    Summary

    All children play games, and all children grow up, and so if you should meet someone as an adult who played the same games you did as a child, perhaps it isn't so strange. Cultural influences and whatnot and so forth and doesn't every child dream of lions?

    All the characterization is so good! The Friends of Narnia are all here and it's wonderful.

    Post-finale Hour fic. Not so much resolution as continued pain.

    Summary

    A few years into his reign, Henry IV is troubled to learn of mystic attracting followers to his revels in the Forest of Hainault. Some say he's a saint or prophet, others that he's a vision of Christ himself. Many have noticed that he resembles the old king, Richard II.

    Prince Hal - always curious about the latest novelty - takes his friends to see, but his cynicism melts away in the presence of the charismatic, kingly figure, and so eventually does his sanity.

    Henry must take action to restore order to his family and his kingdom, but what chance does order stand against this powerful and delicious chaos?

    A reworking of Euripides' Bacchae in the world of medieval Christianity and Shakespeare's histories.
