    Summary

    Esca, son of Cunoval, has known from childhood how his life will be. When he first feels the soulbond in his mind, he will be made a man of the Brigantes. He will be inked. He will become a warrior. In a few years, his soulmate will come in search of him from a neighboring clan. His soulmate will be proud of him, proud that Esca is heir to a clan chieftain, proud that Esca will one day be lord of five hundred spears. They will marry. They will lead the clan together. It will be a good life.

    Then Esca discovers his soulmate is a Roman soldier. This is, shall we say, problematic.

    Summary

    The merchant, Gnaeus, who had sold Marcus this property, had spoken of a solid main building, of well-kept pens and fertile soil, all newly abandoned by deceitful tenants and only cheap because he was tired of the whole business and wanted the land off his hands for good. He had talked of neighbours and a village nearby with opportunities of trade, but he had entirely failed to mention that the house lay deep in tribal country.

    Summary

    For all Holmes might make fun of my writing, it’s become our custom, over the years, that he should be my first reader. This arrangement has proven agreeable for many reasons: firstly it is practical, as it allows him in the event of a slipup on my part — a name I ought to change or a conversation which ought to remain unrecorded —, to warn me of my oversight and correct it; secondly it pleases him, as he is a peacock first and man second, and he revels in my constant attention.

     

    Watson shows Holmes a very, very early draft.

    Summary

    I say, "Ask me anything, Spock," for perhaps the fifth time.

    This time, you respond, your gaze bright and penetrating, "Perhaps you could satisfy my curiosity in--one particular."

    "Of course," I say enthusiastically.

    You seem perfectly calm as you ask, "How long have we been lovers?" And I am certain I have heard you correctly, even as I struggle not to allow my astonishment to show on my face.
