    Summary

    This story takes place in October 1813, after Chapter 34 of The Corinthian's Lady and before the Epilogue. I've been thinking about Lady Luttrell as a sort of middle-aged Grand Sophy or Emma Woodhouse, trying to manipulate the little world around her to make it work in the way she wants. And she's not the only one; you may find Mrs Daubenay reminds you of another lady of your acquaintance. There's nothing much to this, but I had fun with it.

    Summary

    It's possible some people reading The Corinthian's Lady have been wondering if I am going to Go There. Well, I am. I know some reviewers of the original novel have suggested - given a couple of things Louisa and Cedric say about his past - that Sir Richard is not entirely, exclusively heterosexual. Perhaps he isn't. (There are also some odd reviews that suggest that his being gay is why he falls for Pen dressed as a boy, but I'm not sure *that's* really how human sexuality works. He knows she's a girl, we can be absolutely sure, right from the beginning, because he's had his hands on her body, which I've never seen anyone mention. There is a LOT more *accidental* (or is it?) physical contact between the protagonists in Corinthian than is usual in Heyer).

    Some people don't like fanfic that could be seen as undermining the central relationship, which is why I've posted this separately. (Also it's much more explicit). But I hope you will agree that I'm not trying to do that here. Quite the reverse, in fact. But when Sir Richard described his romantic past to Pen in chapter 16 of A Corinthian's Lady, he didn't go into much detail, and he might also have left something out...
