A/N: Mortimer really does have a first name



The captain’s old U-boat colleagues call him Werner, and that's as it should be, but I still call him by his title, and that's as it should be too. Even in our dreams I called him by his title in the most intimate moments and somehow that was always appropriate too.

As for me, well it's the same. He started off calling me Mr Mortimer, then just Mortimer. Can't remember when anyone last called me Tom.

Maybe I should ask the captain to call me Tom when we're alone. Maybe I might do that tonight. I wonder what he'll say...
