    Summary

    She was young, he’d been right, and so small. She couldn’t have been much above five feet tall, and it certainly had been an odd sensation looking down at his new monarch. But there was a strength in her voice – a strength with a tremor, for sure, and a lot of fake confidence that anyone with any observational skills would see right through – but a strength that had surprised him, given her history. She hadn’t been completely cowed by Conroy, he thought a little triumphantly. There was a fire in her eyes, an eagerness to succeed, but a wariness. She couldn’t hide her fear, no matter how imperiously she looked at him, how high she held her chin.

    Or, the one where Lord Melbourne becomes Private Secretary to a twenty-two-year-old Queen Victoria sometime in 2017.

    Summary

    After the Battle of Waterloo, Mrs. Fitzwilliam becomes the new favorite of the Duke of Wellington... just in time to support him through a messy, ahistoric divorce. Things only get more complicated from there.

    Otherwise known as, "A tumblr anon asked, "If you're ever so bored as to be looking for something ridiculous to fill a prompt- Elizabeth takes him up on his offer? Sees if the 'Iron' Duke lives up to his name?" and I COMMITTED." Part of my "Ever-Fixed Mark" soulmate AU, though it does not deserve the dignity of a title from a Shakespearean sonnet. It gets a Harlequin Romance title instead.

    Summary

    "It would have been a tragedy, my marrying someone like Albert?" Victoria tightened her hand on his shoulder, and Melbourne nodded seriously.

    "For me, Ma'am, it would have been the most painful tragedy I would have endured in all my life, and I consider myself something of an expert on painful tragedies. Still, I would have borne it."

    "For England's sake," Victoria nodded, but Melbourne shook his head.

    "For your sake."

    ************************

    The "rook scene" at Brocket Hall ends very differently from what we see on the show. When Victoria rejects all suitors but Melbourne, he gives his Sovereign what she desires. But where Victoria underestimates the political fallout, Lord M realises just how much trouble they may be creating. He loves her anyway. Alternate history, Vicbourne, novel length WIP.

    Summary

    Он благодарен. Он так благодарен за каждую мелочь. Он заслуживал так мало после всего, что сделал и что не сделал со своей жизнью, и потому так благодарен теперь за драгоценные мгновения с детьми женщины, которую любил. За эту возможность снова быть кем-то, снова быть чем-то стоящим. Делать что-то значимое для страны — для империи — служению которой он посвятил, пожалуй, слишком большую часть своей жизни.

    Summary

    General Wellington selects Colonel Fitzwilliam for a very singular honor during the Spanish Campaign: working with dragons-- and, in particular, with Captain Elizabeth Bennet, of His Majesty's Dragon, the Longwing Wollstonecraft.

    Temeraire/ Pride and Prejudice crossover entirely to have Elizabeth Bennet as a dragon captain during the Peninsular War, with Charlotte Lucas as her uber-capable first lieutenant.

    Summary

    One would think that having the name of one's soulmate appear on one's wrist on one's sixteenth birthday would make matrimony much less complicated. It mostly does not. And not at all for Miss Elizabeth Bennet of Longbourne.

    (A deconstruction of the "soulmate identifying mark" trope, using "Pride and Prejudice." Trigger warnings in the tags.)

    In a world much like ours, the fate of humanity rests on the shoulders of two 14-year old mages and the people they inadvertently raised from the dead.

    Summary

    Leo believed that asking someone the question, “Where are you from?” was inherently unfair, because whereas some people could simply answer “Quebec” or even “Canada”, he always felt the need to clarify that he was Corsican and spoke primarily Corsican, but he was from France, and lived in Quebec. In his mind, the true meaning of “Where are you from?” roughly translated into “Which place-name do you identify with and how can I factor it into my perception of you?”.
    And then, of course, there were people like Sasha.

    Summary

    An age of revolution. An age of glory. An age of triumph.

    The Napoleonic era.

    Well, no one ever asked Chara if she wanted a revolution. No one asked if she wanted glory. No one asked if she wanted triumph.

    But since when was she the one in control?

    Summary

    He knows he shouldn’t. He knows there is a chance she’ll figure it out, that she’ll decode his secret messages. A small part of himself that he despises hopes she does.
    Another part of him is terrified to imagine the consequences if she does.
    The largest part of him, however, is willing to risk it. He doesn’t think she’ll read anything more into it other than his affection and his reminders that he’s always there with her, and always will be. She’s smart, his Queen, but intelligence is nothing without knowledge in this case, and he’s fairly sure she will not learn this in her studies.
    He also can’t help himself.

    Summary

    What if Jonathan's magic flared wildly while he was panicky in the forest? What if it reached through to a parallel universe when he cried, 'help help!' and pulled through the perfect person to help? Who would that person be? What shape would their help take?
