Gladiator, 2 recs, Lucilla/Maximus

Fandom: Gladiator
Pairing: Lucilla/Maximus
Fic Title: Remind Him
Author: Zara Hemla
Link: http://if.sweetdarkness.net/?p=60
Rating/Warning(s): PG13
Genre: Drama
WIP? No
Special Rec: 29/30

Why This Must Be Read: Set before the movie, this is a beautiful and bittersweet look at Lucilla and Maximus' relationship and how it evolved into the one seen later on screen. The language and dialogue echoes the movie wonderfully while the characterisations (particularly Lucilla's) are heartbreaking and perfect.





Fandom: Gladiator

Fic Title: Sometimes the Heart
Author: Seema

Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 30/30

Why This Must Be Read: Another look at Maximus and Lucilla's history together, with great dialogue and descriptions to carry the story, and a romance that is bittersweet and lovely in equal turns. These two may not have had a happy ending, but there was moments of light before then.
