Title: This Keen Encounter
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] the_alchemist
Play: Richard III, some 3 Henry VI
Characters / Pairings: Richard of Gloucester, Lady Anne; Richard/Anne
Rating: T
Warnings: Yorks behaving badly
Summary: Was ever woman in this humour wooed? Was ever woman in this humour won?
Notes: I couldn't resist this prompt, in spite of the play itself trying to argue against me. This fic takes some minor liberties with the chronology of Acts 1-2 of R3 in order to explain, among other things, how Clarence ended up with children old enough to talk when he got married in Act 4 of 3H6 and one assumes from the state of Henry VI's corpse that R3 begins within several days (maybe, if you stretch it, several weeks) of the end of 3H6 and that acts 1-2 take place over the space of several more days.

Title: Broken Music
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire
Play: Henry VI and Richard III
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] assimbya
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Margaret of Anjou and Lady Anne Neville
Rating: PG13
Warnings: None
Summary: Edward had requested--he had not begged; her son would never beg, not if she could help it--that she be kind to his bride. And so Margaret would. For his sake. And, perhaps, in memoriam, for a young French princess who had crossed the sea to marry a man she had never met for an alliance she did not understand.
Notes: The plays contradict themselves regarding the ages and birth order of Anne and Isabel Neville; Anne is described as the eldest in 3HVI, and in R3 as the younger. I will be following R3, which reflects the historically correct order. Title comes from Henry V, V.ii.240.

Rating: PG
Summary: He often woke in the night, though the memory of his dreams eluded him. Last night, though, he did not wake because he had not slept, listening instead to the muffled chiming of the hour until morning came. Last night was the last that he was Gloucester, tonight the first that he was King Richard.
