/* Look. This is a good and fun story, written as excellently as all Fahye's things, and it does well by Jack which is so important to me, but mostly it's great because there are SECRET TUNNELS (well, passages, but whatever) and I'm a sucker for those. */

Jack’s prison is not the palace or his fiancee's company. The prison is his mind. And after three months alone with his thoughts, he’d do anything to escape, even follow David Shepherd into Gath.

"Stuart, I could kiss you right now," Jack said, and did so, yanking the other man to him for a hard, heartfelt meeting of lips. "Thank you."

"No need, sir." Stu gestured at the car again, his face flushed. "Shall we?"

SADLY I'M MOAR ONBOARD FOR STU/PRINCE JACK THAN DAVID/PRINCE JACK. // YOUR OPINION IS BAD AND YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD ABOUT YOURSELF. // DAVID IS LIKE UNFLAVORED OATMEAL TO ME. HE'S VERY DIFFICULT TO CHOKE DOWN. // THAT'S NOT WHAT JACK SAID!

Summary: "The king is dead," says Samuels. "Long live the king."

A story about fealty and destiny, spies and secrets, and the things we do to hold onto power.
Reccer's Notes: I love how Jack redeems himself here, and devotes himself entirely to David, and how David devotes himself in turn to Jack.

--All this week I've been rewatching Kings and this morning I devoured this fic in one sitting. What a fantastic read! Gripping and emotional. The relationships were all done well (pleased that David/Michelle was given equal weight). I loved that lots of the OCs were women and some of my fave female characters from canon were given lots to do - LUCINDA! THOMASINA! I also loved Jack's pov - it was sometimes brutal and upsetting but there would be surprising moments of compassion and I really liked his sense of the theatrical. The plot denouement was very satisfying and the emotional climax (heh) was hot as hell.

Kings, David/Michelle, David/Jack. ""The king is dead,' says Samuels. 'Long live the king.' A story about fealty and destiny, spies and secrets, and the things we do to hold onto power." After Silas's assassination, Jack immediately steps aside in favor of David, who's then both crowned and more-or-less shotgun married to Michelle. Then they all navigate the intricacies, dangers, and conspiracies that come with David's precarious reign in Gilboa -- and pull a long con on their enemies. // 67K. Fork AU, alternating POVs. Long and thoroughly engrossing, even if you haven't seen the show. Marrying Old Testament to modern setting results in periodic omens and blood oaths and moments with a whiff of supernatural horror to them. (There are reminders that the characters are always being watched and weighed by something that's terrifying and real but has unknown, inscrutable standards.) At one point Michelle's forced to atone for someone else's mistake. I guess David persuading her to renounce her first choice is a big crack in their partnership; it's the only way the fic's resolution sits with me, tbh. (I'd think in an OT AU, adultery would still be a Top Ten Shalt Not.)

67k Canon Divergence AU!

Considering I haven't really thought about the canon in question in about 7 years this was not the easiest fic to get into, but I was still vaguely familiar with what happened and a quick Wikiread brought me up to speed.

And oh boy was it ever worth it. Fahye is fantastic as always, and I've always loved their ability to turn a phrase. Everything feels weighty and symbolical, which adds to the mood the fic and the canon is steeped in. We slowly unfurl the story after an initial in media res beginning and the romance is a very slow burn, with Michelle as the female character needing to sort of fade into the background.

If I were to have a complaint, that would be it, that due to the limited POVs some characters (mostly female) feel a bit shortchanged and the sort of OT3 relationship is established in one short scene. But the story itself makes up for that and it's been a while since I've read something this good.
