    Summary

    Richard is attempting to make a new life for himself in San Francisco when he receives the call from Priscilla telling him that Francis has attempted suicide for the second time. At a loss, she begs Richard to take her husband in. Problem one: Richard has never quite gotten over that kiss in his dorm room, and neither has Francis. Problem two: Richard is already caught up in an abusive relationship with another man.

    Summary

    Richard reminisces how him and Francis became close after Henry's passing. He values their friendship, but it seems that Francis has a different outlook to their relationship.

    ---

    Had I not known Francis was a hypohondriac, I would have been seriously concerned, but hearing his voice, and being tempted with seeing my friend again, were what influenced me to agree to meet Francis. Of course he did not suffer from diabetes, as all five doctors we visited explained, but commuting from clinics to hospitals had brought us closer than we had ever been. Perhaps the irregular visits and Francis needing a permanent place to stay was what brought us together and what helped us to set our sights on a two-bedroomed middle class house in the neighbourhood Henry had once lived in.

    Summary

    A collection of stories for The Secret History. Based around the continuing idea of a relationship forming between Henry and the Reader. Also just the Reader interacting with the whole TSH squad. There will be Francis/Richard. These fics take place in my AU where there was no murder and everything's great. The 5 are just high class losers who study Classics, unfortunately you do not dear Reader but they still like you anyway.

    Summary

    For all my faults — many, no doubt, if the breadth of my father’s criticism was anything to go by — I would not call myself unobservant in matters of human nature.

    Summary

    Richard studies the pottery in the Japanese selection carefully. The placard reads Kintsugi and the pots are veined with lines of gold. Some of them are so veiny that Richard thinks momentarily of the light angel veins around one’s heart. He wonders if these pots are living breathing things.

    He does not know why he is reminded of Henry when he studies the pottery.

    Summary

    liberosis. n. the desire to care less about things.

    Francis isn't sure why he expected things to end any differently between him and Charles tonight. Or maybe he didn't, and at this point he's just so desperate that he's willing to pretend.

    Summary

    Richard liked to believe that it wasn’t some sort of unexamined bigotry that made the current position so awkward. Francis was gay, he knew that. Everyone knew that. And Francis had flirted in the past, made slight, ever so subtle advances that had instantly been dropped the moment he realized Richard was uncomfortable with them.

    He would have felt uncomfortable about this particular situation with anyone, Richard told himself, male or female or anything else.

    In the middle of the night during a terrible storm, Richard receives a visitor.

    Summary

    Camilla walks to the sink and holds her still bleeding hand over it. She doesn’t have the energy to open a tap— doesn’t have the energy to stand, really, but Francis is rummaging inside a cupboard for a first aid kit and it seems civil not to drip blood all over his carpet.
