    Summary

    (AU in Ancient Rome)

    Your name is Dave Strider. Gladiator of three years who has lived his life as "peacefully" as one can as a gladiator. But these three year peace have suddenly been broken as something much darker has risen to the surface, bulging as a result of years of dark lies and deaths and much much blood... Not even all those years of training and building up muscle and honing your skills could have prepared you for this.

    It all began with the discovery of an intriguing necklace and with the induction of an unknown and new gladiator, one with bright cerulean blue eyes and unruly black hair.

    Summary

    “Masked for all debaucheries,” Will reminds him, tone entirely too innocent for the words he’s saying.

    Hannibal snorts, but Will can feel his smile, see the glimpse of it through the maw of his mask, a creature with fangs bared, snarling. “What do you know of debaucheries?” he murmurs, slipping his finger through the boy’s belt to tug him back when he stumbles too far forward into the crowd. He reels Will back against him, arm comfortably across his shoulders as they walk.

    A festival of wine and theatre, masks and debauchery...

    Summary

    I've been very slowly working on this, and as a result, it's still in rough stages, but I thought I'd post it anyway. This is in the same verse as my other fic, except it's told from Prussia's (Gaius) point of view. I figured that it would be too hard to explore the relationships of all the characters in my other fic, so might as well write others.

    Summary

    Killius Octavius Durin is an 19-year-old patrician, an orphan living with his uncle as an elite member of Roman society. He's a bit on the spoiled side, with a record of mischief, but is respectable and learning politics.

He's determined to return to Greece and find his family, to rejoin them again.

    But he catches the eye of a brunette during a fight and Venus decides to curse them, crossing their stars. A story of freedom, love and inner daring.

    (Also, Greeks and Romans need to sort out their religions. "Killius, I swear to Zeus-" "Wait, you mean Jupiter, right?")

    Summary

    Listen, I never wanted to end up in some Greek's loony prophecy. I never wanted to leave the Duodecima Fulminata thinking their Centurion was dead.

    But that's not what the Fates had in store for me.

    One day, this tale will seem like fiction, a legend passed down from father to son, the tale of the Hero of Rome. It will get distorted and change as each speaker embellishes and forgets, until it is no longer recognizable.

    A warning to you, fellow soldiers: this is not a tale for the faint hearted. This is a tale that transcends time. There is danger in every era. If any of my words sound familiar, stir a sensation deep within your heart and soul, I implore you: stop reading immediately. Return to your life and forget my words.

    If you do not, they will come for you.

    You have been warned.
