Author's Note: Many thanks to my wonderful artist, daarl, and my loyal beta halcyonmuse. This is my first ever Big Bang challenge and I had a blast writing for it, so I hope everyone enjoys the story! Also, I tried to be as historically/linguistically accurate as possible, so I apologize for any atrocious mistakes.
