Word count: ~57k
Warnings: Explicit sex; language; (some) homophobic hate speech; reference to self harm; some (brief) violence
Acknowledgements: The story was written for this prompt by the lovely lalazee on the the_eagle_kink: Marcus and Esca both attend an all-boys school, and are a part of the Dead Poet's Society with several of their other friends. What starts out as simply reading poetry and 'sucking the marrow out of life' turns into accidentally locking eyes while reading poetry, turns into their writing their own poetry... secretly about each other. Turns into some very beautiful complications.
