Surrender on Both Sides by Seascribe (R)

Pairing/Characters: Esca/Marcus
Length: 2126
Author on LJ: [ profile] seascribe
Author's Website: AO3
Why this must be read:

Language and the role it can play in a fic, especially in a fandom like The Eagle where the native language of the two main characters is not the same is something I've always found fascinating.  And in this fic, the author does a fantastic job of using language and illustrating the conflict that can arise from it.  For Esca, Latin was something that reminded him of being a slave and he struggles to find peace with hearing Marcus use it when they are together.  But this fic is so much more than exploring the barriers caused by language, it's also a sweet story about love and acceptance.
