    Summary

    This fic follows the plot of Guillermo Del Toro's "Crimson Peak" but with alterations. The reader is a young, independent woman who gains the attention of a mysterious Thomas Sharpe. It basically follows the movie except for a happier ending and a lesser, but still prevalent, degree of Gothic tropes/dark tones. I am a huge fan of the movie/Tom/Guillermo and mean to only embrace and give my own romanticized take on the film!

    Summary

    Thomas and Lucille Sharpe needed a new benefactor, their last victim, Edith had not been wealthy as they needed her to be. With her disposed of, they need more income and stumble across Mrs Charlotte Hamilton, the young widow of William Hamilton and in turn heiress to the Hamilton shipping company, she is naive, ditsy and incredibly wealthy, she is everything they need to cease this marry and kill lifestyle they have had to lead, but ghosts have a bad habit of not staying dead.

    This is based on the movie Crimson Peak, so if any of the subject matter in that was uncomfortable for you, you will find this similar and I will *NOT* be descriptive of incest in this, it will only be implied, same as the movie.

    Summary

    Another version of Hades and Persephone

    Woe to men when emerges the robber bridegroom
    And steals away the earth’s bloom.
    With the maiden’s virtue lost
    The earth shall be covered in frost.
    Mortals shall freeze and famish
    When the maiden goddess does vanish.
    While the goddess is far away
    She shall not see the light of day.
    From the living she shall be unseen
    And judge the righteous and obscene.
    Without her the mortals perish
    But her kingdom will flourish.
    With her, there shall be rebirth
    And her kingdom with be dearth.
    But her husband’s wrath shall be great
    Till the return of his mate.
    The bringer of rebirth and destruction shall she be
    And shall be henceforth called Persephone.
