    Summary

    "Evil takes a human form in Freddie Mercury. Don't be fooled, because he may seem like your typical selfish, back-stabbing, slut-faced ho-bag. But in reality, he is so much more than that. He's the queen bee. The star. Those other two are just his little workers."

    Summary

    Not quite following the timeline and plot of Rocketman, Elton tells a story (from his rehab centre) that is more centred around his relationship with John Reid and the effort it took to get himself the help he needed.

    “Every bad path starts with one terribly bad decision. My bad path started with one bad decision named John Reid which started a chain reaction of bad decisions I like to call “drugs fuck you up”.”

    Summary

    WARNING: CONTAINS POTENTIALLY TRIGGERING BODY IMAGE AND WEIGHT ISSUES, EATING DISORDERS AND BEHAVIORS RELATED TO SUCH, VOMITING (BULIMIA), AND MENTIONS OF DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE. Not romanticized, but fair warning. This is not RPF. This is written as an interpretation of the characters from the film "Rocketman," not at all intended to be an account of the lives of these people in real life. Don't like, don't read.

    Drabbles from bits of Elton's life where he struggles with his body image and develops an unhealthy mental association between his weight and his ability to be loved.

    Summary

    Here is my take on the extended scene for Take Me To The Pilot from Rocketman (2019) starting from the party all the way through the good stuff. This is the first time I’ve ever written something about characters who are real people, but I choose to see them as dramatized versions of the people and therefore still just characters in a film.

    I hope you like it. I apologize for the written out dialogue for John, I just hear his beautiful voice in my head and can’t help but write it the way I hear it. Because I’m trash. Enjoy my trash. Thank you.

    Summary

    Making it through this crazy life with Melina and Sharon.

    It is surprising, the types of love that a person can find even when not actively searching for that sort. But friendships are born in various places between the most unsuspecting of persons. And those who don't expect ever to gain others' love are often the ones who need it the most.

    (Or, fifteen snapshots taken over the course of the life of friendship between Freddie Mercury and Elton John.)

    Summary

    Things were grand. Brilliant even. Everything had gone their way. They were top of the pops. They had certified bronze, platnum, AND gold records. They could not walk down the street without hearing at least ONE grey haired ol’ tramp singing their tunes...

    So why isn't Elton happy?

    Summary

    Elton breaks up with John Reid and spends the next fifteen years avoiding loneliness through the most toxic means possible. Bernie tries to help by giving Elton everything he's capable of, which consists of more than what Bernie suspected but which doesn't quite include everything Elton actually needs.

    It may, in the fullness of time, be enough.
