    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)

    Summary

    Crozier shouldn’t have joined a research trip run by Fitzjames, his sworn enemy. He should have salvaged his reputation while he had the chance. And above all, he should have paid more attention to the news coming from Wuhan.

    But you know what they say about hindsight.

    OR: The silly/serious AU where they're all in a research ship stranded at sea during the pandemic.

    Now with footnotes!

    Summary

    Hickey’s waist is pure, fevered sinew under his palms; the hard neat planes of his torso blaze through the cloth of his undershirt. He’s a quick and savage grasping thing, like a little grassfire. Colored, too, like a pale field burning: in some light he appears as pallid as dried grass, in others vital as pulling flame. Slowly he backs up against the table, pulling MacDonald with him. His teeth are bared in what MacDonald supposes to be a smile, and indeed there’s a beckoning, genial glint in his eyes. And when he speaks, there’s nothing coquettish about his tone, nothing teasing—only that little lilt to his voice that MacDonald can never decode, a stilted and subtle musicality that feels sometimes out of sync with the intent of his words. (This, too, MacDonald mentally tots down.) “What now then, doctor?”

    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

    A man who knows things. That’s the singular impression given off by the shabby little stranger who saunters into the village inn that cool spring afternoon, just ahead of the storm. Bridgens, the innkeeper, eyes him warily from his stool in the corner. He will not of course, refuse service to any stranger and even has the reputation of lodging and feeding those who came to him without coin, but this man, his gut tells him, is after neither bed or sustenance. A man who knows things trades in knowing more: it’s his stock and wages in one, idle observations and secret histories are; lineages and folklore and local enmities... and it’s villainous work. Bridgens had known a few such men in the navy and many more during his brief stint as a prison guard. When such a man is paid, he knows, the cost is carved from another man’s flesh.

    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

    Podfic of ktula's fic.

    His namesake had been naked, back in London. It had been a clean cut, just into the soft bits and then out, wrapped up in a sheet and dumped into the Thames. No resistance.

    If he’d known how it was going to feel, he would have taken his time—

    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

    With halting breaths, the occasional silence, air sucked in sharply through his teeth, Cornelius spoke: the base work he would do on a beautiful ship, Terror spoken as if it were a word that meant glory. Neatly pressed uniforms and rough living, harsh command and the freedom of the open sea. The chill of the arctic, like nothing Ellis had ever imagined, like nothing Cornelius had ever imagined, a sparse and desolate splendor.

    "And the other end," Cornelius said, with another shuddering exhale. "After we cross the Passage — once we find the Passage — the Pacific Ocean. I hear it's beautiful … more beautiful than anything I've ever seen."
