    Summary

    — Чувствуй себя как дома. До скольки, говоришь, твоя мама работает?
    Джимми устало опускается в кресло, позволяя себе утонуть в подушках.
    — По четвергам она заканчивает поздно, так что до двух ночи, наверное.
    — Ну и ну, — говорит Адиль, поднимая брови, скидывая пиджак и ослабляя узел галстука. — Тогда нет смысла тебе идти домой. Можешь оставаться ночевать и сходить за чистой формой с утра.

    Summary

    Sheffield-specific snapshots of childhood friends consuming a lot of sugar, overthinking life and failing at heterosexuality.
    In this house we love and cherish these boys; poetry; Yorkshire as a concept; etymology; the Cure; affectionate friendships; and the British working class.

    Triggers for individual chapters will be specified in the notes, and each chapter is named after a song by The Smiths (with accompanying lyrics at the beginning).

    Summary

    “Make yourself at home. When did you say your mum finishes at work?”

    Jimmy sits heavily, allowing himself to sink back into the cushions. “She works late shifts on a Thursday, so about 2am, I reckon.”

    “Blimey,” Adil says, brows raised as he shrugs off his blazer and loosens his tie. “No point heading back then; you may as well stay the night and head over to yours to grab clean uniform in the morning."

    Summary

    The boys' Muggle Literature classes become a lot more interesting when notorious mugglephobe Draco Malfoy stumbles in. Hector doesn't seem to mind. Posner minds a lot. Scripps is trying to get over how gorgeous the blonde is. Dakin looks all too pleased with these progressions (when he isn't sneaking off to have long chats with his History of Magic teacher.) Alternatively, the History Boys find out what their patronuses are, and it gets a little melancholy.

    Summary

    'Marriage had never been on his cards, but neither had breaking up with his girlfriend before dating his ex-teacher while studying at Oxford.'
    In which Dakin's insecurities show, loose ends are tied up, and the lives of the Oxbridge eight move on. Or, we get the ending we deserved.
    (For Antonio, who was the engine behind this angst-train.)

    Summary

    “Said he had a couple of books you were after, is all,” Lockwood clicks his tongue, finishes his cake and flicks the wrapper at Scripps’s chest. “Anyway, I’d best be off. I’ve half a float of milk left to unload on some poor bastards. See you Monday, lads.”

    He gives a half-hearted wave as he sees himself out, and Scripps finds himself inundated by particularly exhausted office staff for the next half hour, so doesn’t have chance to think any more on it.

    Summary

    “You never used to say his name before.”

    “He was a threat before,” Scripps replies, rather more bluntly than he means to. “Given he got his arse kicked by a baby there suddenly seems less of a possibility that him or his maniac followers are going to kill someone I care about.”

    Posner fixes him with an odd look for a moment, and Scripps wonders if he knows just how worried he’d been for his safety, how often he’d been thinking of him instead of his summer reading, how awful it’d been hearing of an attack but not knowing yet if he was safe.

    Summary

    "I passed by the school where I studied as a boy
    and said in my heart: here I learned certain things
    and didn't learn others. All my life I have loved in vain
    the things I didn't learn."

    "The School Where I Studied," by Yehuda Amichai, translated by Chana Bloch and Chana Kronfeld.

    -

    When Scripps gets to Oxford, certain things change and others don't. Or: Don Scripps grows up and, however slowly, attempts to come to terms with God, love, and himself.
