A very belated 2016 entry for the fest! (Posted to the collection.) I hope this is okay.

Title: Scandal of the Town
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook
Fandom: Original Work
Pairing/Characters: Julia Graves/Edward Iveson (OFC/OMC)
Rating: Teen
Length: 26,067 words (3 chapters)
Summary: Thanks to one indiscretion, Edward Iveson's life and reputation is in ruins, until Julia Graves comes to his rescue with a proposal of marriage. Edward can hardly turn her down, but what is it that Julia wants from him?

From this summary, although it went seriously off-piste (but the mod kindly said the fic could still count; I just wimped out on the posting until now): 138) In the Flesh- Portia Da Costa

Victorian society already believes he’s a scarlet man. Why not become one? Edward’s reputation is in tatters. With scandalous photographs of him being scrutinized by the ton and his brother running them into debt, Edward’s only hope – a respectable marriage – is dashed. Then powerful, wealthy Julia offers an indecent proposal: for one month of hedonistic servitude she’ll pay off his brother’s debts. But nothing can prepare Edward for the worst, for discovering that he enjoys his degradation and delights in the dark fantasies that Julia has awakened. In fact, he’s fast becoming addicted to a life, and a woman, who can never wholly be his…


Notes: Also written for [livejournal.com profile] runaway_tales (prompts "role reversal" and "settle") and [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo square "fall from grace). Some references to suicide and murder. With many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] persiflage_1 for the beta!
