Title: Imagined Corners
Fandoms: Lymond Chronicles / The Perilous Gard crossover
Genre: WWII-era futurefic, drama, abandoned one-shot
Summary: "...after a while nobody would believe it was ever anything more than a tale." A futurefic one-shot, tying together two families of Elizabethan origin.

Notes: Both Dorothy Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles and Elizabeth Marie Pope's The Perilous Gard feature awesome, strong Elizabethan women named Kate. This sprung from my sister's thought: "What if their descendants met during World War II?" Unfortunately, it was abandoned before Kate Somerville's descendant (Katie) and Kate Sutton's descendant (Rinny) could start delving into their families' pasts. I'm sorry!

I’m sure if there are any Crawford secrets, they’re much better hidden than the harem girl. )

It is always remarkable when someone sees your soul to a better degree than you see it yourself. You could count the people who see your soul on one hand. Others might know you but they would forget; their knowledge of you was like a weak and undisciplined thing. But that wasn’t so with him. He didn’t forget. It stuck in his mind. He had seen a kindred soul. He had seen it long ago. She only saw it now. But she was stricken with it. Suddenly she had identified him. There was the man she loved. As a result, she proceeded dementedly to behave as if the opposite were true.
