    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

    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.

    Summary

    'Marriage had never been on his cards, but neither had breaking up with his girlfriend before dating his ex-teacher while studying at Oxford.'
    In which Dakin's insecurities show, loose ends are tied up, and the lives of the Oxbridge eight move on. Or, we get the ending we deserved.
    (For Antonio, who was the engine behind this angst-train.)

    Summary

    "He, in the darkest corner of the pub, hands wrapped around a pen and a pint, listened to Dakin moan about the next essay, the next woman, the next step. Then there was a stutter, a stop, and he looked up at Dakin who gazed back with a calculating expression. Then there was a smirk, and Scripps felt his blood run cold. He knew that face."
