    Summary

    “I didn’t know dancing could be—” he pauses, hand waving through the air as he looks for a word not as strong as enjoyable. “—enjoyable.”

    Summary

    “You look well in the firelight,” said Ross, his voice pleasant and hoarse from sleepiness. Crozier saw his shadow first, then Ross himself as he came around the sofa and sat beside him. His dressing gown hung loose about him. He was thin these days, thinner than Crozier liked to see him, but he still smiled.

    “Your eyes are beginning to go,” said Crozier. He tossed the end of his fur blanket across Ross’ knees, the better to share the warmth. “Ann will have you in spectacles if she hears you talking like that.”

    Summary

    “It is difficult to know what to say," Francis admitted after a minute or three of watching Ann wind the wool, his hands relaxing slowly into his lap, "when you are told you will cause an absence in someone’s life.”

    “You nod, and accept the warm sentiment of another,” Ann said matter-of-factly, casting a look at the wool hanging slack between Francis' fingers. "And you hold the wool taut!" she teased, "how else shall I have these gloves made in time.”

     James shifted at the sound of their merriment, Ann watching his eyes slip open to take in the scene before him. He smiled, warmth flickering over his expression as surely as the shadows from the fire; his gaze, still full of sleep, holding a softness in its depths that made Ann smile.

    Summary

    Francis walked on, trying to remember the places where he had been. Francis walked to the coast and out onto the ice. Back to his ships, back home. Except his ships were gone, and so was home, and so was he.

    Summary

    The delicate curve of James’s ankle may well drive him mad. Francis can feel it resting against his own, the sharp little point of his ankle bone pressing into him. He spares him a withering glance over the table. James practically glows as he chatters heedlessly on with Lady Ann. Across the table from him, Ross lifts an eyebrow.

    Summary

    “You know,” Francis said, later that evening. “I told William that we were living as husband and wife, but we haven’t really had anything like a wedding, have we. I only started calling you Lady Crozier when we went to Portugal, because anything else would have been suspect.”

    James looked up from the sketch he’d been doing, Francis in profile. “Francis… we can’t. There isn’t a church in the world that would marry us.”

    --
    In which Francis R. M. Crozier and Isabel (James) Fitzjames get married, sequel to 'all it takes is one more step'

    Summary

    Summary

    Indeed, Ann had mentioned in her letters that Ross himself could use a friend or two these days. Considering the hellishness of the Londonian summertime, a trip to the country is would be a delight either way. Perhaps they could even make a tradition out of it. Perhaps, when James retires and they would be free to leave the city, the four of them shall get to live side by side, all close companions to one another.

    In which Francis isn't hungry, but James knows a craving when he sees it.

    Summary

    ‘You are a man of property, it would seem,’ continues James, face still turned away from Francis, ‘perhaps too much property. An embarrassment of Jameses. Hard for a fellow to tell them apart.’

    Or: James and Francis. Francis and James.

    Or: Francis has a type. James has noticed.
