    Summary

    Had the captain been a regular gentleman and Thomas his ordinary valet, there might have been enough outside the span of their shared world to dilute that pleasure; the civilised noise of England, holidays and outings and friends, would have rendered all these joys less keen. Surely, in a house on land, having made his master’s bed just so would not have been enough to carry him through a morning with a spring in his step.

    For the terror.exe flash fic fest, from the prompt: thomas jopson? thomas jopson, who loved you? One Million Times, as i heard?

    Summary

    There were mornings when Thomas would wake up and forget where he was; forget that they’d made it home to England; forget that his life now wasn’t just some fevered dream of a dying man. He would wake from a dream choking and unable to tell if the curtains were real, if the bed was real, if the warmth of it all was real.

    But more often than not, he would wake in a panic and be met by Francis pulling him close and holding him until the shaking and fear passed.

    Summary

    “Your coat, Francis,” Jopson says without raising his head. “You’ve torn it again.”

    That’s his Christian name on Jopson’s tongue, spoken with a tinge of displeasure too. Francis shifts his weight uneasily, rolls his shoulders. “The same seam as last time,” Jopson continues, laying the coat gently across his lap.

    Francis approaches. His posture is stiff, his arms rigid at his side. But his voice, when he speaks, dances the blade’s width between teasing and chiding. “Perhaps it wasn’t mended properly last time, mm?”

    Summary

    A sudden movement caught the corner of his vision and Francis turned. Someone had crawled out of their tent… and unless his eyes were playing tricks on him (and they well could be) they were still alive. He broke away from Lady Silence to hurry toward the fallen figure, and then increased his pace further when he realized who it was.

    It was Jopson, shivering and underdressed on the cold shale.

    Summary

    Francis lies in bed for a few minutes more, listening to the snatches of humming and the low, rhythmic scraping of the blade, before he says, “Do you know what I’d like, Jopson?”

    “Sir?” He’s just finished toweling off his face and gazes at Francis intently. The tone of his cheeks and jaw is beautifully ruddy after shaving; his hair is damp.

    “I would like a good, complete freshening up. Top to toe.”

    Summary

    Jopson slides the captain’s right epaulet into place, adjusts it minutely, and steps back. “Let us see, sir,” he says.

    The older man stands still for inspection, his arms extended before him and a glint of amusement in his eye. With nimble fingers, Thomas plucks a hair from his sleeve—the man’s own, warm silver—and nods once, a neat and practiced dip of the chin conveying approval.

    “What would I do,” Crozier queries with a sly cock of his brow, “without you to tend to me?” His gaze flicks to Jopson’s lips. “I might have to take a wife.”

    The loss of his right leg would not ruin him. That was what Thomas kept repeating to himself as he lay in his bunk aboard the Enterprise.

    Summary

    Almost Ursa Major—that was the picture that rose from his skin and pointed him toward his conparis as surely as Polaris guided all the argonauts from the dawn of time. This was how Thomas knew he was meant to be at sea, ever since he was a lad learning to sew at his mother’s knee. Curious, though, was the way Muscida, the star which represented the head of the bear, pulled from the body as if by some greater gravity. None of the star charts Thomas had consulted in all his years had shown Muscida so removed from the rest of Ursa Major. Thomas considered it a boon—surely many sailors bore constellations as their marcam conparis, but only he and his conparis would have this—noble Ursa Major, stretching her neck.

    Perhaps someday, on a voyage to the North, he would find his match under her auspicious eye.

    Summary

    A good captain was as much a servant to his crew as his crew was to him. It helped when the crew was likeable and hardworking and effective. It helped when the crew was Jopson.

    Summary

    In the last camp Francis had found one survivor, said survivor having had done terrible awful things to survive so long. Now even when they have returned to England, the horrors that plague his former steward are still so fresh.

    In other words, I had Edward drag Jopson with him to the last camp trying to keep them both alive and Francis learns the horrific things that transpired within the camp as Jopson learns to cope and recover from the horrors in the arctic and to grieve without the man who loved him.

    This is a story about the long lasting effects of a traumatic journey and the struggle to find meaning in life again.
