Title: All Dressed With Yew
Author: [livejournal.com profile] chaletian
Play: Henry V - Shakespeare
Rating: PG
Summary: After the Battle of Agincourt, the King tells his brother John of Falstaff's death. (Can be considered a continuation of Kingly Crowns of Gold, a little later in the brothers' relationship.)
Author's Note: Confession: I have only seen Kenneth Branagh's version of Henry V, and only skimmed the text, so apologies if Hal and John in fact have a giant conversation on this topic in the middle of the play! (Another note at the end.)

"I dare swear, had he been on the field, we would have heard nought but how he slew a dozen – nay, a score! – of the fiercest Frenchman with ne'er a pause for breath, impaled half a dozen more on but a single thrust of his sword, torn down at least a quartet of French standards, and rescued the both of us from an early grave! Aye, and he'd have the battle scars to prove it, to boot!"

Play: Henry V
Characters: King Henry, Scroop, Thomas Grey, Richard of Cambridge
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 1146
Warnings: Character deaths
Summary: Harry Lancaster does not suffer traitors gladly.
Notes: Drabble originally written for [livejournal.com profile] angevin2, who requested 'something in the Great Big AU, featuring the Lancasters'. Title translates to 'Thus ever for traitors'. I realised the original post was locked and decided to repost it here with the rest.

It had taken Henry Scrope a good forty-eight hours to discover what was so peculiar about Harry Lancaster's latest house party. )

Play: Henry V
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] shayheyred
Characters/Pairings: Constable of France
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
Summary: A disease in the blood, some whispered. A curse on the house of Valois. Perhaps that was what had brought the English, for, surely, the son of a man who had murdered an anointed King should have been struck down long ere this.
Notes: Your proper fic will be up shortly. We just wanted to make sure everybody got something today.

The rain, which had plagued them ever since their departure from Péronne, had finally spent itself, content to spit a few fitful drops every now and again across the camp. )

Katherine wept the way she did everything else: beautifully, and with purpose. )
