    Summary

    To say that living as a homosexual in the 1940s was a difficult thing to hide would be an understatement. Having feelings for a fellow soldier was an even trickier thing to hide, and to have that secret exposed to that very person was mortifying. However, the Captain didn’t realise that this would change both of their lives forever, literally.

    Summary

    The ghosts have been pestering Alison for new song recommendations; turns out that there’s only so many times you can host a music club before you start running out of songs to share. Hence why Alison was now sitting by the TV with her laptop creating playlists for each of the ghosts, filling them with songs that she thought they might enjoy.

    When a song about LGBTQ+ couples from history whose stories were largely hidden from the history books shows up in the recommended songs on the Captain’s playlist, Alison and some of the other ghosts encourage the Captain to share some stories about his previous Lieutenant who left for the North African front nearly 80 years ago.

     
    (A song fic based on ‘History Hates Lovers’ by Oublaire)

    Summary

    Since he was a child, no matter what happened to him or his family, The Captain kept meeting William Havers. But that meant he kept losing him too. From children coping with the Great War, young men navigating the intoxicating world of the Roaring Twenties, and adults seeing the impending threat of another war, The Captain hopes he can find a way to keep Havers by his side this time.

    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

    "hey, i just realised that you've never mentioned your family before." alison pointed out a mist the conversation. everyone stopped, volume going to zero as they turned to face the captain. his normal, emotionless face became pained, just for a second, and reverted to it's stern self.

    "i never had one." he said monotonously.

    that wasn't expected.
