    Summary

    Hero admires her cousin's bravery and strength. Beatrice thinks her little cousin has strength all on her own, but Hero doesn't see it. A tumultuous affair in which Hero finds herself a lady in love, a fallen woman, and eventually dead (to her fiance) causes her to reevaluate the attributes it takes to be a real hero, and if the person a hero saves can be herself.

     

    Possible romance elements to come, but for now this is just an exploration of Hero and how I think a soft teenage girl might feel when suddenly thrust into turmoil for the first time in her life.

    Summary

    John makes it several strides before he lurches to a halt, ripping open his sleeve with a hiss, his wrist burning. Where before there had been plain skin, he now stares at the delicate letters inscribed over his pulse.

    Summary

    Title - "Dark Times" by Ben Platt

    Hero has always been happy to fly under the radar, to not get too much attention, to be unproblematic at best and invisible at worst. With a boyfriend in Claudio, she suddenly exists in the spotlight at WSHS, but when tragedy--a blessing in disguise--strikes, maybe, just maybe, she'll be able to start keeping her head up the way she was always taught to.

    Summary

    Done to death by slanderous tongues,
    Was the Hero that here lies:
    Death in guerdon of her wrongs,
    Gives her fame which never dies:
    So the life that died with shame,
    Lives in death with glorious fame.

    Summary

    "Why have you come, mortal?"

    She pushes back her hood, revealing rose cheeks and doe eyes and a pink-lipped smile that stalls his breath. He knows this beauty and she is no mortal.

    "My Lord, I beg you grant me shelter."

    He leans forward, gripping the stone arms of his throne. "What do you seek shelter from?"

    "The Sun, my Lord."

    Summary

    At Messina lay the Governor at Christmas-tide
    With many a lovely lord and gallant knight beside
    And of the table long did this rich brotherhood
    High revel hold aright, and mirthful was their mood.

    Summary

    They pull him out of Aragon's dungeons in the depths of winter, some four or five months after his imprisonment. The time has not left him weaker – for in truth, there are few ways to properly weaken him now. Instead, by the time Don Pedro comes for his bastard brother, Don John, it is the former who has aged.

    That the latter is incapable of aging has little to do with the stark difference in their appearance.

    Summary

    No one can really agree on how Eurydice died, but everyone says it was painful. Some say she went with an empty belly, curling in on herself until the ground rose up and swallowed her whole. Others say that a snake wove its way around her ankles and, at the opportune moment, bit.

    What everyone can agree on is this: Eurydice, despite the best efforts of her god-blessed lover, died, and she did not get to come back.

    (What does this mean for Hero?)

    Summary

    Maybe it's cliché of her, in the days after that long summer, but Hero feels an itch beneath her skin, one that cannot be soothed by her father's vineyard.

    So she runs away.
