9 Works in Taming of the Shrew - Shakespeare

Listing Works

    Summary

    Short synopsis: Kate and Petruchio return home post-final-curtain, and celebrate their confoundment of Kate's family by returning their relationship to its normal dynamic.

    This fic is especially for those who might find The Taming of the Shrew a bit . . . problematic, even through a historical lens, unless heavy doses of mitigating subtext are projected into the mix. This is subtext that may help, or at least make a difference. (Or possibly ruin the play for you forever, in which case, oops, you probably should have read the tags and warnings more carefully.)

    Warnings: BDSM (consensual); some sexual content

    Summary

    “Now, I shall tell you a tale. This is a tale long past telling, as it has been a decade since the events took place. Many of you shall be amazed at what I am about to recollect - though I would wager there are those of you who remember how things once were.

    “This, then, is the tale I call ‘The Taming of the Agent’.”

    Summary

    There's so much of Shakespeare's plays that we don't see - how do relationships start? What happens when characters are offstage? How do these relationships continue after the play ends? An assignment I did for my Shakespeare class - well, and some added bits. The two heftiest chapters are Titus Andronicus and the Henry plays.

    Summary

    TV producer George Plantagenet desperately wanted the network to pick up his new comedy series. But his brother Ed, the CEO of the Plantagenet Alliance Network, would not give in unless George cast Anne Neville, the most difficult and bitchy actress, as his female lead. Richard Plantagenet is Ed and George's younger brother who was hoping a big break on small screen.

    Inspired by "Taming of the Shrew" and "50 Shades of Grey".
