Things to Consider in a Villa with Rather Thin Walls - veilchenjaeger - The Eagle | The Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Summary: On the third day of Saturnalia, the aftermath of a long night gives to Marcus a raging hangover and one very uncomfortable conversation. Sadly, not everything can be blamed on the undiluted wine.

<blcokquote>It takes Esca a few moments to place the word, but it doesn’t shake him. It’s strange to consider that he didn’t grow up with it being thrown around by the boys who’d only just learnt its meaning. “You Romans make things far more complicated than they need to be,” he says. “I’m not going to let anyone degrade me because they think they know what we do in bed.”

As if to make a point, he takes Marcus’ hand and traces the almost faded red line on his wrist again. Marcus considers being insulted by the implications, but he stops himself before he can jump to conclusions.

Runs radiating under - chantefable - The Eagle | The Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Summary: After resolving the matter with the eagle, Marcus and Esca slowly head back south to Calleva.
In which Esca is busy with logistics, planning, cultural mediation, networking, and future planning. Meanwhile, Marcus has a lot of feelings.
It irked Marcus to be weak in this, a nuisance to his free friend as much as he had been a nuisance to a loyal slave, a steadfast companion, for Esca had to match his pace to that of Marcus, and offer him comfort whenever they stopped to rest. Marcus was profoundly grateful that Esca had went ahead and arranged horses for them: proper local stock, short and sturdy, and if they had to stay with the small settlement of the Selgovae a little while, trading some seasonal labour in addition to the money, then, well, it pleased Marcus' heart all too well. That way, they got to spend more time together, suspended in the twilight hour, when no decision needed to be made just yet; no longer on the other side of the wall, but not yet properly where Rome was Rome, either.

Chosen Man - Chapter 1 - Sineala - The Eagle | The Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own] - R - 116,551 words
Summary: The son of the man who lost the Eagle of the Ninth would never be allowed a first command of his very own fort, would he?

Marcus is posted not to Isca Dumnoniorum, but to a wretched and run-down garrison north of the Wall. There he finds that he is the new centurion of a group of scouts and spies, all of them British. He has few supplies and no experience. His men distrust him. His superiors despise him. His second-in-command is an incompetent drunkard. And the local tribes are determined to kill all of them.

But the worst thing of all is one of Marcus' soldiers. He is an enigmatic, dangerous, and insubordinate man by the name of Esca, who makes Marcus yearn for terrifying things he has never before wanted and can never, ever let himself have...
