    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.
