|I come with fic!
||[Nov. 6th, 2009|01:20 pm]
Salvete all! I can't believe I didn't join this comm sooner. I've been a huge fan of the books, mini-series, and Roman history in general for years- my Classics degree may attest to that! God knows I ramble on about it in my LJ often enough. So, now that I'm here, I thought it would be a good idea to share the fic I wrote for this year's femgenficathon. After all, there is not nearly enough I, Claudius fanfiction in the world.
Title: Mater Familias
Characters: Antonia, Claudius, Aelia, and Livilla (who is an off-screen presence, for obvious reasons)
Rating: PG-13, for canon character death
Word Count: 2,820
Disclaimer: Not mine. But then, these were all real people, so technically they didn't belong to Robert Graves either. However, it's his characterization, so he gets the credit, along with the BBC and all the lovely people involved in creating my favorite mini-series of all time ever.
Summary: Antonia executes her daughter, and tries to live with her disappointing son.
Author's Notes: The first few lines of dialogue have been stolen directly from Episode 8: Reign of Terror, from right after the fall of Sejanus. Many thanks to dbassassin for beta-reading.
