Dead Poets' Society / The Eagle crossover fic

Hi Guys - I wrote this crossover fic with the characters from 'The Eagle', so I thought it might be worth cross-posting here - hope that's OK! I'm pretty new to LJ and fanfic, so hope this isn't any sort of etiquette violation - if so, my apologies. A lot of the supporting characters are sort of a mash-up between the two films, and obviously the concept, and some of the plot is from DPS.

Title: Odi et Amo (link to first part; all seven parts are up on my livejournal)
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Esca/Marcus (very slashy)
Summary: Esca and Marcus are at an all boys boarding school in the UK in the 1970s. They hate each other, until they both become members of the newly formed Dead Poets' Society... Adolescent ardor follows.
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.
