    Summary

    Winters in the Arctic are long and lonely, especially for a Captain who is a drunkard who is missing the embrace of someone who may or may not love him. There is little solace is to be found on a ship frozen in the ice for Francis Crozier. However, console does take a most peculiar form in his steward Thomas Jopson, a man with whom such bleak surroundings are familiar.

    But this is a different time, at the other end of the world. Some emotions cannot always be trusted nor indulged in due to their stakes, no matter what lines are crossed. At least, that is what Crozier tells himself as he becomes more infatuated by Jopson's presence.

    Summary

    I’ll not have a picture, he thinks, gazing grimly at James’ drawn, damaged face. I’ll not have a miniature to tuck inside my breast pocket, or a sketch made on a winter’s evening by the fireside. It will be my own burden to remember him, until such a time as this cursed land takes me, too.

    Twenty five men return to England. For Francis, this means making a poor job of keeping James from scuttling his career, and working out what a sea captain might do with himself in the absence of a ship.

    Summary

    Long afloat on shipless oceans / I did all my best to smile / 'Til your singing eyes and fingers / Drew me loving to your isle / And you sang / Sail to me, sail to me / Let me enfold you / Here I am, here I am / Waiting to hold you

    Summary

    Inspired by @spader7's Terror Metal AU

    This is the story of five human disasters who love each other - and a sixth who's willingly signed up to manage the chaos.

    Thomas Jopson grew up on tour with his mother, a beloved and world-famous British musical sensation. After she succumbs to her addiction, he realizes how much he’d built his life around her. And around being on tour. Now that she’s gone, he finds himself adrift. At the suggestion of his recently-out younger sister, he reaches out to Lady Jane Franklin and invites her over for tea. Lady Jane is matriarch of the local punk and metal scene; the Marcia to John Franklin’s George. Thomas has an ulterior motive: to find out what’s become of Ettie’s favorite heavy metal band, the Terabytes, who have a nationwide tour of their own bearing down on them are in need of a new manager after Sir John’s … unfortunate demise.

    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

    Francis wants someone to say yes to him, and James will be that person – but Francis needs coaxing and reassurance that it would be a good thing – that it would be good and happy and right.

    It’s not even just James doing the coaxing, which on the whole probably makes things a bit easier.

    Summary

    The year: 1846. Seasoned naval captain/fashionista Frances Pigathia Moira Crozier has made her hardest discovery yet: that sailing to the Arctic is no way to mend a recently broken heart. Rising star and war hero James Fitzjames has more than a few secrets up his sleeve. Former colonial governor Sir Sam Eagle is seeking to restore his dented reputation by finding the greatest prize of all: the fabled Northwest Passage. And caulker's mate Cornelius Hickey is, as far as anyone can tell, just here for the food. When disaster strikes, can this ragtag bunch of misfits- along with ice master Gonzo and kind-hearted ship's surgeon Dr. Harry Goodfrog- keep everything from going more pear-shaped than Lt. Fozzie's head?

    Summary

    “It’s called -” Francis huffed into the phone, commended his soul to a god he wasn’t quite sure he still believed in. “Right now, it’s called…” He sighed. “It’s called Barrow’s Baking Boys.”
      
    When Francis tried out for what he thought was Bake Off, he didn't expect to end up on a knock-off run by an aging baker desperate for a legacy. But now he's here, trying to keep up with the younger bakers and their flashy piping, avoid the eyes of cameras that only seem to catch him at his worst, and do his best not to be distracted by that posh bastard with the perfect hair.

    Ten weeks, twelve contestants, two hundred and twenty five bakes.

    One winner.

    Let the first season of Barrow's Baking Boys Begin!

    Summary

    They had been rescued. What a marvellous, wonderful thing.
    Yes, Goodsir thought, as he stared at a knot of wood in a wall-plank across the room, as he had been doing for the past few minutes, how miraculous.
    He wondered if, should he blink, the strange world he now found himself in would twist and melt way, back into white skies and grey shale.
    Would that be better?
    He hasn’t been thinking properly. His thought were…disjointed, his mind like a cold, empty box, where ideas and fragment of memories condensed on the walls, to sluice down and drip from a hole in the bottom of his skull, without ever truly registering in his consciousness.
    He brought his fingers to the back of his cranium, holding them there and then to his face, almost expecting there to be grey matter clinging to his ragged nails
