    Summary

    Dear PoeticSoul (if that is your real name),

    Hello. I’ve never done this before, so I’m not quite sure how it goes but—I need a date for Friday, December 21st. My work is hosting a holiday party and for the past three years, I have gone alone. Which has been fine, really, until my colleagues began making rather unseemly comments. And my boss—well, if you come with me, I’m sure you’ll gather Elias’s character when you meet him. He’s a bit...unsettling, and I’d rather have someone there as a bit of a buffer.

    As stated in my profile, this is not a sex thing—to be clear. I need you to be my boyfriend. Just for one night.

    Let me know about the cost. I do hope you’re worth whatever exorbitant fee you’re charging.

    Jon

    Summary

    Fitzjames looked unused to receiving such a reserved reaction to his words, and adjusted his manner, tossing a shining curl out of his eyes with a graceful, well practised move, and Francis almost dropped his champagne as realisation tore into him like a squall. 

     A chill in the night air, the stink of Portsmouth harbour, and those same dark eyes gazing up at him with firelight glinting in them.

     For his own sake as much as his Fitzjames' Francis tried not to show any reaction, be it recognition or shock, but he knew as well as anyone that he was not the finest master of his facial expressions. He cleared his throat, and took a sip of champagne to try and hide whatever his face might be doing, wishing desperately for dinner to be announced.

    “Captain Crozier, are you well?”

    Summary

    They still haven't talked about it, any of it, not even to pass the time on the long train ride to Scotland. Instead, Martin fell asleep in the seat next to him, pressed into his side from shoulder to knee, and Jon thought about love confessions and verb tense and how the two fit together when you think you're dying.

    or: Good cows, mediocre poetry, and other crucial topics of discussion.
