Title: Expectations
Author: TMOH
Pairing & Fandoms: Gattaca - Irene Cassini/Romeo and Juliet - Benvolio
Rating: G
Spoilers: none
Warnings: AU, het, arranged marriage

 She would rather have stayed in Perinaldo, but it wasn’t as though she could have had any say in the matter.  Lord Montague had a nephew in need of a wife, and Lord Cassini had a daughter well past marriageable age.  Even if it wasn’t fate, it was certainly expedient, and Irene believed in both.

 So she said her good-byes to her mother and her few friends and, never once looking back, let herself be trundled off to Verona to marry a man whose face she had yet to see.

 After all, what else was a nobleman’s daughter good for?

Thanks! :D

I'm gonna do some art of this one at some point. Because, really, it's Renaissance-era!Irene, and that's Just Awesome. (...I really, really like time-displacing fictional characters, and I don't know why. I'm also very fond of both Roaring20s! and Western!Carcer, because those work. XD)
