    Summary

    When Louis wins the war, he invites Emperor Leopold to Versailles to negotiate the peace treaty. This surprises a great many people, including William of Orange. Set in the beginning of Season 3, but very quickly veers off into pure fiction. Thanks to PepperSpicedLatte for the idea/prompt! Title taken from Ordinary Love by U2.

    Summary

    As her old enemy lay dying, Queen Louise XIV should be rejoicing. But instead...she is doing the exact opposite. She's wanted her gone before they even met, and now that it may be so...she can't bear the thought of letting her leave. At least, not without saying goodbye.

    Summary

    In Season 3, Sophie says she's been to Holland and told William of Orange all about Versailles. This is my version of her story. Sophie flees to Holland after the death of Thomas. William of Orange is predictably interested in the happenings of his enemy's court- or so it seems at first. Eventually, Sophie begins to realize that William is more than a little fixated on King Louis, interested even in details that have little military significance. Could there be something more going on? Title from Walk On by U2.

    Summary

    My ever-observant girlfriend pointed out to me that Louis starts wearing an orange ribbon an awful lot after his meeting with William in Season 2. This is my take on how he got it.

    Summary

    Unbeknownst to their ministers, their negotiations at the convent in S2 E7 aren't the first time William and Louis have met. In fact, they have salacious history, dating back to a diplomatic Dutch envoy to France when they were both teenagers (ignore the blatant historical inaccuracy here). Now they prepare to meet once again, this time on the field of battle. But putting the past behind them proves to be harder than either of them expected.

    Summary

    Being forced to be around your enemy is hard. Being forced to share a cabin with said enemy on a month-long boat trip is...impossible, at least without there being at least one murder or blackened eye. But maybe, there’s a possibility that it doesn’t have to be so bad...if you figure out how to utilize your enemy properly.

    Summary

    The color blue has always held a special place in William of Orange’s heart for as long as he could remember...interestingly enough it’s also the favorite color of his greatest enemy and greatest object of his thoughts, King Louis XIV of France.

    Four times where William of Orange fell in love with blue, and one time he didn’t.

    Summary

    After his Queen “passes away”, Louis must remarry again for an alliance. Unfortunately, the best political candidate is the absolute worst personally. He wouldn’t marry him if he were the last man on earth...but a King’s life is a matter of state, and he must do what he must for his people...even if it makes him deeply unhappy.

    William of Orange, Stadtholder of the Netherlands, Prince of Orange and a favorite to become the next King of England finds himself being prepared to marry his old enemy...a proposition he is not looking forward to in the least.
    He’d rather have the sweet and witty English princess Mary than the arrogant and manipulative bastard that is Louis of bloody fucking France...but if he can stop this war and grant his people peace, then that is what matters even if he must grit his teeth and bear it.
    When the French lily and the Dutch orange blossom water each other with blood and tears, they may find themselves twined together in the process in a knot that neither of them can untangle. That is, if they even still want to.

    Summary

    " ‘You are sulking again, William. It is most unbecoming.’
    ‘I am not.’
    ‘You are. Shall I fetch you a looking glass? You can see for yourself-’
    ‘Forget that,’ William said, his tone suddenly sharp again. "

    1672. The Palace of Versailles. Louis and William are negotiating. Or attempting to, at least. Things would be far more successful if William could control his emotions. Or perhaps they should both just admit that, sometimes, actions speak louder than words. Especially if that action is kissing?

    Summary

    "Deep down, Louis knew he would not be satisfied until William, and William alone was dead.
    But William was still very much alive. Alive and, it seemed, sat in Louis’s personal tent, drinking from his personal wine supply.
    [...] ‘You can’t keep doing this,’ William said eventually, ‘lying, especially not to yourself...'"

    In the aftermath of battle, Louis XIV of France finds his greatest enemy, William of Orange, waiting for him. Armed with wine instead of weapons, William has very little interest in fighting. He wants to talk. And, for once, Louis isn't going to argue. To fill a tumblr prompt that got a little out of hand....5000 words out of hand.
