    Summary

    His inner compass had pointed toward James as its true north since they’d met in China in ’42. It was that selfsame impulse to be near him that had Henry accepting a post as James’ second aboard the Clio. The same impulse that had him following James to the arctic—literally to the ends of the earth. Following him to Brighton hardly signified in the grand scheme of distances he’d traveled for the man.

    After his affair with Sophia Cracroft sours and Lady Franklin refuses his offer to captain the recovery expedition of Sir John's remains, Henry impulsively travels to Brighton to see James, whom he hasn't spoken to in months.

    He had fewer words than usual in every little thing. The whale had eaten them up, taking them southwards to the Pacific.

    The worry was evident in Ross’s voice and Fitzjames had to make an effort to not grimace. “Ill,” he said at last. “Too ill to command."

    --

    Summary

    “Good evening,” the man said gruffly.

    “Good evening,” he answered, offering his most charming smirk.

    “We’ve seen you around before, right?” the man asked with a note of suspicion as he came to stand by the boy, lifting one broad hand to the child’s dark hair. James didn’t begrudge him the tone; he was, after all, a strange man talking to his son at the park.

    “Yes,” he nodded easily, and then gestured in the general direction of his street. “I just moved in a few days ago.”

    ———
    After a chance meeting at the park, James strikes up a friendship (and maybe more) with his new neighbour.

    Summary

    “You know,” Francis said, later that evening. “I told William that we were living as husband and wife, but we haven’t really had anything like a wedding, have we. I only started calling you Lady Crozier when we went to Portugal, because anything else would have been suspect.”

    James looked up from the sketch he’d been doing, Francis in profile. “Francis… we can’t. There isn’t a church in the world that would marry us.”

    Summary

    “If you want to take her in I can put out word for a wet nurse.”

    There’s an unspoken statement of, ‘This child will be sent to orphanage or foundling’s home if you don’t,’ behind William’s words. With its mother dead and the father unknown, the baby’s situation was even more precarious that James’ had been. Despite being new returned from the Arctic and still very much suffering the after effects, there was simply no way his answer could be anything other than yes.
