I wrote this for the writing: fiction portion of a historical arts and sciences competition some years ago. I wasn't sure at the time what that actually meant. How do you write fiction for a historical arts and sciences competition? As it turned out, most people decided it meant writing poetry about the past. Because I'm more than a little insane, I took a different approach.

My goal was to produce a piece of fiction in the style of a piece of Renaissance drama. Because I was only allowed to enter ten pages of writing, that's all I did. But those ten pages, I think, are pretty damn good.  The judges must have thought so too, because the piece won.

For your entertainment I present to you:
