    Summary

    Richard II, retold in a totalitarian Baathist regime in the Middle East, a continuing series
    (I had a prompt "Richard II in a modern setting." Somehow it became this.)

      O, who can hold a fire in his hand
    By thinking on the frosty Caucasus?
    Or cloy the hungry edge of appetite
    By bare imagination of a feast?
    Or wallow naked in December snow
    By thinking on fantastic summer's heat?

    I've been trying to learn more about Middle Eastern politics as I'm writing this, so if you have any questions please ask. I've mainly been focusing on Arab nationalism and Western foreign policy. I think understanding the diversity of beliefs and material conditions in that region are vital for understanding the current conflicts.

    Summary

    Multi-chapter modern AU, or, more properly, a retelling, of Shakespeare's play, Richard II, set in the high-stakes tech industry. Characters and interpretation are based specifically on the 2013-14 RSC production, supplemented where appropriate and necessary eventually with characters, events and so forth from historical Richard II's life. Some chapters have very explicit sex, most do not. Look at the Notes at the start of each chapter to find out what's in store for that chapter.

    Summary

    It was an old tune, strangely sad. The drunken singers seemed to appreciate the sadness all the more because it was not theirs. Hard by the bar an enormously fat old man wiped his eyes, and wiped them again, and then blew his nose with a preposterous snort.

    Summary

    All summer there has been this steady stream of shirtless profile pictures. Ned looks at each one, very quietly. It would be creepy, he has been reliably informed, to like them all. But who would note his name among the others?

    What would you have me do? I am a subject,
    And challenge law: attorneys are denied me.

    " Non era un segreto che lui si intrattenesse con delle prostitute, ma con tutti i problemi che il regno era costretto a sistemare, la sua passione per le donne era l'ultimo di quella lunga lista.
    Chi mai si sarebbe interessato più a quella sua condotta che al grano o alle tasse? "
