    Esca tries to figure out what his life will be like with his new master. Not bad, apparently.

    Summary

    The worst dreams were not his nightmares. He had faced blood and death since being a young man, had held his brothers as they breathed their last, honored their spilled blood with prayers and remembrances. When he dreamt of them, of their faces which had once smiled without blood marring their teeth, he welcomed their presence, as it reminded him of their lives.

    No, the worst dreams, the ones which left him breathless and shaking in his bed, were those in which he was hale and healthy again.

    Summary

    Flavia Aquila, daughter of the primus pilum of the ill-fated Ninth Legion, was herself a centurion — until she was wounded at Isca Dumnonorium and her secret discovered. Nearly two years later, she rides into the wild North of Britannia to learn what happened to her father, his Legion, and its Eagle standard. Alongside her rides Esca, the fierce, loyal, and strangely beautiful slave whose life she saved at the Games at Calleva and whom her uncle bought for her. Beyond the Wall, their relationship will change profoundly — and Flavia will learn what became of her father and his men.

    Summary

    Это история по схеме 5+1 о том, как Марк Флавий Аквила и Эска, сын Куновала могли бы встретиться, и к счастью, не встретились – и одной действительно случившейся встрече, которая прошла значительно лучше. Фактически, набор депрессивных AU в каноничном историческом периоде и немного счастья.

    Summary

    When Marcus loses everything (his career, his health, and his hope of salvaging the family honor), he thinks that there's nothing else he could possibly want out of life. But a chance encounter with a captive sky-pirate leads Marcus to realize that perhaps his old dreams just weren't big enough.

    Otherwise known as: Marcus and Esca invent the internet.

    Summary

    Set in Elizabethan England. Marcus and Esca are perhaps a couple of years younger than they were in "The Eagle." Most of the characters—Richard Burbage, John Heminges, Thomas Pope, Will Kempe, etc.—were actual members of the theatre company to which Shakespeare belonged. This story takes place while the company still performed at The Theatre, before the construction of The Globe.
    Marcus is a recently-hired principal actor in Shakespeare's company, The Lord Chamberlain's Men. (During that period, of course, women's roles were played by actors, and youthful female characters were often played by the apprentice boys.) Because of the popularity of Romeo and Juliet, the play is to be re-staged a year after its successful first performance, with Marcus as Romeo. Esca, who has been assigned to him as apprentice, is a very reluctant Juliet.
    Warnings: Era-specific, anti-foreigner sentiment, typical of the period (not the author's sentiments!)

    Summary

    In the beginning, there are many reasons that Esca may not declare himself to Marcus. In the end, there are none.

    Summary

    This is a Five Things Plus One story about ways that Marcus Flavius Aquila and Esca son of Cunoval might have met, and fortunately did not--and one way they did, which went rather better. Basically a set of depressing canon-era AUs plus some happiness. (Also available in Russian translation.)

    Summary

    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.)
