    “Come on,” says Dakin, smirking. “You can expose facts that aren’t generally taught in the history classes, provide a different perspective. We all know how much you love that.”

    Summary

    “You never used to say his name before.”

    “He was a threat before,” Scripps replies, rather more bluntly than he means to. “Given he got his arse kicked by a baby there suddenly seems less of a possibility that him or his maniac followers are going to kill someone I care about.”

    Posner fixes him with an odd look for a moment, and Scripps wonders if he knows just how worried he’d been for his safety, how often he’d been thinking of him instead of his summer reading, how awful it’d been hearing of an attack but not knowing yet if he was safe.

    Irwin/Posner friendship is something I never knew I wanted.

    Summary

    Backstory, forwardstory, and a little subjunctive storytelling. | Dakin lends Posner a Smiths tape and gets treated as though he invented Morrissey. (Although, Posner listens to Ella Fitzgerald, so one assumes he has to be desperately longing for some real culture.) He messes Posner's hair as though he were a little brother, and practically sees his heart flutter. The world may adore him because he's handsome and acts like a total cock, but behind all this shirtlifting nonsense Posner seems to be ridiculously genuine, and Dakin wonders why no-one has ever felt this for him before.

    Summary

    “I often wonder if I’ll ever feel love like that.”

    “You will, Pos,” Scripps replies assuredly, thinking briefly of the name printed under the band of his watch.

    “If I find them, that is,” he smiles demurely, expression slipping into a frown nonetheless. “I do hope I’m not a horrible disappointment.”

    Summary

    I just needed to write some fluff. Starts angsty, ends disgustingly happy. Plenty of clichés.

     

    “Irwin,” and saying the name again hurt, “You should go, don’t worry about me, you’re probably busy and I’ll be fine on my own. You don’t want to see me again.”

    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

    “Then you know: the truth matters, as a baseline. We’re not writing fiction. The facts are there, most of the time, for you to discover. What you want to do with them, the story you want to tell, which threads to pick out of the tapestry—that’s what makes it history, rather than just the past.”

    Summary

    "Totty--" Dakin starts.

    "Mrs Lintott," Irwin corrects automatically.

    "Mrs Lintott--" Dakin says, imbuing the name with as much faux reverence as he can manage, "told us about crossroad moments once. Do you believe in crossroad moments? Sir?"
