Not one, but two!

As is evident from the nature of the exchange, both of these fics have AU settings.

For Truth, For Duty, and for Loyalty (Richard III) by [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen - Richard of Gloucester has a plan for the planet of Albia, and Ratcliffe wants to be part of it. Science fiction AU. Featuring art by [livejournal.com profile] speak_me_fair.

Delirien (1 Henry VI) by [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire - In the giddy years of the early twentieth century, the families of York and Lancaster seem to have come to an uneasy truce when Humphrey Lancaster befriends young Richard York and offers him a chance to mend his wrecked fortunes. What neither of them anticipates is the war that will destroy everything they know. Featuring a fanmix by [livejournal.com profile] cherith and art by [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen.

Both links are to the index pages, which include information about the artists as well.

Character(s)/Pairing(s): Hal/Hotspur
Warnings: Wine, women, and hatesex song.
Rating: R for dodgy garment history, as well as Ennodius quotations and the illustration thereof.
Summary: In an abstract sense, Hal was aware that a prince ought to be present at his father's triumphal tournaments.
Notes: Written in response to Histories Ficathon Madness, in a fit of (what else?) madness. Intended purely for delight rather than education; sorry this was a trifle late.

Richard's first friend is a servant, he thinks--a quick-eyed, narrow-fingered boy who steals into the princess's gardens when the boughs are heavy with blossoms and the thickets leaf-roughened. )

Title: The Giving Vein
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen
Play: Richard III
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] the_alchemist
Characters/Pairing: Richard III/Buckingham
Warnings: D/s play, mentions of bloodplay
Rating: R (more for darkness than explicitness)
Summary: Buckingham must play the loyal footstool once more before his flight.

The king prefers to see Buckingham on his knees, hands clasped behind his back in a semblance of restraint. )

Title: Slovenly Unhandsome
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen
Play: Richard II and 1 Henry IV
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] lite_bright
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Hotspur, Kate, Hal
Warnings: Historical AU
Rating: PG-13
Notes: [livejournal.com profile] lite_bright's prompt was enticingly nonspecific, so I took a few ideas from it (student AU, unpleasant Hal, Percy Sr.) and ran away laughing. Hope that works for the recipient!
Summary: War is Hell; reconstruction is purgatory. Hotspur recuperates from World War II.

After the war, Hotspur doesn't trot off to school like what mates he had could afford it--smacks to him of middle-class pretensions, and he's one to call a spade a spade. While everybody's lucky charm Prince Harry is nancing about in Cambridge or Oxford or wherever the fuck he went, Hotspur's helping to rebuild fucking Germany. )
