    Summary

    The thing that had crept into the teacup in the kitchen, the thing that had made itself look like what the person that smelled like the Lonely, all fog and salt, had wanted it to be, did not have a name until the Archive Named it.

    “That is not tea,” the Archive had said, and so it was.

    Summary

    Francis’ mouth was just as soft and giving as James had imagined it would be. A thing that had happened more frequently over the past year than he would care to admit.

     Really, when a man was dying of scurvy one might expect him to have more pressing matters on his mind than kissing his captain. Although, Nelson had been comforted by Hardy in such a manner when he was slowly bleeding to death, so it might be said that James was in exalted company. If the manner of the kisses he desired were a little more thorough than one laid upon his forehead and then another upon his cheek, well - that had almost been between him and his God.

    Summary

    In the sunlight, James’ eyes are the golden colour of amber, and Francis thinks that all the horrors they have seen and lived through are made up for with this one shining moment.

    (A question, in a garden, on a warm afternoon.)

    Summary

    “Are you certain I can’t have the rank without the tassels?”

    “Quite certain,” said Crozier, amused at the role reversal. So often it had been him complaining about the need to dress up, and Jopson, long-suffering, waving an epaulette threateningly.
