    Summary

    Every week, Francis slips away into the darkness to seek his greatest comfort. Neither him nor the whore he rests his weary head upon know anything about each other, only that this little ritual has their hearts tied. But as hard times fall upon the both of them, their entanglement grows into a dangerous knot.

    A story in which Jopson is a crossdressing male prostitute and Francis continues to get himself into messes because of the person he loves is just out of reach.

    Summary

    It’s one of the first true, sunny spring days that year, the sun bearing down on them without a cloud to disturb it. Their blanket covers almost the entirety of the Hoars’ small garden. A carton of strawberries sits half-eaten and forgotten next to them, the two of them dressed in nothing but shirts as the house is to be blissfully empty for the next several hours.

    Summary

    Jopson-survives-alternate-endings are fun. So here's my take on it. What if Jopson's death was stalled by a few days thanks to Crozier healing the infection in his wounded leg? This is a non-canon compliant sequel to my previous Jopson-centric Fic, Curse For Loyalty.

    Summary

    James can't stop caressing the fabric of the dress. 
    He knows it's not the softest thing he's ever touched, but it feels like it: the silk is of such high quality that it feels pleasantly fresh under his trembling touch and looks almost wet to the eye, for how shiny and sleek it is. The deep green shade Francis has picked -which was incidentally complementing the deep red blush on his ears so well,- makes the gown look like a precious jewel itself, so much that James almost feels covered in a cascade of tiny, shining emeralds.

    Summary

    He remembered the way the crowds had pushed forward and reporters stuck the too-bright, flashing lightbulbs of cameras in their faces as Francis helped him down the gangplank; as Edward Little had near carried Thomas Jopson as he could barely stand; as John Bridgens had needed to shield Henry Peglar from the cameras as he’d been so close to fainting, overwhelmed by it all.

    The images of their crew — unwell and near dying, and the ones that had died — flashed before his mind’s eye once more.

    “I didn’t know dancing could be—” he pauses, hand waving through the air as he looks for a word not as strong as enjoyable. “—enjoyable.”
