    Summary

    After David's marriage to a Mary Renault Mother™, Frank works out how to survive.

    *

    To Nineveh_uk's prompt: Frank/David: sixes and sevens. I'm afraid 'sixes and sevens' took my mind straight to this series, where they're slightly estranged.

    Note: period-typical everythings, c.20-year age gap between sexual partners, characters who are their own exhaustive list of content warnings.

    Summary

    Every once in a while a human comes into the world endowed with magic. What is not so well known that the same is true for many other creatures. Which is not entirely surprising to anyone who has known a particularly witchy cat or abnormally lucky raven. Yet magic persists even in animals outside the familiar scope of familiars. For example, it is not unheard of for insects to be magical.

    Such as the magnificent stag beetle.

    Summary

    Adams smoked his pipe for a little in silence.
    “By the way, you pull all right with Cruikshank now, don’t you?” he asked.
    “Rather. I used to bar him awfully, but we—well, we had a talk after Hughes was sent away, and decided to get on better together. Crookles is a good chap.”

    Frank and Cruikshank have an honest talk at last.

    Note: ableist language, sex work references, homophobic language, sexual flagellation, speculation upon dubious consent, unequal power dynamics, sex between characters aged 19 and 43 respectively.
