3 Works in Philippe-Jules Mancini duc de Nevers
Philippe’s relationship with sex has always been complicated and something he’s never admitted to anyone.
Anon on Tumblr prompted me 'Monchevy prompt for you: "Do you believe in soulmates?"' yesterday, so here is the resulting fic.
Philippe’s grandmother dangled the compass over him, repeating his name in a soft voice, and laid it beside the baby’s head, placing the body of the compass in his little hand. It fit perfectly in his newborn palm, and inside the lid, the needle went from static north-north-east (his grandmother’s location, as the soulmate of his grandfather) to spinning endlessly around and around, searching for someone not yet born.
An afternoon in the life of 18-year-old Philippe, younger brother of King Louis XIV.
