    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

    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

    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.

    Update: Dec 20- I finally finished this! Thanks for reading.

    Summary

    Reggie Dwight did his very best to please his parents. He finished school, he worked alongside his father doing the most boring desk job ever, and he started dating a wonderful woman (even if he could never remember her name.)

    His life was dull, but he dealt with it the best he could.

    Enter Bernie Taupin, and the grand adventure begins.

    Summary

    So yes, his mum really was quite taken with John, like he was already a part of the family. Which was great. Better than he could possibly hope for. Yes, it was.

    It was just absolutely wonderful.

    Summary

    (Originally a headcanon that I posted on my Tumblr, and a bit inspired by a song from Six: The Musical.)

    While Elton John was in rehab (around after his confrontation with figments of his family, John Reid, Bernie Taupin, and his younger-self and before Bernie goes to visit him), he sends copies of a letter he wrote to his parents, Bernie, John Reid, Ray Williams, and Renate Blauel, saying this...
