    Summary

    This was written for Von five and a half years ago and I've just decided to move it over from LJ to here so it can find a new audience. It was supposed to be porny but it got feelings. I still like it. It's a retrospective look at Dakin and Scripps' relationship over the course of at least twenty years.

    Summary

    "I've got the rest of the summer left before I need to start having good ideas," he says, and takes another drink. "Think of it as a favour. You're helping me get all the recklessness of my youth over and done with before I go."

    Waiting for summer to end and life to begin, Dakin passes the time.

    Summary

    If it had been fiction, Dakin would have died. (The Turn of the Screw.) If it had been fiction, perhaps Irwin himself would have copped it. (Death in Venice.) Neither happened, of course. Irwin had survived, as argumentative and desire-tormented as ever, which proved that literature offered only the vaguest of guides to human affairs.

    Summary

    Dakin was a long way from school and even university but sometimes, on quiet afternoons in the office or long nights without sleep when the baby was crying, he found pieces of lessons drifting back to him. Poetry and plays and Irwin's “gobbets” but most of all Hector's lessons on history in the subjunctive.

    Summary

    All girls grow up someday.

    Scripps and Posner, from school through Oxford and beyond.

    -

    Scripps is observant, so it isn’t as if she doesn’t know about Posner and girls before the infatuation with Dakin. She thinks if she’d only paid better attention, she would have noticed sooner. Not so much about the girls perhaps, but at least about the lack of boys.

    Summary

    Dakin never told the boys that he and Posner had sex in the locker room on the last day of class. It didn't mean anything and thus didn't really matter anyway. Posner didn't tell anyone either, but that was to be expected.
