    “Mum, the fact that Lydia was the first of us to end up barefoot and pregnant is honestly a source of continual surprise to me.” // As it turns out, Mary Bennet’s internal checklist to Being a Good Person—go to medical school; join Médecins Sans Frontières; save lives—is a somewhat oversimplification of matters.

    Summary

    Will is the son of House Graham, the respected and proud wardens of the north. Or, at least, he was, until King Cordell Dolarhyde decided to execute his family as traitors and Lord Frederick Chilton kidnapped him and tried to sell him to a Dothraki khal to fund an army to take back "his" throne. Too bad Khal Hannibal has no intention of paying for Will when he can just ... take him.

    Summary

    Hannibal planned to keep Will in the dark about his encephalitis so he could watch that brilliant mind burn itself up and become something new. In a world without daemons, he might have got away with it.

    An AU incorporating elements of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series, beginning partway through the first season of Hannibal. Due to the existence of daemons, the course of the Chesapeake Ripper case is drastically altered — and so too is the relationship between Hannibal and Will.

    Fantastic historical AU where The Black Prince makes a predictably faily King of England, at least until his wife Joan of Kent saves the day with compassion and common-sense. Great supporting characterization of Richard II and Anne of Bohemia, as well as a truly intricate and well-thought-out depiction of the Peasants' Revolt that could teach our current politicians a thing or two about defusing politically tense situations.

    Summary

    Gelis prepares for their meeting with care. She is not like Katelina, who wore her unplucked brows as a sign of pride (of her slovenly nature, Gelis had told her during their last quarrel, and now could never repent). Her face, her hair in its careful symmetry, the shape of her body beneath her clothes – these are weapons, to be used for attack or defence as the situation requires. Her first meeting with Nicholas van der Poele in six years requires all of her arsenal.

    Gorgeous, perfectly voiced story that unpicks the complicated brain of Gelis van Borselen and her fraught relationships with her family and, of course, with one Nicholas de Fleury. Everything I wanted in my prompt and a story I'm going to read over and over again.

    Oh, my God. I have no words for this fic other than PERFECT. Kate Percy's voice is absolutely spot-on, the proposal scene between her and Percy is hilariously wonderful, and I turn into an incoherent mess when I try to explain how BRILLIANT Hal is. Just read it. I can't do it justice.

    This fic has a fantastic narrative voice, told from the point of view of an original character, and illustrates the disturbing scenario of Richard of Gloucester joining the rebels led by Jack Cade in 2 Henry VI. Cade's charisma and Richard's sociopathic tendencies are chillingly rendered in a voice that also manages to be incredibly funny.
