    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.

    If you fall in love with one of the damned, should you join him in his damnation?

    "As a child hearing the song of his beloved mother is woken from deep sleep, so I felt myself drawn back from my darkness by the stern sound of my master's voice."

    Summary

    All the awkwardness of seeking a volunteer for an attempt, which every soldier was convinced was as good as asking a man to cast away his life to no purpose, naturally recommended Colonel Hamilton's offer; in any case, Washington allow'd himself to be persuaded, and the operation was carried out an hour later, in a deserted and fallow field some half a mile from the encampment.

    Summary

    King Edward I is busy marching across Wales conquering people and leaving a trail of castles behind him. And it's all very glorious and nationalistic, no doubt, but the architect Castiel keeps being distracted by a certain devastating grin and the way a certain knight's wrists look in those dark leather vambraces that he insists on wearing even when there's no fighting on the horizon.
