I wrote this years ago but never when looking for a comm. to post it on. I hope you guys like it.



In thy name do I sacrifice myself upon the altar.

In thy name do I burn like heathen gods.


Ahmed heard the Northman’s heavy footsteps echo across the deserted hall. He lowered his head into his hands, both joyous and fearful of what may come. He had long given up faith in his defences or defence in his faith. Anything this man asked of him he would give.


In thy name am I grace, divinity and light.

In thy name am I passion, breathtaking and fierce.


Fingers calloused by swordplay lifted his chin. He dare not look up for fear of drowning in those blue eyes. Strong hands brushed back wings of hair that hid his face. A kiss at once tender and chaste burnt through him, washing away his resistance like waves upon the sand.


In thy name am I Antinous, deified by beauty.

In thy name am I Hyacinth, slain by love.


Hands locked in each other. The fall of armour and the whisper of cloth. Fingers tangled in long hair. The musk of skin and sweat. Moans that rent the quiet air. Hearts that beat the fierce rhythm of their passion. The cry of two voices, long and low in their release.


In thy name am I whole and shattered.

In thy name am I made and undone.


His lover embraced him as the night took its hold. Safe in strong arms that in his dreamy haze resembled the wings of his protector. His warrior. His king.

I have a huge smile on my face. Not just because of the content—more below—but that someone is posting their own fic, and it's a rare pairing, and slash, and I freaking love your name. lol.

Okay, the fic—love the lyricism and clear imagery. It's really beautiful; just wish it was longer. Thank you so much for sharing it.

Unfortunately I can't take credit for that icon, but I believe it was [livejournal.com profile] fondued_jicama who made it. She's posted a ton of 13th Warrior icons here.

As for your name, I may be the only one who gets it—I used a reference for one of my fic titles. My affection for this fandom has taken me on international trips and into language classes, so I'm a tad more involved than your average fan. :D

Thank you—mostly I think I'm slightly nuts, and my friends tolerate this with bemusement, but we're all having fun anyway.

Wait...do I know you? *G* What kind of traditional archery? I ask because my (fannish) friend [livejournal.com profile] feochadn does kyudo, and used to do re-enactment stuff with her mom, and enjoys smut… ;)
