    Being land-bound by fog is bearable as long as you have a good fire, good beer and good company. At least as far as Archie is concerned.

    Summary

    “Promise me you’ll get on another boat, Horatio. Promise me.”

    Horatio swallowed hard. “I will do my best to try.”

    They both knew it was all he could offer without turning his words into a lie, and they both knew it was not enough. Archie’s face crumbled and before Horatio knew what was happening Archie’s hand left his chest and pulled him close.

    “I’ll come back for you,” Archie promised in a fierce whisper. “Whatever happens, I’ll come back. I’ll find you.”

    On April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic Ocean.

    Summary

    A follow-up to my "Windfalls" fic. It features scenes from Amelia and Horatio's life, some fluffy, some sexy, some slightly dark. But through it all, they remain the same slightly oddball couple they've always been. Complete, but will be updated on occasion as I get bit by plot bunnies.

    Most Recent Update: 6/28/21, I finally decided to try to port over the image-heavy "Notes From Last Night". It's now the new Chapter 12.

    Summary

    “I did not want to see you again so soon, Mr. Kennedy,” Death said – for that was who she was, Archie realized as she gently reached out to touch the back of his head, almost like a lover. Her fingers stilled over a particular area, just above his neck, and her face filled with regret. Instinct made him shy away from her touch even though it did not hurt. But it should. Something told him that it should hurt – he just couldn’t remember why.

    “What happened to me?” he asked, raising his own hand to touch the tender spot that echoed with pain that was no longer there.

    Death’s smile grew sad. “Someone hurt you.”

    Five times Archie Kennedy met Death and lived to tell the tale, and one time Death saved his life.
