    Summary

    He set the book aside, and scoffed at the second one in the pile. Coming Up For Air. A bit on the nose, that, presenting him with the story of the man taking himself back to his childhood home, looking to recapture the golden years. You can’t ever go home again. That’s what Orwell was trying to say with that one. Well, Alfred had come home. And he was going to have to make it work.

     

    Captain Alfred Broadhurst (PhD) has a new life in his old town; new flat, new job with new students, and a new book to write too. Patrick Butcher, university librarian, part-time novelist and doting dad, is struggling with his new book and feeling a bit melancholy in a way he can't quite put his finger on.

    It isn't going to take much to end up in each other's orbits.

    Summary

    The thing with endings was that they were always preceded by a beginning. It just so happened that beginnings were as a rule, almost always better than what followed them, unfortunately enough.

    A new programme replaces the Captain's precious Tank Battles, about life after the war and he is reminded of the person he was, and the love he once had. We follow him as his mind bounces back and forth between existing in the present and missing what is no longer. Yet no amount of pining can bring the past back... can it?

    Summary

    Alison stumbled from bed, grim and grumbling as she got dressed, and stomped up to the attic with a look of utter disinterest plastered across her face and a dearth of dark thoughts churning through her mind. As she swung open the narrow door, she closed her eyes and hoped that somehow, magically, the chaos strewn about the room had magically sorted itself overnight.

    She cracked an eyelid and sighed. No miracles for her, it would seem.

    *Mike goes out of town, leaving Alison home alone for the weekend. Unfortunately, the time to herself is not quite as relaxing as it initially seemed.*

    Summary

    The Captain has been alone with his thoughts for far too long. Pat thinks it's time that changed, and it just so happens to take a full-blown argument to reach that conclusion. Sometimes, being told it's okay is all it takes for a dam to finally break.

    Or: It starts with Pat telling the Captain to naff off, and it all rather escalates from there.

    (Set during the events of 2x02 "About Last Night")
