    Summary

    Thomas Jopson just died. But then, surprisingly, he woke up again. He's in an unfamiliar place, in an unfamiliar time, surrounded by very familiar faces. He's the de facto leader of a band of intrepid heroes-for-hire who specialize in swords, sorcery, and making things up as they go along. They just so happen to be heading to the city of Erebus in hopes of saving it from something terrifying and formidable (even though no one is quite sure what it is). This is going to happen, Jopson soon realizes, whether he has any idea what's going on or not.

    Summary

    Cornelius Hickey is inevitably the final nail in the coffin that doomed the Franklin Expedition. But what if there was fray in the threads of fate and characters were not bound by their narrative role as villain? A tale of stargazing, false prophets, mad dreams, shedding pretences and just maybe falling in love.

    (This is going to be a bit of a slow burn but they will fuck eventually I promise it’s just very cold and one of them is Extremely repressed. Supposed to be read as a follow up to Men Like Beasts by Adsecula.)

    Summary

    “What would good Sir John say, if he knew what obscenities occupied your mind? If only Sir John could see you now, the spectacle you make of yourself, displayed here, dripping with my spend and still begging to be used.”

    Francis has so few delights these days. The particular rosy blush that comes over James’s face when embarrassment knifes through him is one of them, and Francis seeks it unsparingly.

    ***
    Just six weeks into the voyage, Francis and James have fallen into a certain easy understanding—but it's not made to last.

    Summary

    Inspired by @spader7's Terror Metal AU -- Sequel to Gjoa Haven Tour

    Thomas Jopson, comfortable now in his role as band manager, is looking forward to the other side of life in the music business: the fallow period between tours. Rest and recovery. Songwriting. Perhaps some light shenanigans and petty crime. You know. Just to keep things fresh. No doubt the rowdy Teras will be itching to get back on the road soon enough.

    But before then, the Teras will have to face new threats from unexpected corners. The landed gentry, for one.

    Themselves, for another.

    -.-. .... /.---- ..... 

    Ch15: BLOWOUT

    John and Ned play their respective new material for the rest of the band. They've both grown, musically, and evolved in their time apart.

    Unfortunately, it's clear they haven't evolved in the same direction.

    CW for descriptions of intense mental and emotional states, intense argument.

    BIG ol fight here, friends. If it gets to be too much feel free to skip to the last section where it gets sweet and funny again.

    Summary

    “My heart for Miss Cracroft’s,” James explained, forcing his voice to sound certain and calm even if he was quickly feeling anything but. Crozier kept staring at him, a thunderstorm growing in his face. The furious silence reigned between them for another minute before James added, “You... eat the hearts of the… young and beautiful…”

    The Wizard Crozier’s stare was hard and unbreakable. James could feel the snappings of electricity in the air around them, the hair standing up on the back of his neck. He could feel it now, the sheer power in this man.

    “You don’t know anything.”

    Summary

    The long and the short of it was: Francis had grown a moustache. It looked terrible. It made James want to rip off his clothes. It made no sense. He could not allow this to continue.

    Summary

    What was a scar, then, other than proof that one had survived? That he’d survived the pain and blood and tears, and risen up again to live another day?

    James reflects on the miracle of his recovery.

    (Also, on his unslakeable thirst for Francis Crozier.)

    Summary

    James looked at the ad. He looked over at the leak, and then back at the ad. It didn’t seem very legit, especially the part at the bottom, some glittery graphic that reminded him of MySpace and made his head hurt: “CASH OR BITCOIN ONLY!!!!!!”

    A small wet splash startled him. Part of the ceiling had come loose and fallen into the bucket. Fuck.

    James had only the barest outline of what bitcoin was. He’d need to go find an ATM. Sighing, he dialed the number.

    James has a hole in the roof of his houseboat. He hires someone off Craigslist to fix it. Now he has two holes in his roof.

    Summary

    “It’s plain what he needs, Francis. The question is whether he realizes it or not.”

    “And what does he need?”

    “Oh, the usual.” James is grinning now, impish as a schoolboy. “Sexual stimulation, carnal discipline, perhaps a good paddling here and there.“

    Edward Little comes to visit his old captains in the summer of 1853.

    Summary

    The town of Erebus is dying. The mine's dried up, trains are few and far between, and the churchyard has more graves than there are people in town. Then the weather shifts—a foreboding grey-blue line on the horizon promising an early, brutal winter.

    And there are monsters in the woods.

    Summary

    James bit into a laden slice of toast with the undamaged side of his mouth. “I thought we agreed that thinking was very dangerous,” he said, and though his voice was light Francis could feel a weight behind it. It was a weight made up of sleepless nights and crying jags; of Francis punching a solid wall and of James shouting himself hoarse; of the unbearable social calls and wrenching letters and pitying looks which they could not avoid. They carried a great many heavy things with them, now.

    London, 1848: Francis and James try to put themselves back together.

    Chapter 2: When Francis returned to James with a gin and tonic and a lemon water for himself, he was confronted by the sight of silver-haired, gold-toothed Le Vesconte occupying the chair next to James. This was as expected, but did not improve his mood any.

    Against his better judgement, Francis Crozier goes to a kink convention in Canada to promote his new book. It's the dead of winter, and he has a vague suspicion he should have stayed home.

    Then he meets James Fitzjames, and confirms his suspicion is correct.

    Summary

    Things you should have by the age of thirty (according to the meme Tozer posted in the group chat):

    - a dog
    - anxiety
    - a dog with anxiety

    By that metric, Ed Little is crushing it. By every other, he very much isn't.

    [Modern AU in which Ed has a rescue dog and meets a handsome PA at the park.]

    [Ch21: in which Ed meets the in-law.]

    Summary

    Day breaks over Greenhithe as surely as it does over all of England. Months from now, they’ll grow tired of never ending sunlight, he expects, only to miss it terribly some months later still, shrouded in darkness for weeks on end. He knows what to expect, but he doubts many aboard do.

    a.k.a. The Franklin Expedition with slightly less hubris and a little more luck.
