    A very fine, unusual post-canon swerve.

    Warning for Ralph quoting bloody Housman. I was in floods. FLOODS.

    Summary

    A ramshackle trawler for his first command, an unsettlingly attractive sublieutenant, and danger in the fjords of Norway. For Lieutenant Ralph Lanyon it's only the first five months of 1940. But it's not a romantic story.

    And so now, at the age of thirty-one, a good ten years older than most of the debutantes to the world he had entered, Nigel was exploring what London had to offer and, thus far, had been really only an observer, and of course co-conspirator in the endless labyrinthine intrigues of Bim’s romantic affairs.

    This can be appreciated without knowing all the fandoms, and there's nothing cracky about the crossover--it really works.

    Summary

    At this moment, Laurie could feel nothing in himself from which Andrew ought to be protected. With the simplicity which this knowledge made to seem quite natural, he leaned over and kissed him. Even when he had done it he felt no reaction or self-reproach. It was as if it had happened before and they had both remembered.

    Summary

    Seven years on, Ralph and Laurie have found a precarious refuge together in Gibraltar. But in the post-War world attitudes are hardening and positions becoming polarised, and they find themselves engaged in a new conflict, one in which they may not necessarily be on the same side. And then an unexpected visitor arrives.

    Stunningly detailed story - that sense of realness and place and time underpins all the beautiful character work so well. Fantastic match to the book for voice and tone.

    A really nice look at how Sandy and Alec's relationship could survive and grow.

    With bonus drunk, yet hilarious Ralph.
