    Summary

    Falstaff will arrive with a great bellow: Hal my boy! You incorrigible saint, up and walking. Let’s see how we can corrupt you today! and Hal will smirk. He never drinks as much sack as he seems to, so Falstaff is right without knowing. Falstaff jests about Hal's seemingly endless tolerance and Hal feels the power riding in his hands, the line of his neck, in the set of his face. This is one of the moments that make up for the stress of playing a role and the fear of his plan taking him too deep: the knowledge that every man and girl in the Boar’s looks to him.
     
    And the tide keeps coming in, and the lions are all dead.
     
    Hal drifts in and out of the Boar's Head.

    Summary

    The prompt here was "a huis clos AU with Hal, Hotspur, and Falstaff." So that is what this is. Sartre's take on psychological torture and the terrors of existence gets a Shakespearean remix.

    Set in the summer of 1422, after the French campaign which, in this version of events, Henry survives... just. As after the campaign of 1415, he decides to make a pilgrimage, but the circumstances are different, and so is he.

    Summary

    Welcome to Channel 33, WKTE, managed by Henry Bolingbroke and undermined by everyone else. Gratuitous references to broadcasting, obsolete technology, and Shakespeare's view of the history of England abound as Mr. Bolingbroke and his team fight to save the station. Good luck.

    Summary

    Two scenes from Henry IV Part Two, in Irish Civil War AU.

    *

    Advisory: it's the Irish Civil War so everything is fairly awful, but no graphic violence; strong misogynistic language, sexism, non-canonical character death, canonical character death, betrayal, judicial and extra-judicial killing.
