Subject:Yuletide nominations close October 3!

What time for me?

So far no one's put any Sutcliff fandoms (other than the Eagle movie) into the unofficial nominations spreadsheet, but of course that doesn't mean none have been nominated. But if you were thinking about nominating, better hurry!

Subject:"The Point of the Blade"

The Point of the Blade (5209 words) by Island_of_Reil
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Eagle
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Dubious Consent
Relationships: Marcus Flavius Aquila/Esca Mac Cunoval
Characters: Esca Mac Cunoval, Marcus Flavius Aquila, Old Woman (Màthair)
Additional Tags: Knifeplay, Cutting Clothes Off, Dominance, Submission, Verbal Humiliation, Subspace, Hurt/Comfort, Slavery
Summary: This fic was inspired by Wagnetic/wagnetic's "Once," in which Marcus and Esca stay much longer with the Seal People than they did in canon, and Marcus descends into an unhealthy sort of subspace. In this fic, Esca remains loyal to Marcus... but is not gentle with him.

Subject:The Annual Yuletide Roundup: 2013

Not much of a turnout this year for either Eagle or Sutcliff fandoms, but what I've read/skimmed so far is all excellent!

Frontier Wolf

Name and Blood - Alexios/Hilarion - T - 2071 words
In a quiet, private moment, Hilarion asks his lover for the story behind the dolphin ring he wears. Alexios obliges.

Witch's Brat

In Winter - Lovel, Rahere - G - 1305 words
Lovel's thoughts of Rahere, set against the background of Saint Bartholomew's hospital at Smithfield.

The Eagle (movie)

Annum Novum - Marcus/Esca - G - 14,758 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 seemed to lay deep in tribal country.

A Sun To Dissipate - Marcus/Esca - G - 100 words
Marcus finds him in the usual place.

Wherever You Go - Marcus/Esca - E - 3956 words
“We might be meat for hounds tomorrow,” Esca rasps, feeling the words scrape his throat raw and watching for understanding in Marcus’ eyes. They have no time to waste now. None at all.

Characters: Alexios Flavius Aquila, Hilarion
Additional Tags: Dominance/Submission, Role Reversal, Biting, Marking, Hair-pulling, Bathing/Washing, Post-Canon
Summary: Though no-one was about for at least a mile, Hilarion said in a soft voice that would not carry as much as a foot beyond where he and Alexios lay, “Command is a burden as well as an honour. There is a sweetness in yielding it up for a little while, is there not?”

Under the flower-smells he always put all over himself he smelled like he was badly hurt. He smelled like salt too."

Subject:Sutcliff Swap 2013 Collection Open!

If anyone has not yet realized, the Sutcliff Swap 2013 Collection is now open, with 2 pieces of art and 21 stories in 9 fandoms--a very different mix from last year!

Art and fic roundup: Blood Feud, Dawn Wind, Frontier Wolf, Outcast, The Shining Company, The Silver Branch, The Eagle of the Ninth, The Lantern Bearers, and Mark of the Horse LordsCollapse )

Thanks to all of our amazing participants, pinch-hitters, and treat writers, who blew this exchange out of the water yet again!

isiscolo and I haven't decided yet about the exchange's future (I'm guessing either this will be the last year, we'll hand it over to other people if anyone's interested, or it will become an every other year exchange), but it's been a wonderful two years, and we hope everyone will read/view, enjoy, and comment.

A matched pair of Blood Feud fics that AU the end.

Thank you to carmarthen for her aid and encouragement!

Fic: Diptych in Amber I
Fandom: Blood Feud - Rosemary Sutcliff
Pairing: Jestyn/Anders, Jestyn/Alexia
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: still not mine
Summary: “Why is he here?” Alexia asked me softly, when Anders was not in hearing.

“I do not know,” I admitted.

But I did.
There is a thing between you and me that is as strong as love, Anders had said: and that drew him to us, far more strongly than the sea ever drew me.

Summary: “Why do you come back here,” she asked, “when you have all of Alexandria before you, and any sea you please?”

Anders drew back from her a little. “I cannot go home with the blood feud undone,” he said, low-voiced. “And I cannot finish the feud; and so - ”

Anders and Alexia talk.
