    Summary

    “It’s very nice to meet you,” said the erstwhile ice-cube. He had a warm, deep voice; unaffected by his long sleep as the rest of him. It really was spooky. Francis had looked up the daguerreotype: a rusted and pitted old thing, scanned into some museum’s system, taken nearly two centuries ago of a man who had hardly aged a day since.

     

    Francis Crozier, a grumpy history professor, is assigned to introduce a recently unfrozen Victorian naval commander to the wonders of the modern era. Sparks fly, and all that.

    Summary

    “Captain Whitfield,” Margaret says politely. “I hope you’ve been settling in alright.”

    “I have been, thank you,” Helen says. “I’d love if you would call me Helen, though.”

    “Oh, I don’t know,” Margaret says. After a pause, she adds, “You know, I don’t mean to be rude, but most of the other nurses tend to eat together. You know, not with the ranking officers.”

    “There’s not any rule against it, is there?” Helen says, and then, before Margaret can reply, she adds, “I mean, do you not want me here?”

    That’s the problem, Margaret thinks. I want you here more than I should. Despite herself, she finds that she doesn’t want to be outright rude to Helen, even though that might put an end to all of this much more quickly. So instead, having already eaten a bit of her breakfast already, Margaret finds herself standing up abruptly and saying, “I actually really have a lot of work to do. I hope you have a great breakfast, though.” I hope you have a great breakfast? What the hell am I saying?

    “Alright,” Helen says easily, not looking offended in the slightest. “But I’m taking a rain check on this. This and that card game you promised me earlier.”

    Summary

    “You,” BJ said aloud, as the hum of the hospital continued around them. There was no adequate end to the sentence. You have to wake up, so I can tell you I need you. BJ felt tears stinging his eyes as they formed, and he blinked them furiously away. He noted that someone had cleared the vomit from Hawkeye’s face, and the blood from his hair.
     
    In another life, maybe, far into the future when the lines began to blur further, he thought he might have been meant to be a nurse, to take care with people who were beloved to someone, to clean their hair and their hands and to dress them in gowns and bedclothes. No more cutting, no more blood. He’d always thought Margaret would have done well in their shoes, but he never thought about taking hers. Or maybe it was all nonsense, and it was only Hawkeye whose troubles he wanted to smooth away.
