Summary: A chance encounter at a quiet roadside inn changes the lives of a Roman general and a young slave.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-17Warning: 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.
