    Summary

    Durmonyás was definitely not worried about Boricz, who had been out in the snow for possibly a century, or at least several hours. Humans were used to this sort of thing, after all, and he'd been wearing a hat made of some extremely furry animal that was probably even more used to this sort of thing.

    In which Boricz finally attempts to teach Durmonyás about the fun part of winter. Established relationship in handwavy fix-it universe.

    Summary

    "It's Carthage and there hasn't even been a proper fight, only a whole lot of droning on about honor. If I wanted that I'd ask my father; at least he doesn't do it in verse."

    Tybalt and Mercutio meet at a very bad play. Words are said, eyelashes batted, and no one gets stabbed (that way...or the other way...yet).

    (Canon levels of misogyny on Mercutio's part; based on the Hungarian musical production but probably relatively Shakespeare-compatible, aside from a few brief references.)

    Summary

    Javert goes undercover at a Bouzingo party, gets stoned, and meets Enjolras. The experience is confusing.

    Esteliel asked for "Undercover Javert confused by Enjolras' seductive trancelike dancing" and I did my best to deliver it in canon era. Complete crack.

    Summary

    In Prohibition New York, Tebaldo Cappallett struggles with his feelings—for his cousin Julie, who's bobbed her hair and is suddenly far too grown-up, and for a boy he met a long time ago and tried to forget.

    This time, nobody dies. But it's close.

    (There is some faintly implied temporary suicidal ideation on Tybalt's part (much like canon, I think), faint hints of internalized homophobia, and of course Tybalt and Julia are cousins, if that kind of thing squicks you.)

    Summary

    "You." Romeo returned his attention to Tybalt, poking him in the chest for emphasis before he could flinch away. "You are altogether too severe as well. It's a party, isn't it? Or are you security, too serious to smile on the job?"

    "You might say that."

    "Well," said Romeo, "Half Verona's partying. Even Capulet can't object to one little dance."

    A meeting at a ball on biopunk dystopia Verona.

    "What am I supposed to do, papercut His Majesty the Pure-hearted Earth Clod over there to death?"

    Summary

    The king of Bithynia is not what he expected, and young Caesar finds it is perhaps not quite so simple to separate personal pleasure from political expediency as he first thought.

    Summary

    Count Paris returns to Verona and finds everything tiresomely unchanged—with the exception of one intriguingly grown-up Tybalt Capulet.

    Summary

    Mozart is sleep-deprived and maybe a little mad, and practically daring his boss Archbishop Colloredo to kiss him seems like a good idea at the time, at least for as long as it takes him to suggest it.

    Summary

    In his face there is no human pity, no understanding of her pain.

    If there had been, perhaps she would have hated him less.

    Elisabeth has sympathy for Death, once, but it's a long journey to get there.

    Boricz and Durmonyás bond over being the odd man out, with the help of some very strong fairy wine.

    Summary

    He would not be afraid. He was a valued hostage, and whatever indignity, whatever humiliation he had to bear, he would do it gladly for his country.

    Summary

    Durmonyás accidentally lets slip that he doesn't really mind the whip. Unfortunately, Bakszén has a tendency to ruin things by talking. (Set in an AU where Bakszén's attempted coup never goes so far and things remain light-hearted and cracky.)

    (Based on the rock operetta Ördögölő Józsiás - Józsiás the Devil-Slayer - by Tolcsvay László and Bori Tamás, in turn based on the 1952 play by Tamási Áron.)
