    Summary

    Even a genius can be a fool in love.

    When young Will Shaksper arrives in London to peddle his poems, he has no idea what he’s in for. Meaning to stay for just a few days, he’s thrown completely off course when he meets Kit Marlowe. Charismatic and dangerous, this wunderkind of verse takes an eager interest in the newcomer. Before Will knows it, their shared passion for poetry has transformed into an attraction as irresistible as it is forbidden.

    Because this is the sixteenth century. Love between men isn’t just frowned on, it can lead to the gallows. When Kit is called away on a state mission, Will does his best to suppress the feelings he doesn’t even have a name for.

    But how can he write when his muse is gone? Why does Kit keep disappearing? And what’s the awful secret that makes his eyes echo with a lifetime of pain?

     

    Author's note: Oh, and maybe I should mention: this is also a published novel (mine, never fear!), but I don't know... I wanted it here, because it's the fan fiction to end all my others. Such a labour of love.

    Summary

    It's 3am. It is, according to some, the hour of the devil. According to one Will Shakespeare, it is simply the time when Kit's favourite pub kicks out all drunken patrons. And for some accursed reason, Kit thinks that he best thing to do then, is drunk dialing his former seminar leader to slur poetry into his ear and ask to be picked up "please, Shakes, please, you're my only hope."

    Please, no one else cares, no one else cares enough to make sure I don't die in a ditch, he doesn't say, but William hears it loud and clear underneath the bawdy puns and drunken brilliance.

    Summary

    Они расстались августовской ночью, полной звезд, крупной солью рассыпанных по темному бархату неба. Одна вдруг сорвалась и упала — ярко, быстро перечеркнув собой небосвод. Но прежде, чем она коснулась горизонта, Кит успел загадать желание, глупое и простое: «Хочу, чтобы мы снова встретились». Но веры в нем уже тогда было меньше кончика иглы, на котором танцевали и танцевали, исколов босые пятки, ангелы.

    Summary

    Summary

    Written for the 12DaysChristmas challenge on LJ, (Prompt "open book")

    Historical RPF - Shakespeare/Marlowe (although could just as easily be the Shakespeare and Marlowe from Shakespeare in Love, as I am certainly envisaging those actors.)

    Will shares a ferryboat with a man as beguiling as the demons he creates.

    Summary

    Kit, ink-splattered, flashing glint in the eyes, head barely raised from the paper, would be how Will would remember him best. He would look up, ‘Master Shakes-scene’ he would drawl, ‘have you come to see me?’

    The wit of Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare was not always used for the poetical. Sometimes it was simply directed at each other.

    Summary

    Most people lose their keys their wallet, their marbles. Kit Marlowe did not lose any of these. He lost his book. He had plenty of books. But this one, this precious one, is gone. And he had his idea on who is responsible for the volume's untimely disappearance.

    Summary

    Shakespeare brings back a whole Department's worth of books, Prospero can't live without his daughter, and Ariel is particularly happy to annoy him with his weird taste in music. Overall, just another day at the library.
