    The general expressed to his friend he did not mind an ill-tempered, sharp-mouthed, too-witty stubborn boy of nebulous birth with hardly any standing rank of his own once removed from his adopted castle, and such the deal was struck. On the next sunrise, the sewing of wedding garments began.

    Summary

    Summary

    A Regency-flavoured, arranged-marriage Washington/Hamilton slow burn AU born out of an extended thought experiment about kinship and matriarchy. Yeah, I don't know either. But please remember why we're here: Washington in a frock coat, on a giant white horse, sexually charged waltzes, and sniping!

    CAVEAT EMPTOR: Updates every couple of days. The world-building here is fairly extensive, the misandry very real, and the burn exceedingly slow. If that doesn't sound appealing, this fic probably isn't for you.

    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.

    Summary

    Regency AU in which Mycroft Holmes has given up a promising military career to take up his duties as eldest son and heir of the late Earl of Halsbury and in which his younger brother's world has suffered serious damage from the family tragedy. Appearances must be upheld nevertheless, an elegant facade must be maintained and scandals must be avoided at all cost. A convenient marriage to the lovely Lady Harcourt therefore seems a logical choice, but the appearance of a handsome Bow Street Runner makes him wonder whether he should listen to logic when life offers him what he has always wanted.

    However, sense and sensibility are not always in disagreement, no matter what the poets say, and Mycroft Holmes is forced to consider the possibility that the one thing he has always thought he wanted might not be what he has truly been looking for.
