Robin Hood (BBC)

Know Your Enemy by Unsentimental Fool

'He hadn't been sure that her absolute confidence was entirely flattering. He was after all a man, and a formidable one. Would it hurt her to tremble a little?' Enjoyable identity porn that mirrors the show's playfulness in a world where Robin Hood aired after the watershed (if only)

The Wolf's Head by Corrielle

'"Well met, Sir Guy," she said. "I would say that you are welcome in my house, but I would not have my first words to you be a lie."' A thought-provoking AU novella in which a small divergence, Robin's mother being alive, spirals out to change everything. The repercussions for Robin, and for Guy, are unexpected, but always remain believably within character. I'd love to see a sequel continue this universe
