    Summary

    Where a group which barely missed becoming Historic, are aiming to study history at the most prestigious universities in England. If their 'pursuit of sex, sport and a place at university' doesn't dominate their lives, what else will? There's a new teacher on the staff, and it's not his gap year. But it may as well be. Chaos ensues when staff clash, students swoon, and there's a few dick jokes thrown in too.

    A crossover of sorts between Victor Hugo's Les Miserables and Alan Bennett's The History Boys. Exploring class, religion, sexuality and a smidge of politics in the 1980's - with some french thrown in for good luck.

    Summary

    “Five years. Bloody hell.”

    “Yeah,” Tony murmurs. “Five years.”

    The headstone at their feet doesn’t seem to have weathered, dates as harsh against the granite as they were last year, and the year before that, and the one before that—He shakes his head. Too long yet not long enough for grief to have passed by.

    David and Don navigate the choppy waters of the everyday. This is probably the angstiest thing I've written since I was 16, and the sex reference-iest since ever. Please accept this very short, semi-poetic offering.

    Summary

    “Make yourself at home. When did you say your mum finishes at work?”

    Jimmy sits heavily, allowing himself to sink back into the cushions. “She works late shifts on a Thursday, so about 2am, I reckon.”

    “Blimey,” Adil says, brows raised as he shrugs off his blazer and loosens his tie. “No point heading back then; you may as well stay the night and head over to yours to grab clean uniform in the morning."
