So I of late was involved in two fic exchanges. The first, [community profile] not_primetime, I ultimately pulled out of because real life took up way more time than I expected. The second, [community profile] history_exchange, I managed to get my act together and complete before the deadline. However, apparently defaulting does not stop you receiving a gift fic! (I did not know this. I had never done it before.) So I have now three delightful fics to read over a thousand times and enjoy deeply.

So, I present to you, this absolute treasure, which is everything a person could possibly want from their weird cyberpunk Roman Republic RPF fic. I will keep these tabs open till the day I die. I don't know what to say. This is a delightful buddy cop gangster romp featuring Gaius Gracchus and the ghost of his murdered brother, and basically, when Cicero wrote about that time the ghost of Tiberius Gracchus appeared to Gaius, I bet he wishes this is what he claimed happened.

And, doubleplusgood, it comes with a prequel about the Gracchi's grandfather, Scipio Africanus, and his star-crossed romance with Hannibal Barca, and basically this is going way up there on the list of best gift fics I have ever received.

Thirdly, I received this perfect gem, which is as awkward and emotionally charged and tense as a reunion between Sirius Black and his surprisingly-not-dead younger brother ought to be, and the only thing I could possibly want out of this fic that I didn't get is more of it.

Dear Writer,

You are a precious treasure of a human being - not only do you want to write historical RPF, but you are willing to write it to my specifications (at least, to some extent - I am very much an "optional details are optional" person). Don't stress too much about anything - whatever you write me I will love.

I don't have any triggers you should be worrying about. I'd ask that you avoid incest, but that's pretty much it. (Usually at this point I'd add soulmates and A/B/O AUs to my DNWs, but then I pictured some of these people in that kind of universe, and it deeply amused me, so go ahead.)

I really like AUs. Every AU. Any AU. Alternate worlds, one-single-change-wreaks-vast-repercussions AUs, crossover AUs. I’ve occasionally put suggestions for AUs under specific categories, but don’t feel like they’re comprehensive lists. I am literally always up for an AU, no matter how weird and far removed from the source you think it is. Seriously. Go to town on this, if it’s your kind of thing.

Dear Writer Friend,
 
First, thank you for being my recipient, and being excited to write the same sorts of things that I am excited to read. Consider this letter as a list of suggestions, rather than anything stronger - optional details are most definitely optional, and if my requested characters are involved, I will be happy!

Most of all, you are the best, friend! I'm sure I'll love whatever you produce.
