form of the new (and very wealthy) Marquess of Harrenhal, notorious for his swift rise into the aristocracy by means of smuggling, gambling and becoming the top financial advisor to the Royal Family.

    Fantasy/Romance AU using the18th Century Georgian/Regency period as a backdrop (but not strictly adhered to). Elements of old Celtic/Gaelic used to describe Northerners as Southerners are similar to that of British aristocracy.
