Yuletide! is the only subject

So Yuletide authors have been revealed and I can say that I wrote this fic:

Geoffrey Chaucer, fic writer (or Why One Should Not Know Where Poets Live) (1233 words) by major_general
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: 14th Century CE RPF
Rating: Not Rated
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings, No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Geoffrey Chaucer, Giovanni Boccaccio
Summary:

In which Chaucer goes to Italy, drinks, and reads Italian poetry



I did a lot of research for this because I knew nothing about Boccaccio and only vague things about Chaucer's works that were not The Canterbury Tales. I'm proud of it and glad I stretched myself to write this as a poem. I went with rime royal because it is Troilus and Creseyde's form.
