    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

    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.

    Filippos, now known as Fili, is a Greek slave who was kidnapped at the mere age of 7 from his native Greece and taken to Italy, where he was sold to various Roman owners. 13 years later, he's forced to participate in gladiator fights but he can earn his freedom and he's a natural fighter. 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?")
