Author's notes:
Notes: Hmm, it wasn't until I'd all but finished this fic that I suddenly realised the similarities to Layna's wonderful 'Buying Trouble.' However, I hope that everyone will agree that the resemblance is very superficial once you start reading it. I guess there is just something so irresistible at the thought of Qui as a Roman <g>.

While this was supposed to be just a tiny ObiChan ficlet - my very first too - like most things I write the damn thing persisted in developing a neo-plot and yes, I do have some thoughts of possible future stories. [...] Many warm thanks go to Raven, Res and Eil for swift and invaluable betaing!

Rating: NC-17

Warning: Non-graphic rape and implied sexual abuse. No spoilers, very AU.

Recs and Reviews

An extremely seductive AU in which the Roman General Quintus Gaius meets a young Celtic slave named Benion. Beautifully written, with elegant prose and stunning imagery, this is one of my favorite AU's in any fandom.[1]
In every universe, Xanatos' love for his master twists and turns on itself -- even where he is a Tribune to General Quintus Gaius, in A Heaven in Hell's Despair by MJLee. (Or start with the first story, Pilgrim Soul.)[2]
