    Summary

    "James wants to throw himself out of the window. He wants to break something. He wants to punch the other two men in the face. He wants to go back to the lake. He wants to run all the way to Oliver and kiss him until both their lives are on the line. He wants to die and kill and he really, really just wants to look Oliver in the eyes again."

    the universe is keen on keeping James Farrow alive, no matter how hard he tries to go against that, and when Oliver finally gets out of jail, he might understand why.

    Summary

    There was always some sort of magic in the art of performing, he thought. Something compelling in following the rules of the game. He loves her, she loves him, they separate due to improbable fate. Or it can be she loves him not, he loves her, they get together due to improbable fate. It felt so much easier to have lines prepared in your head, knowing your enters and exits, so easy for the wind to blow southerly even when the boat headed for west.

    When high-paced poetry became the language, every action became justifiably art, such was the rule of the game.

     

    Or, when James found out that Oliver didn’t applied to any of the rules he build himself with, art became useless.

    Summary

    "Do you know what this whole thing means?"

    Alexander had thought he knew, but when he saw the way James gasped and shook his head as if to clear it every time they were done with the scene, the way his eyes dragged over Alexander's face with an expression he'd never once, in four years, seen before, when he realized he was barely able to sleep without getting drunk or high because he couldn't stop seeing the image of James' pretty lips pursed in anger burned in the back of his eyelids, he decided to stop trying to understand anything.

    Summary

    Alexander would always, always go back to the lake. It was a constant presence, a never-ending pull towards the void inside himself. He wondered if he hadn't drowned alongside Richard on that morning.

    Summary

    Alexander grinned at him. He had sharp, sharp canine teeth, and as they shone terribly white on the darkness, Colin felt like a bright object caught in the sight of an omnivorous raven, only waiting to be possessed.

    Summary

    "For animal work, Camilo had assigned him the leopard. He spent a month prowling around our room in the dark before he was sufficiently absorbed in the role to pounce me in my sleep. I spent the next half hour waiting for my heart to stop hammering while I assured him that, yes, my cry of terror had been entirely genuine." - If We Were Villains, Scene 9
