England, 1811. Social status is everything, and the obsession of every parent is to see their children married well. For twenty-year-old Omega Will Graham, life in a small Hertfordshire market town with his father, adopted mother and four half-sisters is tranquil, if a little dull. Until, that is, a party of strangers arrive in the neighbourhood and send every mother within five miles into a frenzy of anticipation. For not only are the newcomers Alpha aristocracy, but one among them - Mr Hannibal Lecter - is the owner of the largest estate in Derbyshire... and single. A pity, then, that Will and Hannibal's first meeting is less than auspicious. But sometimes, fate and circumstance have a way of conspiring to bring together even the most stubborn of individuals...
Ethics & Aesthetics, a Regency ABO romance.
Just when I think I'm done with English inspired accents, they pull me right back in. Not that I am complaining. For fans of the "Overcoming" podfic, and who terribly missed my renditions of that (why you would, I still don't know), here we have something very special. It's the "Pride & Prejudice" crossover we have been dreaming of since these two boys looked at each other. And we have the ever talented, illustrious fragile-teacup (Mrs_Gene_Hunt) to thank for this. I want to personally extend my utmost gratitude to the author for allowing me to tackle this before anyone else got their hands on it. Because if there is one thing I love, it's Omega Verse, regency pieces.
My faithful listeners know how much emphasis I put on musical cues, so here is a fun fact. Opening and closing themes come to us from late-classical composer Ignace Joseph Pleyel. The Austrian-born musician was one of Jane Austen's personal favorites, and she owned many of his sonatinas in here personal collection.
Opening Theme: Ignace Joseph Pleyel - Symphony in G major, Op. 68 (B. 156), II. Adagio
Closing Theme: Ignace Joseph Pleyel - String Quartet in C Major Op. 2 No. 2, II. Adagio Cantabile
