  1. Summary

    So I have all this research I've done on what it was like to be female and live as a man before the tech we have now was mastered, because younger me was nothing if not a terrified AU Hermione trying to find himself in the library stacks. Even tracked down the English translation of "Memoir of a Man's Maiden Years".

    Reidentification happened - by which I mean I am not a man even though I was pretty sure I was for ten years - but I still had all these things about gender and sex in the first half of the twentieth century pinball-bouncing around in my head, and then... then I stumbled onto "YOUR ASSHOLE DAD'S CASTLE IS BACK AGAIN" right when I was playing though Portrait of Ruin for the first time.

    The contrast between "tunic that'd make an early-renaissance Florentine boy on the prowl blush" and "layers and longcoat and every possible way to obscure the lines of one's body that I ever personally used" as two designs for the same character all struck me, and after a few months... the rest, I suppose, is this alternate history. (Chapter one of part 2 was written first.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    keep your hands and arms inside the bathtu - vehicle, because HERE WE GO, the fic i've been anticipating for MONTHS

    this is messy and awful - in terms of subject matter and on-page events, in terms of writing and style it's masterful - and CATHARTIC AS HELL

    Summary

    "Alucard is whittling, sorrow heavy on his brow like a crown of thorns, grief dripping down his form like blood drawn. He barely looks at his hands, but still the shape of a wolf, curled and round, takes form with each strike. Sypha is staring dreamily into their fire, her eyes bright in the darkness, making the fire leap and then fall, leap and then fall."

    The aftermath of even the noblest deed has its repercussions.
