    Summary

    The label has spoken and nobody else seems to have a problem with the interweaving tours that have been planned for both Terror & Fury and The Erebus. So he’ll just have to put up with it, and the irritating human being known as James Fitzames. Any more complicated feelings Francis might have about it will be duly squashed.

    Or so he tells himself.

    Summary

    He loves this feeling - to be bright, made new with the morning, as the Captain and his Lieutenants slumber on in their cabins, the last of the night watches still pacing fretfully above. He stretches; hands to the sky, hands to the ground, feels his back pop and settle.

    The tin he takes in his palm reverently, the sweetest part of the whole morning, works the lid open with a gentle twist. This part he must never hurry, must be kind and gentle to his body as he dips his fingers into the air warmed grease, slides them back and into himself.

    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.

    Summary

    Henry walks home by the cliff path that snakes its’ way up from the marina, his jacket slung over rolled up shirt sleeves. Shadowed light dances off lean and freckled arms, browned by sun and sea, a softly lopsided smile caught in tired eyes. He had left the cottage in the soft, grey light of early dawn, gently tracing the lines of John’s cheek with fingers that still hold the ghosts of grease and fish guts long after they have been scrubbed clean.

    Summary

    When Henry meets John at the library, he can't shake the feeling they've met before. But the new job Harry helped him get at the local university, and his returning nightmares are enough to keep the idea off his mind-- for a while at least.

    Summary

    The evergreen wallpaper doesn’t help, the upper corridor turned into a close tunnel, cradling Harry and his group as he leads them ever deeper into the bowels of the building. There's some grumbling from behind him, but in the long drawn out evenings of December there’s a strange peace to the house that entrances Harry. He knows John feels it too, perhaps why he always seems to find him hidden in some shadowed corner, until it becomes second nature for Harry to look for John whenever he finds him in this part of the house.

    Maybe this tour will come across him, crouched over a display or wandering around a corner, more a part of the house itself than an employee within it.

    Summary

    Invited to spend reading week at his boyfriend's dad's house, Harry leaps at the opportunity to escape the city for a few days. He doesn't realise what trouble he'll get into.

    John is older of course, slower in his enjoyment of things, patient in a way that Tommy hasn't quite learnt yet. It sets Harry’s heart racing, not to mention that John is strong, broad and thick about the waist in a way that makes Harry's fingers itch to touch. So it’s not terribly surprising when he finds his eye a-wandering.

    Summary

    Harry and John find what ghosts are haunting them.

    --

    “Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death.”

    “Is that what’s written there?” Asks Mary.

    “Can’t you read it?”

    “It’s all messed up! I thought it was Russian, like.”

    “The letters are all backwards.” Harry notices it for the first time now.

    “Like Peglarese,” says John. He touches the small of Harry’s back. “Is anything else in there?”

    Harry takes out two locks of hair, reddish and brittle, powdery under his fingers. Nauseous from it, he puts them back, and as he does it his fingers meet paper, and he takes out of the box a neatly folded parcel.

    Summary

    Summary

    John had been gripped with a migraine all day. It started not long after Henry had left the house to meet with other Wanderer mates, who happened to be in London as well—a small network of support, people who could hopefully better understand what he went through than John ever could.

    In a way, he was grateful Henry was away and therefore could not see him like this. Sweat-soaked nightshirt, face pressed against a pillow to avoid light as much as possible, despite the drawn curtains, hair plastered against his forehead, eyes undoubtedly bleary and unfocused.

    It was in the darkness of the early night that it began to relent. And precisely when Henry came home.

    Summary

    Pregnant by Cornelius, Billy gets to know the immense pain of being abandoned by his baby’s father and constantly abused by men who see him as a disgusting freak of nature; but he also gets to bask in the warmth from the love and protection of those men who do not think so. It is everywhere around him, in so many little things. In a modest garment and in an expensive garment; in tales of the stars and in tales of the sea.
