    Summary

    "But complicating it all was the fact that this man had invaded her kingdom, slaughtered her people, demanded her hand in marriage as a prize. The man who treated her gently had her at his mercy. She was his spoils of war, and for that she ought to hate him.

    She did hate him. Why else would her spirit thrill that morning, when he debased himself and gave her pleasure? Why else would she pursue the ideas it provoked—pursuing them silently, with no outward suggestion, but with constancy, like a nun bending to her rosary?"

    In her quest to master her husband, Catherine of France looks to Henry's past and finds an unexpected ally.

    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.
