    Summary

    He lets the other man’s head down as gently as he can manage, keeps the cup grasped in one hand just to have something to hold to. A physical pretext for sitting so closely to Francis, that he can feel the furnace heat of his body radiating from the blankets.

     

     

    “I’m not Jopson,” he says more to himself than anything, “but I suppose I’ll have to do, for the moment.”

     

    FitsJames goes to comfort or confront his First, who is locked away drying out on Terror. Takes place somewhere around episode 6, A Mercy, with a bit of re-imagining.

    Summary

    “With all due respect, sir—if ever you find yourself…needing something, you’re free to come and see me.”

    There was a peculiar quirk to Thomas Blanky’s upper lip as he said this, a strange twist in his expression that James could not make sense of. Blanky turned the pipe in his good hand as if inspecting it before tucking it inside the pocket of his coat.

    “Mr. Blanky,” James said, “I’m sure I don’t know what you mean.”

    Blanky sighed, then, and glanced up, meeting James’ eyes. In the low lamplight, Blanky’s pupils were small and focused, dark and piercing. “I don’t mean to presume, sir. But you’ve seemed a bit—knotted up, recently. Since Francis has been on the mend.”

    The ship creaked, its boards moaning under the crush of the ice, and the blue world outside pressed against the windows. In this moment, James felt a subtle but unmistakeable shift, like electricity standing hairs on end just before a lightning storm. James knew that, as though he were an entomologist’s specimen, he was pinned, caught, seen.

    Summary

    “The loss of a ship is a small price to pay for the completion of the Passage, wouldn’t you say?” James said, employing his best smile. Make it look easy, make it look painless, and people would gladly follow you—he’d learnt that early on.

    “Well I’d not thought to see it,” said Sir John, looking between the two of them. “If both of you are of one mind, there must be some truth to it. Very well.” He clapped his hands together. “Francis, James, the two of you can figure out the logistics. I’ll inform the men after David Young’s funeral service. Begin preparations immediately.”
