    Summary

    "I'm going to see Francis, and I'm going to do it now," James says, very clearly. "Do you really think anything that you can do will stop me?" 
    He meets the doctor’s gaze. He lets him peer inside: see the ugly rage, his luminous lack of sensibility. He lets the boy glimpse a flash of what James has seen – chewed-on bones, hasty graves cut into the ground: the horror and softness of things so immense they would warp both past and future. 
    Turns out, James has no need to say anything more.

    Summary

    At night - he still thinks about time for sleep as 'night', even when polar day spreads above him, immeasurable and empty - at night he becomes Terror. He grasps the ice with his anchors, and the snow stays under his fingernails. His ribs are aching, cracking under the slow, blind, unrelenting pressure. One time he wakes up from acute pain in his back, and in those foggy moments between sleeping and waking, when mind threads strange routes, he thinks with certainty - his back aches, because the Terror's mainmast has given in, has broken under the wind and its own weight.

    Summary

    Francis wants someone to say yes to him, and James will be that person – but Francis needs coaxing and reassurance that it would be a good thing – that it would be good and happy and right.

    It’s not even just James doing the coaxing, which on the whole probably makes things a bit easier.
