Title: Destiny's Savage Heart
Author: danceswithgary (danceswithgary@yahoo.com)
Pairing: Lex/other, Clark/Lex
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Non-consensual, character death (not principals), underage
Spoilers: None
Word Count: 21494
Archive: Fine, just let me know
Summary: The sky. The sea. Their destiny.

Written for the 2007 SV Harlequin Challenge (Cover#2) First Place
Notes: This story is very loosely based on the legends surrounding the colonization of Roanoke Island, Virginia in the late 1600's and my interpretation of Native American culture of the period. The language I chose to use for the Croatan and Hatteras is Virginian Algonquin, with variations that could be expected in a local dialect or when trading with Ojibwe or Abenaki tribes.

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] cinderella81 and [livejournal.com profile] hoperoy for providing a much-needed sanity check and excellent feedback on the storyline and my love to my husband , the beta that would not let me get away with the first ending I wrote. This version has had several typographical errors corrected since the original posting to [livejournal.com profile] harlequin_sv thanks to a much appreciated after-the-fact beta by [livejournal.com profile] jakrar.

Notes: I enjoyed researching the Regency period, its history, its clothing and its use of the English language. I felt very fortunate in finding the very real Saffron Walden with all of its history, unique crops and a castle! The time frames for some inventions as well as military and political history has sometimes been adjusted to better fit the events of the story, but usually by just a few months or years. There is a glossary at the end.

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] ladydey and [livejournal.com profile] magdelena1969 for looking at the storyline and keeping me going and my husband who loves to look at maps. He was quite happy to research locations for me on his laptop as I typed on mine. He is also my truest beta, always demanding my best effort. This version has had several typographical errors corrected since the original posting to [livejournal.com profile] harlequin_sv thanks to a much appreciated after-the-fact beta by [livejournal.com profile] jakrar.
