    Summary

    In my Brit Lit I class, one of our assignments was a creative project inspired by one of our assigned texts, and from my efforts to stay focused while reading Beowulf this AU just sort of happened. I wrote this, then four pages explaining my decisions and analysis, and I got an A. Sharing this here for the fits and giggles. Enjoy this bad idea of mine.
