    Summary

    The gladiator/ancient Rome "The 100" AU no one asked for.

    Clarke/Claudia is the Domina of the most prominent gladiator training school in Rome. Lexa/Livia is a captured Pictish warrior who finds herself thrust into the center of the city's most popular spectacle. Attraction, distrust, anger, betrayal, bloodshed, and lust all play out as the two find themselves entangled in the harsh political and social realities of Ancient Rome - and each other.

    Summary

    In which royals are poisoned and kleos is to be won on the sands of the arena, a madman sits on the throne and the Fates place bets on which sad little guinea pig will take the plunge and become the unsung antihero behind the scenes. This is not about sweeping victories and convenient gods dropping in to crush the enemy in glorious battle. This is about the mysterious bloodstains that keep appearing in out-of-the-way corridors and the slow smiles shared by father and son as the pawns move closer and closer to their scandalous endgame.

    Summary

    Before he was stripped of his identity, branded like cattle, and thrown into a ring to kill for entertainment, Axel was a soldier in the army of the region of Gaul. When Rome's vast army invaded, Axel was enslaved as a gladiator to compete in Rome's bloody circuses.

    His only salvation from endless bloodshed rests in the hands of young Master Roxas of the Thirteenth Grove, in chains of irony.

    Emperor Janson Validus had attended to every tournament that had taken place annually in his realm.

    But this year- this year was most certainly getting a full chapter in the history books.

    Or

    Minho will do anything to throw himself into Newt's arms at the end of the day, even if that included chasing after his own death

    Summary

    “History is written by the winners, unless it is not written at all.”

    I have heard the saying many times. But I have the foresight to see that even the winner’s story will be lost.
    New doctrine glistens just beyond the horizon.
    Now, I am the mother of Wardens, and by the time this lands in your possession, I will be an inconvenience with my truth twisted into a matter of a docile, less threatening, lie.
    Carinus is gone… The Blight is over.
    But our creation, The Grey Wardens, continue.
    Let them know of where they came from.
    Tell at least some of them of the blood, sweat, and tears that brought them to where they are today.
    Let us be real to them in the way only stories can be.
    I leave the true story to them.
    The true story... of what will like as be only the first Blight.

    - From a journal given to your Warden-Commander after being sworn to secrecy.

    Summary

    Today was August the first, which meant that the most extensive slave auction would be held in sometime between evening and dusk. As the sun bled into the clouds in brilliant shades of crimson and magenta, the first of the gas lights flickering on to chase that minuscule bit of darkness away, nervy shadows danced on the walls as slaves began to line up with their owners behind the brightly lit area.

    Summary

    Eggsy Unwin, the rebellious omega son of the co-ruler of Rome, is arranged to marry his father’s co-sovereign, the alpha Harry Hart, as a way of uniting their political alliance. Lee Unwin assures Harry that their marriage will “tame” Eggsy; but his son becomes considerably more disobedient after his forced marriage.

    Loosely based on the tragic and epic love story of Pompey the Great and Julia Caesaris (the daughter of Caesar), “Now We Are Free” unfolds as a tale arranged partners turned soulmates, as well as one of Eggsy’s determination to put an end to the tyranny, slavery, and discrimination that plagues Rome - motivated when his friend, Roxanne - and her child - suffer greatly at the hands of it.
