Four Seasons - jamjar - The Eagle | The Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Summum crede nefas animam praeferre pudori
et propter vitam vivendi perdere causas.

Count it the greatest sin to prefer life to honour,
and for the sake of living to lose what makes life worth living.

After the return of the Eagle, Marcus takes Esca to Rome to meet the rest of his family. Esca decides to alleviate the pressures of the situation by pretending what Marcus' family assumes: that he and Marcus are romantically involved. Maybe he should have consulted Marcus first.

Fighter - PlaneJane - The Eagle | Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Marcus Aquila is an undercover Metropolitan police officer. His assignment is to infiltrate a slave-trafficking organisation which trades in men, bought and sold to fight in cages, sometimes to the death. When he makes the impulsive decision to intervene during a 'kill fight' involving a fierce young fighter called Esca, Marcus inadvertently finds himself the owner of his very own slave. Now Marcus has to find a way to complete his assignment, as well as gaining Esca's trust, without blowing his cover. The question is, can he do it before the secrets and lies catch up with him, and Marcus loses everything?

Annum Novum - exeterlinden - The Eagle | The Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
The merchant, Gnaeus, who had sold Marcus this property, had spoken of a solid main building, of well-kept pens and fertile soil, all newly abandoned by deceitful tenants and only cheap because he was tired of the whole business and wanted the land off his hands for good. He had talked of neighbours and a village nearby with opportunities of trade, but he had entirely failed to mention that the house lay deep in tribal country.

In which they acquire a child. I'd write a real review, but my brain is kind of stuck on "KIDFIC!!!!!!!!! omg," so, uh, sorry. But I think this fic is great, and packs a lot of wonderful character moments into a relatively small word count.

Chosen Man - Sineala - The Eagle | The Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
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...

Hetaeriae Eaeque Brevi Fient - Sineala - The Eagle | Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
After the return of the Eagle, Rome is not done with Marcus Aquila. He and Esca are persuaded to infiltrate a group of potential conspirators -- possibly-traitorous men about whom there are yet other shameful rumors, stories of debauchery and vice. What do they get up to at their dinner-parties? To find out the truth, Marcus and Esca must pretend to be lovers, but it is a difficult thing to pretend to be what Marcus so badly wishes they could be in truth. (Or: Marcus and Esca go undercover as gay at an orgy.)
