    Summary

    In November, 1777 Washington sent Hamilton to Albany to tell General Gates, having won the Battle of Saratoga and reducing the British threat to New York, to send a large number of his troops to him, near Philadelphia. Hamilton rode at a breakneak pace and accomplished all Washington wanted and more, but it came at the cost of his health. While most historians attribute his illness to a rheumatic fever, only a few know the true story, revealed here, on Halloween, for the first time.

    Summary

    Multi-chapter modern AU, or, more properly, a retelling, of Shakespeare's play, Richard II, set in the high-stakes tech industry. Characters and interpretation are based specifically on the 2013-14 RSC production, supplemented where appropriate and necessary eventually with characters, events and so forth from historical Richard II's life. Some chapters have very explicit sex, most do not. Look at the Notes at the start of each chapter to find out what's in store for that chapter.
