Remember how I’ve been making noises for, like, the past year about the medieval thing?

Sex, angst, and history, in roughly that order. With bonus anachronistic corsets (fuck you, history).

Mad props to my betas: hiddenlacuna, bachin221b, mydwynter, aria, archiaart, traumachu. Lacuna and Deux, truly deserve the credit for this story, since they both grabbed me at certain key points and shook me till I agreed not to delete it. This story exists thanks to them, and I hope they don’t have cause to regret it. <3
