AU where Geno and the pens are part of a secret organization that time travels to maintain the flow of historic events, and on one mission, Geno is tasked to go back to the 1820s to save a man (whose great-great grandson will eventually be key to a medical breakthrough that will change history) from a freak accident involving a horse carriage gone rogue.

To a planet called Ares,
with expanses of red sands
and water that runs red and brown
like the blood of its people,
with jagged red rocks
that protrude from the landscape.
A grim people would live here,
a people who are strong and severe.
On a planet called Ares,
where survival of the fittest
is the rule of the day.
To be king for a day,
is to be a God in this world,
where the rule of fist and might
is the dominion of this planet.
Are you an Ares, a God of War,
are you as austere as Spartans
to survive in this land?
