    Summary

    "Among all the trash was a pregnancy test and as Brian stared at Freddie, it clicked.

    Freddie hadn’t brought anyone home, or stayed the night with anyone- how could he, when the world took one look at the mark on his neck and thought he was taken? There was, by all logic, only one person he could have slept with.

    Brian and Deacy had both been away a month ago…

    Roger."

    OR: one drunken, impulsive night changes everything, leaving Roger and Freddie with a lot of feelings to sort out.

    Summary

    Part four of the love or something like it series. You should probably read some of that before getting into this. It won't make sense without it.

    I don’t know if I’ll ever be willing to admit it, especially seeing Bernie taking great pains in both therapy and meetings to keep himself on track. It would break his heart. I have been lying to him. But that’s what we do, isn’t it? Do our best to get better for each other, then hide the real facts?

    Or... Elton and Bernie are doing their best for each other in their quasi-relationship, but it seems even their best will never be good enough...

    Summary

    "Just take care of yourself."

    Seems simple enough, right? It didn't take a genius to figure out that that's what Elton was supposed to be doing while in rehab. Just sitting back, relaxing, and spending time taking care of himself. But he couldn't even do that, and he figured it was only a matter of time before Bernie and John found out about his failure to do the one thing he was supposed to do. He didn’t want to have to look the two of them in the eyes and tell them that he had failed, didn’t want to have to see their disappointed faces staring him down before abandoning him.

    But now it's just him, wandering aimlessly through everything and hoping that he has the strength to pull himself together before he spirals out of control.

    Summary

    "For fucks sake Sharon, her Facebook profile picture is of when her grandparents took her to Lourdes to celebrate her confirmation."

     

    Sharon knows she should have listened to her stepfather, she knows it's a bad idea to let herself fall for her very cute, very Catholic roommate.

    Hell, she's named after not one but two saints.

    Too late. Whoops.

    Summary

    What if Elton in the very beginning of his launch to stardom had a child? A daughter who he barely saw, due to his obligations and all around lifestyle. She comes every summer to visit for at least two weeks, and each year he seems to get worse. Or maybe she is just old enough to understand to a degree...

    This year, Amelia made a promise to get to the bottom of it, and finally get her father the help he needs. If only her stepfather would stop blocking her every move, she might actually be able to figure this shit out....

    Summary

    Bernie honestly couldn’t remember a time when this wasn’t happening; couldn’t remember a time when John and Elton hadn’t been fighting about one thing or another.

    Well… Maybe he could remember a time when things hadn’t been so bad for his friend. Maybe in the beginning before shit began hitting the fan; when John actually cared about him, when his life wasn’t completely consumed by alcohol or drugs or shoving his fingers down his throat after every meal.

    Back when it was just Elton and Bernie, taking on the world together.

    Summary

    If there was one thing Reggie Dwight knew, it was that his parents were doing their very best to kill him.  Whether it be by their hand or his own, he was never quite certain. He suffered day after day due to their loving ministrations towards each other and himself.  Nothing was ever good enough for his father. Nothing was ever simple with his mother. The mind games they so enjoyed caused nothing but pain to their only son.

    How Reg broke away and paved a life for himself, even with their words etched in his skin, thanks to his best mate and partner, Bernie.

    (Written mostly from Bernie's pov)

    Summary

    Bernie had settled into his 'simple' life as a single father of two, even if he now knew he was destined for much more.

    Elton had gone on to become a superstar, but no amount of fame could heal the hole in his heart left by Bernie's decision to leave him.

    What happens when their paths cross yet again?
