    Summary

    It constantly felt like Goodsir could see that he was specifically marked as aberrant, that he wore it as plain as the freckles on his face. That Goodsir could tell that he was different in such a way that disrupted the natural order of things. That he, in his unnatural desires, had tread carefully into the realm of the monstrous.

     

     

    Stanley injures his hand in a childish fit of rage. Despite his wishes, Goodsir patches him up. Unbeknownst to Goodsir, Stanley has been struggling with unnatural thoughts and desires for nearly his whole adult life, and now he is delirious with blood loss and his handsome assistant surgeon is sat very close to him. But, is Goodsir encouraging him?

     

    A Stanley character study completed to fill TheTerrorBingo prompt: "Injury Recovery".

    Summary

    Marc feels the world tilt a little bit as the man’s dark eyes settle on his face. He feels faint, mildly nauseated and he swears there’s a deep, disturbing, creaking noise, like a great, old wooden house settling down for the night, but magnified tenfold, reverberating in the air around them. He can’t move. He can’t speak. His mind is flooded with (by now) familiar images he still can’t quite piece together. Rocks and ice and dark stains that might be blood. They’re the images from his dreams, and to have them intrude on his waking mind is deeply concerning and disorienting.

    Summary

    "Now then, Mister Hickey," he said, in what he hoped was a tolerable imitation of Doctor MacDonald's bedside manner.

    Hickey’s thin, pale hand shot out and wrapped around his wrist. His skin was very hot. Hickey had been in the sick bay earlier that very day, and Harry had assisted with tending the lacerations on his posterior; then, he had been cool to the touch, but now he felt feverish, clammy. His eyes, too, were the eyes of fever, red-rimmed and piercing. “Hurts,” he said, teeth gritted.
