Much fun was had by all, and more will be revealed in the next "Suppressed Transmission" After-Action Report, but I worked too bloody hard on this not to brag here -- I wrote a lost Shakespeare play. Complete with the reason it was suppressed, which appears in the last scene.

Okay, I didn't write it, per se, but I plotted it. Behind the cut, then, I give you, ladies and gentles, all that remains of Master William Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Won, the lost sequel to Love's Labour's Lost.1

That's just desperate flop-sweat on the brow of people trying to justify doctoral theses, all of it based on a tossed-off guess by Edmund Malone 250 years ago. No, Love's Labour's Won is well and truly lost, just like Cardenio.
