The Pitfalls of Service by carriebess (PG-13/R)

Fandom Category: The Borgias (Showtime)
Pairing: Lucrezia Borgia/Cesare Borgia
Fic Title: The Pitfalls of Service
Author: carriebess
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9251359/1/The-Pitfalls-of-Service
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/R. Spoilers for season 3, incest, canon-typical violence: implied domestic abuse of minor characters, implied murder, political shenanigans.
Genre: Introspection, AU, friendship, intrigue, drama, outside-pov.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a strange little story (and I mean that in the absolute BEST of ways) in that it gives Lucrezia a confidant in the same odd type of way that Cesare has in Micheletto. Betta is amazing and her observations and actions make the events in season 3 that much more interesting and awesome. This is a fantastic ~behind the scenes~ look at the amazing batshittery that is The Borgias, and I basically want to scream "GIVE ME MORE OF THIS FOREVER, OMG, YES." at it until it updates again. Also, the unholy alliance that is Betta and Micheletto and their desire to protect their respective idiots masters MAKES MY LIFE BETTER. FYI: IT'S FINISHED OMG, GO READ IT NO REALLY GO OH MY GOD. *stuff fist in mouth and sobs*
