Story notes for "Natural" by Resonant
Posted November 11, 2009
This is slash on Georgette Heyer's novel The Foundling, which I highly recommend. If you haven't read the novel, the main thing you need to know about the basis for the story is that Gideon's pet names are canonical.
Tradescant put the Foundling quandary very well:
One of the big problems -- the only problem, really -- I have with Gideon/Gilly is that Harriet and Gilly suit each other so beautifully, and I like her so much, that I really can't bear to see that pair undermined, no matter how equally lovely Gilly and Gideon are when they're together.
On the other hand, Harriet has a famously dirty-minded grandmother. If anyone in Regency-land might be able to handle a more modern alternative, she'd be the one.
Thanks to shalott and tradescant for beta help.
Edited to add -- because I began to worry that happy perversion might be more difficult for the ladies than it was for the gents:
A Sequel In Thirty-Two Words
"I don't think," Harriet said doubtfully, "that anyone could countenance asking a lady to do a thing like that."
"I should say not," Louisa said. "You do it, Gideon, and we'll watch."
