    Summary

    It is with more confidence, tonight, that he walks to the great cabin, this time opening the door slowly, exposing himself to the light in small doses before entering the room. Jopson sits inside, folding clothing with an enviable precision.
    Jopson looks up from his folding, his brow pinched ever so slightly before he corrects himself, giving Edward his characteristic tight smile. "Hello again, sir."

    Summary

    “Are you-” Graham loses speech once more.

    “-Yes. Very much so,” Harry says, without breaking eye contact. Graham swallows,

    “Like-”

     

    “-Wilde and Whitman and those types, yes.” It’s the most confident he’s ever heard Harry sound about anything.

    Summary

    Winters in the Arctic are long and lonely, especially for a Captain who is a drunkard who is missing the embrace of someone who may or may not love him. There is little solace is to be found on a ship frozen in the ice for Francis Crozier. However, console does take a most peculiar form in his steward Thomas Jopson, a man with whom such bleak surroundings are familiar.

    But this is a different time, at the other end of the world. Some emotions cannot always be trusted nor indulged in due to their stakes, no matter what lines are crossed. At least, that is what Crozier tells himself as he becomes more infatuated by Jopson's presence.

    Summary

    Francis Crozier, in the time honoured tradition of the socially awkward that have come before him, has no idea how to ask James if he wants to spend time with him outside of work. That part of his life was easier before he was sober, he reflects, then winces internally. Well, not easier, no. Disastrous, in fact, but the actual getting-together part was easier. You had a drink (or two, or three) and you made your move. Now? Fuck if he knows.

     

    Does James like going out for dinner? Probably. Will Francis ask him if he wants to do that near him? He would honestly rather die.

     

    Inspired by a text post by @jopsonlovebot on Tumblr, this fic asks the question: what if The Terror, but it's a romantic comedy set during a paintball weekend?

    Summary

    I’ll not have a picture, he thinks, gazing grimly at James’ drawn, damaged face. I’ll not have a miniature to tuck inside my breast pocket, or a sketch made on a winter’s evening by the fireside. It will be my own burden to remember him, until such a time as this cursed land takes me, too.

    Twenty five men return to England. For Francis, this means making a poor job of keeping James from scuttling his career, and working out what a sea captain might do with himself in the absence of a ship.
