    Summary

    Fitzjames volunteered to sail with Sir James Ross to the Antarctic, but the Admiralty wanted a return from his expensive training on the Excellent, so he was appointed gunnery lieutenant to HMS Ganges instead. He never got as far as an interview with Ross.

    A what-if, and the adventure that follows.

    Summary

    Crozier shouldn’t have joined a research trip run by Fitzjames, his sworn enemy. He should have salvaged his reputation while he had the chance. And above all, he should have paid more attention to the news coming from Wuhan.

    But you know what they say about hindsight.

    OR: The silly/serious AU where they're all in a research ship stranded at sea during the pandemic.

    Now with footnotes!

    Summary

    “You’ve been gone a while,” James said.

    Seven months. He’d set out as soon as the weather cleared up, loathe to be cooped up with the reminders of his failure any longer.
    “You know how it is,” Francis said, following the line connecting their bodies, from Fitzjames’s hand, with its smooth skin and long fingers, up his arm and shoulder, to the part where his clavicle was visible under the robe that had slipped, over his throat with the Adam’s apple working as Fitzjames swallowed, and lastly, to his face. When he met Fitzjames’s eyes, everything that needed to be said had been said.

    The year is 1898. Francis Crozier is a bounty hunter who loves the road more than anyone else he’s ever met. James Fitzjames is a cowboy looking for his place in the world.

    Complete, updates every Sunday.

    Summary

    Francis has no particular need of care, no particular desire to have fingers brush his face or person as though he were something breakable and sacred, a temptation and a promise all at once.

    No particular desire.

    Which is just as well, all things considered.

    Or rather, considering one specific thing: that the man in his bed is James Fitzjames.

    Summary

    Francis swirled the last dregs in his glass and peered into its depths. Some kind of grim satisfaction had come over him. “I’ll tell you what you want to hear,” he said. “For a certain price.” It was foolhardy beyond measure. Damning, even.

    Summary

    See additional warnings in end notes.

    ———

    Even at the worst of it. Even at the eleventh hour, when the weakest of them (James included) were driven round the wheel of breath by brute instinct alone, dead men with beating blood, Francis emanated the kind of muddy half-light that precedes the rising sun. His indefatigable will made manifest in the flesh.

    “Don’t be cruel, James,” he is saying now. “I am fat, decrepit. My better days, if ever I had them, are long behind me.”

    “Ever the curmudgeon. You’ve no idea how ... splendid you are. I, for one, think these are your finest days.”

    Summary

    A man – Francis instinctively wants to call him this, but although he can see his face and his arms and chest and can deem them all to be quite regular, he can also make out a hint of a shadow of something – no legs but a tail, he thinks – moving lazily beneath the surface of the water. This is no man, this is not like any man Francis has ever known.

    Summary

    Francis's body registers it before his mind; well before it, as a matter of fact – hands suddenly shaking, a flutter rippling up his spine, sick and lukewarm.
    He stops, tries to blink himself back into the moment: he tells himself, very firmly, there is nothing, absolutely nothing that should make him feel this undone, not even with his penchant for tragedy.

    Summary

    “I look at all of you and I see you. But I also see who we were… It’s so strange. I remember things like going to the movies with you, swimming at the beach and Halloween but in my dreams or my memories, I remember seeing the blood on the snow, I remember the darkness of night that was just never broken by the sunrise and I remember Carnivale…” Francis tried to explain. James gripped the handlebars of his bicycle tightly.

    Harry had asked him about Carnivale.

    “For a moment, I forget what's past and what is present,” Francis breathed.

    Love who came so late, you never saw
    me singing in the cornfields yesterday.
    Love of so much silence and weariness,
    please don’t bring me any tears today.

    Summary

    Years ago, an infamous white whale attacked Captain Crozier's ship and killed nearly everyone on board. The captain, overwhelmed with grief and thoughts of revenge, started hunting the creature and never stopped.
    Among the survivors of that first voyage was John Bridgens, who is about to set sail again with Crozier, now a shadow of the brilliant captain John once knew. Henry Peglar, returning to his true love - the sea -, meets Bridgens in an inn the evening before the Terror, Endgland's most famous whaler, ships.

    Between years of whaling, dubious shipmates, new friends, and the ever-present threat of the great white whale, some sailors might just find something, or someone, worth fighting for.

    "Thou saw’st the locked lovers when leaping from their flaming ship; heart to heart they sank beneath the exulting wave; true to each other, when heaven seemed false to them"
    - Herman Melville

    Summary

    “A full court martial is technically required when a ship is lost."

    In 1851, a small fleet under the command of Captain Horatio Thomas Austin located the survivors of the ill-fated Franklin Expedition and brought twenty-some corpse-like figures back to England. Given temporary leave to recuperate in the countryside following their ordeal, Edward Little and Thomas Jopson attempt to reconcile the past with the present and the fact that not all the ice was left behind in the Arctic.

    Or, nearly 30k of survivor's guilt, intimacy, the softness and tragedy of the human connection, and learning to forgive.

    Summary

    Disaster is averted and the men of the HMS Terror and Erebus are rescued by Sir James Clark Ross. On the way home, Alpha Francis finds himself in a delicate dilemma with his subordinate, Omega Commander James Fitzjames. The hardships they faced have made bonds spring up between the Alphas and Omegas. Bonds that need to be finalized and for an Omega like Fitzjames, it is imperative he do so, lest he lose his standing.

    Ross is aware and urges Francis to take action, yet Francis finds his hand forced and he must make the choice to bond with Fitzjames or leave him to suffer. And after all they had gone through...Francis makes his choice.

    A choice that will affect their futures in ways he nor James would ever expect.
