"Byers does this thing every semester called the Muse Project, where you pick a person or a subject and your final piece for the course has to focus on them. Then at the end of the semester, there’s this coffeehouse where everyone invites their muse and shares their work. So obviously everyone picks whoever they’re dating at the time, and then they break up halfway through the semester and all the writing turns super angsty. Which would be fine, except I don’t write about people, like, ever.”
That’s a lie. He does write about people, but always in an abstract sense, and never more than once—the curve of a hip under his hand or the promise of a kiss on his neck, nothing you could spend a semester on. Before Samwell, and sometimes still, there never seems to be anyone permanent enough to write about.
A minute or so goes by before Dex speaks. “Does it have to be romantic?”
“Uh, no, not really. Just someone that inspires you.”
“So write about me.”
Dex gets caught checking Nursey out in the locker room. Nursey, as always, makes it weird.
"Nursey." Bitty sounded about as disappointed as Nursey felt.
"Um. Yes. I'm stuck."
"There's, like, ropes and shit." Nursey isn't exactly sure what he's saying or how to explain his situation; he's still relatively drunk.
(Derek Nurse does dumb shit and Eric Bittle is a Good Bro, at least initially.)
"Being gay was hard, that was just a fact of life. Being gay in rural Georgia was really hard. Being gay in rural Georgia and getting abducted by aliens was a level of unfairness and cruelty that left Eric Bittle going over the span of his entire 19 years of existence to try to figure out exactly where he went wrong."
In which Eric Bittle, baker and mostly wholesome Georgia gay boy, gets abducted by aliens, and then the government, and might have to team up with a group of even bigger freaks than himself to become government issued superheroes to make it home. Or else, maybe accept the fact that these freaks might just be his new home, or something lame and weird like that.
