    Summary

    Midnight.
     
    1815.

    Anthony opened the front door of Bridgerton House, (having, Kate presumed, already unlocked it before she arrived), and Grosvenor Square stood before them, blanketed in snow, the streetlights blinking dimly in the night.

    Out with the old and in with the new.

    -

    Or, Anthony and Kate celebrate New Year’s Eve 1814.

    Colin Bridgerton falls off his horse at age twenty-one and laughs. It’s a full-body laugh, bright and bold and gut-wrenching, as if his soul is finally free.

    -

    Or, now that Colin knows Penelope is his soulmate, he vows to make her laugh in his presence so she can be his too.

    Summary

    Gathering together all of my one-shots and missing scenes pertaining to Kate and Anthony's peak confusion: Aubrey Hall through the "I Love You" breakthrough. They are roughly in my own chronological order but do not necessarily build upon each other. Just wanted to organize these pieces for my own sanity.

    Summary

    Anthony and Kate attend their first ball as a married couple.

    Among other things, the evening features: fireworks, jealousy, a heartfelt conversation, a minor disagreement about duelling, and a performance from London’s third most notorious opera singer, Miss Siena Rosso.

    Somehow, they still manage to have rather a nice time.

    Summary

    Slowly, carefully, the gentleman pulls out a gold pocket watch and lays it down on the work-table. All his urgency seems to drain away as he looks forlornly down at the old, slightly battered thing.

    “It’s broken,” he says quietly.

    He sounds like that too. Broken.

    Summary

    There are husbands, and then there are Husbands.

    Anthony Bridgerton is a Husband.

    At least that’s what Kate insists when she stumbles home from Lady Danbury’s latest soirée, slurring her words and smelling of sherry.

    Apparently it’s a compliment.

    Summary

    Kate Sharma was seventeen years old when the life she dreamed of slipped from between her fingers, leaving her to make a new path for herself. Ten years later, Kate’s been working as a governess, assigned to a new post working for Lord Bridgerton, a devastatingly handsome widower with two small sons. From the moment four-year-old Miles’ tiny fingers find hers, Kate starts falling, and she keeps going, right into the delicious, illicit, welcoming arms of the Viscount.

    Meanwhile, Anthony Bridgerton had gotten exactly what he wanted: a loveless marriage that produced nothing but loneliness and the two tiny loves of his life. When he finds himself unexpectedly widowed, Anthony vows to make a happier life moving forward. And his plans come to fruition when he meets his lovely new governess.

    But Kate has a secret: a secret that both ruined her life and keeps her safe. Until it doesn’t, and Anthony's and Kate’s lives once more take an unexpected turn.

    Summary

    Canon-divergent: what if there was no bee that day in the garden?

    After a perfectly normal day with no bees and no forced engagements, Anthony Bridgerton comes to the conclusion that he can't marry Edwina Sheffield after all. The problem is, he can't marry Kate either. When a man knows he isn't long for this world, he can't afford to form any lasting attachments, and that includes falling in love.

    Unfortunately for Anthony, his siblings do not subscribe to this theory.

    “This won’t do.”

     

    “Do elaborate,” she says when he does not speak, tilting her head.

     

    Grimacing, Anthony leans in and rests his hands on his thighs, his chair creaking with the shift of his weight. “Your leg.”
