  3. Summary

    I enjoyed Agatha's POV, and wanted her to have a chance to find out about Simon and Baz and to tell her old friends what she really had been feeling all those years. So, I decided to write my own version in which she does!

    In 3rd person, because 1st person narration is not really my area. I anticipate 3 relatively short, self-contained but connected stories. All will be rated T for swearing and occasional mature topics. I am American, so American slang and misspelling may occasionally (or frequently) appear, but I'll do my best to fix them where noted. Concrits and Brit-picks much appreciated!

    Summary

    Hopefully enough time has passed since the election that you can read this, remember a more optimistic time, and enjoy the love story. This takes place during the 2016 presidential election, when we all had so much more hope.

    The original post on tumblr was as follows: ok but! political talk radio Host Mr. Crappy a la Stephanie Miller, Bitty is the young call screener/intern and Jack is a Humorless Liberal who calls in but gets inexplicably popular because he’s such a great straight man against Mr Crappy’s bombastic style.

    This is a pro-Hillary and anti-Trump story, so reader be aware.

    Summary

    When Ransom meets Adam Birkholtz for the first time he’s wearing a t-shirt that’s half a size too small for him, jeans that are worn out in the ratty way, and Birkenstocks that look about a thousand years old. His glasses are crooked on his nose and he introduces himself with a loud, booming laugh even though Ransom hasn’t said anything particularly funny. Ransom thinks it’s the kind of laugh that moves mountains, full and round and beautiful.

    “Everyone calls me Holster,” Adam says, squeezing Ransom’s hand before he lets it go.

    “Cool,” Ransom’s smile back is a reflex, the easiest, most natural response to Holster’s toothy grin. “I’m Ransom.”

    “Sick nickname,” Holster tosses an arm around Ransom’s shoulder’s without warning. He is very large and very warm, and his breath smells like cinnamon. “You know what, Ransom? I think we’re gonna be tight.”

    Ransom laughs, it rises up in him fast and urgent, like excess happiness spilling from his lips, “sure, bro. Whatever you say.”
