    Summary

    The long and the short of it was: Francis had grown a moustache. It looked terrible. It made James want to rip off his clothes. It made no sense. He could not allow this to continue.

    Summary

    “What was it, James, all those men before did that didn’t please you?” Francis asks quietly, a menacing gleam of certainty crystallising in his gaze, and James feels his stomach drop at the warm, queasy sense that some trap has been laid that he’s been far too foolish to see. “Or, rather," Francis whispers, "what did they fail to do? Tell me, so that I may not repeat their mistakes.”

    ***

    James has a secret, and Francis has a way of seeing far too much.

    Summary

    “Francis!” James gasps.
    “James,” Francis returns, with markedly less enthusiasm.
    “It’s fate, Francis.”
    “I’m not sure you talking about wanting a cat and us seeing some cats a few days later counts as fate, James.” But it’s too late. He’s being tugged over to look at the kitties.

    Summary

    Everything was fresher and stronger in Marseille, in fact. A ripe fruit of a city that turned wasted bodies into men again.

    A gift on a warm summer morning.

    Summary

    I will admit that at first my feelings were less tender than irritated. I thought her, in fact, a braggart of the worst sort. During our first conversation she enquired casually as to my tons burthen; “325,” said I. “Oh!” said she, “mine is 372. And what is your length,” she asked; “102 feet,” said I. “Oh, how interesting!” said she, “mine is 105 feet. And I believe I am broader in beam as well.” She then asked about my armament, and feigned surprise to discover that she was the better armed. I thought I had never met a more smug and odious ship.
