Title: The passing of winter
Genre: Angst, romance
Summary: Originally written for a prompt on the_eagle_kink before I went back and rewrote it: So Marcus and Esca settle down as Happy Gay Farmers, but one day Marcus hears someone who is/was a member of the Brigantes insult Esca for betraying his people by basically becoming a whore to a Roman and make all sorts of horrible comments about how Esca's father and family would be ashamed etc,. I just want Marcus' reaction, some anger and maybe guilt and then Esca shrugging it off and being like 'my family would be happy that I'm happy' or 'even though you're a Roman you're not like the others'
Warnings: None, apart from sappiness
A/N: I didn't like the abrupt ending of the original version, so I went back to fix that and backstory happened. And it got extra sap. Sorry about that
Gaelic translations are at the end.
