    Summary

    Roman AU. After saving Danarius from death by a strange illness, the Roman mage hands over his slave Fenris to Gothic spirit healer Anders as a gift of gratitude. Fenris, who has recently started to become violent and defensive against the terrible kind of love Danarius shows him, is completely unable to cope with the entirely different behavior Anders shows him. His new dominus is kind of tired from the world and kind of different from every other mage he has encountered so far. He does not want anything from Fenris, does not even treat him as a slave, and the more Fenris gets an inkling of what freedom may be, the more he finds himself wanting to know why Anders fled his home and why he is feared enough in the capital to be left alone.

    Summary

    "My name is Gaius Julius Caesar. I have seen the borders of the known world and conquered Gaul. My actions caused the end of the Roman Republic. I crossed the Rubicon to take up arms against my erstwhile ally, Pompey the Great, once the husband of my beloved daughter, Julia and the scheming Optimates. Pompey was murdered in Egypt by the traitorous Ptolemy XIII and his advisors after I defeated him at Pharsalus. I returned victorious to Rome after crushing the last opposition and was named Dictator for life. Today, the day I write this down, is the fifteenth of March, the Ides of March."

    Gaius Julius Caesar finds himself in the land of Skyrim after the Ides of March. Being betrayed by his friends, having his loved ones no longer, he will have to build up his life again.

    Summary

    This is an 'What If'-reality telling what might have happened if Marcus Retus would never have traveled to ancient Germania and never met Erik. Maybe, he would have been a legatus and served in Syria, meeting Auba there.
    My alternate Marcus Retus now lives in Rome, being the right hand of the emperor Tiberius. He watches the gladiator fights with Tiberius one sunny afternoon in the Circus Maximus and there, they meet again. Auba is a gladiator now and has to fight for his life. Will Marcus be able to save him? And what will he do if he will be forced to choose between his emperor and an unimportant gladiator?

    Summary

    Just collecting all the snippets from tumblr and LJ and giving them a home.

    *new as of 6/17* 92- Chris/Sebastian: in which Chris happens to be a personal assistant on a talk show, and today's guest happens to be the astronaut Sebastian Stan
    91- Erik/Charles: steampunk AU with someone finally saying I love you
    90- Steve/Bucky: Bucky doesn’t just learn to cook. Bucky, once able (once finally able, at last, after reasons physical and mental that tear up Steve’s heart to comprehend) to eat solid food again, makes up for years of taste-deprivation with a vengeance.
    89- Steve/Bucky: based on that video of baby Sebastian Stan in the subway; happy endings, couch-cuddles, pancakes
    88- James/Michael: James might have a thing for Harry Potter...
    87- Steve/Bucky: Bucky touches more, these days: fluffy sofa-pillows, a stray leaf caught in a bush along their running route, the cocoa-heated ceramic of a mug, Steve’s hand or cheek or bare skin spread out across beckoning midnight sheets. Bucky touches more and smiles more.
    86- Steve/Bucky: looking good, and a kiss
    85- Chris/Sebastian: Avengers-themed handcuffs
    84- Steve/Bucky: model and fashion designer AU

    Summary

    Since you know your husband's life and fidelity belong to you, [my wife,] and no other woman presses or threatens your marriage bed, why do you torture yourself foolishly because of servants as though they were mistresses? Love with them is both brief and fleeting. I will prove to you that boys provide more to you than to their master: They make it so that you are your man's only woman [femina sola viro]; they give what you, wife, do not want to give. 'But I will give it,' you say, 'so that my spouse's love will not go wandering astray from the marriage bed.' It is not the same thing: I want a cherry, not a prune: So that you have no doubt about which is the cherry, yours is the prune. A matron and woman should know her limitations: Leave their part to the boys, and use yours. -Martial, Epigrams 12.96
