Fixed grin, only not exactly fixed because it constantly quivers and threatens to turn into laughter but never does, because the author has practised and maybe perfected control, over a long period and in not exactly this context, but I dunno, if I define it properly, perhaps exactly this context?

Like what you read? Give Stuart James a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
