A white wolf, roses, and the text: Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia Feb. 13-15 / A Multi-Fandom Mini-Fest

Come create Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia - A Multi-Fandom Mini-Fest, February Thirteenth through Fifteenth!

Very relevant for many Sutcliff canons and for Sutcliff fandom in general!

Bullet points from the fest post:

- Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia is now in its sixth year of howling at the moon.

- Lupercalia is a classical Roman festival that took place around the Ides of February (Feb. 13-15th) celebrating fertility and the wolf who was the symbolic mother of Rome's founder.

- In the source canon (A Companion to Wolves), the wolves communicate their emotions with their bonded humans and the humans who are bonded to wolves in the same pack, up to and including causing them to have sex with each other. You don't have to read a specific book to write your own take on psychic wolves.

- If you're writing a story, aim for about 500 words. Ideally, there should be wolves in it. They should be psychic. They should at least have the potential of causing sympathetic lust in the humans, elves, or other species they're bonded to.

Check out the stories from Sutcliff fandom created for Lupercalia so far in this post. And remember: anything goes as long as you're having wolfy fun!

Rosemary Sutcliff haul from Yuletide 2016! Fanworks were created for Frontier Wolf (novel) and Eagle of the Ninth (novel) / The Eagle (movie). Merry reading and joyous holidays!

Note that we feature the rec link with trope highlights for your enjoyment and enticement.

Frontier Wolf:

on principle, not chance, Alexios/Hilarion, developing relationship (Soon, the year’s longest night would choke the last vestiges of warmth from both land and men. The numerus, sequestered in the easternmost fort of Gallia Belgica, was barely a hundred miles from the frontier that had brought legions to their knees.)

The Eagle of the Ninth:

Shelter, Marcus/Esca, cave snuggling (While evading the Seal People, Marcus and Esca sleep in a small cave for the night.)
Parsimonia, Diligentia, Iustitia, Marcus/Esca, domestic pining (Esca lets his mind wander to their future, to bright days spent in the field at Marcus’ side and tired evenings at the fireside with Cub drowsing at their feet, and eventually, his little herd of horses grazing the slopes of their home.)
Murder in Barbarikon, Marcus/Esca, fake dating & murder mystery (Marcus and Esca travel to 2nd-century Pakistan as escorts on a trade mission. When a murder is discovered, they must expose the killer in a city where they can trust no one but each other.)
Do mechanics dream of steam-powered sheep?, Marcus/Esca, steampunk (His uncle said, beaming, “Marcus, a gentleman is here to enquire about your horses.”)

Dear Sutcliff community members,

It is always a joy when something new and exciting and relevant to our interests happens, and, considering that The Eagle film was released five years ago, new fanvids have become a rare treat.

Which is why it is so pleasant to see vidders taking an interest in the Eagle of the Ninth story, with this lovely vid posted in September 2016:

Marcus & Esca | The Eagle: I didn't want you to leave me by Oeufs at YT

Other existing fanvids for The Eagle (2011) include:

You Don't Belong to Me by destina
An Toll Dubh by legoline
Mykonos by talitha78
Dangerous by merlenhiver
put your hands into the fire by Akarai92

Let's add to the list together!

Please comment on this post and share your impressions - this is the space to share links and enthusiastic descriptions of your favourite fanvids, give recs and talk meta about vidding in general.

Happy watching and pleasant talking!

Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia is a multifandom minifest running February thirteenth through fifteenth. Come create Sutcliff fanworks with companion animals and sympathetic lust!

A white wolf, a pink heart, and the text: Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia - A Multi-Fandom Mini-Fest, February Thirteenth through Fifteenth

Briefly about the fest:

In the vein of A Companion to Wolves and similar epic fantasy, this is a fanwork challenge in which various characters are bonded to wolves. These wolves may be used in the Companion-verse manner, as warriors in the fight against trolls, or in more modern-day applications such as K-9 units of police forces, service animals for disabled characters, or any other application you can think of for psychic wolves. In the source canon, the wolves communicate their emotions with their bonded humans and the humans who are bonded to wolves in the same pack, up to and including causing them to have sex with each other. You don't have to read a specific book to write your own take on psychic wolves. Ideally, there should be wolves in it. They should be psychic. They should at least have the potential of causing sympathetic lust in the other species they're bonded to. Complete information here.


This fest is an opportunity to explore a plot device which meshes really well with wildly different settings and can be used for very different metaphorical meanings. Earlier (Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia is in its fifth year), four works in different Sutcliff fandoms were created:

Chosen by [profile] demon_rum (Eagle of the Ninth)
Pack Dynamics by [profile] demon_rum (Eagle of the Ninth)
The Wolf With No Name by [personal profile] sistermine (Eagle of the Ninth)
The Fond-Name by [personal profile] sineala (Frontier Wolf)


So, come create for Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia - A Multi-Fandom Mini-Fest, February Thirteenth through Fifteenth! And you are welcome to brainstorm and discuss your ideas in comments to this post in [community profile] sutcliff_space.
