    Summary

    The problem with being the Guardian of Wonder was that Wonder was not Awe. That feeling of surprise and admiration was certainly part of Wonder, but so was the unstoppable desire to know things. To learn, to explore, to understand.

    North did not understand. And that unrest, that constant wondering kept him awake this night.

    Summary

    In which the Tribune Servius Placidus goes undercover in a ridiculous fake moustache, and learns that Yorkshire girls should really not be messed with.

    When Marcus asks Placidus what he thinks of Britain, Placidus replies "‘The girls are well enough, and the hunting. For the rest - Roma Dea! I can bear to leave it behind me!". I wondered which girls he had met, and how...

    Normally I only really write gen, but frankly Placidus is not really a gen kind of guy, and he really wants to be in stories that are all about GIRLS and BOTTOMS. I'm counting myself lucky that things didn't get any steamier, honestly.

    Inspired by motetus's awesome card: here

    This story fits with Claudius Hieronimianus's People although it is not dependent on it.

    Summary

    The merchant, Gnaeus, who had sold Marcus this property, had spoken of a solid main building, of well-kept pens and fertile soil, all newly abandoned by deceitful tenants and only cheap because he was tired of the whole business and wanted the land off his hands for good. He had talked of neighbours and a village nearby with opportunities of trade, but he had entirely failed to mention that the house lay deep in tribal country.

    Summary

    Written for Saturnalia 2013, the wildcard prompts were "waffles, kitten, pillow, outlast, tuxedo". My mind seized upon "kitten" and, well, let's just say that there is more schmoop in here than you can poke a stick at. (I mean, just look at the title.)

    Summary

    Fires are common in Rome; they aren't difficult to be lit. But what if one man was behind the worst of them? And what if he's set his sights on Celatus as his next challenge? With innocent lives on the line and a ruthless criminal goading a Cornelius forth, they'll need to have all their wits about them to get through alive. But citizenship can be a tricky thing -- and some slaves are treated very poorly indeed...

    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

    So, this is set in the Grimm 'verse back when the Romans invaded Britain. The poem is supposedly by a young Pict shortly before a battle she does not expect to live through (in my head Picts are a rare Scottish wesen race who have intricate blue markings and literally flaming hair when they woge, fierce fighters that have strange abilities 'second sight' sometimes dream or 'see' the future, the most skilled at this are their religious leaders the Druids, most of the time it manifests in a fight as an instinct of how your enemy is going to move and how to counter).
