Boston

Title: Boston
Originally posted: Here.
Length: 3,200 words.
Characters/Pairings: UK/Colonial!US
Premise: Ideological differences are about to tear England and America apart, but who cares about that? They have sex, is my point.
Time period: 1774
Smuttiness: 7/10
Funnyness: 0/10
Wrist slashiness: 5/10
Lolhistoryness: 8/10, but nothing that should leave you scratching your head and alt-tabbing for Wikipedia. Non-Americans might miss out on a line if they don't know that the Quartering Act of 1774 stated that the townships of Massachusetts were responsible for providing housing for British soldiers (although contrary to popular belief, that didn't mean British soldiers could stay in people's private homes without permission).
Violence: 0/10
Would I like it?: It's more dysfunctional, wrenching, colonial era relationships.

Read it behind the cut.Collapse )

Okay, I seriously started tearing up at the end. ;3; oh god sjfksfsd that was brilliant. ♥ ♥
Thank you, I'm glad you like it. =D They break my heart, too.
Yes. YES. Toppy UK YES.
This was fantastic, with the little Quartering Act dig, and the strangely nonexplicit yet totally hot sex, and how America is almost strong enough to break free, but not quite.
The last little bit was inspired. Truly.
Thank you. =D (As far as I'm concerned, Toppy UK = the only UK.)
This--the way it progressed was so natural and perfect. It was just layer upon layer of subtle, careful little displays of emotion building up brilliantly to the bitter end...and that ending broke my heart into tiny splintery pieces oh god. Even though, knowing my history, it was inevitable...I think that just made it more gut-wrenching. I LOVE IT. Suffice it to say--I have so much respect for your writing.

By the by. Your England is so. Daaamn. Just. Unf. ♥
Thank you, I'm really happy to hear that you enjoyed it. =D

I know, right? England's great. If domineering, repressed, manipulative motherfuckers with hidden depths of emotion they refuse to acknowledge even to themselves are what do it for you, look no further.
Haha, you always know how to end with the best lines XD

What can I say? The fic was absolutely delicious~
Hahaha, hey, the first and last lines are the most important ones to get right! XD
Holy shit.
I...really want to curl up and cry.
This is wonderful.
