    Summary

    '...But perchance it was not that at all. No, perhaps it was his eyes, his deeply shadowed, astonishingly pale eyes, that touched the place within her where no one had dared venture before, for fear of the diabolism that lay therein. Like chips of January ice, cutting and raw, they snapped up to meet her own too suddenly for comfort, narrowing briefly into invisibility before widening once more, baring to her unexpectedly ravenous soul a stunning acuity and choking, yet liberating fire. O, that fire, that bright and baleful gleam! It was one she knew well, too well: one she saw reflected within herself every moment. It was a fire of ambition: ruthless ambition, and passion, and an inherent danger that set some girlishly ignominious part of her soul, that she had thought lay dormant in her aspish breast, to blazing, alight with the searing black glow of glorious villainy....'

    Summary

    "Come Lammas-eve at night shall she be fourteen.
    Susan and she - God rest all Christian souls! -
    Were of an age: well, Susan is with God;
    She was too good for me: but, as I said,
    On Lammas-eve at night shall she be fourteen;
    That shall she, marry; I remember it well.
    'Tis since the earthquake now eleven years;
    And she was wean'd - I never shall forget it..."

    Still grieving for the loss of her own daughter, the new nurse arrives on the Capulet's doorstep.

    Summary

    "O heat, dry up my brains! tears seven times salt,
    Burn out the sense and virtue of mine eye!
    By heaven, thy madness shall be paid by weight,
    Till our scale turn the beam. O rose of May!
    Dear maid, kind sister, sweet Ophelia!
    O heavens! is't possible, a young maid's wits
    Should be as moral as an old man's life?"

    A mad sister. A treasonous brother. Both exist as they were in each other's memories alone.

    Summary

    Acantha is a young woman of eighteen when she is married off to Caius Martius Coriolanus--a man known as a consul, a general, a soldier, and a man with a terrible temper, who has seen more battles than nearly any other man in the Roman Empire. And won each one. Acantha must now face her duties as a wife, woman of the household, and mother to Coriolanus' two young sons from his late first wife. But while Acantha comes to care for the children dearly, her husband remains a stone wall, incapable of emotion or care for either Acantha or his sons. Can Acantha overcome what has been placed before her, or is Coriolanus a man who cannot be helped?

    (Based off of Tom's Hiddleston's Coriolanus.)

    Summary

    "I'll deliver all;
    And promise you calm seas, auspicious gales
    And sail so expeditious that shall catch
    Your royal fleet far off.
    My Ariel, chick,
    That is thy charge: then to the elements
    Be free, and fare thou well!"

    It has been a year since Ariel was released from Prospero's service. Having found a friend in the mischievous Robin Goodfellow, the two ponder the human concept of time, and the universal one of being.

    Summary

    "My stars shine darkly over
    me: the malignancy of my fate might perhaps
    distemper yours; therefore I shall crave of you your
    leave that I may bear my evils alone: it were a bad
    recompense for your love, to lay any of them on you."

    Antonio's final goodbye to Sebastian.

    Summary

    "If we offend, it is with our good will.
    That you should think, we come not to offend,
    But with good will. To show our simple skill,
    That is the true beginning of our end.
    Consider then we come but in despite.
    We do not come as minding to contest you,
    Our true intent is. All for your delight
    We are not here. That you should here repent you,
    The actors are at hand and by their show
    You shall know all that you are like to know."

    Having performed Pyramus and Thisbe better than any of them could have hoped, The Mechanicals meet again to decide what play they should put on next.

    Summary

    Ever since the mysterious death of the White Hart, England has been under the rule of the House of York. The Mortimers, of course, did not take kindly to this. Amidst all the faithless slaughter marring the realm, only the House of Lancaster has remained steadfast in the cause of the crown. But the descendants of John of Gaunt are red-blooded creatures. Henry of Windsor, fourth Duke of Lancaster, is no exception.

    Summary

    "I am a wise fellow, and, which is more, an officer,
    and, which is more, a householder, and, which is
    more, as pretty a piece of flesh as any is in
    Messina, and one that knows the law, go to; and a
    rich fellow enough, go to; and a fellow that hath
    had losses, and one that hath two gowns and every
    thing handsome about him."

    Summary

    Ever since the Yorkists’ first barque took to the air, it had been nothing but trouble for the House of Lancaster. How speedily those wooden birds soared, and how accurately they shot down royal commanding officers! Something had to be done. There were plenty of wizards around in this godforsaken country, after all.
