    Summary

    Winters in the Arctic are long and lonely, especially for a Captain who is a drunkard who is missing the embrace of someone who may or may not love him. There is little solace is to be found on a ship frozen in the ice for Francis Crozier. However, console does take a most peculiar form in his steward Thomas Jopson, a man with whom such bleak surroundings are familiar.

    But this is a different time, at the other end of the world. Some emotions cannot always be trusted nor indulged in due to their stakes, no matter what lines are crossed. At least, that is what Crozier tells himself as he becomes more infatuated by Jopson's presence.

    Summary

    James looked at the ad. He looked over at the leak, and then back at the ad. It didn’t seem very legit, especially the part at the bottom, some glittery graphic that reminded him of MySpace and made his head hurt: “CASH OR BITCOIN ONLY!!!!!!”

    A small wet splash startled him. Part of the ceiling had come loose and fallen into the bucket. Fuck.

    James had only the barest outline of what bitcoin was. He’d need to go find an ATM. Sighing, he dialed the number.

    - - -

    James has a hole in the roof of his houseboat. He hires someone off Craigslist to fix it. Now he has two holes in his roof.

    Note: E for Explicit applies to later chapters.

    Summary

    Without thinking he reaches for the small of his back, gasps, and yanks his hand away at the answering touch of a warm, rubbery bulge there.

    “Ah,” the doctor says. “That would be the, ah, ouroboros. It’s an… organism, a—we speculate—a complex kind of pyrosome, though it…” he sighs. “This may be difficult to hear, Mr. Collins, and I’m afraid there’s no way to say it that will not be shocking, but—well, it did keep you alive, this ouroboros. In the ocean. But unfortunately, it rather… attached itself to you, and I’m afraid it—well, I’m afraid we haven’t yet discovered how to remove it without detriment.” He pauses, smiles again. The expression doesn’t reach his eyes, Collins notices—those are full of fear.

    Summary

    A fic-in-pieces exploring the relationships between the doctors of the Franklin Expedition.

    Functions as a prequel (chapters 1-4) and a sequel (chapter 5 onwards) to my doctors/Goodsir-centric fic (Do No) Harm but legible without it.

    Ch 16: ohhh we're really in it now. In the fic about the doctors, the following characters are reluctantly spotlit: Le Vesconte, Tozer, Jopson, Crozier, Blanky, McDonald. The following characters don't do much at all: Goodsir.

    Summary

    “Do you plan to linger long in the doorway Doctor Goodsir?”

    “My apologies Doctor Macdonald - I didn’t wish to disturb you.” He wades out into the ink dark sea, shuffling until he can place his candle down opposite the other’s so their light pools together. Across the table Macdonald looks drawn; the captain’s illness and their crew's absence, berthed on Erebus as so many of them are, seems to have pulled all comforting jollity from his face. “I fancied you asleep.”

    Macdonald lets out a quiet, aborted laugh and rubs one ink stained hand across his brow. “I suppose I ought to be Doctor Goodsir-”

    “Harry. Please.” He can only assume it’s the late hour or the way their candles surround them in a bubble of light that cut them off even from the sickbay, their true home of these long years, that finally pulls down the last of Macdonald’s polite defences. Or perhaps they are finally friends. The reason, whatever it might be, Harry finds does not matter at all, just the quiet roll of his name from Doctor Macdonald - Alexander’s - tongue.

    Summary

    Stephen Stanley, six foot four of rock-solid, devastatingly handsome repression, looks as if he is about to have a stroke. He is silent, staring at the - thoroughly debauched - scene in front of him, his face taut and white.

    Summary

    Peddie watches now as Fairholme leans back and absentmindedly strokes his mustache, lost in thought. It’s a rather nice mustache—smaller than his own, but certainly better groomed. If Peddie’s thoughts stray to how that mustache would feel pressed against his own lips, well. It has been an exceptionally boring dinner party.

     

    Assistant Surgeon John Peddie is stuck at a never ending dinner party on Erebus and finds himself fascinated by the sexy, silent lieutenant sitting across from him.

    Summary

    ‘Now that is an exceptionally pleasant sight.’
    Tom cocks his head up, and smiles - warm and sleepy - at the broad, silhouetted shape of Alex. The sun is blazing, heating the tiling around the pool pleasantly, and warming the water until it is like a hot bath. Tom breathes in the soft, chlorine scent that lingers around Tommy’s legs and lap, resting his arms on the sturdy metal bar that encircles the edge of the pool.
    ‘Dirty old man,’ Tommy chuckles, ‘takin’ advantage of a couple of innocent lads like this.’
    Alex grins, settling down next to Tommy and tousling his dark, curly hair, ‘Well I’ll have to find a couple of innocent lads to take advantage of first, pet, because you two certainly don’t qualify.’
