    Summary

    He set the book aside, and scoffed at the second one in the pile. Coming Up For Air. A bit on the nose, that, presenting him with the story of the man taking himself back to his childhood home, looking to recapture the golden years. You can’t ever go home again. That’s what Orwell was trying to say with that one. Well, Alfred had come home. And he was going to have to make it work.

     

    Captain Alfred Broadhurst (PhD) has a new life in his old town; new flat, new job with new students, and a new book to write too. Patrick Butcher, university librarian, part-time novelist and doting dad, is struggling with his new book and feeling a bit melancholy in a way he can't quite put his finger on.

    It isn't going to take much to end up in each other's orbits.

    Summary

    The thing with endings was that they were always preceded by a beginning. It just so happened that beginnings were as a rule, almost always better than what followed them, unfortunately enough.

    A new programme replaces the Captain's precious Tank Battles, about life after the war and he is reminded of the person he was, and the love he once had. We follow him as his mind bounces back and forth between existing in the present and missing what is no longer. Yet no amount of pining can bring the past back... can it?

    "i never had one." he said monotonously.

    Summary

    The Captain has been alone with his thoughts for far too long. Pat thinks it's time that changed, and it just so happens to take a full-blown argument to reach that conclusion. Sometimes, being told it's okay is all it takes for a dam to finally break.

    Or: It starts with Pat telling the Captain to naff off, and it all rather escalates from there.

    (Set during the events of 2x02 "About Last Night")

    Summary

    All Alison could remember about falling was the wide open sky soaring away from her and the feeling of being untethered. She didn't hit the ground and perhaps, part of her had been left up there, caught on the window edge, looking at the sky...

    Lost.

    Summary

    Alison picked up the book from the looming shelf and turned it over, eyes skimming the bold and engraved letters on the hard sleeve cover. The book read 'Captain Benjamin Coldwell'. She felt the world freeze as it dawned on her who exactly the book may be about.

     

    In which Alison is rummaging through the library and finds a book that's about the Captain's life.

    Cue the other ghosts and herself reading it, crying their eyes out and the Captain being oblivious to it all.

    Summary

    When a key gets sent back to Button House after being stolen, it opens up old wounds for the Captain. Even with a couple of allies amongst the other ghosts the Captain tries to deal with these emotions as he always has, by closing himself off from them. What happens, though, if the key brought something else back with it as well?

    The Button House family band together (like only they can) to get to the Captain before he loses himself in his memories and, luckily for everyone, they bring reinforcements.

    Basically a long-winded idea about how to get the Captain his happy ending.
