    Jack's not sure if he's more haunted by his memories or by the silent, lingering ghost of Gus Balfour. And then Gus is dead but his ghost lingers, Jack blames himself, and everything is dreadful until it's slightly less so.

    Summary

    It gave him hard limits, but his time at Gruhuken hasn’t killed Jack’s curiosity and ambition.

    And while Jack hasn’t spoken to Gus since before he had gone to Oxford, and they hadn’t parted on good terms, they were young and emotional and fresh from Gruhuken then. Surely now with all the years passed, they would be able to put that behind them.

    Summary

    Jack and Gus both survive Gruhuken and are taken to Longyearbyen to recover. But there's something badly wrong with Jack, and Gus wonders if anything will be right again. 

    It had taken getting his appendix out for Gus to realise he was in love. It was ridiculous of course. Completely ridiculous. Of all the awkward buggers in the world to fall for, in of all the awkward situations. But Jack ticked every box on a list he hadn’t known he had: lean, dark, scathingly honest, and burning with intellectual curiosity.
