    Summary

    Not even a small love could be well hidden, and Stephen's was certainly not small anymore. Had it ever been, when faced with such a giant as Jack Aubrey?

    No, it had not. Certainly not now, after everything, at the end of the world, sitting in a ruined street with ruined hands and a ruined heart.

    He took a deep breath: cologne, again. Jack, again.

    Groaning theatrically, Jack got to his feet. He extended a hand to Stephen, who still sat motionless and stiff on the cold pavement. A lone street lamp illuminated the short curls of Jack's hair, which was growing out over his ears now, and haloed him, so tender in the black night and gently smiling.

    Stephen took the proffered hand.

    Summary

    “Commodore Horatio Hornblower, Captain William Bush, may I present to you our ship’s surgeon and my dearest friend, Doctor Stephen Maturin.” Jack is brightly gleaming once more, delighted to have such esteemed guests visiting with news of foreign shores. He waits impatiently for the murmured introductions, and doesn’t miss the way Stephen shakes Bush’s hand first, very carefully and gently, and nobody misses the way Stephen’s fingers crook even worse than Bush.
    “This is our man Styles,” Commodore Hornblower introduces the fellow. Styles touches his cap respectfully and ignores the fiery warning in Captain Bush’s glare.
    Killick grumbles in the cabin loud enough to earn a quirked eyebrow from Captain Bush. “An’ it’s the Doctor shouldn’t be out in the cold, ‘e says, an’ keepin’ ‘im out there an’ all.”

    Summary

    This meeting was crucial if they were to secure their futures. Neither Stede nor Ed wanted to return to outright piracy and with the new governor in Nassau, the writing was on the wall for the end of the old pirate republic.

    Summary

    “I am not too heavy?” Stephen wheezed faintly from his side. He was going limp. Alarm beat in Jack’s heart.

    “Only as heavy as a couple of raisins.” Jack crouched down and gathered Stephen into his arms: the tense feeling in his chest grew as he noticed that Stephen didn’t so much as protest. “Stephen-”

    “Hush,” Stephen whispered. He patted Jack’s arm, head lolling back against Jack’s shoulder. He was growing paler by the second, even as Jack carried him down below. “May God set a flower on your head, Jack Aubrey, and He…He knows I have loved you very much.”

    And then he was a dead weight in Jack’s arms.

    Summary

    Stephen noted this pattern often in surly patients cured of a lingering pain: a miraculous improvement in temperament, earthly angels the morning after they damned him to hell. This did not bother him, of course. He was soothed at the reminder that man was a creature of circumstance, and that improvement of the spirit was tied to the improvement of the material conditions. In nature, in man, in society: where pain fermented, evils brewed.
    What bothered him was the disproportionate gratitude towards him, personally. And it bothered him, too, that he could not wish this sailor a proper goodnight, because he did not remember the sailor's name.

    Stephen and Jack talk on a cold night during their first cruise on the Sophie.

    Summary

    Jack did not faint from blood loss until the Polychrest was sunk entirely and the Fanciulla had exchanged its French colors for the English. The wheel was heavily christened with his blood when he fell against it, dripping red as St. George's cross.

    Summary

    Stephen's needle flashed in the lantern-light as he worked, again and again quickly, well-practiced and indefatigable precision. The needle-point swam through Jack’s shoulder as Jack swam through water, smooth and efficient, and Stephen paused only to occasionally dab away new blood.
    His abilities of surgical precision were rivaled only, he considered with some strange muted pride, by his marksmanship with a pistol.

    Summary

    Stephen took hold of Jack's face again, but not this time to cherish. He held him still—Jack making a mild complaining sound—and moved back far enough for the lantern-light to fall upon Jack and bring him into focus. There—there, on his jaw, where Stephen's hands had grabbed him—a faint smudge of the silvery dust. And on the side of his neck where the shirt lay loose, another trace of it, glittering like assassins' knives; Stephen remembered how he had combed all of his treacherous fingers through Jack's hair, stealthily savouring him. Contaminating him.

    Summary

    The drinks were already poured by the time Stephen Maturin arrived on the doorstep, looking drenched and murderous, holding a bag over his head with one hand and clutching the reins of his horse with the other.

    “Why, I think you’ve made a wrong turning, sir,” said Jack Aubrey, making to shut the door on him. “The molly-house is up the road.”

    “Yes, yes, you have a prestigious wit,” said Stephen with blistering dignity. “Suffice to say I could not make London by nightfall. Now pray, give me a drink before I expire.”

    Summary

    “Stephen, use your spectacles, tell me if I don’t mistake what I read.”

    Maturin took the paper from across the table. “Your eyes do not deceive you, dear. You are made full Admiral, Admiral of the Blue, effective this week. I give you joy of it.”

    “Admiral of the Blue,” repeated Jack, wonderingly. “Can it really be so. It seems just yesterday…” And here he gazed off, thinking, as Stephen was, of the very moment he had first raised a blue pennant at his mizzen-mast.
