    Summary

    Goodsir had watched him with an expression somewhere between distaste and pity. “Would it not be worth it, to finally be free of the devil?”

    The beast would still be hunting us all, Sol had thought, and what’s one devil dead when that thing can tear a man’s soul from his body—“He’s not the devil,” Sol had said. “There’s far worse than Cornelius Hickey tracking us.”

    A strange look came over the doctor, and he had again reached for the poison. “Very well then, Sergeant. I’ll dispatch of one devil for you, if you finish the other.”

    *

    In which Solomon Tozer tries to convince himself that he is bringing Hickey to justice.

    Summary

    Billy had never thought of himself as the caretaking type. His mother hadn’t lingered prior to her death, and he’d planned to be well away at sea long before his father ever entered his dotage. Let that be a burden for his sisters to manage, or his father’s young new wife.

    It was different when it was Cornelius, though.

    Summary

    Sol practically caterwauls, silencing herself by biting the skin of her inner arm.

    Neil can’t help but stare, suddenly enraptured by the bruised ring of teeth marks that remains on Sol’s ruddy skin when she pulls away to breathe. The area is slick with saliva but the teeth marks are deep and well-defined. Neil twitches, aches to mark Sol’s skin, then remembers she can.

    Summary

    And soon, at last, they fall apart, disintegrate into their smallest components - flakes of ash, shards of stone, a feather from a seabird's wing, until there is nothing at all left to see or touch.

    Hickey and Crozier survive the Tuunbaq attack and find Jopson on the verge of death. In their final days they descend into a vortex of violence, exhaustion and decay.

    Summary

    When you slip on the ice, there is a moment before your brain registers what is happening. Your foot slides and loses its hold, your body dips to an unsustainable angle, your knees begin to buckle - but you have yet to put it together, have not yet figured out what you’re headed for. In the short second before the pain of hitting the ground and loosing your footing, all you feel is a lack of understanding and an alarming surge in your guts.

    It’s like that now. Tozer sits watching Hickey paw Lieutenant Hodgson and feels the ground slip away and away.

    Hickey tilts his head. “May I see to you?” he says to Hodgson, very gently.

    __

     

    Tozer becomes a willing witness to Hickey's seduction of Hodgson, and is seduced himself in the process.

    Summary

    It’s a miracle that they’d all escaped with their lives, after that last bank robbery had gone south. It’s a miracle that they’d escaped with their identities unrevealed. It’s a miracle that Hickey still has Tozer trailing after him, after he’d nearly gotten him killed, and himself, too, on at least thirty separate occasions, but for all his virtues, Tozer’s never been a quick study. 

    Hickey and Tozer go west.

    Summary

    When Sol looks back, Hickey has his wrist perched against the edge of the basket and his hand dangles within. The nameless baby holds his finger, and Sol feels his face frowning before he tells it to.
    “Cornelius. We aren’t keeping that baby.”

    Summary

    He doubted there was a man among them, save perhaps for Goodsir with his scribblings, that knew the date, let alone what day of the week it was, but Hickey operated on his own schedule. To some extent he had always done that, Sol thought, whatever the strictures to which he’d once capitulated. All things in his own time.

    Summary

    “We… found you out by Lake Franklin, on the rocks,” Goodsir began, halting. “Sprawled there, all but dying. Your body was shutting down. None of us knew who put you there or why you might have arrived. Dr McDonald and I have been working to stabilise you.”

    “McDonald,” James repeated. Once more, his judgement of the situation veered toward his own afterlife - - McDonald had died during the Carnivale fire. “I - I died, then? This is - Hell, or Heaven, or some such afterlife?”

    Goodsir stared at him.

    “I don’t quite think so, sir,” he said. “As I said, this town - it’s for… er, unworldly things, I should suppose you might say. Things that might make men uncomfortable, should they know they roomed with us. It’s safer for us here, out of the way.”

    or: Life after death is not a foreign concept to James - but he'd not been expecting this. Struck with the knowledge he's been placed into a different time, James finds himself unable to escape the Expedition in a new way - each face he meets in town is one he greeted on the ships in 1845, and some of them seem awfully interested in seeing history repeat itself.

    Summary

    Hickey looked up at her, water dripping from the tip of her nose even as it lashed at her face.
    “What, your fingers stop working because of a change in weather?” Sol knelt and took the rope from her freezing hands.

    Summary

    "Homeopathy,” Neil corrected. “It’s some natural medicine thing, it’s all herbs and stuff, but here’s the brilliant part. They’re diluted like a hundred times until it’s basically just water. You’re literally selling people nothing.”

    Billy thought that sounded extremely stupid. Surely people could tell if the supposed medicine they were being sold did nothing. But he couldn’t say no to Neil. There was something about his face— even when you knew he was trying to play you, part of you felt like it might be a good idea to let him. Just to see what happened next.

    Summary

    It's a bit like Fight Club, he has to admit. Cornelius is their own personal megalomaniac leader. Sol doesn't fancy himself the protagonist--he isn't fucked enough in the head for that--but that doesn't stop him from following Cornelius like a hungry dog, corralling the other men in his wake.

    What he doesn't understand is what all this has to do with the collection at the John Franklin Memorial Maritime Museum.
