    Hickey and Irving spend the winter together at Beechey. A study in Arctic weirdness — regarding time, memory, colour, light.

    Summary

    An unforeseen event saves the remaining three dozen men of the crews of Erebus and Terror, when all hope seemed lost. By all appearances, they can now be on their way back home. But what they have disturbed above the Arctic circle does not let Francis Crozier and James Fitzjames go so easily.

    (Paused for illness.)

    Summary

    Escaping the ice is more down to sheer dumb luck than any happenstance of Sight, Divine Intervention or the not-insignificant amount of skill their crews bring to the occasion, but they all get out alive (bar unfortunate souls Sir John and Cornelius Hickey, whose deaths are viewed by many as, contrarily, rather fortunate.) Now, in London, pressed by Commander Fitzjames to saving their navy half-pay by sharing rooms together, Crozier is struggling to return to normality.

    It would help, he admits begrudgingly, if he could tell the difference between dreams blessed/cursed by the Sight and just good old trauma-induced nightmares. And if he hadn’t started to develop feelings for the man who, even ridden with scurvy, still deserved the title ‘handsomest man in the royal navy’.

    Alternatively: the 'everybody lives' idea has it's own challenges, and I had the plot-idea of 'what if francis confused sight and nightmares?' and then I started writing this and realised james fitzjames is an anxiety-ridden mess™. the real au of all of this is that the Victorians had running water.
