    Summary

    “Do you want to talk?” Tyler asks.

    “No,” Chris says. “I couldn’t think of anything worse right now.”

    (or: Chris isn't really coping that well, and Tyler is a welcome distraction.)

    Summary

    It's Malcolm's birthday. He doesn’t know that Trip knows of course, and that hurts. To not even bring it up with the people that you have been serving with for months. To think that they wouldn’t care. Well, Trip does care. In a sudden, dizzying flash of clarity, his caring takes shape. It gains purpose and traction. He watches Malcolm at work, and takes a deep breath.

    Right now though, there is much to be done. He stands next to Malcolm, shoulder to shoulder and hip to hip, and presses his fingers to the controls.

    Later on, he watches as Malcolm Reed cuts into a birthday cake and laughs. He watches as he licks icing from his thumb. He wonders.

    (or: falling in love during his first deep space mission wasn't part of the plan. Trip does it anyway.)

    Summary

    They’re sitting at the kitchen table when Francis thinks about it – again. It’s become something of a regular occurrence these past few days. When he’s marking essays, when he’s walking to the coffee shop, when he slips underneath the duvet to pull James close – all the bloody time, if he’s being honest. The force of his desire once shocked him, but James opened those floodgates a long time ago. Now, he turns it over and over in his mind.

    (or: Francis wants to switch things up, and James is very happy to oblige.)

    Summary

    The memory green and golden lights weaving themselves across the dark sky still haunted James Fitzjames. A simple thing. An innocent thing, really.

    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?”
