    Summary

    “If you want to take her in I can put out word for a wet nurse.”

    There’s an unspoken statement of, ‘This child will be sent to orphanage or foundling’s home if you don’t,’ behind William’s words. With its mother dead and the father unknown, the baby’s situation was even more precarious that James’ had been. Despite being new returned from the Arctic and still very much suffering the after effects, there was simply no way his answer could be anything other than yes.

    Summary

    По ночам – он все еще думает о времени для сна, как о ночи, пусть даже над ним зияет бесконечный полярный день – по ночам он снится себе Террором. Он цепляется якорями за лед, и под ногтями остается снежная крошка. У него ноют ребра, трещат под слепым, медленным, чудовищным напором. Однажды он просыпается от острой боли в спине, и в те туманные мгновения между сном и пробуждением, когда разум ходит странными тропами, думает со всей уверенностью: спина болит, потому что у Террора не выдержала, сломалась под ветром и собственной тяжестью грот-мачта.

    Summary

    "What’s all this?" James asked, a glimmer in his dark eyes, and Henry knew he was done for.

    “We’re tryin’ ta get a song out of the Lieutenant, Commander.”

    “Oh, then I insist Dundy! Your voice has such a rich, full timbre.”

    Summary

    Alpha/Beta/Omega Universe - This story is following the story of the doomed Franklin expedition as close as it can with some minor exceptions. After lots of pinning the two captains Crozier and Fitzjames found comfort in each others arms, meanwhile Jopson and Little are trying their best to hide their relationship from the rest of the Crew. Hickey is his usual evil self and Blanky is just done with everyone. After the tragic death of Sir John the crews of both Terror and Erebus have to survive the harsh arctic climate and Tuunbaq at the same time. Will they make it out of the ice or perish on the way?

    (...)A loud shout startled Francis. The feather in his hand slipped and fell onto the cream coloured paper, smudging ink everywhere. The Irishman snarled as he tossed the letter into the bin next to his desk and got up to investigate what all the noise was about. The voices grew even louder when he stepped outside his cabin and almost instantly Francis knew something was off. (...)

    When Odysseus visits the underworld, he is told by the prophet Tiresias to carry an oar on his back until he gets far enough inland that men have no knowledge of the sea and mistake the oar for a winnowing fan. After that he will be allowed to return home in peace and die a gentle death far from the sea.

    Summary

    He likes being hungry. It sharpens his wits. It keeps him focussed.

    Or perhaps he’s just used to it, like the cold. Set your mind straight and you can get used to anything.

    ...

    My take on Hickey's character - present takes place on Terror (beginning in Greenland) with lots of morbid Victorian poverty in the form of childhood flashbacks.

    Summary

    Not like this, not like this, Harry Goodsir’s mind burns. For months now, he has been quietly fond of the Lady Silence. But as she stumbles and sways like a broken top, smelling of blood and ice and acrid smoke, he is suddenly, acutely aware of the fact that he loves her.

    Summary

    They were home.
    England, at last. after so many years. Only a few of them, bearing witness. Bearing secrets.
    Something was wrong. Something in their stomachs, in their teeth, in their mind.
    They had eaten once, and they couldn't stop eating.

    Or: where the crew resort to cannibalism and even once back in england, find out they cannot stop.

    Addendum: The first chapter was rewritten the 23/07/2019. I apologise for the previous mistakes.

    Summary

    A small personal choice leads to Lieutenant Irving narrowly avoiding death by stabbing.
    Unfortunately, Fate is keen to demonstrate all the other causes of death it has on a special winter discount.
    And worst of all, his continued survival now depends on the very man who attempted to murder him.
    (The slow burn fix-it AU no one asked for!)
