YULETIDE TREASURE~

HELLO LOVELY FOLK, WELCOME TO BORGIA YEAR 2011. BRACE THYSELVES FOR FABULOUSNESS.

On that note, 'tis the day for Yuletide reveal, and first and foremost let me gloat over my gifts—I always meant to do a rec list, but then, whoops, lazy—I got two Borgia fics because the world is good to me:

Mine Eyes Dazzle (by La Reine Noire, fuck yes she's famous, she's like the historical fiction queen, I sort of wondered if this was hers? Anyway, woman is fabulous—she's also the queen of historical!AU and clearly I just want to be her forever—and her synopsis is a Measure for Measure quote and she had me from there on out. And it is 8K with footnotes and giant and fabulous and, just, YESSSSS~)

& et in hora mortis nostrae (byvega_ofthe_lyre, and DO WE EVEN NEED TO TALK ABOUT HOW PERFECTLY EMOTIONALLY RESONANT THIS IS? It's like a checklist of everything in the history that's calibrated for me to flail over years on end, WEDDING DANCES AND NEPI AND FOOTHOLDING OH MY, written in Emma's ridiculously beautiful prose. My heart can't even. Not even a bit of even-ing.)

And I wrote Shakespearean genderfrolic!

Sea Change

Viola, being Cesario, and being terribly twinny with Sebastian. Such unbelievable fun to write, you guys. I think I managed to curb my worser emotionally-incestuous leanings? Sorry: it's a headspace. (Apparently I am the only person who loves Sebastian this much? I love Sebastian so much. Second favorite, only after Olivia. On which note—there may or may not be an erm call it an easter egg that follows this? Watch this space. There is Sebastian/Olivia to be had. of the pornographic variety; HAPPY 2011 INDEED~)
