    Summary

    “I do envy you. You get to do all this - disreputable friends and adventures thieving and taking princes as your lover.” Nell smiled a little sadly. “What I wouldn't give for a few nights of your life before I become Lady Pearce.”

    Summary

    I’ve always thought chronic heroic syndrome is built in someone’s DNA, that I should just accept that we all live up to our names. I think I do live up to my name, and that is a scary thought to have.

    Henry 'Hal' Lancaster doesn't want to follow the path of his family business in medicine, but to say that he doesn't like the taste of death would be a big lie. Modern AU based on The King (2019) cast, and for those characters who weren't in that movie, I'll leave the rest for your imagination to run wild

    Summary

    He reached his hand down to feel around for any food, but felt only the hand mirror that had lived on this floor for some few months now: the one thing of Hal’s that he hadn’t sold or thrown away yet. Yet.

    Summary

    Ned Poins was a young gentleman of good family, but bad morals. He was one of those loyal natures who, in all ages, are to be found attaching themselves instinctively to some great man, taking their tone and colour in all things from the illustrious model. Mr. Poins cut his hair and his conscience in exact imitation of the Prince of Wales. The existing court fashions, as established by the Prince, were long hanging sleeves, pointed shoes, late hours, intoxication, and roistering. Mr. Poins followed them all with scrupulous fidelity; but was quite ready to change them for sad-coloured doublets, square toes, early rising, temperance, and respectability, at a moment's notice.

    Summary

    A collection of ficlet requests for various ships and characters sent to me on Tumblr. Essentially perpetually in progress. Being ficlet requests, most of them are fairly short. The majority are related to the Henriad.

    Summary

    The King is dead. Long live King Henry V. But, before anyone finds out, Prince Hal sits in the corner of the tavern whilst his friend, his confidante, Ned Poins watches from a distance. He does not yet know that this is the last night he will see his sweet prince. Prince Hal is all too aware.

    Summary

    AU in which Lord Scroop and Ned Poins are the same person.

    (I was rereading Henry V, and thinking about Lord Scroop. If he and Henry were so close, then maybe shouldn’t we have met him in Henry IV?)

    Summary

    Falstaff will arrive with a great bellow: Hal my boy! You incorrigible saint, up and walking. Let’s see how we can corrupt you today! and Hal will smirk. He never drinks as much sack as he seems to, so Falstaff is right without knowing. Falstaff jests about Hal's seemingly endless tolerance and Hal feels the power riding in his hands, the line of his neck, in the set of his face. This is one of the moments that make up for the stress of playing a role and the fear of his plan taking him too deep: the knowledge that every man and girl in the Boar’s looks to him.
     
    And the tide keeps coming in, and the lions are all dead.
     
    Hal drifts in and out of the Boar's Head.

    Summary

    For the prompt: "Hal returns home from France alive au, Ned Poins and Hal meet again, preferably with an apology on Hal's part."

    Set in the summer of 1422, after the French campaign which, in this version of events, Henry survives... just. As after the campaign of 1415, he decides to make a pilgrimage, but the circumstances are different, and so is he.

    Summary

    They all have their sacrilegious things, but Ned knows he’s the worst offender, never mind that Hal’s friend Falstaff has literally cussed out the Trinity while standing at the altar--because while everyone is busy thinking (or trying to think) holy thoughts during service on Sundays, Ned prays to Richard.

    Summary

    Welcome to Channel 33, WKTE, managed by Henry Bolingbroke and undermined by everyone else. Gratuitous references to broadcasting, obsolete technology, and Shakespeare's view of the history of England abound as Mr. Bolingbroke and his team fight to save the station. Good luck.

    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.
