    Summary

    The Arctic is another world to the rest of the Earth. In all of the other lands that James has sailed to and walked across, a compass can be relied upon to always spin to North. A setting sun will rise at the break of day. A bear is only a bear.

    A man, once dead, does not rise again.

    Summary

    Under the light of the whale oil lamps, Henry’s hair is darkened to a glossy black and the lines that go from his nostrils and frame his mouth are filled in with shadow. In this, from out of the dusky cove that is his face in the evening, his eyes glitter.

    His gaze goes down to his arm, where they touch, and lingers. He parts his lips. “John.”

     

    (John and Henry, finding each other in the early years)

    Summary

    "What've you got, Blanky?" A barked Irish call reaches them from afar, and Thomas gives up on opening his eyes. This isn't his crew, he doesn't understand what's happening. 

    "Ship's boy, probably. Just about alive. Says his name's Thomas."

    "Jesus, not another one. Bring him aboard."

    [Pirate AU in which shipwrecked navy boy Tom Jopson finds a new family at sea]

    [Ch8: in which losses are counted, Thomas is frozen, and Crozier and Edward help him thaw.]

    Summary

    September, 1979.
    Sir John Franklin, regional director of Terrebus Inc., has cherry-picked a selection of his staff to attend a morale-boosting corporate retreat at a mountain lodge in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. It promises to be a relaxing weekend for everyone – but all is not as it seems. When mysterious occurrences start happening around the lodge, some of the staff begin to suspect that it is haunted, and the sudden disappearance of a senior staff member only exacerbates everyone’s fears. And with a freak blizzard threatening to snow them in, the Terrebus team has no choice but to face the mysterious forces of the lodge.
    Will they be able to survive the blizzard long enough to get help and solve the mystery of what’s stalking them? Or will the Terrebus corporate retreat end in bloody tragedy?

    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

    Summary

    Not that Henry was an exhibitionist, strictly; certainly not like James and Dundy, who actively enjoyed exhibiting themselves, nor even like Solomon, who didn’t seem to care either way whether the door was open or closed. But there was something thrilling about someone else seeing Henry and John together, like somehow John’s attraction to Henry would be made more real if someone else witnessed it: like John’s conspicuous, proud, irrefutable gayness would somehow affirm Henry’s own masculinity.

    Summary

    “Do I get to undress you now?” John asks, slowly sliding his hand over the silky soft fabric, rucking it up on Harry’s thigh—until Harry smooths the fabric back down, looking up at John with a playful smile.

    “How easy do you think I am?” Harry replies, grinning, as if he does not drop to his knees the second John even so much as looks like he might want his cock sucked.
