Hands by Sineala (PG-13)

Fandom: THE EAGLE
Pairing/Characters: Esca/Marcus
Length: 1401
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] sineala
Author's Website: AO3
Why this must be read:

I don't know if there is anyone more prolific in The Eagle fandom than [livejournal.com profile] sineala.  But even more so, it's her eye for details and wonderful characterization that elevates her stories as among the best.  It was difficult to figure out which one of her stories I wanted to rec from the epic Chosen Man to the one that features one of my favorite tropes soulbonds, Children of the Sun.

In the end, I chose this fic as my last rec because I love pining and I loved how much such a simple gesture could evoke so much for Esca.  The way Romans touch each other is something Esca never wants for himself until he meets Marcus and there's a quiet beauty in how Esca starts to pine for Marcus to touch him the same way.  It's a lovely fic that follows along canon and so much is expressed in so few words.


Hands

I didn't have time to rec as much as I would've liked but this covers my last time reccing here on [livejournal.com profile] crack_van.  Thank you for the memories and the joy, it's been an honor and a pleasure to rec here.  You'll be missed.
