    Summary

    January is surprised to realize how fond he is becoming of Shaw, and discusses it with Hannibal. Shaw overhears some of this, but only some, and unfortunately comes away with exactly the wrong idea about January's feelings.

    (Or, can I take a Shakespeare sonnet and a misunderstanding worthy of a romcom, and create a short little gay romance set in another author's 1830s New Orleans? I can sure try!)

    Summary

    A plotless bit of self-indulgent stuff best summarized by a quote from the work:

    "January swung the shutters open quickly, and, despite recognizing the voice, had to look twice to understand what he was seeing. Then he blinked, and the apparent bundle of muddy kindling resting against the railing opposite his room blinked back, and resolved itself into the half-collapsed form of Lieutenant Abishag Shaw."

    Summary

    “Oh. Well, I’ve been better, maestro, been a hell of a lot better to tell truth.” Shaw stared at him for a long moment, and he was stunned to see honest to God grief in his eyes. Even when Shaw had just lost his brother he had been so much more himself than this lost man currently standing before him. “Not that I mean to put anything extra on your shoulders, I’m sure you’ve got enough of your own shit going on at present moment, but it seems like I’ve just lost my job.”

    Summary

    It should have been more awkward than it was--it should have been unthinkable--having her lover’s wife here in her parlor. But Chloë had a way of refusing to allow for awkwardness by refusing to acknowledge it, and as she settled herself on the striped silk settee and folded her small gloved hands in her lap, she looked as composed as she did anywhere else Dominique had ever seen her. It gave Dominique rather a dizzy feeling. 

    Chloë, Dominique, gossip, code-breaking, burglary, and blackmail.

    Summary

    He was so caught up in misery, particularly the misery that came upon him when he thought of the raw look that tended to linger on Shaw's face when he was too tired to hide it, that it took him a while to realise that there was a wolf before him.

    Summary

    “Maestro?” He hissed into the dark, when he judged that he was roughly at the place where their altercation had happened earlier. And then, significantly more panicked as this elicited only the rustle of leaves and the pop of mud bubbles: “Ben?”
