Giorno is the son of a politician sent by the Romans to establish safer trade routes and political power among Romans in the recently reconquered city of Pompeii. The year is 75 BC and Giorno has been living in this picturesque city for a year with his father, brothers, and subordinates. His life of philosophically questioning the seemingly unending hypocrisy of the Roman society was flipped upside down when he fell in love with a gladiator called Guido.
Will they be able to get together despite their different social statuses? Or will they have to burn down all the palaces to attain their freedom?
( An ancient Rome AU. Disclaimer here is that this is based on my poorly research historical factors and I used the city of Pompeii as the place of this AU because the city has a map I can follow. The story is set in a time frame during the Roman republic. PLEASE bear in mind that my cultural research around homosexuality in ancient Rome was used to write this AU. I do not condone what they used to see as "Normalized" and there are some heavily fucked up stuff there that I'll explore in the fic. If you have criticism over those cultural aspects, remember im basing it on historical research over those topics )
