    Summary

    According to Greek Mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings, condemning them to spend their lives in search of their other halves.

    Summary

    "I want to be free. Free to be the woman I see in my dreams, not the marionette everyone else want me to be." Melbourne nodded at her, understanding her emotional outburst and pulled her into his arms. "You are free with me, Victoria." He whispered. "Never fear that."

    All her life Victoria was lead and pressured by her family, her life was never her own but for the first time she can grab for a new chance, far away from the familiar surroundings, and try to be the woman she always wanted to be. On her way she meets a mysterious older man, surprising her with his kindness and interest. For the first time in her life she learns what it means to be loved by someone without second thoughts and to her surprise it will change everything she ever knew.

    Summary

    Victoria is allowing her temper to get the better of her. She needs an outlet, she seeks a release. Her Prime Minister, Lord Melbourne, suggests a way she may achieve this.
    There are two slightly different versions of this, depending on your personal preferences. This one is with a virgin Victoria.
    The other, called 'Release (not the first time)', has her with prior vanilla sexual experience.
    For Vicbourne, this is intense and without frills. It's a one-shot. They don't hang about. Read the tags. Enter with caution.

    There are two slightly different versions of this, depending on your personal preferences. This one is with a non-virgin Victoria (and married to Albert).
    The other, called 'Release (first time)', has her as a virgin.

    Summary

    Following is a comprehensive list of music, with links to YouTube, for all the amazing music that inspired and guided the different chapters of Second Chances.

    From the familiar to the perhaps obscure, these songs all in some way connected thematically to the journey of Victoria and Lord M. Where possible, I tried to link to the official music video, but some of these, alas, don’t have one. There are one or two exceptions to this where the live version was entirely more interesting to watch, so I have linked to that instead, and for others, the link is more or less audio only.

    Anyway, these are numbered according to the chapter where this song's lyrics were featured. Whether you'd like to listen to an old favorite, or find a song you don't know to hear what it sounds like, I hope you will enjoy this list and it will be a nice companion to Second Chances.

    I have to thank Daphne_Fredricksen for the smashing idea of doing this! She did this herself with her awesome Man in the High Castle fic, "Roadhouse Blues", so I pinched the idea from her. :)

    Happy listening!

    Summary

     

    A "wibbly wobbly, timey wimey" tale containing many adventures for Victoria & Lord M, in which they get to explore history firsthand, and their own feelings for each other along the way. Fair warning--while the author has a deep respect for history, along with a passion for historical accuracy in many things, it is the intention of this work to deliberately break away from the tyranny of it with respect to a certain pair of star-crossed lovers in particular. This is in no way a guarantee of a happy or sad ending and should not be viewed as such. Rather, it is the hope of the author that the reader can view the history of Victoria and Lord M as entirely open and unwritten. Other disclaimers--the laws of time and the universe in general may not always be as binding in this tale as we are accustomed to. Also, some degree of poetic license may be claimed in the portrayal of some supporting characters. That is the fun of fiction, after all. Oh, and one other thing: this fic stars Jenna Coleman as Victoria and Rufus Sewell as Lord Melbourne, featuring Cate Blanchett as Elizabeth I and Cary Elwes as Brian of Medway.

    Summary

    Created for the **DARK VICBOURNE FEST** and the Facebook group, "For the Love of Vicbourne".

    Vicbourne meets Fever...
    This is a AU mashup of Victoria, and Karen Marie Moning's masterful Fever series. Setting: Ireland. Time period: Current. Genre: Urban Fantasy.

    Victoria Alexander is fulfilling a life-long dream working at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, in the archeology department. She has landed the best of all jobs--assistant to the program's founder, the dashingly handsome Dr. William Lamb. But all is not what it seems. There is something odd about Dublin, the people she meets, and especially Dr. Lamb. When she accompanies Dr. Lamb on her first archeological dig in the UK, their discoveries will open up a world she never knew existed, and force her to choose whether or not to follow her own heart to whatever end.

    Victoria is played by Jenna Coleman, Dr. William Lamb by Rufus Sewell, and Jericho Barrons by David Gandy. Ryodan and all the MacKeltars are uncast. All other supporting characters and cast that appear from Victoria are played by the same actors as are on the show.

    Summary

    While not exactly a parody per se, this work does borrow a bit from the Charles Dickens' classic, A Christmas Carol, in terms of some of its structure and basic concepts. The story opens one Christmas eve before Albert reappears in Victoria's life and takes place almost entirely at Brocket Hall. In the mind of the author, Victoria is played by Jenna Coleman and Lord Melbourne by Rufus Sewell.

    **This was written as a contribution for the Vicbourne Advent Calendar event of 2018 on the Facebook group, For the Love of Vicbourne--Victoria and Lord Melbourne. If you enjoy this work, come check out our group!**
