We'll Burn That Barn When We Come to It by lost_spook
11th Century CE RPF, AU, William/Harold. "Self-made French tycoon Bill Norman" is planning to build his hypermarket on Harold Godwinson's quaint organic farm near Hastings in an Area of Outstanding National Beauty. However, as the Bayeux Blogger hints, there may be more to this situation than meets the eye (cough). // 3.5K. Norman Invasion, modern AU, told as emails, texts, tweets, and local blogger posts. Also sheep, bees, bodyguards, bulldozers, and protestors. FUN.

I really enjoy this period of history, and this Richard I and Phillip interaction with a some soulmates AU weaved through it is really well done.

"Akratophoros" by Sineala
"What does it take to cross the Rubicon?"

In which Methos is actually Dionysos/Bacchus and visits Caesar to give him aid. The connection to Methos is mostly tenuous enough that this can be read as straight Dionysos/Caesar. The historical detailing is amazing. Amazing.

All The Pleasures Prove - Anonymous - 16th Century CE RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Kit pours some wine into a new cup; the man sits down. His fingers are also stained with ink.

“Master Shakespeare, I have a grievance against you.”

The man smiles. “I thought you might.”

I loved this. Will and Kit from first meeting and it's nice and plot-y with also great character moments and a good ending.

Yip et Non by longwhitecoats
12th Century RPF, Peter Abelard, Bernard of Clairveaux, Heloise. In which grand, overarching medieval philosophical and religious debates are reduced to fluffy Pomeranians fighting over a shiny rubber ball and humping on the couch. // This is both apt and brilliant. And the punny title! THIS IS WHY I LOVE FANDOM. asldkfjoieroiu11!!! eta: Just reading this one again. Still amazing.

And I'll No Longer Be A Capulet - Anonymous - 16th & 17th Century CE RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Just, gorgeously written take on Marlowe uh, post-death, but that's not as odd as it sounds. So many beautiful lines and it has a great rhythm to it too.

Il'uomo d'oro - La Reine Noire
5 POVs on Cesare Borgia, including Leonardo and Machiavelli. Does a wonderful job of capturing the feel of the period.
