    Bookmarker's Notes

    The children were immediately fascinated, to the point of being entirely enamoured, having never seen a grown-up quite so openly strange.

    ***

    Jen supposed she understood, now, why the class was so taken with the man. She had no fondness for poshness and stuffiness, but Sims wasn’t necessarily posh in that way that demanded poshness in return, and sniffed up its nose at you if you dared not to have an Oxbridge degree and speak in perfect RP. It was more a quiet, self-imposed dignity that reminded Jen of her own grandmother, like the way that he held himself, conducted himself, was important to him, and it made you think just a bit about how you were holding yourself, made you want to rise to meet it.

    Summary

    Martin gnaws his lower lip. “Do you think he’ll - I mean, do you think it’ll be…”

    Melanie's smile becomes a little less of a grimace. She claps his shoulder. “Martin. It’ll be fine. It’s only temporary. He’s not moving in.”

    Martin chuckles. “Yes. Of course.”

    Jon's flat is being fumigated. He is not impressed. Martin offers his spare bedroom.

    Summary

    “Blood and battle are all I have ever known.” --Agron from the lands east of the Rhine

    WARNINGS: If you've seen the TV show, you know what kind of triggers to expect. (I feel that the Starz Spartacus series itself is "Explicit" and, since this work is an expansion on that, I'm sticking with that rating.) FYI, I have ZERO plans to describe Non-Con/NCS in detail.

    NOTES: Feel free to browse through the comments. Some interesting character discussions happen there... but mostly I just spout more of my headcanon and enjoy being ridiculous. (^_~)
