Genre: romance, oneshot, hurt/comfort
Why This Must Be Read: This takes place in a distant future where Cesare recently murdered Alfonso, his sister beloved husband, assumedly out of jealousy. A more mature Lucrezia has closeted herself in her rooms and Cesare forces his way in, desperate to gain her forgiveness, and the unfolding scene results in a very vivid portrait of their relationship. The way Lucrezia is able to punish Cesare with her words alone shows the power she has on her brother, and the fact her brother doesn't even try to fight it, just taking all she has to offer, shows the true extent of his vulnerability where she is concerned. And despite the overall darkness of their relationship, there's also a lightness, when forgiveness comes, because in the end Lucrezia and Cesare don't exist without each other. Magical storytelling for a beautifully thought-out story, and i don't know what else i can add. It was one entirely perfect fic.
