" 'Three Richards the Third walk into a pub.' He enunciated each word with great precision.
'One,' continued Dickon, 'the hideous misbegotten monster who limped from the dark places which shadow the minds even of geniuses and saints.'
Hudde spoke over him. 'The other,' he said, 'the chivalrous knight who strode shining from the earnest yet woefully untalented pens of Horace Walpole and the many enthusiastic spinsters who followed in his wake.'
'And then there was the third Richard...' "

'...for... a... horse!' And a one, and a two, and forward, and twist, and above my head, and back. Pause. )

Title: The Booke of Oure Foundresses

Author: [livejournal.com profile] the_alchemist
Play: Henry VI Part 2
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] roz_mcclure
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Margaret/Suffolk
Warnings: Quite a lot of exuberant sex, not very graphically described; egregious anachronism; a smidgeon of melancholy, and some heavy-handed dramatic irony.

Rating: 15

Historical Notes:
- Margaret calls Suffolk Jack or Jackanapes because Wikipedia says his nickname was Jack Napes, so it must be true.
- Queens' College Cambridge was founded in 1448 by Margaret of Anjou, refounded in 1465 by Elizabeth Woodville and in 1484, Richard said the college existed by the "patronage of our aforesaid consort".
Note of ThanksThanks to my beta readers [livejournal.com profile] atreic and [livejournal.com profile] borusa.
Summary: Margaret tries to go off for a dirty weekend with Suffolk, but ends up accidentally founding a college instead.

To whosoever discovers this volume, a warning. )

Title: An awfully big adventure
Author: [livejournal.com profile] the_alchemist
Play: Richard III; not as canonical as it might be
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] aris_tgd
Characters: Richard III; tiny Richard of York
Warnings: um... none? It's a bit bleak though.
Rating: PG?
Notes: I'm not sure this fulfills the brief as well as it could do. You asked for musing, but I'm all about plot, so I tried to fit musing into plot, and the musing might have got a bit edged out. I'm pretty sure there aren't 1000 words of it. Sorry. [In fact, there are 2297. -- ed.]
Summary: Richard III goes to the Tower to visit the younger of the two boys he imprisoned there...

'Who's there?' The boy huddled in the corner of the room, sitting on a pile of blankets, hugging a pillow: the bed was too big, too exposed to lie in. 'Who's there?' His candle ran out a long time ago, he couldn't tell how long. 'Who's there? Edward? Is that you?' )

Rating: um... PG?
Summary: The ghost of Richard II sets out to take revenge on Henry IV and family, enlisting an unexpected helper.

'Mount, mount, my soul. Thy seat is up on high, whilst my gross flesh sinks downward, here to die!' said Richard, and sank backwards. )

Hello! This is an extra bonus histories!fic I wrote because I'm greedy and the two I managed to get myself in the ficathon weren't quite enough. I'm posting it now in a blatant attempt to harness any waves of expectation currently sweeping the world due to imminent deadline-ness.

Title: The bet; or, Summer Lovin'
Play: vaguely Henry VIish
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Richard not yet Gloucester, let alone III / Margaret of Anjou; Margaret/Suffolk
Rating: PGish

It had been a horribly dreary week. We were staying with the Yorks and there was literally nothing to do. Pole was around, but Henry kept sending him off on stupid errands, and I was expected to spend every day with the Duchess and her ladies. Sometimes I wonder whether my husband knows more than he lets on.
It was not until the fourth night, towards the end of dinner that he finally sat next to me.Read more... )
