ETA: Fics posted after 1/2013 are now indexed here.

I have prepared an index of Damn Near All the Histories Fic on the Web. If I have omitted anything you wrote, it isn't a value-judgment but either a lack of awareness or a brain lapse on my part. Please feel free to let me know in the comments if there's anything I forgot! Or if there is any King John or Henry VIII fic out there; I've never heard of any. (NB that King John fic exists now. YAY!) and now there is also Henry VIII fic!

Posts marked with an asterisk (*) are friends-locked. If the authors want me to take them out of the index, I will do so. Posts marked with a plus sign (+) are drabbles. With fics that take place during more than one play, or that take place during one play but have more bearing on another one, I have used my discretion, but generally cross-reference.

Great list! Thank you for this.

Thank you for this post!

Heee! Too cool!

If you don't mind branching out in Marlowe's Edward II, I've also got A collection of letters :)

Also, thanks for this! I had no idea there were so many fics.

There weren't until quite recently! Nearly all of these were written in the last year or so. :)

(I just counted: only twelve of these predate Histories Ficathon I. There are a couple of others I know of that seem to have disappeared from the web, as well.)

Having spent last week getting my LJ into presentable nick I was going to post a link here, but you've saved me the trouble!

Might be worth adding that 'Henry's Journey' is a slight xover with two of the Other Chap's plays, in case people want to avoid it on those grounds... though maybe not which ones, 'cos that would give the game away.
