In the writer's own words:

"Scene: A new queen waits nervously outside her husband’s chambers. It is late and the castle is quiet as the residents sleep. They have been married a short time but the marriage is not as she wants. It is not unusual given their arranged marriage, but she is determined to make things work. The Queen wishes to secure her place in the King’s heart, and his bed...."

I love historical fiction and romance, and this gorgeous script by /u/DPP_NewFrost captured a lot of what people love about the medieval period.

    Easily one of your best ones yet, it is sooo intense! I didn't even know I would like such a setting.

      That's so great to hear, I love introducing listeners to new themes they might not have tried before. I love history, and I love really delving into unique themes like this.

    I've never been big on role play/period piece audios, but you make a strong argument, Eve. I swear I could feel the cold stone walls of the room, smell the fire, and even the little pricks of the quills in the down pillows. You always go the extra mile with the little details like the fire crackle, it makes it so easy to get lost in the world you weave.

    I'm sure I'm not the first to ever mention this, but I'm now craving some more Eve Accents. I'm somewhat partial to the Irish that comes out occasionally in some of the small videos you post in Twitter, but your British is also wonderful.

      Thank you so much Darx! I recently finished another historical one where I play a female viking, so I tried a slight Scandanavian accent. I hope you like it!

    It was an enchanting experience to listen to a fairy tale, Eve's Garden-style, on a chilly evening. The sound quality was top-notch as always and the foley of heavy oaken doors and the subtle crackle of a bedchamber fireplace keeping the drafts at bay made for a most immersive audio escape. The growing passion between these royal lovers brought together by station and circumstance was palpable, and the kissy denouement was the perfect epilogue to this accounting of what happens following "Happily ever after."

    😆 those back scratches! Are we quite sure Her Majesty is a demure FSUB? Perhaps one day her inner wildcat will lead to a Royal Romp in the castle dungeon 😋

      haha I don't think Her Majesty is as mild and demure as she would have her King believe...I think he's in for some royal shenanigans :P

    "Now madam, I will part your legs like the Red Sea and proceed to mount. As I claim you as my queen, we will continue to thrust until we both scream in victory"

    Sorry, I couldn't resist XD

      haha I love it!
