    Summary

    "Hades stole Persephone away," Phillip murmurs, "held her hostage. It's only when she left his world that spring arrived upon the Earth once more."

    "Who's to say that Hades can't leave the underworld to join Persephone on Earth?" Barnum counters. He inches closer, breath ghosting across Phillip's lips, light dancing in the whisky surface of his eyes. "The only thing stopping him is the walls he built for himself."

    Summary

    "Impulsive and reckless is what I've come to expect from you." Phillip just dares to ghost his lips over the material of Barnum's shirt. This close to Barnum, the man's heartbeat a languid pulsing in his ears, his presence flooding Phillip's senses, Phillip finds Anne receding from his thoughts entirely.

    Barnum's laugh is humorless, more of an attempt to dislodge gravel from his windpipe than an expression of mirth. "I suppose I've given you no reason to expect any different."

    "Perhaps, but…" Phillip's fingers twine into the loose fabric on the back of Barnum's shirt. His chest swells, the topmost points of his jagged-edged anxiety slowly sanded down as he leans into the showman's body heat. "I seem to be taking after you, in that regard."

    Summary

    Phillip deals with the consequences of setting up a meeting with the Queen and the Circus. His father is not a forgiving man. When Phillip Carlyle is forced to share a bunk bed on the boat with non other than P.T Barnum, on their way to England, Phillip struggles to keep himself in check. He has many secrets he would prefer to keep hidden. But in such close quarters with Barnum, can he hide them all?

    Forgive the summary, people, but I think y'all will like this.

    Summary

    The call doesn't take long at all to go through.

    "P.T. Barnum speaking."

     

    (Some good, old fashioned phone sex, in which Phineas is tired, and Phillip is far too easily affected by his partners voice.)

    Summary

    Ever since he was a young boy, Phillip understood that in order to be useful, he had to please everyone, in anyway he could.
    Even though he hates it, he continues to do as his father taught him, to keep up with the Carlyle reputation.
    Then he joins the Circus, where he feels he finally belongs. But Phillip, being raised as he was, still thinks he needs people to be pleased with him. Especially P.T Barnum.
