So, what I wrote was Sovereign Isle Is She, which is a character study/worldbuilding thing for about the first third of the movie Dangerous Beauty, long one of my favourite movies.

My recipient gets a lot of credit for writing a prompt that was so easy to work with. (lots of history, an appearance by Beatrice, and a focus on Veronica, check. I did not quite get the poetry in like I'd hoped, alas.)

So, thank you [personal profile] cinco for giving me something so fun to play with, and I'm so glad you liked the result!

And for anyone reading this from Yuletide: most of my journal is locked, but I add people more or less for the asking. Most of my creative output right now goes into Alternity, an alternate universe Harry Potter journal based thing currently in its fifth year of seven. There's more info in my intro post on my journal, which also includes links to me history-geeking several other things, if that's your kind of thing.

Alternity's taught me a lot about small things building up into larger ones, the way history does, but where you don't know which things are important until later. I think some of that definitely shows through in this story.
