    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

    Dakin gabbled on, willing himself to stop, “Look, it got out of hand. I changed my mind. I tried to leave, and… let’s just say he didn’t like it. He knocked me about a bit, gave me a fat lip, then he threw me out anyway.”

    “Ah,” said Irwin, “You went home with Dr Jekyll, and you got Mr Hyde. You should be more careful on a night like this.”

    Summary

    Love, friendship and the trials of soul marks are never easy to navigate. At eighteen, a name on your forearm can make the world all the more a painful and confusing place.

    'Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same; and Linton's is as different as a moonbeam from lightning, or frost from fire.' - Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte

    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.

    But first, our hero (Dakin) must perform the Labours of Heracles to get past Irwin's family.

    Summary

    Scripps: You can't explain away the poetry, sir.
     
    Lockwood: No, sir. Art wins in the end.

    Scripps doesn't remember what he said in response--something deceptively pithy about the vicar, likely--but he does remember how Jimmy looked back at him, unguarded despite his casual blasphemy. His hair, so dark in the few photographs that remain, shone that day, the sunlight pulling out all the colors that the cameras flattened, and his eyes were bright with the mirth of a soldier who knows joy is fleeting and so must be celebrated each second it appears.

    In which Scripps is an echo of Siegfried Sassoon and James Lockwood is an echo of Wilfred Owen.

    Summary

    They stopped at the lights—riding a frustrating, red wave. Tom drummed his fingers as though it might speed things along while a man carried a Christmas tree across the road, and a small boy ran behind, patting the trunk. Tom laughed, “He’s not really pulling his weight, is he?” he said, and Stuart grunted, “He’s doing his best”. 

    In which our boys face the future and conclude it's best done together—for better or worse.

    Summary

    Christmas, 2003. Ageing rockstar Stuart Dakin is determined to revive his career at any cost, even if it means pretending to like Christmas.

    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

    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.
