Title: High D'Haran Love Poetry - Give Me a Thousand Kisses - Complete!
Author: Alsike
Fandom: Legend of the Seeker
Rating: R
Pairing: Berdine/Raina
Disclaimer: Berdine and Raina belong to Terry Goodkind, but think of this as their TV-show version incarnations. These are the girls who would hang out with our Cara and (sometimes) put up with her shit.
The eponymous poetry belongs to Catullus. Check out more here (somehow I was unable to find space for all the hilarious ones about his douchey friends and the goats in their armpits). All the translations, in their awkward glory, are mine (with the helpful assistance of Whitaker's Words).
Wordcount: ~20,000
Summary: How do Mord'Sith fall in love? No really, how? The Berdine and Raina origin story, guest starring Cara, Hally, and the ever-charming Darken Rahl.

Don't fear the Latin. Latin is cool! Berdine would be sad if you feared the Latin. :( (Also, It's completely translated in the text.) And the chapters should all be linked to the next one! So if you've been waiting, or doubting, or suspicious, it is time to Read from the Beginning!

Apologies:  Okay, I'm admitting it.  This is a series.  It would have been out a lot sooner if this week hadn't been really brutal (still brutal, but fic is a wonderful break from Old Irish), and if my roommate didn't decide to give me the talk about not getting out enough and wasting my youth.  More apologies to Catullus.  

Summary: Mord'Sith.  In the torture chamber and around generally.
