Dressing Esca - Chapter 1 - ForzaDelDestino, savagesnakes (halfpennybuddha) - The Eagle | Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own]

Summary


Marcus is an American, recently discharged from the army, and living in London with his Uncle Aquila. He goes to work for his uncle’s art packing and shipping company, currently contracted to pack and deliver ancient Roman statuary and other objects from London to a museum in the US. Esca, son of Uncle Aquila’s former Scottish housekeeper, is an intriguing thorn in Marcus’ side: intense, contradictory, oddly attractive…and quite possibly the worst-dressed person Marcus has ever known.

[Inspired by the series of photographs entitled "Jamie Bell: What Not to Wear," posted in LJ’s ninth_eagle on August 14, by ninja_orange. The photos depict the evolution of Mr Bell's fashion sense, ranging from the really, truly awful to sleek stylishness and simple, well-chosen interview garb.

Much Ado About Marcus - ForzaDelDestino - The Eagle | Eagle of the Ninth (2011) [Archive of Our Own]

Much Ado About Marcus

Summary:



Set in Elizabethan England. Marcus and Esca are perhaps a couple of years younger than they were in "The Eagle." Most of the characters—Richard Burbage, John Heminges, Thomas Pope, Will Kempe, etc.—were actual members of the theatre company to which Shakespeare belonged. This story takes place while the company still performed at The Theatre, before the construction of The Globe.
Marcus is a recently-hired principal actor in Shakespeare's company, The Lord Chamberlain's Men. (During that period, of course, women's roles were played by actors, and youthful female characters were often played by the apprentice boys.) Because of the popularity of Romeo and Juliet, the play is to be re-staged a year after its successful first performance, with Marcus as Romeo. Esca, who has been assigned to him as apprentice, is a very reluctant Juliet.
Warnings: Era-specific, anti-foreigner sentiment

Eagle of the Ninth Fans - Not For Sale
Title: Not for Sale
Author: forza_del_d
Genre: Canon era
Pairing: Marcus/Esca
Warnings: None
Rating: R

Book and movie verse. Sometimes all it takes is one small incident to make one realize what one wants. After the events of "The Eagle," Esca is Marcus' friend and armour-bearer, no longer his slave, but Marcus ponders the nature of their bond, and wrestles with the fact that his feelings go beyond mere comradeship.

How many times a day do you access your email account?
Um...which one? (Work account - constantly. Others - sporadically. I'm pretty bad about checking my personal email accounts, which is terrible.)

I'm completely new to this site, and a little intimidated by its size and complexity, so bear with me. I've read some of the stuff posted here (fiction), and its great. One of these days I'll get round to a bit more exploration of what this place has to offer.
