By request (and based on the idea) of anderswasright. This is, simply put, an AU for Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera that responds to the question, “What if Renato and Amelia had managed to avoid the conspirators and had made it home safely without the Big Unveiling?”
I really hope you all enjoy this! (And sorry if this seems too long or incoherent or anything. This is my first AU.)

A changing web of relationships over the years.
Renato/Riccardo, and how they finally came together, in flashback. Very well written -- like missing scenes/flashbacks of the opera itself.

Few acquaintances end with a regicide; theirs did.

Continuing the series of "giving baritones a closure". This time it's Renato's turn. The setting is upgraded to early 20th century as it was in the 2012 Met staging because those costumes? Hella sexy. (Those singers? Also hella sexy.)
The immediate aftermath of the fateful ball and how Renato and Amelia deal with it. Renato's POV.
