Nesta, Victorian Gothic AU - 1/? - M - And Way Down We Go
Spooky Challenge Prompt Fill Number 9!
I kept trying to do something Edgar Allen Poe-ish for this prompt but all I could come up with was ‘The Tell-Tale Dick’ so fuck that bird-bonker, we’re going with my all time favourite film starring Tom Hiddleston’s arse (actually that might be a lie I love High Rise too, damn), Crimson Peak. It IS the source of one of my all-time fave ships though, which make up 70% of the shit on my kindle (whoops). (ps 50 points if u can guess said ship)
Prompt: Namren, Victorian Gothic AU (never even THOUGHT of this pairing before somehow and now #InDeep)
Pairings: Nesta/Amren, Nesta/Tomas, Nesta/Cassian
To bring her sisters the prestige they once lost to the sins of their father, and to fulfil the role she was trained for, Nesta marries a man she already knows to be a monster. Yet when she arrives at Crimson Peak, she soon learns the poison may run deeper than she or any of the rumours ever could have imagined.
And all of this is rendered nothing by a woman with silver eyes; A woman who may be the foulest monster of them all.
