Eyes Not His )

Title: This Deed Was Done at Otterburn
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen
Play: pre-1 Henry IV (and technically pre-Richard II as well)
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] speak_me_fair
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Hotspur, Douglas, various other assorted Douglases; implicit Hotspur/Douglas fantasy
Warnings: Liberties taken with Shakespeare, history, and meteorology
Rating: PG-13
Summary: In the aftermath of the Battle of Otterburn, two foes meet for the first time.

This Deed Was Done at Otterburn )
[identity profile] angevin2.livejournal.com
Title: These few days' wonder
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kerrypolka
Play: 2 Henry VI
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Humphrey Gloucester/Eleanor Cobham; Henry VI, Suffolk and Somerset, Margaret of Anjou
Warnings: swears
Rating: 15+
Summary: Look, you try to run a studio with Henry Junior's name on the deed and Beaufort and Pole breathing down your neck and see how far it gets you. Old Hollywood AU.

Of all the ladies, Miss Holly was the only one who'd talked to me like I was a person instead of a prop. )
[identity profile] angevin2.livejournal.com
Title: Betwixt the Wind and His Nobility
Author: [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen
Play: Henry IV, Part I
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] kerrypolka
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Kate/Hotspur, Kate/1978 Cadillac, Bolingbroke, Northumberland
Warnings: Mild swearing, assault on a clerk, gratuitous Solitaire, sneaky Chicago reference, crack AU.

Betwixt the Wind and His Nobility )
[identity profile] lareinenoire.livejournal.com
Title: The sky above us shoots to kill
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire
Play: 3 Henry VI
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] the_alchemist
Characters / Pairings: Richard the not yet III
Warnings: profanity, violence, drunkenness, ableist language, period-accurate misogyny, an excess of (canonical) severed heads, raging misanthropy
Rating: M
Summary: Father used to say the rules were different west of the Mississippi. He wasn't wrong.
Notes: Title comes from the song 'Thistle & Weeds' by Mumford & Sons. As per the prompt, this is based on Richard's soliloquy from 3 Henry VI, Act III, Scene II. It is also, however, an AU set in California c. 1875 because the author recently discovered the brilliance that is Deadwood and, if one thinks about it hard enough, it makes a shocking amount of sense.

Father used to say the rules were different west of the Mississippi. )

Title: This Earth Shall Have a Feeling
Author: [livejournal.com profile] angevin2
Play: Richard II
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Richard II, Henry Bolingbroke, occasional others
Warnings: No common triggers. Contains self-loathing, loathing of other people, mild clockpunk elements, dead children, faulty understanding of religion, period attitudes toward sexuality, and unmerited resentment of dead people.
Rating: It's pretty close to G-rated. There is like one use of the word catamites.
Summary: For the first time in generations, England has a king without magic.
Notes: The bit about Edward I attempting to exhume Arthur is real, although its results are obviously not; the references to cramp-rings and touch-pieces are also basically accurate. Clockwork gardens were also a real thing, although quite a bit later than Richard II. Finally, I am infinitely grateful to everyone who held my hand while I was writing this fic and helped me to work out reasonably consistent rules for the magic.

What had always bothered Thomas the most was the bees. )

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.

A Thousand Ships )
[identity profile] angevin2.livejournal.com
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 Bitten Mouth
Author: [livejournal.com profile] speak_me_fair
Play: Richard II
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] angevin2

The Bitten Mouth )

Title: All Soul's Day
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire
Play: Richard II (very loosely)
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] highfantastical
Characters / Pairings: Richard II, Anne of Bohemia, Robert de Vere; Richard II/Anne of Bohemia, Richard II/Robert de Vere
Warnings: Pretentiousness, horrible exam questions, academics behaving like academics, Robert de Vere's tongue
Rating: T
Summary: Richard Bordeaux sits the All Souls Fellowship Exam. Chaos ensues.
Notes: A vignette from the Crescive in his Faculty AU, as per the prompt. Set in October of 1989, at the beginning of Richard's D.Phil. All the questions come from actual exam sheets. Yes, even the Nazi one. The last two sections are meant to serve as a frame narrative for [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen's story, Reunification, in the same AU.

And then I can prove to them that I do know which fork to use at dinner and you will be forced to sleep with a fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. Can you live with that? )

Title: When Great Ones in Their Own Particular Motion
Author: [livejournal.com profile] highfantastical
Play: Richard II
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] angevin2

Warnings: No warnings of a sexual nature; beyond that, the author prefers not to warn.
Rating: PG-13.
Summary: Richard is in prison. Isabel is in France. Aumerle hits on a useful answer and it changes everything.

My son: the sinner; may his concupiscence be every night rewarded. )

OKAY YOU GUYS. It is ALMOST FICATHON TIME -- most of the fics have been received or will be received soon. The ficathon will go live on Saturday, September 3, and like we did last year, we're doing a free-for-all round!

Here's how it works:

1. Pick one (or more) of the prompts below.

2. Write a fic of any length -- from drabble to big-bang-sized epic (if you can do that in three days, I will be incredibly impressed).

3. Send it to me at strangebrooch AT gmail DOT com AND/OR lareinenoire AT gmail DOT com by MIDNIGHT EDT on SEPTEMBER 3, i.e. Friday night/Saturday morning (if you are writing for one of us, just send it to the other one, because mods like surprises too). Use the official format for headers. )

4. Profit!

These prompts are open to anyone, regardless of whether or not you originally signed up; instead of posting claims in the comments, just pick one and write. Also, IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED FOR YOUR FIC, DO NOT CLICK THE CUT.

Dear all--

We've decided to extend the fic deadline for this year's Histories Ficathon. Stories are now due on Thursday September 1. Once we've received all the submissions, we'll open up the list of unfilled prompts for Madness.

Fics will be posted on Saturday September 3 and author reveals on the 10th.

If you still don't think you'll be able to finish your submission on time, please let us know sooner rather than later, so we can arrange for a pinch-hitter.

There's just over 24 hours left to sign up for this year's Histories Ficathon! Signups will be due tomorrow (JUNE 21) at MIDNIGHT EDT -- that's the end of tomorrow, not the end of today. Assignments will go out as soon after that as [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire and I can work them out.

If you're on the fence about doing the ficathon, I highly recommend it! It's great fun, and we are only mean to the characters. :D
[identity profile] angevin2.livejournal.com
We are totally still here! Just starting a little late this year. :D


Administrative things, how to sign up, rules, &c. )

Email all of this info to me at strangebrooch AT gmail DOT com, and/or to [livejournal.com profile] lareinenoire at lareinenoire AT gmail DOT com, by 21 JUNE. Don't forget to include your lj handle if it's not clear from your email and/or I don't know who you are. The final deadline for fics is tentatively set at 29 AUGUST. (This is negotiable if it's a bad time for participants.) Once I've received everyone's assignments, I will post all unwritten prompts at [livejournal.com profile] thisengland for anyone to write fic of any length (even if you weren't originally part of the exchange) -- much like Yuletide Madness, in other words. All fics will then be posted on 1 SEPTEMBER.

ETA: Signups for Histories Ficathon IV are now closed.
