    Summary

    After more than a year on furlough, Lieutenant Edward Little gathers all his courage and pays a visit to a scandalously specialized bawdy house that has intrigued him since he first heard of it. There, he meets Mr. Thomas Jopson, a former Naval steward who has taken on alternate employment as a means to stay near his ailing mother.

    Edward quickly falls in love with the remarkable man, but is faced with the uncomfortable question: can somebody who makes love for a living ever really love him back? And even if he does, can there ever be a future for them?

    Written for The Terror Big Bang. Art by Sasheenka here and here.

    Summary

    "He last saw Thomas seven months ago, when Halifax was in the full bloom of summer. They made love for a final time in Thomas' overwarm bedroom, and, as Thomas dressed him with the precision of a man who never forgot his years as as steward, Edward admitted, 'It is more difficult to leave you every time I go.'

    Thomas produced a comb. Running it through Edward's greying hair, he said, 'You know how to solve that, my love.'"

    Summary

    It is not, by any stretch, Thomas’ job to see after Terror’s first officer, but how can he help himself, really, when the Lieutenant will insist on looking so doleful, and so in need of him?

    Winter, 1847. Thomas Jopson is adverse to half measures.

    Summary

    It starts with a long line at Tesco, a call from a random phone number, and a magazine edited by a man who drinks iced tea from a whisky bottle. Thomas Jopson answers the phone, and it changes everything.

    Or, it starts with a funeral he didn’t attend, or maybe with a wedding. Edward Little has never been good at choosing who to love, and he’s only getting worse.

    A slow burn modern AU about healing, love, and finding a place that feels like home.
