Of all the ladies, Miss Holly was the only one who'd talked to me like I was a person instead of a prop. )

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.

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. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] rosamund and [livejournal.com profile] angevin2 for beta-reading!

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. )

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... )
