    Summary

    “To see the world,” Thomas says, voice broken around the edges. “To see colours so strong they cannot be faded by the dusk. The scent of the sea. Life below deck. The warmth there. Dark, sealed. Like lying in a coffin. Comfortable. At peace.”

    Summary

    There is something terribly wrong with Edward Little. There is something insidious that haunts him. A malevolence that hunts and taunts him. He is plagued by it, this thing, this entity. It has always been with him, from boyhood to manhood, and it will be there even at his death. He knows this with each breath that fills his lungs. He feels this with each beat of his heart.

    Summary

    As Inuksak spoke and I translated, we heard one of the men outside the tent get up and walk out over the thick new snow. I thought nothing of it – I assumed he had other business – but an extraordinary change came about Sir James.

    He lifted his head, looked behind him. His expression showed only a slight strain, but to me, accustomed to reading that rigid face, it was the look of Lot. Inuksak fell silent. Then Sir James rose and bolted. At the departing back of the man, he shouted, “Frank!"

    Summary

    “Are you—?” Francis can hardly believe it, but he’d bet his wings on it. “Are you drunk?”

    “S’what if I am? Hmm?” Fitzjames lists to the right and Francis has to stop himself from yanking Fitzjames out of oncoming traffic. “Jealous?”

    the Eternal Law/The Terror (TV) mash-up no one asked for, but i am nevertheless proud to present.

    Summary

    “Good evening,” the man said gruffly.

    “Good evening,” he answered, offering his most charming smirk.

    “We’ve seen you around before, right?” the man asked with a note of suspicion as he came to stand by the boy, lifting one broad hand to the child’s dark hair. James didn’t begrudge him the tone; he was, after all, a strange man talking to his son at the park.

    “Yes,” he nodded easily, and then gestured in the general direction of his street. “I just moved in a few days ago.”

    ———
    After a chance meeting at the park, James strikes up a friendship (and maybe more) with his new neighbour.
