It's that time again. There are more recs to be had. The flavour of the month: The History Boys (yes, I have come late to this party).

Eight Candles by kaydeefalls Posner doesn't believe, but he lights the candles anyway. They keep the shadows at bay. (Scripps/Posner)

now for a breath i tarry by kaydeefalls Eleven verses Hector never taught them (but Scripps learned anyway). (Scripps/Posner -- and possibly my favourite HB fic out there)

you can't explain away the poetry by kaydeefalls "Right," Dakin said. "It's time we finally relieved you of the terrible burden of your virginity." (Scripps/Posner)

Burn Invisible and Dim by byzantienne DAKIN: Are we scarred for life, you think? / SCRIPPS: We must hope so. Perhaps it will turn me into Proust. (Scripps, Posner, gen)

Will as it Moves towards Deed by yeats The summer after his first year at Oxford, Posner goes back to Sheffield. (Scripps/Posner)

Remaining History by tophatdance Just a rainy Saturday in Durham, and a phone call between Scripps and Posner. (Scripps/Posner, cozy)

to put away childish things by solvent90 "When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." (Scripps/Posner, implied Posner/other)

The Accompanist by earis Playing the piano was, in origin, a way to keep out of the muck of things. Unfortunately for Scripps, the muck of things is impossible to escape. (ambiguous gen, Scripps, Posner, Dakin)

Poetry for Professors by linckia_blue The students discuss meanings and feelings and imagery and the use of juxtaposition or other wordy poetic techniques. Posner thinks of Scripps’s morning smile and the shapes his hands trace in the air when he does something he knows will make Posner happy. (Scripps/Posner)

And, to be honest... if anyone can point me in the direction of ace!Scripps fic, I will love you forever. For that matter, just rec me your favourite Scripps fic in general.
