    Summary

    Welcome to the Caro-verse! In a nutshell, the Caro-verse is a large, sprawling AU of Romeo and Juliet. It's built off of two major departures from the original play. The first departure is that Mercutio survives his Act III duel with Tybalt. The second departure is that Benvolio and Mercutio become lovers, and they spend quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to approach life in late-sixteenth-century Italy from that perspective.

    Summary

    The City is a place where all mythologies and folklore mingle and mix. It is the mother of Cities. The rainbow serpent bridge may turn into a serpent again during rush hour commute (and isn't *that* annoying). While the red brick road spirals out through parts of itself that the City has discarded. The City sprawls across space. It condenses on an island. It skyscrapers and what happens in the clouds stays there. Although, sometimes it may rain god infants. Eros and Inanna give a presentation on polyamory at their local chapter of City Love gods (the Power point was amazing!). Gilgamesh and his dead friend Enkidu run a charity to gather up stray Sumerian zombies. While Odin and Set strike a deal. Monster fog. Monstrous traffic. But if you go in the park, don't eat the Gingerbread House. It's a landmark.

    Summary

    My king, do not think that my dedication to you and your cause has diminished. But, even if I die for it, my dignity will not bow to your pride.

    Even friendship had its limits and Alexander’s words, “Without me, you are nothing”, had cut Hephaistion deep.

    Summary

    There is a secret Rider has, and that is that he can access his ultimate Noble Phantasm without manifesting it into the world around him. Such is the beauty of a reality marble. Waver takes no notice when Alexander sits down and withdraws into himself - he is already fast asleep, having crawled into bed and cast a spell for dreamless sleep moments after they returned from Caster’s workshop.

    Within moments of stepping into his camp, Rider is overwhelmed by familiar faces rushing to him, and he greets them all in turn. To five messengers, he asks that his best generals, bodyguards, second self, wife and friends be gathered for a symposium in his own tent, and they all disappear without asking for specific names. The king’s confidants do not need to be named, only gathered.

    Summary

    My subject in this tale is the life of Alexander the King. The career of this man embraced such a multitude of events that my preamble shall consist of nothing more than this one plea: if I do not record all his most celebrated achievements that you not regard this as a fault. Plutarch, Life of Alexander

    Alexander at the tomb of Achilles: Oh fortunate youth, to have found Homer as the herald of your glory! Cicero, Pro Archia

    With love and undying fame at stake, Alexander takes matters into his own hands.
