    She had shivered when he touched her. Eugenides, who had seen the goddess, had wept for the humanness of his queen, and loved her for it.

    Seamless, tonally perfect, gorgeous.

    I'm in awe of this fic: history-perfect and character-spot-on. (La Reine Noire writes the most terrifyingly perfect things, really.)

    Summary

    Somewhere in the haze of disorientation that came with waking up after way too many shots of tequila, Margaret realised she wasn't in her own bed. More importantly, she wasn't alone.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I LOVE THIS FIC, I STAN THIS FIC (and this ship, forever this ship, forever Margaret especially, but forever Margaret/Suffolk), I use this fic to justify my predilection for history-based theatrical!AU, and thing is, once I've directed people to this fic, they understand why. So many of my favorite things in one place, here.

    Summary

    There are two things Thomasina notices when she wakes, coughing, the night before her seventeenth birthday. The first: her bedchamber is on fire (heat exchange only works one way; this is very bad). The second: a large blue box has appeared (it's blue). It has a door, which opens, and through the stinging smoke, Thomasina sees a man step out, and wave his arm.
