Boardwalk Empire AU:Margaret becomes queen of Atlantic City after Gyp kills Nucky

The well-wishers saw no tears when they looked into the widow’s eyes, but a hunger and a twisted longing instead. It had always been there but it seemed more voracious now, sharpened and splintered by death and honed by cruelty. a coldness had crept into her bones and ice had filled the hollow places that once gave her pause. She found that there was no apprehension when she spoke, that orders came easily to the tongue and decisions were made without hesitation. “We’re so sorry for your loss, MrsThompson ..how can we help you, MrsThompson...is there anything we could offer?” “You could offer me Gyp Rossetti’s head on a pike,” she said softly, a half-smirk cracking through her bitter stoicism. It wasn’t out of revenge. Nucky didn’t deserve revenge. He had handled his business abysmally and his death came as no surprise, but Margaret would be damned if another man’s mistakes would drag her and her children through the mire she had fought so desperately to escape from.
