The consort is more than a little taken aback when his owner gambles with a stranger–an artifact of the Ancestors against a night with the consort–and the stranger wins. But he cannot dishonor his owner, so he goes to the stranger’s room.
Why You Should Read This:
I’d forgotten about this gem, one of my favorite SGA stories. The author used elements of The Game Players of Titan by Philip K. Dick to create an interesting (if not very nice) society. The story is well written, especially the sex scenes.
Rodney is just plain wonderful in this, smart and vicious. His desperate desire to free an amnesiac!John requires a drastic plan that is completely and utterly Rodney.

Ianto stumbles into a transportation device and is taken to a world where slavery is the norm. Jack goes after him, but finds him already up for sale.
Why You Should Read This:
Jack has to prove that Ianto is his property, but since he doesn’t have the “papers” he has to have sex with him in public. Ianto is not amused.
Warning: the consent issues here are real. If you are easily squicked by such, you shouldn’t read this. This is two men in a bad situation trying to deal as best they can. Ianto is understandably pretty freaked and this is not how Jack was envisioning his first time with Ianto.

Summary: Marcus Aquila is an undercover Metropolitan police officer. His assignment is to infiltrate a slave-trafficking organisation which trades in men, bought and sold to fight in cages, sometimes to the death. When he makes the impulsive decision to intervene during a ‘kill fight’ involving a fierce young fighter called Esca, Marcus inadvertently finds himself the owner of his very own slave. Now Marcus has to find a way to complete his assignment, as well as gaining Esca’s trust, without blowing his cover. The question is, can he do it before the secrets and lies catch up with him, and Marcus loses everything?
Why You Should Read This: Even if you have never heard/seen/read The Eagle of the Ninth or know of this pairing, check out this fanfiction. It needs to be made into its own movie. Gritty, detailed and realistic viewpoint you can not help but have pom poms in your hands, cheering for Marcus as he tries to do the right thing as an undercover cop while slowly realisation his attraction to Esca goes far deeper than lust. Esca, recovered from the gladiator ring, begins climbing an emotional mountain range of feelings yet can he trust the man who saved him? It’s one of stories that I keep going back to each year because it is so awesome!
