A Clear View of the Sea - hesychasm (Jintian) - The Eagle | Eagle of the Ninth (2011), Eagle of the Ninth Series - Rosemary Sutcliff [Archive of Our Own]
Beautiful story in which Marcus/Esca go alone to build the house for Marcus/Cottia, and Esca believes he will be on his own once she joins them, and has to deal with being the last of the Brigantes. Full of poetry & feelings.
"What she spoke of is not what you're speaking of."

"How do you know?" Marcus demanded. "You haven't let anyone speak to you of anything. You haven't listened. You've only heard your own thoughts, things neither Cottia nor I would ever say."

Esca felt like a recalcitrant horse, one which refused to respond to reins or commands. "I can't even envision your thoughts. Do you imagine that we'll share you? That sometimes you'll reach for me in the night, and sometimes for Cottia? That you'll take your pleasure of us equally, whenever you want?"

He thought that by speaking so crudely, he could shock or shame Marcus into giving up this foolhardy idea. But Marcus said simply, bluntly: "Yes. Although of course, it will also depend on whenever you or she want. And you might consider taking your pleasure of both of us. I know she will certainly be thinking of you and I that way. She says things to me sometimes, about the insatiable appetites of Iceni women. She claims it comes from her mother, who has had two husbands."

For a moment, the pictures in Esca's head stole his breath. "I think you've lost your mind," he said finally.

No More Mine Than Yours - LolaFeist - The Eagle (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Esca & Cottia work out their belligerent relationship by fighting/fucking on the floor while Marcus watches.
Esca fought with control, riding her tempest until he found the right moment to let her momentum carry her off balance, and then he had her on her back, and he wrenched her thighs open, and Marcus sat up further, prepared to bark out some kind of protest, but—

“Esca,” Cottia gasped out, unmistakably hot. She opened her nightshift and her nipples stood hard and dark and Esca found one and mouthed at it like a hungry babe.

It didn’t appear to be a contest anymore. Neither of them looked at Marcus, so he stroked himself firmly, with an idle rhythm. Normally, Esca and Cottia never touched. They worked together with silent efficiency when they had to, and sometimes shared quiet conversations about Cub, but nothing else. Nothing like this. Nothing like this at all.

A Sufficient Love - Isis - Eagle of the Ninth - Rosemary Sutcliff [Archive of Our Own]
Cottia encourages Esca to go after what he wants. Nice and happy-making.
She took a deep breath. "I do not think Marcus knows that you do not intend to go to Hibernia."

"It is just a joke," Esca protested.

"I envied you at first," Cottia continued quietly, as though he had not spoken. "Sometimes I still do, a little. You and Marcus went together north of the wall, and I?" She gave a short, sharp laugh. "I went to Aquae Sulis and bathed in pleasant waters while you fought shoulder to shoulder for each other's life."

There was nothing he could say to that. She was Marcus's wife. What more was there?

Her voice softened. "I am happy that we are together here. But I also feel sad for you, for what you do not have. For what you want in your heart."

A Space to Fill - Seascribe - The Eagle | Eagle of the Ninth (2011), Eagle of the Ninth - Rosemary Sutcliff [Archive of Our Own]
OT3 pwp.
"I want to see," Cottia says, when Esca is making Marcus stutter and gasp, fucking him on his fingers. With an effort, Marcus lifts off of her, his arms trembling. Esca's fingers keep moving, making obscene, slick noises, and Cottia says, "You're beautiful, Marcus, so beautiful like this."

Marcus' face is hot with embarrassment, and he cannot believe they are looking at him like this, when he is so vulnerable, and he hates it and he loves it and he thinks he could almost come from that alone, from Esca's fingers in his arse and the scald of this joyful shame in his belly.

Warmed Out of the Grey Ash - Carmarthen - Eagle of the Ninth - Rosemary Sutcliff [Archive of Our Own]
Marcus is married to Cottia and they live with Esca, but neither has figured out their relationship to the others yet.
At night they slept inside the walls of the half-built roundhouse, under a makeshift shelter, only a striped native rug hung between to separate Marcus and Cottia from where Esca lay. Cottia felt small and birdlike in Marcus’ arms, like she might fly away if he did not hold her to him.

They had been married since spring, and he did not know how to touch her. They were tired, always, and it made a good reason to simply fall asleep at the end of the day; and the woman she had become while he was in the north was still something of a stranger to him.

The women he had known before--not many, and briefly--were the sorts of women who lived around the forts, women who knew exactly what to do. If they had laughed at a young soldier’s fumbling, they had done so where he could not hear them. He knew he would not bear it, if he hurt Cottia.

And then, too, there was Esca, on the other side of the rug.

The Door into Britannia [ambyr]
Esca so rarely asked for anything, it was not to Marcus’s taste to deny him. And yet—“It is no water creature, surely, with a mane and tail like a torch,” he said, aware as he did so that it was a feeble argument. There was something odd about the creature, and it could be dangerous even if it was other than what Esca supposed.

The horse stamped its hoof. “I certainly am not. And if you leave me out in this damp mist, I will burn your hayfield and your orchard beside.”

Esca and Marcus both stared at it in astonishment.

[The Eagle] Silentium by osprey_archer
Perhaps this feeling was only a thing of the moment, Esca thought, looking away from the sunlight limning Marcus and Cottia in gold. Tomorrow Cottia might be merely Cottia again, and again it would be only looking at Marcus that made him ache.
