    George Smiley: spy, husband, cuckold, and friend, each part indivisible from the others. The whole is kind, pathetic, clever, weak, dangerous—and wounded, again and again, from 1945 to 1973.

    Summary

    Cool was the breeze in the evening, along the darkened street.
    The city was retiring, closing shutters at every suite.
    But even in that stillness, you could hear the faintest sound,
    Of the music that was playing -
         playing, swaying -
    The music faintly playing from the jazz band underground.

    Secretary Hamilton, belay that shouting!
    You protest too much, there's certainly no doubting

    and so far there's been seven, plus me--but who's counting?

    Nineteen Eighty-Four was a joke because they didn’t let you know they were there, like Big Brother. They were just there. Bill knew they were watching. He’d known since he was a boy at school.

    Audrey confides in Rust about something she doesn't want to tell anybody else.

    This started as a gen one-shot for Yuletide that got increasingly shippy in Chapters 2 & 3. Basically an unorthodox friendship evolves into something else, complete with serious snags and serious work to keep the relationship hidden.
