Title: Boston
Originally posted: Here.
Length: 3,200 words.
Characters/Pairings: UK/Colonial!US
Premise: Ideological differences are about to tear England and America apart, but who cares about that? They have sex, is my point.
Time period: 1774
Smuttiness: 7/10
Funnyness: 0/10
Wrist slashiness: 5/10
Lolhistoryness: 8/10, but nothing that should leave you scratching your head and alt-tabbing for Wikipedia. Non-Americans might miss out on a line if they don't know that the Quartering Act of 1774 stated that the townships of Massachusetts were responsible for providing housing for British soldiers (although contrary to popular belief, that didn't mean British soldiers could stay in people's private homes without permission).
Violence: 0/10
Would I like it?: It's more dysfunctional, wrenching, colonial era relationships.
