    Summary

    Francis has no particular need of care, no particular desire to have fingers brush his face or person as though he were something breakable and sacred, a temptation and a promise all at once.

    No particular desire.

    Which is just as well, all things considered.

    Or rather, considering one specific thing: that the man in his bed is James Fitzjames.

    Summary

    James was working in the new sketchbook, cadged from one of the Enterprise officers of a similarly artistic bent. His previous lay on the table behind his elbow. Idly, Francis flipped it open. The early pages were all pencil sketches, such as he’d seen James do before; a few charcoals, in the middle, which were getting awfully smudged. Towards the back were the paintings. Here was the Terror, wedged skew-whiff in the ice. Here was an ice shelf in layers of green and blue. Here were the tents out on the shale in their orderly rows. Francis flicked by these, nauseous with memories of all they did not show.

    A splash of vibrant pink was visible on the edge of a page which stuck out a little from the others. Francis turned to it, and stopped still.

    For the terror.exe flash fic fest, from the prompt: Tell us about watercolours, why don't you, James?

    Summary

    “What a man commits to writing he must be prepared to say out loud,” says James, clasping Francis sternly by the elbows. “Surely your schoolmasters taught you that much, even if the captain of the Hamadryad did not.”
