    Summary

    The dreams had always been with him.

    Since he was a child, Thomas would wake at night, images from a time long past dancing in front of his vision. Some were beautiful, peaceful even. His favorites were the ones with another younger boy; they played in a garden, or climbed trees together. There is a woman too, sometimes; darning socks by candlelight, or singing softly under her breath as she tended to supper. She would take Tom to what looked like a farmers market, basket swinging on her arm. Those dreams left him feeling warm and content upon waking.

    Then, there were the other dreams.

    Summary

    In the last camp Francis had found one survivor, said survivor having had done terrible awful things to survive so long. Now even when they have returned to England, the horrors that plague his former steward are still so fresh.

    In other words, I had Edward drag Jopson with him to the last camp trying to keep them both alive and Francis learns the horrific things that transpired within the camp as Jopson learns to cope and recover from the horrors in the arctic and to grieve without the man who loved him.

    This is a story about the long lasting effects of a traumatic journey and the struggle to find meaning in life again.

    Summary

    During a particular night when Francis Crozier was in a foul mood, already lost in alcoholic stewing, Jopson makes the mistake of spilling his feelings for the captain during a heated exchange which sent the Irishman in a rage that no one would ever expect from the man.

    After a violent struggle halted by the help of Mr. Blanky and some of the Lieutenants, the agonizing shame of disappointing the man he cares so much for and the pain of rejection leaves Thomas Jopson a sad broken man trying to ignore his inner turmoil and continue his duties while Francis struggles to stop denying his own feeling for his young steward.

    Summary

    He likes being hungry. It sharpens his wits. It keeps him focussed.

    Or perhaps he’s just used to it, like the cold. Set your mind straight and you can get used to anything.

    ...

    My take on Hickey's character - present takes place on Terror (beginning in Greenland) with lots of morbid Victorian poverty in the form of childhood flashbacks.

    Summary

    A small personal choice leads to Lieutenant Irving narrowly avoiding death by stabbing.
    Unfortunately, Fate is keen to demonstrate all the other causes of death it has on a special winter discount.
    And worst of all, his continued survival now depends on the very man who attempted to murder him.
    (The slow burn fix-it AU no one asked for!)

    Summary

    Edward Little has a history of bad break-ups set against dramatic Arctic backdrops. The best way to avoid this happening with Jopson is, perhaps, to go to the Arctic without him - even if it means that he'll have to spend the next six months alone.
