    Summary

    What if Dakin and Irwin really had got together after Hector’s death? Dakin tries to teach History a lesson, but History ends up teaching him.

    History, in its making, runs quietly on as it has always done – the hands of the clock move, things change, they stay the same – but, Dakin has discovered, it is possible to put your foot out and trip History up a little, not enough to make him fall, or to turn round and go the other way, but enough to make him stumble and then carry on.

    Summary

    Where a group which barely missed becoming Historic, are aiming to study history at the most prestigious universities in England. If their 'pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university' doesn't dominate their lives, what else will? There's a new teacher on the staff, and it's not his gap year. But it may as well be. Chaos ensues when staff clash, students swoon, and there's a few dick jokes thrown in too.

    A crossover of sorts between Victor Hugo's Les Miserables and Alan Bennett's The History Boys. Exploring class, religion, sexuality and a smidge of politics in the 1980's - with some french thrown in for good luck.

    Summary

    The boys' Muggle Literature classes become a lot more interesting when notorious mugglephobe Draco Malfoy stumbles in. Hector doesn't seem to mind. Posner minds a lot. Scripps is trying to get over how gorgeous the blonde is. Dakin looks all too pleased with these progressions (when he isn't sneaking off to have long chats with his History of Magic teacher.) Alternatively, the History Boys find out what their patronuses are, and it gets a little melancholy.

    Not properly fanfic but taking this across from LJ. One of those if character 1 and character 4 were in this scenario what would happen type of memes based on questions from my f-list. I liked the tiny Southland bit and might come back to it again.
