    Summary

    “And I’m not being furtive about it! It’s just that the most convenient time is when you’re not home.”

    “I didn’t think you were being furtive,” said Scripps, hanging his jacket in the closet.

    Posner looked a little crestfallen. Perhaps Scripps was meant to think he was being furtive.

    Summary

    On a blustery Wednesday in March in his third year at Oxford, the lesbians found Scripps. Later, telling the story, he is tempted to say that he found them, because finding them was akin to finding God for the first time. This wasn’t blasphemy because—and this part Scripps never tells anyone—it was the lesbians who finished what God set in motion.

    Summary

    And so, here they are, arriving at the pub - to see friends - to talk, to laugh, to sing. As it ever was.

    Summary

    Stuart Dakin is a man who is accustomed to life going smoothly. Attractive, popular, clever and now rich, by his early thirties he is in a successful job with plenty of opportunities for foreign travel, he has a stunning top floor flat in the middle of central London and is happily married to a sweet, funny, gorgeous solicitor in family law. So when, seemingly out of the blue, his wife tells him she wants a divorce, he feels as if he’s suddenly lost a wheel on middle of the motorway, and is now careering out of control towards the crash barrier with no tools whatsoever to help him out of the situation.

    Summary

    Dakin doesn't know why he didn't think of it before, why he's never known there was a word for it. He's never really had to think about it until now, he supposes - but now he knows, the relief is overwhelming.

    Summary

    Irwin blinks and it's clear he's come back from miles away - where exactly he's not sure, but it's a dark, desolate recess of his mind where Dakin can't follow. He's seen that look before, but only ever in sidelong glances, when Irwin doesn't think he's watching (which of course, he always is).

    Summary

    As if he's walked down a familiar set of stairs in the dark only to find there's one more than he remembers, the ground beneath him gives way. It dawns on him that he's walking into a conversation he wasn't planning on having like this, didn't think (until recently) he'd ever need to have, and was hoping he could put off having for a little while longer.

    Summary

    “Dakin,” Irwin’s voice had a strange note to it. “How did you close the door?”

    ***

    A small tangent from the moment when Dakin and Irwin hide in the store cupboard to avoid Felix seeing them smoking.
    The first time I watched the film I would have bet every penny I had that they would fulfil the cliché of getting stuck in that cupboard and it is to my constant disappointment that this isn't the case. So here it is.

    Summary

    Posner is at first convinced that Scripps has disappeared off the face of the earth, and after talking it out with Dakin, he's determined to do something about it.
    Thankfully, Scripps is finally willing to accept some help... eventually.

    Excerpt:

    "Adult life was a lot like drowning, a lot like poetry, he supposed. You never knew how it was going to turn out. Even if you could swim, even if you could write, even if you could file taxes or talk to your friends, you never really knew."

    Summary

    He sees Irwin around town, once or twice, in a wheelchair that reminds him far too much of the accident and of Hector, and he walks the other way. He doesn't see him again until the memorial service.

    Summary

    Various drabbles and Comment Fic that are too short to post by themselves. One of Those Annoying Collections with multiple fandoms tagged. Each fandom is mentioned in the chapter summary, though, so if you open up the entire work, you can do ctrl + f to find the one you want.

    Sorry about clogging your fandoms though.
