    Summary

    Sir John runs a Christian-themed summer camp for at-risk teenage boys, though unbeknownst to him, much of his staff are markedly less keen on his strict religious traditions than he might have hoped. Everyone's hiding something, the air is rife with sexual tension, and the ones who aren't head-over-heels are at each other's throats. Also, that one camper might be plotting a murder.

    Summary

    The fate of the expedition reimagined – in glimpses over the years stuck in the Arctic and a bit beyond, through Goodsir's and Collins' viewpoints. I wanted to explore what could perhaps have been, if small changes to the story were made along the way, if certain characters spoke more or made slightly different choices etc.

    This focuses on the relationship between Goodsir and Collins, but it also touches on and explores their relationships with the other characters.

    --

    When Francis Crozier dies in the Arctic, James Fitzjames and Sir James Clark Ross fall into an odd relationship as they attempt to cope with losing the man they loved.

    Summary

    “I think this town is haunted,” James breathed. Francis shook his head, his piercing gaze still locked on the waves washing over the black rocks.
    “I think it's the people who are haunted.”

    Summary

    “Across the room, one of the students has evidently done well as Mr Bridgens breaks into a warm smile, the skin around his eyes crinkling in such a way that Henry feels strangely jealous of the boys who get to see it up close.”

    Hemisphere, from Henry’s perspective. And a little of how they came to love each other.

    Summary

    He never truly trusts anyone on this ship, makes sure of it. Still, his trepidation concerning Peglar’s reporting to superiors fades quickly. Cornelius sees the fine line he walks between compliance and rule-breaking, envies his freedom to do so. He contemplates this as he watches Peglar reading in the mess like always, day in, day out.

    He has been paying more attention than he’d ever confess.

    Summary

    “Did it ease him?”
    It had sounded to him like a more merciful question before he asked it. John can answer it readily, though.
    “I didn’t stay long enough to see,” he replies. “I thought they would be better left alone."
    “If he asked for it, he must have known it would.”

    Summary

    Almost fourteen years have passed since John Bridgens was separated from the love of his life, Henry. At first, John made an adequate living rising through the ranks of the Royal Navy, but since then, John’s fortunes have fallen into ruin. Barely keeping himself alive on the meagre wages of a law-writer and constantly longing for his lost love, John believes he has very little left to live for. In despair, he turns to opium. 

    A crossover between AMC’s The Terror (2018) and BBC’s Bleak House (2005), based on the Charles Dickens serial narrative of the same name and the fact that John Lynch is terminally lovely in both shows as John Bridgens and Mr. Nemo / James Hawdon, respectively. 

    You really don’t need to know anything about Bleak House to read this – I certainly didn’t, to write it!

    Summary

    “I can’t abide by those stories,” John says without irritation, just a sadness in his voice that hints at something lost. “Stories that inflict suffering upon their characters and toss them out. If I were to put them through all the trouble, I would let them have something to remember it by, at the very least. Once they’re out of it.”
    “You could write,” Harry ventures. “A story of your own. I’d read it.”
    “You would, would you?”

    Summary

    “It’s not a happy story, is it?”
    “No. But it’s a comfort.”
    “Knowing that bad things happen?”
    “Knowing that, despite it all, one man makes it home to the ones he loves.”

    Summary

    The dreams had always been with him.

    Since he was a child, Thomas would wake at night, images from a time long past dancing in front of his vision. Some were beautiful, peaceful even. His favorites were the ones with another younger boy; they played in a garden, or climbed trees together. There is a woman too, sometimes; darning socks by candlelight, or singing softly under her breath as she tended to supper. She would take Tom to what looked like a farmers market, basket swinging on her arm. Those dreams left him feeling warm and content upon waking.

    Then, there were the other dreams.

    Summary

    The house breathes, Thomas Jopson has noticed. There is something stalking the halls, a red-eyed jealous fiend lurking in the shadows. When he first came to the house to care for the late naval captain Francis Crozier, Thomas was able to ignore the strangeness; the lack of staff, the odd habits of his employer, the uneasiness that lived in each room and tapped on every window.

    Now, with the arrival of Mr. Crozier's friend and associate Edward Little, the house is roused into a frenzy, the likes of which none of her inhabitants could anticipate. The house breathes, and it has begun to scream.

    Summary

    Now John’s hands pressed so tightly into Henry’s hipbones, he was sure to leave bruises, and would kiss them in apology every day, until they faded.
    With a heave and a pull Henry managed to dislodge John’s shirt from where it had been tucked in and a moment later the sun caressed John’s naked back.
