    Summary

    “Did you ever dream you had a friend? Someone to last your whole life and you his. I suppose such a thing can’t really happen outside sleep.”
    ― E.M. Forster, Maurice

     

     1925, Shopshire:

    WW1 has left James Fitzjames as the only heir to the Gambier title. When his estranged father dies he must reluctantly leave behind a life of decadence and freedom in 1920s London to take over the remote stately home he grew up in. Luckily his childhood best friend Solomon Tozer (now the local stone mason) is pleased to see him.

    Shades of Maurice, Brideshead Revisited and The Go-Between. Probably ended up a lot more Ken Russell than Merchant Ivory.

    Summary

    “What on Earth is he doing?” Stanley asked. 

    “It seems he may have, ah... imprinted on me, sir,” said Goodsir sheepishly. Gore was now nuzzling at Goodsir’s neck and ear, his golden hair brushing against Goodsir’s whiskers. He smelled not of death but not of life either; more than anything he smelled of the clean sharp air of King William Land, a scent unknown to Goodsir until just this week past.

    Summary

    Erebus College, a small but prestigious school, has many typical college things: grad students and faculty, a sports team or two, dorm life, stress, new relationships, that one professor no one likes...but it is also home to a myth: Sasquatch sightings in the forested mountains outside of town. Most people believe it is a story to keep children from playing in the woods, but there are believers throughout town. Every few years, a group of students get brave enough (or stupid enough) to venture up into the mountains to camp for a long weekend, hoping for a sighting. This year is that year.

    New students, new loves, stressful midterms, a football team with the worst record, and, if they're lucky, a Sasquatch sighting.

    Follows the POVs of Henry Peglar, John Bridgens, Thomas Jopson, Edward Little, Francis Crozier, and James Fitzjames.

    Summary

    Captain Francis Crozier is far from the sea. When financial troubles push back the long awaited Franklin Expedition, the officers aboard the Terror move to the countryside while awaiting news. While there, Crozier is introduced to the newest officer of the expedition; a pompous, stubborn bastard named James Fitzjames. If Fitzjames is chosen for the expedition, Crozier might fight him before he must serve with him.

    Summary

    The fate of the expedition reimagined – in glimpses over the years stuck in the Arctic and a bit beyond, through Goodsir's and Collins' viewpoints. I wanted to explore what could perhaps have been, if small changes to the story were made along the way, if certain characters spoke more or made slightly different choices etc.

    This focuses on the relationship between Goodsir and Collins, but it also touches on and explores their relationships with the other characters.

    Summary

    Years ago, an infamous white whale attacked Captain Crozier's ship and killed nearly everyone on board. The captain, overwhelmed with grief and thoughts of revenge, started hunting the creature and never stopped.
    Among the survivors of that first voyage was John Bridgens, who is about to set sail again with Crozier, now a shadow of the brilliant captain John once knew. Henry Peglar, returning to his true love - the sea -, meets Bridgens in an inn the evening before the Terror, Endgland's most famous whaler, ships.

    Between years of whaling, dubious shipmates, new friends, and the ever-present threat of the great white whale, some sailors might just find something, or someone, worth fighting for.

    "Thou saw’st the locked lovers when leaping from their flaming ship; heart to heart they sank beneath the exulting wave; true to each other, when heaven seemed false to them"
    - Herman Melville

    Summary

    It’s the autumn of 1847, and the crew of the Franklin expedition is bracing for their third winter in the Arctic. But a strange superstition has begun making its way around the ships: that the solution to all their problems is a particular magic ritual called a “ships-marriage,” which would require the captain of Erebus and the captain of Terror to be joined in holy matrimony.

    Summary

    There was indeed precious little happiness in the world, whether that was in the Arctic or back in an England which was neither welcoming nor grateful for their sacrifices. But they would take what life gave them and damn well make the best of it.

    Summary

    Sir John runs a Christian-themed summer camp for at-risk teenage boys, though unbeknownst to him, much of his staff are markedly less keen on his strict religious traditions than he might have hoped. Everyone's hiding something, the air is rife with sexual tension, and the ones who aren't head-over-heels are at each other's throats. Also, that one camper might be plotting a murder.
