    Summary

    December 2011. Michael Bublé's Christmas album has just hit shelves, holiday parties are in full swing, and it's time for Don Pedro's annual office-wide Secret Santa gift exchange.

    Hero wouldn't have needed Claudio's preference list—she's been mentally selecting gifts for him for the past year. But no. Her luck has yet to materialize.
    Beatrice says, "I hope whoever draws Don John for Secret Santa gifts him one hundred hours of therapy. Or some good street drugs—whatever kind make you really happy."
    "He has a lot of anger at baseline," agrees Margaret.
    Hero sighs.

    Summary

    Hero admires her cousin's bravery and strength. Beatrice thinks her little cousin has strength all on her own, but Hero doesn't see it. A tumultuous affair in which Hero finds herself a lady in love, a fallen woman, and eventually dead (to her fiance) causes her to reevaluate the attributes it takes to be a real hero, and if the person a hero saves can be herself.

     

    Possible romance elements to come, but for now this is just an exploration of Hero and how I think a soft teenage girl might feel when suddenly thrust into turmoil for the first time in her life.

    Summary

    **TITLE CHANGE ALERT! PREVIOUSLY 'KEEP ME AS YOUR FINISH LINE'**

    He watches Leonato do quick mental calculations, already knowing the final sum. The governor might prefer Claudio as a man, might want to indulge his beloved daughter’s infatuation, but at the end of the day a prince is a prince, even a bastard one, and a count is just a count.

    Claudio intends to marry Hero. Don John gets to her first.

    Summary

    Messina is set to see its biggest wedding yet this summer — if the best man and maid-of-honour could stop bickering long enough to get it off the ground.

    An AU in which Benedick and Beatrice are too wise to be fooled by Don Pedro’s schemes, but too foolish not to fall in love anyway. Tasked with planning Hero and Claudio’s second wedding, they find that time has not yet healed the years and love lost between them. With any luck, they might even get some of it back.

    Summary

    Title - "Dark Times" by Ben Platt

    Hero has always been happy to fly under the radar, to not get too much attention, to be unproblematic at best and invisible at worst. With a boyfriend in Claudio, she suddenly exists in the spotlight at WSHS, but when tragedy--a blessing in disguise--strikes, maybe, just maybe, she'll be able to start keeping her head up the way she was always taught to.

    Summary

    Imogen and Leo have been expecting company for much longer than the week or so they're going to get it. Imogen wants everything to be perfect, Hero's too excited to do anything else, and Leo's spending too much time on his ledgers for anyone to care when Beatrice decides to wait outside for a skirmish. Not that she missed this, or anything. Ben certainly hasn't.

    Act I, Scene 1, from a range of angles in the big old farmhouse.

    Summary

    Beatrice had never possessed much in the way of advantageous hopes for marriage. Truly, she had never possessed much in the way of hopes for marriage of any sort, certain of the fact – or perhaps frightened of the possibility – that she would be ill-suited to the whole affair.

    Summary

    Ben and Beatrice try to push each other everywhere except off Leo's roof at the worst homecoming-turned-engagement party of all time. It could be that they're older, or lonelier, or there's just been enough time since they last rejected each other, but it almost feels like they're getting along again. Or something.

    (Act II, Scene 3 as a dialogue more than a monologue)
