    Summary

    Another take on history and Tombland, because Kett's Rebellion deserved better than the hand history dealt to them!

    In a hellish backdrop where people are starving, angry and desperate, Robert Kett leads his people into an uprising against the enclosure commissions, wanting only to create better lives for the people of Norfolk. If he can only show the Protector they mean peace, they can succeed.

    To that end, he hopes to persuade a lawyer named Matthew Shardlake to help try their imprisoned gentlemen and avoid a rush of vengeance. Matthew knows the world of court better than Robert does, however, and though he would like to see them succeed, he can only see disaster looming ahead. Despite all that, Robert and Matthew just cannot ignore that strange feeling drawing them closer and closer together.

    Can Matthew save the ones he loves before it is too late?

    Read the tags. Don't like it, don't read it. First part of the story will follow events of Tombland with diversions, then history is going to take some detours.

    Content note: This story is set in the present, and I'm using the Autumn Term timeline for the Marlows, so while there is no Character Death, as such, some Characters are Dead.

And (in the tradition of life, the universe and possibly everything) find that it exposes a few of their own feelings along the way.
