    Summary

    Twenty years ago The Eagle of the Ninth was the first novel I ever slashed. What I wrote then is entirely different to what I write now, and better for it, but the love for Rosemary Sutcliff’'s characters remains the same.

    Marcus and Esca, beyond the Wall.

    Summary

    this porny snippet (is it even still a snippet? it sure as hell begun as one) has been inspired by the Starfighter by Hamlet Machine.
    I would like to thank by two beautiful betas Riventhorn who run through it right before the deadline and Lalazee that combed through it afterwards.

    Summary

    INTRODUCTION TO THE VERSE:
    so, basically coeurdesoleil and I have come up with this AU where Esca and Marcus grow up together.
    Papa Aquila is disgraced but alive and remotely well, and after Marcus and his mother come to live with him in Britain they all settle in Calleva. Esca on the other hand, is a bit like Cottia in the book verse, his family slaughtered when he was little more than a toddler, he's taken in by a rather eccentric couple of a who had pretty much gone native (( Quintus Lucianus Sura )) and a straight-talking super-hot Romanized Briton lady Caia Tuditana. My face-cast for it is Rufus Sewell and Christina Hendricks respectively.
    They meet for the first time when Esca's around 7 and Marcus is 10.

    Summary

    After the return of the Eagle, Rome is not done with Marcus Aquila. He and Esca are persuaded to infiltrate a group of potential conspirators -- possibly-traitorous men about whom there are yet other shameful rumors, stories of debauchery and vice. What do they get up to at their dinner-parties? To find out the truth, Marcus and Esca must pretend to be lovers, but it is a difficult thing to pretend to be what Marcus so badly wishes they could be in truth. (Or: Marcus and Esca go undercover as gay at an orgy.)

    Summary

    Set in Elizabethan England. Marcus and Esca are perhaps a couple of years younger than they were in "The Eagle." Most of the characters—Richard Burbage, John Heminges, Thomas Pope, Will Kempe, etc.—were actual members of the theatre company to which Shakespeare belonged. This story takes place while the company still performed at The Theatre, before the construction of The Globe.
    Marcus is a recently-hired principal actor in Shakespeare's company, The Lord Chamberlain's Men. (During that period, of course, women's roles were played by actors, and youthful female characters were often played by the apprentice boys.) Because of the popularity of Romeo and Juliet, the play is to be re-staged a year after its successful first performance, with Marcus as Romeo. Esca, who has been assigned to him as apprentice, is a very reluctant Juliet.
    Warnings: Era-specific, anti-foreigner sentiment

    Summary

    Marcus, Esca, and Cottia build a house and a life in the Down Country. This is somewhat complicated by Esca being emotionally guarded, Marcus being prone to saying exactly the wrong thing, and Cottia being a teenager who's angry about everything. Warning: As a canon-compliant story, Cottia is 15 or 16 here, so if implied sex between a teenager and a 20-something bothers you, you may wish to avoid. Obviously she is an adult in her culture and historical context. Bookverse.

    Summary

Lonely and in disgrace, Marcus soldiers across the empire, certain that his own soulmate is out there, and he strives to find him even as duty and misfortune would keep them apart.
