    Summary

    The CW's tv show Reign is great if you don't know anything about the time period. If you're obsessed with historical dramas and the Tudor era, then the show "leaves something to be desired," this does not.

    Summary

    In 1850, the Finnish people dethroned the Romanovs and put their own leader on the throne in order to stop the Russification of the Finnish people which also stopped the Russification of other ethnic minorities in the land stretching from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific. Tsar Nicholas I was murdered by extremists who themselves were executed, while his wife Alexandra Feodorovna (Charlotte of Prussia), their children and grandchildren living in Russia were exiled to France and barred from ever entering Russian grounds until the ban was lifted in the future.
    In 1890, the Finnish Tsar, the leader of the Finnish Rebellion, died of a stroke, leaving the throne to his youngest son produced with his 3rd wife, the only son he had to survive childhood.
    The almost 17-year-old was crowned after the mourning period, in which the Royal advisors began looking for a suitable wife for their new monarch.

    Summary

    The youngest generation of the Ancient and Most Noble House of Black is rather close in age (or, really, they mathematically should be).

    There are the sisters: angelic Narcissa, sensible Andromeda, and loyal Bellatrix, and of course, the brothers, the wild Heir and the dutiful Spare: Sirius and Regulus—all five bound together by shared nursery promises and blood.

    Yet, Sirius still is sorted into Gryffindor, Andromeda still runs off with a muggleborn, Bellatrix still begins to lose her mind, Narcissa still does as she is told, and Regulus… Regulus still joins the Dark Lord.

    He still goes to the cave.

    He doesn’t leave alone.

    TLDR: how The Black Family embodies the Big, Screwed-Up Family Trope. “though if you piss off one of them, the rest will instantly band together to destroy you in order to uphold the Family Honor.”

    [AU of the First Wizarding War in which a Horcrux muddles the conception of Toujours Pur and The Family, dysfunctional though it may be, finds a third side in the war.

    Or: blood purity is *as* important as the near death of their children to the Elder Generation of the House of Black.]

    Summary

    "For weeks," Olha continues, "you've been snappish and paranoid. Yuriy Ivanovich betrayed your trust, so you decide that you're surrounded by traitors. You shout unreasonable things at your friends, and afterwards you fall into the arms of a woman ten years your junior whom you hardly know. Sleeping with your subordinate! Really, Vasya!"

    "You're all my subordinates," Vasya points out.

    "That's different. We are here to stage an intervention."

    Summary

    Athens allies begrudgingly with Sparta in a time of great need. They could not be more different: Athenian philosophy to Sparta's bleak realism. Athenian comfort to Spartan starkness. The sun and the moon. As the poets say, though: opposites attract.

    Summary

    Charles XII, King of Sweden (AKA the Swedish Meteor or Carolus Rex, if you felt like some extraneous Latin), had expected he would face God one day, but he certainly didn't expect that when he did, he would be given a second chance at life in another world- he wasn't entirely sure what this 'smartphone' thing was, but he'd figure it out.

    Summary

    Born of love, tarnished by the scandal of illegitimacy, and wholly determined to make something of herself: this is the Becoming of Selina Bridgerton.

    Chapter 33: Selina Meets Miss Katharine Sharma
    Selina turned fully towards her and saw a handsome, middle-aged woman with dark eyes and an abundance of dark curls twisted and fashioned into a simple knot. There was an openness in her manner, a lightness Selina had not encountered in a long time.
    Yes, Selina thought as she eyed the trimness of the lady’s waist and the lack of ring on her finger, here was a woman unburdened.
