    Summary

    “You’re shivering, me lord,” Tom mumbled pushing his hands away stubbornly, probably to try and undress him, not noticing the fault in his logic, namely that he was shivering just as badly.

     

     

    Sweet Jesus. This stupid, selfless boy.

     

    Written for the Outlander Bingo 2020 - for the square "After an Injury / While Hurt".

    Set in the timeline of The Scottish Prisoner, with the mild deviation that after Tom gets shot he and John doesn't find the boat again.

    Summary

    “But our clothes, me lord! They are going to get all wet!”
    Lord John smiled at him, a bright flash of teeth as he rubbed the ointment into the skin of his neck.
    “We’ll just have to leave those on the bank.”
    Tom gaped at him. All of them?
    He realized he had spoken aloud when Lord John’s brilliant laugh echoed across the water.
    “I wouldn’t want to cause more work for my valet by dirtying them with mud or algae,” he said in a conspiring way. “You truly haven’t done this before, Tom?” he asked then, curiously. “Swam naked in a river?”

     

     

     

     

     

     

    or
    On their way back from a dinner party Lord John and Tom Byrd take a swim in the river in order to escape the Jamaican heat.

    Self-indulgent silly fluffyness.

    Summary

    “What is it, Tom?”

    Tom’s throat constricted. Of course, John would notice the shift in his mood. He was such a great, attentive man. He deserved much better than an annoying nag like Tom.

    John was still looking at him expectantly, with so much patience and kindness, it almost broke his heart.
    “’m sorry, me lord,” he blurted out. While there was no need for him to address John formally behind closed doors anymore, he often kept calling him that out of habit. “I shouldn’t ha’ said what I did back there. I had no right to embarrass you like that.”

    I've tried to write some kinky smut. Tom brought the emotional baggage. Like a lot.

    Summary

    The warm fragrance of Christmas, cloves and oranges in particular, reached John’s nose on a cool night in June as he pulled the Hanoverian Landgrave Stephan von Namtzen into his bed-chamber.

    “I was starting to think you had changed your mind,” he muttered against the older man’s chapped lips as he locked the door behind them.
