    Summary

    Edward Little returns to his childhood home after over a decade spent up north.

    Some things are as he left them, the house in the same state it was when his parents passed, as grand and as haunted, but change has begun to creep upon the sleepy Louisiana town: there's a new sheriff and whispers of strange goings-on in the woods; his childhood friend is preaching to a vanishing congregation and someone has been stealing snakes from the nature reserve.

    Maybe he wouldn't mind it all so much if the boy he used to like wasn't holding out on him, and if every morning wasn't bringing dead birds on his front porch.

    Summary

    “Who still wears costumes?” Francis asked.

    “Not a costume party,” James countered. “But if you like, when we get back, I can put on the devil horns and nothing else.”

    - - -

    The Halloween party does not go according to plan. Hickey is almost entirely to blame.

    One Week of Terror Day 2: "We shouldn't be here."

    (James does not in fact put on the devil horns and nothing else, at least in this story)

    Tom Jopson thinks he can do something about that.

    Summary

    ‘Hickey had found Billy Gibson in his cabin, and drawn the curtain across almost lazily, to give them both a bit of privacy. He knew an open curtain would arouse less suspicion than a closed one – but it was all bustle as the watch changed over, and besides, the officers who might want for Gibson at this hour were either on deck or abed. He’d checked. Lieutenant Irving with his sanctimonious little head stuck in a Bible somewhere in the officer’s mess or his cabin. Lieutenants Little and Hodgson on deck, a fine pair, one with a face like a kicked puppy and the other like a puppy that ought to be kicked.

    So, they’d not be disturbed. Not for a few hours.’

    Or, Gibson cuts Hickey’s hair and gets a good caulking in return. Featuring a chat with Jopson, regarding Hickey's less-than-inconspicuous nocturnal activities.

    Summary

    After four years out of the game Thomas Jopson wouldn’t know a good man if it hit him in the back of the head – he just never imagined that would be taken so literally.

    Well, almost.

    Summary

    After more than a year on furlough, Lieutenant Edward Little gathers all his courage and pays a visit to a scandalously specialized bawdy house that has intrigued him since he first heard of it. There, he meets Mr. Thomas Jopson, a former Naval steward who has taken on alternate employment as a means to stay near his ailing mother.

    Edward quickly falls in love with the remarkable man, but is faced with the uncomfortable question: can somebody who makes love for a living ever really love him back? And even if he does, can there ever be a future for them?

    Written for The Terror Big Bang. Art by Sasheenka here and here.

    Summary

    “What was that thing about Cornelius?”

    “Nothing, just—" Will inhaled; dropped his arms. “A mistake.”

    Irving dropped his gaze. “Oh. Good. I mean—" He looked at Will again, his eyes strangely bright for the low lighting of Will’s bedroom. “Goodnight, William.”

    Summary

    He never truly trusts anyone on this ship, makes sure of it. Still, his trepidation concerning Peglar’s reporting to superiors fades quickly. Cornelius sees the fine line he walks between compliance and rule-breaking, envies his freedom to do so. He contemplates this as he watches Peglar reading in the mess like always, day in, day out.

    He has been paying more attention than he’d ever confess.
