    Summary

    There is a theory that in order to have a stable and happy life, you must have a stable and happy childhood first. Phillip Carlyle can vouch for this theory. Growing up ‘different’, Phillip can see how it has shaped and affected his life, still does. Years of accumulated ice forging around his heart has rendered him cold and wary towards anyone who attempts contact.

    Summary

    Everyone is either a Dom or a sub. It is an ingrained part of who you are.

    Phillip first told his parents that he was a sub when he was five years old. But the Carlyle's will not have a sub for a son, even if it means molding him into something he was never meant to be.

    Summary

    Something was off with Phillip. He had first noticed it a few days ago, when Phillip came over his weekly dinner with their family, but something was clearly off now. Phillip was always a bundle of rambunctious energy, always moving, always helping the troupe, whether it was with rehearsal or with the tent or with anything his circus family needed. But now, Phillip had slowed down. He was forcing a happiness Phineas didn’t understand, and refused to answer the question they had all been asking him lately.

     

    “Are you alright?”

     

    A laugh and a redirection, often at the expense of the asker, perhaps even a roll of the eyes, little parts of him they had come to expect as his nature flowing freely, without pause. That had been what assuaged them, all of them it seemed, Anne, Lettie, Charity, himself. Phillip was still himself so it must mean that Phillip was okay, even if he hadn’t answered the question.

    Summary

    Phillip Carlyle joins P. T. Barnum's circus... and meets Anne Wheeler who sweeps him off his feet in more than one way.
    As a pretty boy from a rich home, can he find his way in the world and break free of society's chains and expectations?

    Story starts when Phillip joins the circus and will continue until after the end of the movie. I have a full outline ready, but this is currently updating slowly, because there's real life stuff happening.

    Summary

    Phillip Carlyle's plan was to white knuckle his way through life, one hour at a time. Lucky for him that P.T Barnum burst into his life just in time.

    Summary

    Phillip can tell, as soon as he gets to the circus, that everyone knows. He sees it in the sympathetic tilt of Anne's head from where she and WD are rehearsing on one of the lower platforms. He hears it in Charles's greeting, small and sincere when it should be caustic and droll. He feels it in Lettie's stare, warm and worried while she adjusts Constantine's cape.

    Summary

    Lettie Lutz is not a woman to suffer fools gladly. But there are exceptions to every rule. This rule's exceptions are named PT Barnum and Phillip Carlyle.

    On a dusty lot down by the docks, Lettie mends the circus in more ways than one.

    Barlyle or Gen, pick your poison.

    Summary

    Growing up a female while also in the lower class was never easy. Whatever you wanted to do was immediately shut down by the 'stronger, more capable' men, which was a shame considering your one dream was to join a performing group of sorts and be the show stopper. So, what happens when a certain P.T. Barnum happens upon you in a bar late at night?

    I have tagged this as gen and with no archive warnings as this applies to a majority of the chapters, but any warnings that are needed for certain prompts are in the contents page and chapter summary.

    Summary

    “Every night I went out, and all I could ever see was disappointment. They wanted you, not some half-assed imitation who had to drown his nerves before the first show.” He laughs despite himself, and its hollowness is more disconcerting than the tears shining on his cheeks. “Hell, I wanted you. I needed you, and you were gone.”

    Or, Phillip was heartbroken when Phineas left on tour.

    Summary

    He would never live with himself if he was the reason the Barnum Circus failed. He would never forgive himself if all of Phineas’ hard work was ruined by him.

    Phillip's first show as the new permanent ringmaster.

    Summary

    Phillip can’t help but wonder how there could be such a thing as Heaven when the godliest being in all planes of existence is currently encircling his arms around his shoulders, thawing the seas of his world.

    This—the steady rise and fall of his chest, the feeling of his fingers pressing ever so slightly into Phillip’s back—is almost enough to allow Phillip to forget what day it is.

    Almost.

    Summary

    Phillip could still see the flames when he closed his eyes. He could still hear the crackling and popping of the fire. Could feel the heat, the breathless feeling in his chest, the sharp pain of the flames licking his skin. He had gotten good at acting like it didn't bother him.

     

    And of course, having training to be calm and proper in public situations helped greatly. It was the one thing he could thank his mother and father for.
