    Summary

    There, on a wide padded bench for the putting-on of gaiters and galoshes, lay James: one leg cocked up, and his white-gloved hands folded behind his head. His sabre, in its scabbard, dangled down onto the polished floor.

    Summary

    James was woken that morning by a tumble of cards and presents, and breakfast on a tray. Francis gave him a book about the Portuguese court in Brazil, a silk scarf, a new pasta-making machine, and the paper promise of a trip to Scafell Pike (“just to drive you there, James, and then I'm going to sit by a lake with my feet up while you go gallivanting.”)

    Summary

    “Áine.” His voice is low and gentle, slightly ragged at the edges.

    “Please don’t.”

    Summary

    “Here,” James strokes Francis’ forehead. “A lump would mean you were a good mimic, or an actor — or a liar.”

    “Those pamphlets you delight in bringing home,” says Francis grumpily. “How many times have I told you they’re good for nothing but lighting fires?”

    Summary

    People are turning to look back at him, beaming, holding hands over their hearts. Harry Goodsir is weeping extensively into his beard. Alice has already reached the middle of the aisle, throwing a fistful of confetti with such violence that it catches Ed Little squarely in the face.

    Summary

    “I’m touched,” says Francis. “You having groin strain is exactly what I wanted.”

    “I don’t—” James says through gritted teeth “—have groin strain.”

    “James,” says Francis slowly. “Are we actually talking about your dick?”

    Summary

    There is a meaning here; a message. James sees it in the face of his companion, in his deathʼs head, like a memento mori on a gravestone or a watch fob. They travel, boat-borne, on dry land. Christ never managed such a feat.

    Summary

    The stream ran clear and cheerful over a bed of pale rocks, fringed with reeds; it wound away through the field, saplings and smaller trees bending at its edges, willows trailing their arms into the water. Francis bent and wetted his hands, cupped freezing water; drank.

    Summary

    James backs them towards the drawing room, giving back kiss for kiss, biting at Francis’ lower lip, tugging him by his lapels. He starts to unbutton his uniform coat and Francis rises as though from underwater, gasping, “No.”

    A queer light comes into James’ eyes. “Oh,” he says. “I see.”

    Summary

    James looks up, and finds Francis Crozier glaring at him from the Health and Wellbeing section. He looks… hot. And furious.

    Summary

    Francis is flat on his back and snoring softly. Annie wriggles under the duvet and snuggles up to him, head pillowed proprietorially on his arm. Francis doesn’t stir, not even when James climbs in on Annie’s other side, Alice still attached around his neck.

    Summary

    Behind him, their bed is heaped with what seems to be every item of clothing they own — a Marie Kondo-worthy mountain of suit jackets and faded Levi’s and ties and t-shirts and the questionable Hawaiian shirt Francis has successfully been hiding from James for years.

    “It’s fine,” James says again, spreading his arms. “I’ll just go like this, and everything will be fine!”

    Summary

    The last time James was in this room he’d been sure Francis was dying, that he’d lose another captain and be left to lead alone. Before that, Francis’ terrible surrender to the thing that was killing him, the sacrifice to save himself; to save his men. And farther back—James’ cheekbone aches, and he touches the place reflexively.

    Summary

    Francis makes a performance of turning over and rearranging the duvet around himself, getting his head comfortable on the pillow again. “Just… be your usual starfish and I’ll stay near the temperate zones.”

    Summary

    He slides his braces off his shoulders, frowning as the movement stretches the scars on his arm, untucks the tails of his shirt. It’s been a month since they returned, and he and Francis have done little more than take tea together, brushing hands while reaching for the sugar tongs.

    Summary

    Francis’ first view of Venice was not a prepossessing sight: the low-lying islands in the murky lagoon, the coffin-like gondolas, the sea-fret that came creeping on the clammy air. Perhaps the heady pomp of Rome would have been better after all, or Palermoʼs dry autumnal heat.

    Summary

    “I asked you,” James says, punctuating his words with a slightly biting kiss to Francis’ neck, “what you thought when you first saw me. When we first met.”

    “Very well, James—very well,” Francis hisses as James thumbs at his nipple again. “Let me be, for heaven’s sake. Let me think.”
