    Summary

    After a less-than-pleasant break up with his long term partner, Liathan, Esca decides he needs a change of scenery. On a whim, he purchases a horse ranch in rural Tennessee, hoping to start anew and pursue his life-long passion for horses. Esca longs for time to devote solely to himself, a place to think, and as much distance between him and the awful memories he left behind in England. What he doesn't expect is the overly-friendly and overly-handsome farrier, Marcus, for whom - despite his best efforts - Esca can't help but fall.

    Summary

    Marcus goes in to get a tattoo, and is immediately smitten for the artist, Esca.

    Loosely based on that one tweet about the person who was getting a tattoo and the artist touched their back and said "oh honey" and their soul left their body.

    --
    “Well, go on, take it for a spin. It’ll last a couple of days before it starts to fade. Wash it really good with alcohol to get it off if you hate it. Call for an appointment when you’re sure.” Marcus nods.

    He grabs his shirt, tugs it on and then his jacket. Esca nods, Marcus dismissed.

    Marcus makes it 10 minutes away before he’s dialing the number he’s got saved in his phone.

    “Hi, this is Marcus. I’d like to make an appointment with Esca.” Marcus can almost hear the smile in his voice.

    “Marcus, what the fuck? I told you to take some time to think about it.” Esca sounds exasperated over the phone and Marcus imagines the crease between his brows, the displeased purse of his mouth. It makes something light in his chest.

    The clouds were sparking with lightning. Marcus looked at them for a moment, inhaling the smell of rain and thunder...

    Summary

    Who lives in a house like this? Lets take a walk along Ritter Street on a bright sunny day and see.
    -

    I really can't draw, so I have to weave a picture with words for Paul instead.
    -

    Written for Paul Ritter and the plethora of characters he played over the years of his prolific career. He isn't gone, he's just resting.

    I hope I do his characters justice. Every one of them was played to such perfection by him. He's a hard act to live up to!

    He made it so that I could almost touch them as I watched him dancing across the screen.

    Summary

    Marcus is a first year university student from Rome trying to settle in his new life in the UK. The task is already challenging as it is, but it is soon made even more complicated by the arrival of his new, attractive and strangely grumpy neighbour in the student halls.

    As time passes and they get to know each other better, Marcus starts to realise that they are much more similar than he first thought.

    Summary

    Esca was not a good slave. He was insubordinate, he never listened, and he paid for his behaviour with pain and humiliation. But he was a good son, and he had made a promise to his father: to always respect a debt of honour with another, should he enter one.
    And, when life, the gods, or the blind Roman Fates or the evil goddess Rome force him into an oath to a Roman, his life is forever changed.

    His heart is forever changed.

    Summary

    Multivoice podfic of Where Do You Do Your Research, Wikipedia? by Carmarthen

    In which Marcus is a historical novelist and almost all the characters are Roman-British historical reenactors; a romance in emails and bickering over historical details, with guest appearances by EVERYONE. (Rating is for a few slightly dirty text exchanges, nothing explicit.)

    Summary

    After the final battle with the Seal People, Marcus and Esca take a week among the Selgovae to recover their strength and rest. Marcus seems oddly determined that Esca should remain up here with the Selgovae, and Esca can't quite figure out if Marcus is trying to get rid of him. Doggedly determined, he stays by Marcus' side, and they journey south again together. Outside Eboracum, however, in the heartland of former Brigantes territory, Marcus asks Esca if he wants to make a detour into that familiar landscape one last time.

    'These Many Moons Past' is the story of their journey home, and how they process everything, and finally, finally , figure out what they mean to each other. Aka, idiots in love.

    Summary

    Esca always gets up really early on the farm, and this time he comes back after his morning bath to find Marcus still asleep, naked and deliciously inviting in their bed. A rather possessive Esca proceeds to wake Marcus up, and Marcus is only too happy to let him do whatever he likes to him. And to finish, there are some feels, and the reason for Esca's possessiveness is revealed.

    Set after the end of the book/film, when they're both living the dream in the Sussex hills. Would eventually fit the timeline of the much longer (and plottier) story I'm still posting on here (These Many Moons Past)

    Summary

    Esca promised that he'd be there when Marcus woke up from his surgery. The problem is that Marcus keeps waking up with no memory of Esca or of the previous times he's woken up.

    Summary

    Marcus goes in for surgery, and Esca films his response to coming out of anesthesia. It's very sweet.
    ---

    “You were… pretty out of it.” Esca’s voice holds barely restrained laughter.

    “You took a video.” Marcus tries to lift his hands to grab at Esca’s phone, but it’s in his hoodie pocket and his arm won’t reach that far.

    “Sure did.” Esca’s mouth is curved in the smile that Marcus loves so much.

    Summary

    The 9th was gone.

    They had proven it, grieved it and buried it.

    It was no longer the time of the 9th, of Rome or even the Aquila legacy, it was theirs. They had earned it. But they would never get it, Rome was claiming her son and Esca would lose everything.

    Summary

    Marcus dies first. Esca isn’t long behind.
    This is literally just whump, with only the faintest whiff of a happy ending, if you squint.
