    Summary

    Written for the following corsetsandlemons prompt (though I didn't quite manage to post it before the challenge closed): After David loses his first fight with the butcher, Uriah patches him up and either teaches him how to beat the shit out of his opponent or what bear grease is *really* for. (Or both--both is good.)

    Summary

    Uriah Heep has always been glad to do David Copperfield any favour, and offers to perform a somewhat indecent one for the new-minted alpha. David is taken aback, but being a fresh and curious sort of young man, he's hardly uninterested.

    Summary

    It is devil of a thing to be worshipped by a man worth ten of you. No end of trouble and no end of pleasure. Though he had only known it to happen to him once, James Steerforth was careless enough to put it down as a general truth. He thought it again and again, that day when he first seduced David Copperfield.
