Story: By The Naked Sword
Author: the_seventh_l
Rating: Teen
Word Count: 295
Author's Summary: Ask not what your Governor can do for you, but whether he's lived long enough to do anything.
Characters/Pairings: Governor of Varos
Warnings: Refs to death.

Recced because: I have a love for fic that looks at minor characters and fleshes them out, and this piece is a brief but brilliant and chilling exploration of the Governor of Varos (from Vengeance on Varos), sitting day after day on his “poisoned throne” as the author puts it, and why he does it. It’s excellent.
