Summary: Stagira Magni, a wealthy Roman widow, is being formally courted by an older suitor. However, she is unknowingly wooed by a female gladiator, who is powerful, beautiful, and a rumored demi-god. Stagira is determined to find out more about the mysterious gladiator despite the risk it may pose to Stagira.

AN: This is a different kind of TSCC story that uses TSCC essentials. It is similar to an uber (if you're not familiar with "uber" then please Google: "uber lunacy what" or/and "uber whoosh what" to find out more) but not a true uber variant. This TSCC is set in Ancient Rome around the days of the Roman Empire (100 BC). In this case, Cameron is true to herself, however, Sarah is depicted in an uber variation known as Stagira Magni. I also promise some history terms because I'm such an history nut. :) Please enjoy something slightly outside the normal TSCC fandom.

Fanfiction Notes: Uber TSCC - Ancient Rome. One Shot. Femslash - Cameron/Stagira.

Lost in the Past

by Red Hope


The tall yet lean woman remained knelt in the center of a charred circle. All around her smoke twisted in the air and rose upwards to the star lit sky. A last lightning bolt jumped around her then it all went eerily silent in the forest. After a long moment, the woman stood up and exposed her nude form to the chilly night, but she seemed unaffected by it.

She did a slow visual scan of her immediate location and a flicker of concern showed on her face before she hardened again. She marched out of the circle and through the dark forest with such ease. She seemed in search of something as she tightly clenched her hands at her side. Just ahead, she saw distant, yellow light that flickered beyond the forest so she walked faster, with determination. Finally, she escaped the dense forest and stood still on a ridge that overlooked a village nestled in a valley.

The woman tilted her head and oddly stared at the village below her. She now lifted her crisp mahogany eyes to the night sky that was clear of any clouds. She observed the stars for awhile until she seemed to find an answer from them. However, it wasn't an answer she wanted because she was overwhelmed and angrily whispered, "This cannot be right." But her logic reminded her that the stars never lied.

To be continued.
