    Summary

    Day breaks over Greenhithe as surely as it does over all of England. Months from now, they’ll grow tired of never ending sunlight, he expects, only to miss it terribly some months later still, shrouded in darkness for weeks on end. He knows what to expect, but he doubts many aboard do.

    a.k.a. The Franklin Expedition with slightly less hubris and a little more luck.

    Summary

    Things you should have by the age of thirty (according to the meme Tozer posted in the group chat):

    - a dog
    - anxiety
    - a dog with anxiety

    By that metric, Ed Little is crushing it. By every other, he very much isn't.

    [Modern AU in which Ed has a rescue dog and meets a handsome PA at the park.]

    [Ch17: in which it's Ed's birthday and he just wanted a nice walk, Sol and John are having a Row, and Dundy does a big scold good job Dunders.]

    Summary

    ‘That’s a real – sailor’s endeavour, James.’
    ‘And we’ve had a real officers’ day of it. I say, confusion to our enemies – let’s be sailors, if that is how you see it.’

    Amidst a grinding court-martial, James suggests he and Francis try something new.

    Summary

    They learned one another in haste and uncertainty, and it was far from ideal, but it was easier in its way than being so thoroughly and diligently explored as this. Francis is all too sensible of his defects, and all too conscious that James barely knows the half of them yet.

    James, Francis, and a late night.

    Summary

    His heart drums out a staccato beat, or what seems like it. In reality, it must be going dangerously fast, judging by how much he is trembling. He feels ill, so ill he should probably warn Francis he might very well pass out.

    “Francis.”

    “Hm?” 

    He is standing on a knife edge, looking out into oblivion. He could step off now, and stay safe on land. Or he could jump, and see his life flash before his eyes, and plunge into the depths below. Into the depths of Hell where he belongs. 

    What’s one more sinner among all the fish in the ocean? 

    He jumps.

     

    James Fitzjames devotes a great deal of time to thinking, some of his favourite subjects (if one could call them that) being the human heart, identity, legacy and, most of all, Captain Francis Crozier.

    Summary

    James’ eyes are unfocused and wide with panic, staring at Francis without really seeing him. Francis wants to help him, shake him out of this fugue state somehow, but he’s unsure how to do it. So he repeats his name, a quiet James. The spell breaks at that and James blinks, purses his trembling lips for a moment like he always does when he’s desperate to compose himself.

    “What was it?” Francis asks quietly, and he hardly even remembers his own distress now because James needs him, and Francis will always put James’ needs above his own.

    Summary

    It's the break in the song, when I should say something special. But the pressure is on, and I can't think of nothing special. Not when I'm with you.

    Summary

    James finds him at his desk, as usual, lamp burning low and Francis fast asleep - slumped over inelegantly with his head pillowed on his arm. Just a moment, is what he usually says to James before he drifts off thus - warm and comfortable on the settee before the fire, just need to rest my eyes, they're not what they used to be.

    "Francis," he shakes his beloved's shoulder gently, merely ghosting his fingers over the well-worn shirtsleeve because they all wake easily after the shale. Jopson and Little have long retired, weary as they are from the long coach journey south for the visit, and James didn't expect Francis to return to his task while they have guests. "Darling, you must get to bed."

    "I'm in bed," Francis grouses, voice rough and angular before he blinks awake enough to see James standing over him. "Oh, god. Get out of my study."

    Summary

    Thomas Jopson has always been a good boy, especially where his adoptive father Francis Crozier was concerned. But when a chance moment leads to a seemingly small act of rebellion, he finds out how easily bonds can be created - or broken.

    Summary

    Francis Crozier wakes with a splitting headache, the stale smell of hours-old vomit on the air. Then it keeps happening, exactly that same way.

    Summary

    The Arctic is another world to the rest of the Earth. In all of the other lands that James has sailed to and walked across, a compass can be relied upon to spin north. A setting sun will rise at the break of day. A bear is only a bear.

    A man, once dead, does not come back.

    Summary

    Drops of scarlet red blood dot the marble floor around him.
    James’s heart is seized with terror as he lowers his gaze to his hand.
    Resting in his palm, among spit, phlegm, and blood, is a white petal.

    Summary

    Lieutenant Jopson returns from a trip to the Arctic with Captain Little on HMS Coyote, and visits Crozier, who is now retired and living as a lighthouse keeper. Some sort of scandal occurred on the voyage, and Jopson is reluctant to reveal the details. Crozier is adjusting to the fact that Jopson is now his equal.

    As the men of the Franklin expedition have cheated death, a man who was not meant to be dead has now passed on, the repercussions could spell doom for all the survivors, though they believe they are home and safe.

    Summary

    “Here,” James strokes Francis’ forehead. “A lump would mean you were a good mimic, or an actor — or a liar.”

    “Those pamphlets you delight in bringing home,” says Francis grumpily. “How many times have I told you they’re good for nothing but lighting fires?”
