    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.

    Lockwood's funeral makes Dakin look at his life a little differently. 'There were destructive relationships and loves in this world far greater than the lamentable ballad of Irwin and Dakin.'

    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?"

    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

    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

    But Irwin isn’t like that. Irwin isn’t easy, he isn’t easily charmed, he isn’t easy in any shape or form.

    And halfway through that drink, Dakin decides it isn’t worth it anyway. Irwin isn’t worth it Whatever it was that made him lose his mind back in the day, it’s disappeared now. So he makes inane conversation, cracks a few unremarkable jokes just to see if it’ll make things different.
