    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

    Scripps had nothing against London, nothing against the grey mornings when his alarm clock failed to wake him up and fog tried to swallow him whole as he dashed toward the nearby underground station. All in all, he was fairly pleased with the course his life had decided to take. And yet he didn't stop to think twice when Dakin sent him a telegraph and told him to pack his bags, book a boat ticket and start a new life.

    Summary

    This was written for Von five and a half years ago and I've just decided to move it over from LJ to here so it can find a new audience. It was supposed to be porny but it got feelings. I still like it. It's a retrospective look at Dakin and Scripps' relationship over the course of at least twenty years.

    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

    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

    All girls grow up someday.

    Scripps and Posner, from school through Oxford and beyond.

    -

    Scripps is observant, so it isn’t as if she doesn’t know about Posner and girls before the infatuation with Dakin. She thinks if she’d only paid better attention, she would have noticed sooner. Not so much about the girls perhaps, but at least about the lack of boys.

    Summary

    Dakin never told the boys that he and Posner had sex in the locker room on the last day of class. It didn't mean anything and thus didn't really matter anyway. Posner didn't tell anyone either, but that was to be expected.

    Summary

    "Well, to tell you the truth, food isn’t on the menu for the time being. I think you knew that though. Otherwise, you’d have just stayed home with your notes for an upcoming episode of your damn telly show.”

    Or in other words, Dakin finally bites the bullet and finds Irwin. In a chat room. In 2006.

    Summary

    Posner is a dancer and looks the part. She’s lithe, like in the Grecian myths, and has long hair she used to plait, or do up in a bun. Nowadays, it’s mostly some haphazard pins holding it all back from her small face.
