    Summary

    Cornelius Hickey was inevitably the final nail in the coffin lid 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

    Jopson shut himself in Irving's quarters.

    "I have asked you here as a simple courtesy to say— that I wish only the best for the two of you, that you have my blessing." John’s traitorous eyes felt the prick of tears; he buried his attention in his shelf of books.

    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 don’t think so. It’s 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.

    Summary

    “What would happen to this skin of yours, if you were killed?”

    “Killed?” Billy looks up sharply. That’s got his attention.

    “If something happened,” Hickey says casually, inspecting the red skin on his knuckles.

    “I don’t know,” Billy says, after a few moments’ thought. “What would happen to your skin?”

    *

    In a remote Scottish fishing village, Hickey comes across a mysterious stranger with an irresistible secret.

    Summary

    It is all he wants, all he’s ever wanted really, to feel the chaos swirling within him unleashed in the most brutal manner and bask in the all-consuming shame of it, feel his very skin recoil from and embrace it at once, to be contained and thus burn to ash and afterwards remold anew.

    Unease curls in John’s gut, and he clutches at his coat, digging his thumb against one of the dull metal buttons.

    Summary

    He fancies himself a solitary figure on the light-drenched stage of the Royal Opera House in London, the darkness beyond the bound of the stage utterly devoid of any human presence, and it is such a horrible, petrifying feeling that George smiles silently into Edward’s hair, breathes in the stale, deathlike odor of him. When George closes his eyes, he is glad that he is alive.


    George and Edward live and struggle in the aftermath of their rescue.

    Summary

    All for one.

    “What,” George puffs over clicking metal, using his heavier weapon to shunt John’s sword aside and press forward, “are we wearing to Fitzjames’ costume party then?” He blocks and keeps pushing until John is teetering on the edge of the piste, and then swears and has to dance backwards when John does something complicated with his wrist that ends up in a careful backbend and the point of his foil under George’s nose.

    Summary

    The weird part is Ed, sitting across the desk from his boss at ten past six while the office dims in increments behind him. He’s holding a cooling styrofoam cup of coffee on his lap with both hands so that if he spills it, he’ll get it all over his pants rather than on the paperwork for the latest Barrow kerfuffle. On the other side sits Crozier, his own mug in his hands. It says #1 Bridesmaid.
    “You know why I’ve sent for you, Edward?”
    Ed eyes the mug. “Excel’s acting up again?”
