Orlando is putting together a Ten Years Later party. It takes him longer to decide to do it than it does to plan it. This is celebrating pain and suffering in New Zealand, not someone's plastic surgery in Hollywood. He tells himself this isn't ego massaging, it's the film industry equivalent of a ten year school reunion.
"Ten years of work buys you overnight success," he jots down in the mass e-mail. "Ten years of success is buying you this party. Come alone, bring a friend or three, just let me know how much food to buy."
Half of the recipients write back to tell him, "double the amount of food you're thinking of buying. And then triple."
Ian brings his current boyfriend. Bean brings his current girlfriend. Viggo brings his pet director, who spends most of the party looking wild and the rest of it drunk on the floor.
Elijah is pretending that he has not spent most of the last decade pretending to himself that he is taller than he is. Orlando can sympathize; in retrospect, he's spent the last decade proving his hair color.
Karl doesn't show up. Orlando reminds himself that he didn't expect him to.
