    Summary

    Stuart’s tastes have always run to the decadent in everything: food, booze and sex to name the obvious, as well as more material pleasures, and now smoking was struck from the ever dwindling list of acceptable pleasures.

    Summary

    “And here I thought you didn’t care for her,” Scripps says with a smirk as he taps the spine of Pos’s copy of Pride and Prejudice before sitting down at the piano in Hector’s classroom.

    As Scrips fiddles with the sheet music on the piano, he notices the amused eye roll Pos sends his way. The younger boy looks almost too pleased with himself as he quotes, “Come now. The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”

    “Alright,” Scripps says, throwing up his arms in mock surrender, earning a rare, small laugh from his classmate. Trying to keep up the rapport, Scripps places a hand on his chin and eyes Pos, “Still, she seems a bit—”

    “Distressingly heterosexual? Yes,” Posner says with a resolute flippancy in his voice. He gingerly closes the book and sets it down with a distant smile on his face. “But it’s about the yearning, Scrippsy, don’t you understand?”


    Four interconnected Friends-to-Lovers Scosner drabbles in which Scripps and Posner utilize Jane Austen quotations in life, loss, and love as they navigate their relationship at Cutler's, university, and beyond.

    Summary

    "It’s a funny thing that it’s not more frowned upon, what with it being so full of the forbidden. I’m amazed little boys are allowed to read it, it’s quite racy. Apollo and Hyacinth, for instance. Very romantic. Tragic.”   

    “I know you want me to ask, but what’s the point; you’re going to tell me anyway.”

    Summary

    You know that thing where you lose touch with someone you were close to, and you randomly get back together, and you pick up right where you left off, and it's so easy you wonder why on earth you let it go in the first place? That.

    Summary

    In which our boys are transported to the 1940s

    It’s funny, Posner thinks, but in a dozen flights he hasn’t even seen Dover. He’s seen neither Dover, nor France, nor Germany, nor Denmark—all he’s seen is a patch of sky over the heads of Scripps and Dakin when they carve out a minute on a calm section of the route. All the places they’ve been he knows only from his maps: bends in the rivers, city markers, scraps of fields, anti-aircraft weapon stations. Maybe it’s for the best.

    Summary

    “D’you get any Valentines, Pos?”, Dakin asked, slinging his bag on the table and slouching down in the seat opposite. It was a dreary February afternoon, and there was really nothing to do but hang around in the dinner hall and make a nuisance of himself.

    Summary

    "To be fair, I don’t think it’s dealing with other people’s shit that bothers him, it’s the being paid to give a shit about other people that he finds effeminate. And there’s nothing worse than that is there? What do you do?"
