    Summary

    AU. Slow burn.

    In which we get a detailed account of all the times Ian and Mickey meet within the span of 167 days.

    Here's a visual aid that pretty much sums up the first 10 chapters or so. And, let's face it, probably most of the rest of it too.

    Day 79 (167)

    In which the author hopefully compensates for a 1 month absence with a 7000 word chapter?

    Summary

    The Prompt: Ian: sex worker (male escort, explicit videos: stripping, masturbation, etc) Mickey: client who's an avid fan who gets up the courage to hire ian for "the boyfriend experience" I saw a porn star who said she only sleeps with 1 client & it inspired me

    Ch. 21 Excerpt
    His mood was dropping, the protective fantasy bubble of their apartment —of hot morning sex, and breakfast at the kitchen table, and laying together on the couch— melted away, exposing what was really there. It happened so fast, and Ian’s mouth got this sour taste that he wanted to spit out. It had been so good today. It had been sweet. Then Mickey put that ring on, and… Ian was the secret. Ian was the thing he didn't want to be.

    Summary

    Mickey Milkovich was 19 when he was forced to fight. He had been expecting it to happen. What he hadn't expected was fighting an unknown enemy for three years and constantly losing his friends. He hated it with a passion. He had lost hope. That was until the strangest thing happened to him. Ian Gallagher happened.
    ~
    Ian Gallagher was only 6 when he ran away from The Community. Nobody cared that he was smarter then the rest of them. No one listened when he said he worked out the enemy's schedule for when they would drop bombs. He was invisible. He sure as hell wasn't going to grow up to die in the war. 15 years on and he still hasn't been found. He spent most of his days in his safe place, only venturing into the ruined city for food. Always silent, always hidden. Until he met Mickey Milkovich of course.
    ~
    500 years might seem a very long time to most people. To everyone in fact. Except for Jeff Glover. He was used to time passing. He never really took notice of it until he started a war, possibly killing the only reason he had for living. Jeff was struggling. He had created a mess and had no idea how he could ever fix it. His only hope was finding Ian. If he could find Ian, maybe it would all be okay.
