Title: The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Author: [livejournal.com profile] the_alchemist
Plays: Henry VI Parts 2-3, Henry IV Part 1
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] gehayi
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Richard [the not yet] III; Margaret/Suffolk; Margaret/Henry; Edmund Mortimer; Lady Mortimer; the rest of the York family; Bolingbroke; Margaret Jourdain; 'a bard of Ireland'.
Warnings: moderate violence and gore; one bit of icky non-consensual panty-sniffing; about as much fidelity towards Shakespeare!canon as Shakespeare had towards history!canon.
Rating: 15
Summary: Kind of like 'Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer', if 'Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer' contained considerably more necromancers, pirates, blood, death, sexual perversion and, of course, Plantagenets.

'... but why not?' The Duke of York smiled, and laid his hand on his wife's shoulder. )

Title: The Further Education of a Christian Prince; or, Why everything that happened afterward was the fault of Humphrey of Gloucester
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire
Play: Somewhere during 1 Henry VI.
Character(s): John, Duke of Bedford; Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester; Henry VI
Summary: In the end, they both had to do it. It was possibly the most excruciating half-hour in the lives of both brothers. And that included Agincourt.
Notes: This is utter and complete crackfic, though with a surprisingly sober ending--it has come to my attention that no fic involving Henry VI can possibly end well. Title is an adaptation of Erasmus' Education of a Christian Prince. This fic is the fault of [livejournal.com profile] angevin2, who was kind enough to beta-read it for me. ;) And, yes, it also has footnotes.

This is what happens when you spend far too much time talking about the hangups of members of the House of Lancaster. )

Title: Mea culpa
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire
Play: Henry VI, all three parts
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] cesario
Character(s)/Pairing(s): King Henry VI
Rating: G, I think. Nothing in here except gen and angst.
Summary: Henry had only ever wanted to be good. And that was not enough for kings.

Once upon a time, a Henry killed a Richard. )

Title: Guinevere
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire
Play: Mostly 2 Henry VI, but references to Part I.
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] roz_mcclure
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Margaret/Suffolk, Henry/Margaret
Summary: The wind whipped through his bright hair, just as Margaret's fingers had on the day they first met. Her own serpent in that garden in Anjou, promising all the world in a smile that set her heart pounding like the drums that called her father to war. A war she had ended with her marriage to King Henry.
Rating: PG13
Notes: The request was for Margaret/Suffolk with particular emphasis on snark and double-dealing. This ended up with somewhat more angst than I had intended, but I hope you enjoy!

Ladies in romances were never seasick. )
