Story: January, 1540
'Verse: Feredar
Colors: Alice Blue #1. we're all mad here, Patriarch Purple #6. five families, Aqua #7. Vessel
Supplies and Materials: eraser (Tudors AU), brush (advocate), watercolors, oils, modeling clay, charcoal, pastels (my current gen + romance card O3 "market"), glitter ("Sometimes you just have to try, even though you know it won't work." – Junot Diaz)
Word Count: 879
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Tana, Kellom
Warnings: Tana, arranged/forced marriage.
Notes: Constructive criticism welcome, as always. Because I clearly needed another AU. This one exists because Helena Bonham Carter played Anne Boleyn once. For the purposes of this AU, Feredar is one of the many small German states that existed at this time. The royal family of the City of Glass reigns in the Ottoman Empire, and I've rearranged a few royal marriages to suit the story. Unless I need to squeeze in another of my fictional nations as a direct counterpart (instead of an addition to the map, like Feredar), all other real-world monarchs and political figures will remain the same. Tana is approximately twenty-three here, making Kellom thirty-one. Andrell would be sixteen, and Mera nineteen.
