    Summary

    Prompted by AO3 fics suggesting that Patrick is gay and Peter might be gay, and a post read the same day which asked about Soho porn shops in the 1980s.

    There's a shop in Soho which is a wonderful art bookshop on the ground floor, while the basement stock is somewhat... different, to the shock of many a tourist.
    You just know that if Peter Marlow went to London, he'd accidentally end up down there, and it would be down to Patrick to find him.
    Also exploring the cliche that boys have sex at boarding school, girls don't, and how that might have affected Peter and Patrick differently.

    Summary

    To put it fairly lightly, Julian Fleming has a vexed relationship with Shakespeare's Henry IV plays.

    ***

    Note: period-typical homophobic language and attitudes, fairly extensive but very inexplicit discussion of underage sexual activity at English public schools (with attendant power and consent issues), sexual approach of a 16-year-old by a 19-year-old (canonical, but canonical plus, not minus), canon-typical family dysfunction, brief reference to PoW experience in the Second World War.
