    Summary

    “Eurydice, dying now a second time, uttered no complaint against her husband. What was there to complain to of, but that she had been loved?"
    — Ovid, Metamorphoses

    Portrait of Emmanuel Duarte Luna, Later 4th Count of Alaior (circa. 1815) sits in the Sa Bassa Blanca Museum, easily, and often, overlooked. History will never know about the lingering looks, or stolen moments. Nor does it need to.

    Love transforms us, no matter how briefly we hold it in trembling hands, and that will never be a tragedy - no matter what the poets say.

    Summary

    Alternate Universe/Canon Divergence: Kate and Anthony sacrifice their love for their duties. There is no bangle rescue, No bee in chapel and Anthony doesn't "pull a Ross". The wedding of our nightmares actually goes through.

    What happens next? Spoiler Alert: They hook up and have an affair. Trigger warning: Infidelity/Adultery. Lots of angst, guilt and pining with eventual happy ending. No one is evil, its just a messy complicated situation for my lovely self sabotaging idiots.

    I am obsessed with Kanthony. I hear Kanthony themes in many songs - hence the playlist. Not a writer by any means. Still trying to figure out AO3 tips and tricks. I will love your kudos and comments. Complete Playlist in End Notes

    Summary

    As the chase for the Lady Whistledown enters its third round, Penelope Featherington feels scorned by her closest confidants: Eloise for their argument and general disregard for her feelings, Colin for publicly declaring her unworthy of any romantic endeavors. And so with the ton’s attentions directed towards her in what seems to be the most negative way so far, Penelope decides to only live for herself from here on out. Her business as Lady Whistledown flourishes but with friends, foes and betrayal on the horizon Penelope must learn who to trust and what battles to fight.

    Or Penelope gets pursued by a mysterious Duke and Colin wants to kick someone.

    Summary

    Follows on from the events of S2 but was written prior to the S3 synopsis being dropped.

    When Penelope Featherington decides to take it upon herself to tell the Queen of England she is Lady Whistledown, she promises to make this London Season the most entertaining yet. But, as Lady Danbury explains when she offers to help, the Queen is a romantic at heart, so tidbits of petty gossip won’t suffice for long. If Penelope can’t keep the Queen interested, well, that will be the end of both Penelope and Lady Whistledown. So now she needs to find a story of romance in a ton filled to the brim with rakes and social climbers, quite the challenge indeed. Edwina Sharma, who somehow has Penelope all figured out, keeps suggesting that she ‘look closer to home’. A riddle Penelope might be able to decipher if Colin Bridgerton wasn’t being so damn distracting. Oh, and on top of all this, she has to somehow mend her friendship with Eloise, avoid Lord Fife’s wandering hands, and keep her mother focused on finding Prudence a husband so she can stay firmly planted on the wall.

    Are you not entertained, Your Majesty?

    Summary

    What if Kate never heard Anthony's speech at Lady Danbury's Conservatory Ball?

    Anthony Bridgerton is determined to find himself a wife, having rejected the current season's debutants as anything but suitable, his hope that Her Majesty, Queen Charlotte will choose an Incomparable of the season - a Diamond - and save him the trouble of choosing. For the last thing he wants is a love match.
    Only, he cant stop thinking about a certain lovely, and sharp witted young lady, whose name he does not even know...

    Kate Sharma is interested in just one thing: Help her sister find a nobleman who'll love her and provide for her the life that she deserves. And if she, Kate, gains a reputation as a thorny spinster in the process, well then, it's not as if she ever entertained notions of marrying herself. All of her hopes and dreams were for Edwina alone. And then a certain gentleman rode into her life, most unwelcome, and for just a single moment, or many, perhaps, she wondered what it might be like to find her own true love.

    Edwina Sharma is resolved: She can see that there is something between her sister and the handsome, charming Viscount. And she will not allow either of them to ignore it.

    Summary

    Penelope Featherington, true to her namesake is a weaver.

    The weaver of London's most intricate web of information.
    While she only uses her power to write a gossip column.

    Meanwhile, Colin Bridgerton, exiled to his Bachelor Lodgings by his own family, comes to terms with his burgeoning feelings for his friend. If only she would understand how much she actually meant to him.

    Witness this dark retelling of Penelope and Colin's story as Lady Whistledown sings her swan song. Her final days as London's most notorious gossip monger.

    Summary

    Who is Miss Sophia Shu-Mei Beckett?

    It is the season of 1812 and at the Bridgerton masquerade ball a mysterious woman in silver enchants the ton, then disappears as quickly as moonlight flees from dawn.

    Sophia Shu-Mei Beckett dons a silver dress and attends a ball to support a friend but finds herself conversing with a mysterious gentleman with the soul of an artist.

    Benedict Bridgerton is left haunted by a Lady whose smile enraptured him far more than her silver skirt.

    In fairytales the two would reunite and live happily ever after. But Sophia Beckett knows that illegitimate children of noblemen and maids do not get fairytale endings, and so the lovers are left only with the memory of a moonlit kiss on their lips.

    *~*~*~*~*

    It is 1815, not even a year since Simon Hasting’s death in his country study, when Daphne Hastings finds a bundle of papers revolving around one Miss Sophia Beckett.

    Sophie knows not to dwell in the past, but as she returns to London the currents of past and present, love and loss draw Sophie and Benedict closer and closer together—no matter the risk, no matter the cost.

    Summary

    What if Penelope refused Colin’s proposal after the carriage incident? What if Penelope stood firm in her refusal and Colin had to work a little bit harder for that “yes”? What if Colin asked basically everybody in his family for advice and applied it terribly?

    This is how I think that could play out.

    Summary

    A Polin Fame!AU 'cause I've been missing one of those.

    Completely humiliated, in tears and heartbroken after a fight with her best friend, Penelope Featherington sees her - all but - perfect life completely change when she -quite literally- runs into Colin Bridgerton, a famous, sarcastic, handsome and well-connected writer who is willing to to help her make her wildest and most distant dreams come true. He offers her the chance to become the great woman she always wanted to be and finally reveal to the world who's behind Europe's most famous pseudonym: Lady Whistledown.

    But what happens when Penelope takes her job as an anonymous gossip columnist too seriously and ends up revealing a much darker secret than she could have imagined? Now she is involved with very powerful people who have already made many disappear for much smaller inconveniences than the one she caused. When flowers and gifts accompanied by threatening notes begin to arrive at her house, she knows she has a big problem and she may not be able to solve it.

    Would Pen be capable to face danger alone? Will she and Colin manage to keep their relationship strictly professional, or will new feelings arise?
