    Summary

    They say when the last of the great Earth-born architects built the Labyrinth, he built it so that none could escape. Ariadne knows this to be a lie. She travels its twists and turns with her brother every night and returns to her bedchambers every dawn.

    That is, she does until Theseus arrives with the third set of tributes.

    Summary

    My subject in this tale is the life of Alexander the King. The career of this man embraced such a multitude of events that my preamble shall consist of nothing more than this one plea: if I do not record all his most celebrated achievements that you not regard this as a fault. Plutarch, Life of Alexander

    Alexander at the tomb of Achilles: Oh fortunate youth, to have found Homer as the herald of your glory! Cicero, Pro Archia

    With love and undying fame at stake, Alexander takes matters into his own hands.

    Does a really good job of showing Angela growing up a little, while staying very true to her character and the tone of the show. I can't think of anything I would have done differently.

    It's the Robin Hood/Will Scarlet slash epic I never knew I needed! (All right, it's not an epic, but it's decently long for Yuletide, and if this author wrote an epic I would have read it.) Strongly written characters make this a treat, not least of all Marian, who is a scene-stealer.

    I don't know what I like best about this — the lush, lyrical imagery? The powerful and believable characterization of Rosaline? The insightful criticism of the play? Did I say gorgeous writing already? Much love for this story.

    A story that takes these characters who became so familiar that we no longer really thought about who they were and what they were doing, and gives them life and passion. You can hear an intriguing line like "My blood feeds Hakkar — my soul feeds Jin'do" so many times that it becomes little more than background noise. This author transforms it into a vivid, believable relationship.
