Fanfic: The Siege of Shelim Oasis

Secret Santa fanfic for stealingpennies for the primeval_denial secret santa exchange.

I know you like historical/pseudo-historical AUs, so I tried something a little... different. Please excuse any errors in historical detail, or, for that matter, *lack* of historical detail!

Also, the word count sort of... got away from me. In my defense I was *aiming* for about 4k. I think it's safe to say I missed...
