Series information

"The Queen and the Soldier" is a song by Suzanne Vega (lyrics), but my favorite version is the cover by Kate Rusby and Kathryn Roberts. [livejournal.com profile] coffeeandink introduced me to it, and I love it to pieces and keep almost requesting it for Yuletide and then not. The fandom as far as I know has one other story, [livejournal.com profile] edonohana's lovely The Queen Knew She'd Seen His Face Some Place Before.
