2 Works in Marcus Flavius Aquila/Liathan
Marcus is in love with Esca, but Esca would rather not be stifled by a relationship. Instead Esca introduces Marcus to Liathan. At first Marcus and Liathan are perfectly happy with each other, or at least that is what Esca assumes.
Eventually nothing about her friends’ relationship makes sense. When Esca steps back and really looks at the picture in front of her, there is no single problem to address. It is a myriad of problems, and those problems keep multiplying and multiplying.
From this prompt at eagle_kink: "Esca and Marcus, instead of killing the Seal Prince in the final battle, capture him instead and bring him back as sort of a prisoner of war. Having been captured, the Seal Prince is shamed and can never return to his tribe..."
