    Summary

    I know it's not Christmas anymore, but I didn't manage to get this finished in time so HERE IT IS in January! This is just super fluffy romantic/family Christmas fun, in which David spends Christmas with the Scripps', and Don finally comes out to his parents. Very minor content warnings for mentions of depression, suicide attempt and medication (all only mentioned very briefly in one paragraph), as well as a reference to HIV/AIDS, a couple of sex references, and some slight parental confusion about the concept of bisexuality. Enjoy!

    Summary

    It's almost like the run-in with Dakin made him regress to the man he used to be when he was teaching at Cutler's, opening up old insecurities and half-forgotten longing like wounds that have never quite healed.

    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.
    (Updates are sporadic, give a uni student some leeway!)

    "I want to get it over with.”

    “‘Get it over with’? Scripps, you sound like you're going for an injection, not like you're about to get fucked.”

    Summary

    “Five years. Bloody hell.”

    “Yeah,” Tony murmurs. “Five years.”

    The headstone at their feet doesn’t seem to have weathered, dates as harsh against the granite as they were last year, and the year before that, and the one before that—He shakes his head. Too long yet not long enough for grief to have passed by.

    Summary

    David and Don navigate the choppy waters of the everyday. This is probably the angstiest thing I've written since I was 16, and the sex reference-iest since ever. Please accept this very short, semi-poetic offering.

    Summary

    Scripps and Posner search for meaning in their life after sixth form, and end up finding each other.

    Burning slow, from uni to beyond.
    Triggers for individual chapters will be specified in the notes, and each chapter is named after a song by The Smiths (with accompanying lyrics at the beginning).
    Happy to take constructive criticism.
    This is my first fic of any real length. Please be nice to me.

    Summary

    Short angsty thingy about Posner's breakdown. The two chapters are intended to be complementary companion pieces, with chapter 1 Pos-centric and chapter 2 Scripps-centric, so it's both of their POVs on it all? Rated M for dark themes, idk how the rating or tagging works.

    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.
