    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.

    Summary

    With both parents passed away and a younger sister to support, Bellamy Blake may not have drawn the easiest lot in life. But he had a plan: Rise through the ranks of the Royal Navy, find a good husband for his sister, make Lieutenant or maybe even Captain, and keep sailing and fighting until he died at sea. What he had not planned for was suddenly inheriting a title, complete with lands and fortune.
    Instead of simply trying to stay alive long enough to get Octavia settled comfortably, now he had to figure out how to run an estate, bring his sister out into society while protecting her from rakes and fortune hunters, and remember his manners around one stubborn, haughty, irresistible Lady Clarke Griffin, Daughter of the Earl of Arkton – and very soon the bane of his existence.

    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.
