Lol...this is just a thought.

I'm a weirdo so...feel free to laugh at me. Olivia, you may have guessed, is a Scandal fanfiction. I was literally in the middle of rewatching season 2 (my favorite), and I got the idea of setting the story during the European Middle Ages while watching Mellie yell at Fitz about his drinking.

I guess I really liked the idea that a group of unlikely conspirators made a devil's bargain to put a pretender on a throne, so to speak. It's downright Shakespearean. *shrug* I just felt it would fit.

The Gladiators

Born Lady Nawal al-Jazuli, Olivia is the daughter of a wealthy Moorish family based in Spain. However, she converted to Christianity in her youth and moves to England at the suggestion of her tutor Cyrus, an old friend of her family.

Originally "Ibrahim", Sir Harrison is a fellow Moor from Spain. He moved with Olivia and is now her adviser, managing her financial and household affairs.

The Outsiders
