    Summary

    “Fred says it’s the light that does it,” continues Amundsen thoughtfully, as if Lecointe had not spoken at all. “It chooses a man and then it fills him, all summer long, like a sort of capacitor. It stands to reason I will run out of light at some point. And then the cycles will end.”

    Summary

    “Perhaps we should have both been men.” Kathleen supplies.

    “Captain and first mate.”

    “We would have been sworn enemies.”

    “We would have never met.”

    Kathleen pauses and settles her entire weight on Oriana, knowing that she is strong enough to hold the both of them up. “That's right. You would have gone North and I, South. We would see each other only briefly at balls and banquets and I would have wondered about you. But the world is too vast.”

    Summary

    In 1914, the analytical engine had been in existence for over half a century but was still largely rudimentary compared to its modern incarnation. For the Endurance to be fitted with a “brain” was a great expense, and makes the wreck a unique oddity. Some have argued that the wreck be considered not an artefact to be left undisturbed, but rather a potentially living survivor of the expedition in need of rescue.

    Summary

    In the autumn of 1908, Apsley Cherry-Garrard went to stay with Dr. Edward Wilson and his wife Oriana at a hunting lodge in Scotland owned by Cherry-Garrard’s cousin Reggie Smith. These pages were recently discovered stuffed into the lining of a trunk in the attic of the Cherry-Garrard family home at Lamer, and appear to be from the explorer’s private journal written during this period. Given the content of these pages, it is readily apparent why they were hidden, for they would have shocked the sensibilities of Edwardian society. Never before published, these entries offer a new insight into the relationship between these key figures of the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.

    Summary

    After so many years, Amundsen is more than familiar with the strange effect of the magnetic poles. But this is the first time that he has been flung back to the start of one interminable day without any sense of what it is that the repetition of loops wants him to achieve.

    Summary

    There was someone jogging down the block in the middle of the snowstorm.

    He must be insane, Roald thought. Of course, Roald himself was jogging in the middle of the snowstorm too.

    Summary

    After the Franklin expedition disappeared into the Arctic never to return, ships were sent after them in hopes of finding anyone or anything that may explain what had happened. In 1849 Captain Ross stopped short just a few miles off Beechy before turning back. Too exhausted to try for a second rescue expedition the first Lieutenant turned Captain Robert McClure took command.

    Without realising it they similarly they fell into the same traps as their predecessors, facing off scurvy, starvation, madness and mutiny. Death is slow in the great white nothing.

    Summary

    If he was a hallucination he was probably just trying to spare Cook's feelings, which was really very kind of him. And if Amundsen was, in fact, a ghost, well then it stood to reason that he was simply embarrassed at having died in a plane rather than in any sensible sort of way, like on a ship or frozen inside a glacier while on skiing holiday.

    Summary

    It's Polar Institute Academicals' first away match of the Twenty Leagues Tournament, and Shackleton has a plan. Unfortunately for the team, his plan has very little to do with football and more to do with room allocations at the local Travelodge: namely, ensuring that the room he chooses for himself and Frank Hurley only has one bed.

    Unfortunately, that's as far as his plan goes.

    Summary

    On George Back's Frozen Strait expedition of 1836, second mate Robert McClure watches first mate Graham Gore. Mostly, he watches him injure himself, because apparently Gore doesn't think frostbite applies to him.

    A standalone fic about Back's expedition on Terror, feat. two special boys, which also functions as an epilogue to Weathervane Wanton if you're nasty.

    For the Terror Bingo prompt snow blindness.
