Fandom/Canon Name: Did You Like The Battle, Sir? - Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar.
What's awesome about it: It's a song written by a folk singer called Bev Pegg in the 1970s. Whether he knew it or not (I'm not sure), it's one of the most hurt/comforty slashy songs I could imagine. It's sung from the point of view of someone who's a civilian, comforting the officer of an army, who is both personally wounded and leading the remains of his troops away from a battle that it seems likely he has lost. There's a lovely ambiguity about which side the singer character is on.
Greg Russell and Ciaran Algar are one of the fastest rising acts on the UK folk scene, and Greg's delivery gives the song a contemporary edge and relevance.
It's not a song about a real, specific, battle... and so there's a whole range of possibilities for fic.
