I want something good to die for
To make it beautiful to live
I want a new mistake
To lose is more than hesitate
Do you believe it in your head?

Let me love you and your perfect commentary.
If my only contribution to the fandom is writing obscenity-laced, tawdry commentary insinuating that everyone is a total horndog, then my job here is done.
Okay, how about Melitta and Nasir?
I’m not sure if she really loved Gannicus. She cared for him, obviously, and had feelings for him, but love? I don’t think she really knew. She had never thought of him as anything other than Gannicus, her husband’s closest friend, until they were forced to have sex with each other for show. After that, the door was opened, and of course she was curious. Gannicus was completely different from Oenomaus, and inspired feelings she had never felt before, feelings that she tried to resist but ultimately had to explore. I’m willing to bet that if you were able to talk to her in the Afterlife, she would tell you that her death was punishment from the Gods for daring to explore that curiosity.
Nasir (my precious Syrian hissing big-balled wild dog)
Nasir has always desired men. He did not desire the men he was forced to lay with, and certainly did not desire his dominus, but there were times in which he caught himself staring a little too long at other men. There were even times when he was forced to lay with a man and liked it somewhat. It was always empty, for he hadn’t been able to make the choice to be with them, but he could never really figure out why. Agron is not the first man he’s been attracted to, but Agron is the first man he’s ever really desired.
Agron's FACE after that, though. He's like, "Okay, I apologize for my embarrassing friend, he's good in a fight, I promise."
Monuments should be made in honor of Agron’s face. Instead of Mt. Rushmore, it can be titled Mt. Agron Faces because he has the best faces of all time. ALL TIME.
I like your Donar feels, though. He's such a bro, I love it.
He really is. Best bro in the Republic. Just be sure to throw some whores his way, and he’s down for whatever.
OH SHIT I DON’T HAVE A LOT OF DONAR FEELS BUT I WILL TRY TO COME UP WITH SOME.
Donar could really take or leave the majority of the army. It’s not that he hates everyone else, they just don’t register to him. Sure, he thinks Crixus is an asshole, and he likes Spartacus just fine, but he doesn’t stay out of loyalty to them. He stays for three reasons; because he believes that men should be free, because he really likes a good fight, and because of Agron. Which he won’t admit to when asked, but he feels a kinship to Agron that goes beyond shared country.
Give me some Naevia headcanon because bb.
1. Everyone thinks that she is haunted by what happened to her after Lucretia sold her. This is partially true. She is also haunted by Diona’s face in the arena, and how alike they are now. In a bittersweet way, they are now sisters again who can share their life experiences.
2. Sometimes fighting Crixus is more pleasurable than having sex with him.
3. She takes one of Ashur’s rings after he falls, grabs some twine, and wears it as a necklace. It is a trophy, and soon many others will join it until it becomes a monument.
Okay so first up, you are a goddess divine and let me thank you wholeheartedly for reccing so many of my fics. I was doing that weird thing where you make fists and press them really hard into your face because your compliments DID NOT END. Also if you haven't read Journeyman in AO3, you should do so and then rec it because it is the magnum fucking opus of Barca/Pietros fic. aeternium out. <3
You don’t have to thank me at all, your fics give me life. I don’t recall reading Journeyman, but I’m about to go do that RIGHT NOW. Thank you for the rec, and thank you for writing beautiful stories about the most perfect ship in the OTP Sea.
