    Summary

    “I’m upset that you’d turn to people you don’t know for pleasure, when people who’d dally with you happily are standing right in front of you,” I said, drew in a deep breath and forged stubbornly onwards as his eyes went wide again. “To be more specific, as you always urge me to be: I’m upset that you’d go with somebody who looked almost exactly like me, when I’m right here.”

    Summary

    In previous times I had allowed uncertainty to hold my tongue and turn me into a stuttering fool. Now there seemed very little point. “It’s late.”

    He looked at me, and even though he quite obviously knew what I was about his expression remained unyielding. I supposed he wasn’t used to allowing himself to bend, after all this time spent resolutely alone. “So you should be on your way home?”

    “That’s not what I meant, and you know it,” I said, equally stubbornly. I had allowed Blake to wriggle around me before, but this situation seemed rather too important to allow such laxity; I had finally discovered what wanting was, I was little inclined to let it go now. “Invite me up.”

    Summary

    “You know, this is probably a silly thought,” he started, giving a nervous laugh that was quite possibly the least casual thing that I’d ever heard. “But this club does have some private rooms, so people who want more - ah - involved company don’t bother those who just want a quiet conversation with their friends. If you wanted-”

    Summary

    “I just wanted to know if you always enjoy, um…”

    Blake’s eyebrow slowly rose, his eyes now fixed upon me with that certain obsessive focus that always somewhat undid me. “Being fucked?”

    “Yes, that,” I said, with a certain sense of relief, and only blushed all the harder when Blake gave me a pointed look; he always liked me to put things into words, something that was often rather torturous given my stiff British upbringing. ”Um, being fucked.”

    Summary

    I tucked a strand of hair behind his ear, just an absent minded gesture as an overlong chunk of it had come loose, and was surprised when he gave a full body shudder against me like he’d never been touched so intimately.

    I liked him enormously.

    Avery and Macpherson, and an evening's respite from the lethargy of an ensign's life in Calcutta.

    Summary

    Blake made a noise when I wrapped my arms around him. It was an incredibly quiet one, soft enough that anybody else would’ve missed it, but I knew him so well that it was as if he had shouted right in my ear.

    Summary

    “You must really care about your friend, to go this far for him.”

    He blinked a little at that, found himself staring into space as he thought about just how big a claim Blake had on his heart. “You have no idea. Besides my sister, I think he’s the only person who has ever seen potential in me in all my life. And that means a lot. He’s the smartest, bravest, most moral man that I’ve ever met and is one of only perhaps three people that I care for in the world. I would do absolutely anything for him, crawl on my hands and knees through hell if required.”

    Summary

    “I don’t need you to nursemaid me,” he was still saying in irritation, because of course he was, as I swiftly preceded him up the stairs to his rooms and unlocked the door. “I’m fine, William, there’s really no need to fret.”

    "If you're making this up…"

    "You'll bodily drag me out into the streets? Or go snitching to my husband?" Helen sneers on the last word. Even scornful, she looks disturbingly pretty.

    Summary

    "So," Blake said, an expression of pure outrage rising on his face. it was subtle, most would've thought him merely annoyed, but I'd known him for long enough that I could tell the signs. "They're trying to blackmail you too, then."

    Summary

    "Jeremiah, are you-?"

    "They had guns, William," he informed me sharply, still looking at me with those terribly frenzied eyes. "They were prepared to shoot at us, at you. You could've died."
