    Summary

    “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

    “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

    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

    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

    "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?"
