Learn to Fly by Sineala (PG, 1,485 words)
And everyone knew that much about the rare winged-men of Britain: they broke.

Rome had found that out soon enough. Oh, certainly, the winged-men could not be caught once they were in the air, and they had a knack for avoiding even the most skilled archers. On the ground, too, they were fast, nimble, as Esca was. As he had been. But they were hollow-boned like birds, fragile, and if you could manage to get your hands on such men they were easy to ground. Permanently.

Annum Novum by exeterlinden (PG, 14,786 words)
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.

Chosen Man by Sineala (Adult, 116,551 words)
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...

The Centurion's Hound by Jay Tryfanstone (R, 12,857 words)
He had not changed much, in ten years, the smooth-faced tribune who had sat in Uncle Aquila's house and discussed with them the issue of a certain Roman Eagle and a Legion that vanished into the mists. Not much at all. There was still that air of detached contempt, something about the way he held his shoulders, that reminded Marcus what it had felt like that year to be crippled and aching.

"I am glad to see you awake and well," said Drusillus as he extinguished the now-unneeded rushlight, then went to Marcus's bedside. "Your man will be back soon to help you clean yourself."

Marcus frowned. "He is not a slave."

"No," agreed the other, "he is your freeman, or so he told us. But I think he would take the head off any who would dare tend you in his place."

The Place You Are by ariadnes_string (PG-13, 1,500 words)
Esca was up, fighting-ready, the moss-wet smell heavy in his nostrils, before he realized he had no idea what had awakened him. Crouching, he listened, but heard no sound beyond the cave’s mouth—no animals or hunters or Guern returning. Then, beside him Marcus tossed his head restlessly and half-stifled another groan, and Esca understood that the disturbance had come from closer by.

The girl is good. She is quiet and adept, works hard with a confidence suiting years of practice, even though she cannot have seen more than fifteen summers. After a few weeks, she smiles tentatively at Marcus as if she knows to be grateful. She smiles at Esca too, wider, lips parted to reveal large, even white teeth.

Esca never sees.

The Days Beyond by misspamela (NC-17, 14,258 words)
Esca's new master was a fool.

Perhaps not simple, but he couldn’t see what he had done. He tried to dismiss Esca, dismiss his life, and the saving of it, as inconsequential. He was a fool, and an arrogant fool at that. Romans, just blundering through the world, never caring what they destroyed on the way.

Esca’s new master did not understand that they were now tied together by fate, for as long as they would live. He did not understand that he now owned Esca in a way that he could never have bought with gold.
