    Summary

    "We were meant to land at a star. Never to live like this, nomads and thieves," Hamlet said.

    Horatio hadn't believed him at the time. They hadn't seemed adrift--Denmark was the greatest crumbling empire a man could imagine.

    Summary

    A collection of one-off fics - mostly short - written in the style and language of somebody else, usually fusions with the story of the original text. (My Narnia AU is not included because it is massive, and also has its own series.) Arranged approximately chronologically according to the date of the original text!

    Summary

    General Disclaimer, Cautionary Notices, and Acknowledgment: Not mine, not for money. Spoilers through series pilot. Occasional violence and bad language. Blame skyfyre; she talked me into this.

    Fair warning: I have done shameless and premeditated damage to every version, source, and analogue of Hamlet from Shakespeare to Saxo Grammaticus and back again. This isn't meant to be the real Europe in the real 16th century, either, but someplace more akin to the fantastical version of it that we see reflected in the wavery mirror of Shakespeare's inventions. (Among the many other distinctions, both Denmark and Norway at that time were ruled by members of the House of Oldenburg, instead of the fictitious dynasties that Shakespeare wrote about and that I have unabashedly stolen.) Also, I have made a whole lot of stuff up.

    Summary

    A high school AU written in a screenplay layout with a lot of angst and cynical lines. In which Hamlet's life is turning to crap, Horatio does not know how to help, Ophelia does not really want to help and wants her own life, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are the exact same and Polonius cannot simply stop giving useless advice.

    Summary

    In the mornings she combs her hair, smooths down the ruffles on her dress, makes a moue at herself in the mirror and applies the waxy red lipstick. Looks at herself sideways, tilts her head, widens her eyes, bats her eyelashes. Laertes’ car roars, and Ophelia thinks of tigers, of predators’ eyes in the dark, of hot green jungles halfway across the world in countries she’ll never see.

    Summary

    Ophelia had always been a fool for love and charity. For sighing over the tragic hero, Sigismund, or Lancelot, for all Father would chide her sighs and her brother, Laertes, would make fun of her.

    That her foolishness might lead to her ruin was what every lady was told. Yet how could it be so? When she loved her sweet prince loved her and Hamlet certainly made her believe he loved too.
