Canst Thou Draw Out the Leviathan - Christopher Caldwell
John Wood boarded the Gracie-Ella ahead of the crew. He carried his sea chest on his shoulder. In a satchel slung low on his hip were his tools and the three things most precious to him: a lock of his grandmother’s hair, a shaving from the first cabinet he had built as a boy, and his freedom papers.

Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Memphis Minnie Sing the Stumps Down Good - LaShawn M. Wanak
Rosetta knelt to look at the stump in the corner of her client’s bedroom. It had the likeness of a ten-year-old boy, four feet tall, dressed in an oversized shirt and suspenders, and its features were flawless, from the newsboy’s cap cocked on its tight curls, to its pupil-less eyes fringed with long eyelashes. The only oddity was that stump’s hands were unformed, shapeless blobs. It was easy to believe that a sculptor had chiseled a boy out of wood and had stepped away just before finishing its hands.

Rosetta sucked in her breath through her cloth face mask. The SPC hadn’t told her that her first stump extermination would look like a child.

A Fine Italian Hand - Jo Walton
John Argentine, magician, is doctor to dead princes,

Trained, like the best, in Padua, his fine Italian hand

Kept in a silver box, it writes in delicate italics

Copying his magic texts and shaking on the sand.

author's note:
(If I say it's all true, you won't believe me. But -- well, I was reading Frank Klaasen's The Transformation of Magic, and John Argentine was discussed, and there was a summary of his career -- Padua, Princes in Tower, Prince Arthur, Provost of King's College Cambridge -- and then in the next paragraph it said he had a fine Italian hand. It's more than anyone could bear not to write a poem about a fine Italian hand!)

author's note:
If you've been following the early modern news circuit (and if you're reading this fic, odds are you do), you might have heard about the newly fashionable theory that the three parts of Henry VI were the collaborative effort of Shakespeare and Marlowe. My main issue with this theory hinges on the definition of the word 'collaboration', which we as fan authors know can mean so many different things.

De Cerinthus Fornicationis - ineptshieldmaid

A certain man, being under the influence de cerinthus fornicationus, came to have carnal knowledge of a woman; after this it is said that he is required to marry said women.

The questions here are:

First, what is the degree of the sin which they commit?
Second, is it required that they then marry one another?
author notes:
I woke up this morning and read Papianista's highly entertaining summary of the legal consequences of sex pollen, under (I assume?) modern US law.

I said unto the internet "this is beautiful but now I want to assess it from the point of view of 13th century canon law". And then there turned out to be so MANY considerations that I was writing a legit parody of Gratian's Decretum, and, well, it was amazing.

ladybusiness | Ewan McGregor's Stupid Beautiful Face: A History of Han/Luke and Star Wars Slash
The arrival of Star Wars: The Force Awakens made the Star Wars fandom explode earlier this year. The modern Star Wars fan is catered to not only by seemingly every kind of product with enough surface area to slap Kylo Ren on, but also by the width and breadth of the fanworks available to her. With decades of fanworks to sift through, the possibilities can seem infinite. But once she’s read her eyes out on all the Poe/Finn fic she can find and indulged in prequel fanvids set to Evanescence songs, she might have a question.

Where, a new Star Wars fan might well ask, is all the Han/Luke fic?

Lingua Franca - hollenius
It's not uncommon for young 18th/19th century Englishmen, fresh out of Cambridge, to go on a tour of the continent. It is pretty unusual for one of them to eventually get an epic poem out of the experience.

Of course, Lord Byron got a lot more out of his travels than poetry alone (if you know what I mean), but what his buddy John Cam Hobhouse got out of it was another matter...
I figured there was already a large body of fanfic about Byron and the Shelleys (and occasionally Polidori), so I decided to write something set a bit earlier--1809, to be precise. Byron had yet to "wake up and find himself famous", but the work that really sparked his fame--Childe Harold's Pilgrimage--was begun while he was on this particular epic road trip.

(though the attempt at historical apostrophes in place of the e in "ed" words was kind of a fail. Occasionally there was even an apostrophe in a word where the "ed" is DEFINITELY PRONOUNCED.

synecdochic | [mix] the little red songbook
o, the other day I mentioned that Steve Rogers almost certainly knows the Little Red Songbook. (You will never, ever be able to convince me that Steve, whose formation of political consciousness would have happened during the Great Depression, is not at the very least extremely pro-labor, if not an outright socialist.) Then I thought, hrm, a lot of what I know out of the Little Red Songbook is quite possibly more recent: what portion of it would Steve know?

Long story short (you should all know how I roll by now), this has led to a week of researching the shit out of things to date particular songs, then listening carefully to as many versions of them as I could find to find the version that would be closest to the version Steve would've known it as. And the next thing I knew, I had a mix.

Or to quote the author's notes:
I credit this story's genesis largely to Ann Cvetkovich's An Archive of Feeling, which is a book about what lesbians have done and still do to memorialize their traumas from and contributions to activism in the early years of AIDS. In the midst of a larger discussion about the power of rallying around ACT UP's identity, some of the lesbian members told stories about how they were having affairs with gay men back then -- and could tell nobody, for fear that their other gay-rights-involved friends would completely shun them.

It's weird to be tagging this history when its events begin only 30 years ago, but that IS ancient history when it comes to this stuff.
