Characters: Kate Percy, Harry Percy, Doll Tearsheet, Prince Hal, Falstaff, Mrs Quickly, Pistol
Warnings: Swears (including misogynist ones)

Notes: Modern AU (City of London, Eastcheap)
Summary: That was the problem with working with Harry Percy. For some reason, within ten minutes of starting a conversation with him, Kate's brain short-circuited and she was always left either mouthing wordlessly or finding herself saying things like, "So you thought it would be a good idea to punch Mervyn King at the Budget announcement?"

You couldn't really know where you were going, to get to the Boar's Head.  )

Title: A Thousand Ships
Author: [livejournal.com profile] likeadeuce
Play: Henry IV, Part I
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] speak_me_fair
Summary: It wasn't the first time you met her.
Word count: ~1350
Rating: PGish
Characters: Harry Percy/Kate Mortimer; a little Hal because he wouldn't shut up.
Warnings: Second person. Hotspur being Hotspur. Hal being Hal.
Notes: Canon-compliant, more or less. Obviously, Christopher Marlowe hadn't written about Helen yet, but it seemed like the kind of anachronism Shakespeare would approve of. I didn't do a very good job with the prompt specifics, but I hope this works for you anyway.

Play:Henry IV, Part I, modern AU
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] roz_mcclure, who wanted Percies + unintended disasters, and who also digs Bruce Springsteen, jam sessions, and the North Carolina Tar Heels.
Summary: Kate Mortimer, Harry Percy, various others, with a wee bit of gender swap.
Notes: Thanks to: friends to be named later, who know garage bands in general and the Carolina music scene in particular. Title and epigraph are from "No Surrender," by Bruce Springsteen & the E Street band, which seems like a Hotspur song if there ever was one.

Title: Here's a Health to the Company
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen
Play: Richard II, 1 Henry IV
Recipients: [livejournal.com profile] faithhopetricks and [livejournal.com profile] speak_me_fair
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.

Title: To pluck bright honor from the top of the world, Ma
Author: [livejournal.com profile] roz_mcclure
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen
Rating: 15 (for swears)
Pairings: Hotspur/Kate, kind of Hotspur/Douglas
Warnings: Guns and liquor
Summary: IF Hotspur were a police commander in the 1930s, AND also everyone in the story were genderswapped, THEN he might look like Katharine Hepburn, and anachronisms and tacked-on happy endings would probably abound.
Author's note: Shakespeare condensed characters from the history, and I've condensed characters from the Shakespeare! Another few rounds of this and Hotspur will be the only character in the entire story.

It wasn't raining during the medal ceremony, for once, although the promise of it was heavy enough in the air to make Harriet's hair frizz under her blue cap. )

Characters: Hal, Hotspur, Kate Percy
Warnings: Slash, threesome. Um, sex.
Rating: NC-17, for language and sex.

'Cos, cos, cos...' 'I'm not your coz,' Poins muttered to the table. )

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. )
