Author has written 42 stories for Eagle, 2011, Les Misérables, Les Miserables, Star Wars, Song of the Lioness, and Roméo et Juliette, de la Haine à l'Amour.

I am no longer posting regularly at Fanfiction.net, aside from a few of my non-sexually explicit The Eagle (2011) stories and, apparently, Les Misérables stories. Old stories, new stories in assorted fandoms, and sexually explicit stories can be found at Archive of Our Own (username Carmarthen) or Livejournal (username carmarthen). Eagle and Eagle of the Ninth fans may also want to check out the ninth_eagle community on Livejournal, where there is a lot of fic and art by a lot of people.

best befits the dark reviews
[Hungarian Operettszínház production as canon] "Romeo dreams airy dreams, as Mercutio dances and flirts with fire, and Benvolio is only poor, simple earth, loyal and steady, at once caught between them and too plain for either of them to truly notice." A coda to the kiss-chase scene after the Capulet ball. Mercutio/Benvolio, but everyone is in love with Romeo.

Life reviews
[Eagle of the Ninth bookverse] Esca has always been able to see Death. (Sort of a crossover with the musical Elisabeth, but only insofar as I had that particular anthropomorphic personification of death in mind; canon knowledge not required.)

by some vile forfeit of untimely death
[Hungarian Operettszínház production as canon] When Julia almost dies of the scarlet fever, young Tybalt makes a bargain with Death. It doesn't go quite how he hoped it would. This is technically a crossover with Elisabeth (also Hungarian production), but you don't really need to know canon.

[Mostly bookverse, handwaved timeline] Javert finds that presenting a neat appearance is irritatingly difficult when one has broken two fingers.

[Les Miserables book/Star Wars fusion AU] In which Montparnasse jumps an old man on the middle levels of Coruscant and gets more than he bargained for; Valjean has latent Jedi mind powers; and Jedi Knight Javert is obsessed with justice and/or Valjean. An extremely cracky fusion AU remix of Les Miz 4.4.2, plus that scene with Obi-Wan in the bar in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.

[Eagle of the Ninth bookverse] Guinhumara cannot quite let herself like her husband's new friend. Gen with implied canon Guinhumara/Cradoc (Cradoc, for movie fans, is the druid's charioteer, and in the book, Marcus's friend. Sort of.)

Traitor or True reviews
It is not that Cunomor, Prince of the Seal People, wants to kill his only son: it is that he can see no other way. Warning: This story is not more graphically violent than the movie, but it is entirely about a father murdering his child, so I erred on the side of a higher rating.

Six years later, on their way to visit Cottia's mother, Cottia and Esca see the White Horse of Lubrinium, and Cottia tells Esca a story of the Iceni, long ago, before the Romans came to Britain. Sort of a crossover with Sutcliff's Sun Horse, Moon Horse. Gen.
