A herd of teal deer
anghraine:


The bastard son and daughter of a Valencian cardinal turned Pope, the man known as Il Valentino and his eldest sister emerged out of obscurity to become two of the most prominent figures of their day, reviled in their native Spain, feared throughout Italy, immortalized by Machiavelli, and so devoted to one another that they would be suspected of jealous murders and incest among many other crimes.

Genderbent Borgias because it makes me happy :D

Laura Mennell as Cesarina Borgia, the most beautiful and notorious woman in Italy, eldest child of Pope Alexander and Vannozza dei Cattanei. Her name all but synonymous with evil, she is remembered as both femme fatale and virago, seductress and poisoner, black widow and Lady Macbeth. Yet she was popular in her own lands, where she proved herself a just and highly competent administrator, and was admired for her courage and tactical brilliance by the French and Italian armies.
Toby Regby as Lucretius Borgia, only son of Alexander and Vannozza. Initially intended to follow his father in the Church, he ultimately became duke in three different countries and was groomed for aristocratic and military life, at which he excelled. Refined, gracious, and shrewd, he became ruthless and suspicious as his career progressed, outmaneuvering enemies and distancing himself from his French allies with equal skill, preferring to depend upon his and Cesarina’s resources, skills, and power.

title: First Impressions (Chapter One)

stuff that happens: When Henry Bennet, only son and heir to an eccentric country squire, crosses paths with Catherine Darcy of Pemberley, she publicly insults him and runs interference in his sister’s romance.
