So I wrote Esca/Placidus for the_eagle_kink , and now I feel like I have to explain myself. The fic in question, Rubicon, is posted on my livejournal here as well as at the comm journal. Read my essay on the subject:' Crossing the Rubicon, or How I Made My Beta Reader Question Both my Morals and my Sanity: a rant on the eagle of the ninth, slash fan fiction and one fic in particular.' below. Warning: contains discussion of sexual themes and spoilers for both the book and the movie. I'd love to hear the thoughts of other readers and fans on this topic!
( Slashing Esca and Marcus is like shooting fish in a barrel... )
