Written for Porn Battle XIV, though it's barely PG. My first fic in the fandom; still feeling my way. I don't usually attempt this level of pastiche, but apparently O'Brian's diction and phrasing is as much a kink for me as anything else.

Title: Improving Lessons
Fandom: The Aubrey-Maturin series, Patrick O'Brian
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Stephen/Sophie
Rating: PG
Word count: ~1,400
Spoilers: this is a coda for the last chapter of H.M.S. Surprise --spoilers through to that point.
Disclaimer: not mine, no profit

a/n: for the prompts: teaching, sharing, comfort

Summary: Surely it was not the thing, not the thing at all, for one man to kiss another man’s betrothed, no matter how particular a friend the first man was of the second.

  • apparently O'Brian's diction and phrasing is as much a kink for me as anything else.

    Ummm, hmmmm.

    Looking forward to reading this for my end of the day reward.
  • Terrific fun and lovely use of language and characterization.
    • Aw, thank you--I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was shamefully fun to write, though I think I'll cut down the pastiche if I write any more fic in the fandom.

      Thanks for reading!
  • idiom!kink--it's a thing, I'm sure it is! I get it from POB and Life on Mars and those Tana French mysteries.
