    Summary

    It is the year of the consulship of Flavius Lupicinius, three hundred and sixty-seven years after the birth of Christ, and the Roman Empire is in trouble. Emperor Valentinian rules over a weakened Western Empire, whose northern border on the island of Britannia is defended by Hadrian's great wall now some two centuries old. As the enemies of the Empire plan their greatest attack yet, a quiet omega herbalist living in the border town of Luguvalium is ready – until the arrival of a gorgeous green-eyed bow-legged alpha sex god throws his preparations into turmoil. Can the love of Castivel and Decanus survive rebellion, hostage-taking, Latin, little blue pills, the alpha wearing a skirt, and the omega wearing... well, not much?

    Summary

    The relative harmony of Zootopia is still millennia away. The bronze age is a time of constant conflict, not only between species, but within them. In this age of xenophobia, perhaps bridges could still be built between rabbits and foxes. Or at least between one specific rabbit, and one specific fox.

    Summary

    Yugi Mutou believed what the golden box described.

    One wish. She could have one wish.

    What Yugi wanted more than anything was a friend.

    What the girl didn't anticipate when she finished the Millennium Puzzle, though, was that not only would her wish come true, but its completion would set the girl on a path of life altering discovery, changing the course of her future and bearing sway over the fates of those most important in her life, in particular, a certain enigma spirit.

    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.

Taking the assumption that gods were inspired by people in the past, the crafting of the goddess's persona is based on her extraordinary life. Set in the context of the Early Bronze Age Mediterranean, we follow Athena as she recounts her experiences and deeds.

    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.

    Summary

    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

    Unseen and unheard, Ganymede moves through the palace of Olympus with the ease and inconspicuousness of a servant, or at least the gods and goddesses of Olympus do well at playing their part. What reasons have they to worry from a lone human amongst immortals?

    Raised in luxury and tasked with keeping Zeus's goblet and plate full of nectar and ambrosia at all times, Ganymede has never wanted for anything under the watchful eyes of Zeus and Athena, never feared even the volatile Ares, trained as he is at being invisible.

    Until now.

    Summary

    1920's Egyptology AU - Athos is an archaeologist working for the British Museum, Porthos is a tomb robber/black marketeer working for Richelieu. Whilst each is well known in his field, up to now they've never met - until both set out on the trail of the long-lost tomb of Alexander the Great.

    Athos has come into possession of an ancient inscription which indicates the possible location of the tomb - Porthos must steal it from him if he's to be in with a chance of getting there first, but Athos turns out to be not quite the academic pushover he's expecting. To make matters worse, they're not the only ones on the trail of the tomb - which might rather inconveniently also have a curse on it...

    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

    Many years ago during the dark times of Egyptians and Pharaohs, there lived a small settlement of Gravity Falls, where a simple scholar lived. To others, this man was different from the rest of the villagers. This man was a ‘monster’, a bad omen to those around him. This dark haired, middle aged man had a small genetic disorder. Rather the normality of five fingers, he instead had six. Because the town of Gravity Falls believed in the occult, no one wanted to be around him. There was only one man, a man who had been friends with him for a long ten years, that man was Stan. This is their story of how they must over come obstacles, religious cults and an evil, manipulative triangle named Bill Cipher.
