    Summary

    Richard, Duke of Gloucester, is 29 years old and needs a break from snide whispers before he just stabs someone. But in his place of sanctuary is a beautiful stranger -Khan Noonien Singh, victim of a time surge after an experiment goes wrong. At first it seems they'll fight, but then other kinds of duelling seem more appealing.

    But these two men are making bad choices, and their fates are written in the stars. Will their souls ever learn to make better choices? How long will it take them to find each other again, and what will they have to learn before they do?

    Summary

    for likeadeuce for the prompt "Harry Percy is a werewolf. However you want this to work -- werewolf Percies versus vampire Lancasters in epic battle; or an urban fantasy high school AU where Kate is the skeptical mortal girl who fights crime with him. My ships are Hotspur/Kate, Hotspur/Hal, Hotspur/Hal/Kate, Hotspur/Aumerle and Hotspur/Falstaff, so any combination of these is A+, though gen is also fine." Also an attempt to solve the problem some productions have when Northumberland speaks BBC English and Hotspur in the Northumbrian/Geordie dialect. Too many pop-culture references. tw: for one classist slur near the start of the fic.
