    Summary

    “It’s going to work this time.” Since Charles has said this every time, and Francis more than once, and even Bunny on one unusually determined occasion, he doesn’t expect anybody to pay much attention to him - he’s telling himself, really. It’s become part of the ritual for him, a sort of pointless pep talk to stop himself actually thinking about what they’re trying to do. (And it generally irritates Henry intensely, which sometimes seems like a good enough reason for doing things in itself.) This time, though, Camilla surprises everyone by saying, “Yes. I think it is.”

    The day that comes before the night of the Bacchanal, and a few stray memories, through the mad eyes of my four favourite deerslayers.

    Summary

    She rips the paper frock-pretences she pinned on him off, in the dark - wonders if it would reveal her brother whole. The paper tears, and she bleeds, and he sucks the blood of her fingers, like a dog licking a wound. She wonders if she can rid him of her pretences entirely. She wonders if she can rid him of her so she would see him.

    Summary

    “I want you to realize that I don’t owe you anything, alright? I don’t have to give you peace, whatever the hell that means, but you’ve got me here, and there’s nowhere else for either of us to go, so ask. What do you want to know, Charles? What do you want from me?”

    Summary

    Sometimes when the memories became too much, when Richard could feel the metaphorical blood on his hands (out, damned spot), he would seek out Francis, an antidote to guilt--at least for the moment.

    Summary

    "Part of him wondered if he was never destined for contentment, if it simply wasn't in his nature to be whole. Because he certainly wasn't, he was fractured and cracked and chipped and every now and then another little bit fell away. He was eroding."

    Summary

    “Yes. …Well,” he amended, “as fine as it’s possible to be, given the circumstances.” His toes curled into the sheet, and I found myself staring at them dumbly, knocked off-balance when he spoke again, his voice higher than it normally was; tremulous, childish. “Do you suppose it hurt at all?”
