    Summary

    “Dakin,” Irwin’s voice had a strange note to it. “How did you close the door?”

    ***

    A small tangent from the moment when Dakin and Irwin hide in the store cupboard to avoid Felix seeing them smoking.
    The first time I watched the film I would have bet every penny I had that they would fulfil the cliché of getting stuck in that cupboard and it is to my constant disappointment that this isn't the case. So here it is.

    Summary

    In which Scripps and Posner work out how friends become lovers and Dakin and Irwin work out how lovers become friends.

    Tom’s laugh is half snorted beer and coughing. Gratified his question is immediately understood; gratified by the response, he replies, “That, my love, is the right answer”.
    The endearment spins, glittering in the air: a spoken aloud thought born of fatigue and unaccustomed domesticity. Best ignored then. But Stu catches it before it can hit the ground - its shape to be turned over and over, its edges and outlines traced and retraced.
