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.
