Exit, Pursued by a Bear by poestheblackcat Q and Tanner are rabid Shakespeare nerds. Their reactions when the remains of Richard III are found under a car park in 2013 make their colleagues think that they might have gone a little bit mad. Bright Star 'verse but definitely may be read on its own. Q and Tanner are bros. Silly fic with plentiful and gratuitous (ab)use of Shakespeare quotes.
