And The Better Man, by obstinatrix
[Dorothy L. Sayers - Lord Peter Wimsey]
Title: And The Better Man
Summary: ‘We were together since the War began.
He was my servant, and the better man.’
Pairing: Lord Peter Wimsey/Bunter
Again, not a story written for me, but it could as well have been.
All the unspoken feelings between Bunter and Peter, that I can just imagine being there in canon. Lovely, understated, and somewhat heart-breaking.
That Bunter cared deeply for him, Peter did not for an instant doubt. On more than one occasion, he had surprised his sergeant regarding him with a look in his eyes which, under any other circumstance, he would not have hesitated to call the evidence of love. The first time this had happened, Bunter had flushed and looked away, rather suggesting to Peter that perhaps he, too, might have said the same. Of course, he may simply have been startled, or embarrassed at having been observed dreaming on the job, as it were. One could not leap to conclusions.
