Historical Supercorp AU: The Lost Queen

This morning I listened to a podcast called What Really Happened (which is really great and you should listen to it), and this one episode was about King John II of France, who was captured by the Black Prince of Wales and spent a third of his reign as an extravagant prisoner of war. There’s a part of his story where he actually goes back to France for a while, but then returns to England at the slightest provocation to resume his POW status.

I dunno what it is about this story, but it makes me want a Supercorp AU where Lena is the Black Prince and Kara is the captured king of France and Lena is instantly smitten and proceeds to shower her prisoner with lavish meals and jubilant parades.

She makes it her singular mission to give Kara every reason to stay in England with her, up to and including setting steep ransoms that the French can’t possibly hope to raise.

But when Kara insists she can raise the 3mil crowns if she can go back to oversee the efforts to raise funds herself, Lena is all “fine then, go, see if I care.” And the instant Kara sets foot in France she realizes how much she misses England. Not just the food or the celebrations– but the nights she spent discussing politics and strategy with her captor the Black Prince, and the quiet moments they stole in the woods during the hunts Lena hosted.

When it becomes obvious the burden her ransom and release is putting on her people, Kara nopes back to England with a new solution she hopes the Black Prince will accept.

In the great hall of King Lionel III, Kara kneels before the Black Prince and explains the plight of her people. Lena listens, expression dour (royals shouldn’t pout, but the Black Prince does).

“I fail to see how breaking the treaty you insisted upon is my problem,” Lena says finally. “You would break your oath?”

“No,” Kara assures her. “My people are unable to pay the agreed ransom, and so I surrender myself unto you in good faith and honor.”

Lena doesn’t look convinced. She looks like she wants to raze a village or two, and Kara is desperate to ensure its not her villages in the Black Prince’s sights.

“And I propose a new treaty, to bring our lands together in alliance for perpetuity.”

“Oh?”

Kara can’t help the smile that curls her lips ever so slightly. “My hand, in holy matrimony, to the Prince of Wales.”

When Lena’s cheeks immediately flush a deep crimson, Kara knows she has her.

HALLOWEEN PLOTS I REALLY NEED !

  • HAUNTED HOUSE ! one of the muses gets scared while the other does their best to comfort them through the ride
  • TRICK OR TREATING ! giving out candy to all the kids and rating which one had the best costume once the front door is closed
  • CORN MAZE ! getting lost in the maze for hours ( bonus points if they just give up and end up making out or maybe even smutty times ? )
  • COSTUME PARTY ! going as matching costumes or just meeting there, two bonus points if they sneak off to have their own fun !
  • SERIAL KILLER AU ! think of the movie friday the 13th. what was supposed to be a relaxing camping trip between a group of friends suddenly turns deadly when a serial killer threatens their safety. 
  • GHOSTS ! honestly just think of ryan and shane ghost hunting , i want it !
  • PUMPKIN CARVING ! pretty self-explanatory but imagine if they got into a cute little pumpkin fight ? ? throwing the insides at each other until their entire apartment is a mess !

anonymous asked:

What's your headcanon body type for all of the sides? Like how does their body look when you think about them

I always imagine Patton to be thick. Like imagine a Dad! (Cause that’s what he’s called) and at least a couple of inches shorter than Roman and Logan but taller than Virgil

Roman is the tallest for me and his body type is the most muscular. I feel he’s the kind to wanna look like those really fit Celebs that train for a role.

Logan is a bit shorter than Roman and I imagine him being lean and muscular

And then there’s Virgil who I picture being the shortest of the Sides and in my hc he has a dancer’s body cause, you know, I hc that he’s.. a that.

[Updated 8/21/17]

ok but someone give me that cute bartender storyline though? like this guy tends bar at a restaurant or a pub or something and always sees this cute girl hanging out there, but she’s always either with friends or with some guy so he never really gets the time to talk to her BUT ONE DAY she walks into the place alone and orders so many drinks until she’s so bloody drunk, screaming about how her boyfriend cheated on her, that the bartender had to bring her home himself. she wakes up with a horrible hangover, stumbles out the room to find the bartender cooking breakfast and rolling his eyes, laughing. “first of all, you’re an idiot. second, we didn’t have sex if that’s what you’re wondering. third, breakfast will be ready soon. sit.” and fluff commences HELP PLZ

CAN I GET A BEST FRIENDS TO LOVERS PLOT ?? like not even an instant one, but like one with the gradual build up. like MUSE A comes to them after a fight with their significant. MUSE B knocks on their window after a horrible date. no one gets me like you. inside jokes no one understand. maybe even a secret handshake ?? just chemistry so strong it melts your heart. so innocent & pure. bonus points if people used to say they’d get married one day and they both laughed at the idea. but here they are. laughing about what their lives have become. how at the end of the day they’ve always had each other. and now they can’t help but wonder.

But please don’t yell and kick me out when you see me laying in your bed with your robe on while watching pay per view on the TV and eating the mini bar snacks. But wait, this works out in your favor? Now I have to actually pretend to be your wife so your crazy mother will get off your back about marriage?

They won’t admit it but they’ll love each other forever no matter what, even if they’re not always together. 

ok but a plot where muse a is the leader/part of this really dangerous and famous gang and almost everyone knows who muse a is, the horrible things they have done, how skilled they are at whatever weapon they like the most, how they have no mercy and will either kill you in matters of seconds or torture you until you’re begging for death. they’re cold, they’re calculating, rumor has it they lack a heart and soul,, but then, THEN, there’s muse b; pure, innocent, maybe shy and awkward ( or not, up to u?? ) personality is cute as fuck, a marshmallow that needs to be protected, and well, muse a really wants to protect them in the moment their eyes land on muse b, even if they don’t know them at all because ‘dude they look so fucking fragile someone is going to hurt them wtf the fuck’. and one day, after days ( or weeks ) of muse a admiring muse b from afar they decide to approach them someway somehow, and poor muse b is clueless abt who muse a really is at first. this could be so angsty and fluffy and just !!!!! i Want

OK SO what about a plot where muse a is a waitress or something and she’s working a shift one night and like this group of super hot cops come in and she has to be their waitress and she’s trying to not act weird but she can’t help it and they notice it and are teasing her about it, but muse b is doing it a lot more than the other too and like maybe the diner requires her to wear skates and maybe she like stumbles and ends up spilling like soda, water, etc. on muse b’s crotch and she’s like ‘omigod omigod omigod’ and he just thinks it’s cute and funny and so he leaves her his number on a napkin and maybe she panics and doesn’t text him because she thinks he’s intimidating AND THEN MAYBE THE NIGHT DAY SHE LIKE LOST A BET OR SOMETHING AND HER FRIENDS MAKE HER GO SKINNY DIPPING IN THE LAKE EVEN THOUGH IT’S TRESPASSING AND THEN THE POLICE COME AND HER FRIENDS DITCH HER AND OH SHIT IT’S MUSE B AND SHE LIKE COMES OUT OF THE WATER TO SEE HIM STANDING ON THE DOCK AND HE’S LIKE ‘why didn’t you text me?’
