    Summary

    “You know,” a voice sounded next to him. “When I’m at a party and I don’t know anyone, I like to find someone who doesn’t look like they want to be here and see if they can fill me in on gossip. Or judge people based on their drink choices or sweaters.”

    Stephen turned to appraise the stranger.

    “Alexander McDonald,” he said. Tall, although shorter than Stephen. Most everyone was shorter than him. Sandy blond hair, kind of an old-fashioned haircut, sideburns, and an easy smile. Not holding out his hand to shake it. Stephen liked that. No assumptions of familiarity.

    “Dr. Stanley.”

    “Well, Dr. Stanley, do you have a first name? Or shall I just refer to you as doctor all evening?”

    - - -

    There are two kinds of people: people who love holiday parties, and Dr. Stanley. Too bad he's just met a cute oncologist who happens to be the former.

    Summary

    “Do the men still speak of ghosts?” Francis asks.

    Jopson goes very still. His front teeth sink down into his bottom lip, looking as though he’s forcing himself to remain silent until he sorts out his thoughts. Finally, after a too-long pause: “Why do you ask?”

    Summary

    “Nightmares?” Francis had asked, both of them on the floor, seated awkwardly. It was uncomfortable, but he did not want to get up, to move away from James, to whom he was now tethered, regardless of whether he wanted to be.

    “And guilt,” James replied, nodding and looking down, a finger digging into the rug.

    - - -

    Francis and James return from the arctic. They're not the only ones.

    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

    Years ago, an infamous white whale attacked Captain Crozier's ship and killed nearly everyone on board. The captain, overwhelmed with grief and thoughts of revenge, started hunting the creature and never stopped.
    Among the survivors of that first voyage was John Bridgens, who is about to set sail again with Crozier, now a shadow of the brilliant captain John once knew. Henry Peglar, returning to his true love - the sea -, meets Bridgens in an inn the evening before the Terror, Endgland's most famous whaler, ships.

    Between years of whaling, dubious shipmates, new friends, and the ever-present threat of the great white whale, some sailors might just find something, or someone, worth fighting for.

    "Thou saw’st the locked lovers when leaping from their flaming ship; heart to heart they sank beneath the exulting wave; true to each other, when heaven seemed false to them"
    - Herman Melville

    Summary

    The dreams had always been with him.

    Since he was a child, Thomas would wake at night, images from a time long past dancing in front of his vision. Some were beautiful, peaceful even. His favorites were the ones with another younger boy; they played in a garden, or climbed trees together. There is a woman too, sometimes; darning socks by candlelight, or singing softly under her breath as she tended to supper. She would take Tom to what looked like a farmers market, basket swinging on her arm. Those dreams left him feeling warm and content upon waking.

    Then, there were the other dreams.

    Summary

    This story is more heavily influenced by the original novel The Terror than by the TV show so some of the references and descriptions may be unfamiliar to fans of the show. However, I hope all fans of the core story can still enjoy.

    Following the demise of all his men, and joining Silna at her side in her duty to the Tuunbaq, Francis Crozier has cast away his past to start anew with his family in the Arctic. Thinking that he has left England and the navy behind his new world soon collides with the old one when he is called to assist Silna's people in making a stance to retain their lands and resources against the encroaching British Empire. Comfronted with old faces, and with the great white demon coming every closer, Crozier will soon be forced to fight in a battle for his family's survial.

    Summary

    In the last camp Francis had found one survivor, said survivor having had done terrible awful things to survive so long. Now even when they have returned to England, the horrors that plague his former steward are still so fresh.

    In other words, I had Edward drag Jopson with him to the last camp trying to keep them both alive and Francis learns the horrific things that transpired within the camp as Jopson learns to cope and recover from the horrors in the arctic and to grieve without the man who loved him.

    This is a story about the long lasting effects of a traumatic journey and the struggle to find meaning in life again.
