    Summary

    It's three weeks after Theo left that Boris burns out. He's tired of drugs and selling drugs, and most of all, he's tired of not having Theo. He gathers up his money, gives the rest of his coke to Kotku as a goodbye present, and goes to the Barbour's house in New York City. Only, Theo isn't there.

    Summary

    I’ve missed Boris for so long. I don’t think I realized what reasons I missed him for— it wasn’t because we were getting drunk every night, or stealing from the convenient stores, but because I was in love with him.
    I sit dumbfounded at the edge of my bed, and I feel like a teenager again. That dumb, sad, teenager.

    Summary

    Theo has to fight the thought that Boris is coming, they hadn't thought it through and he was never going to see him.

    Summary

    - small variation for the ending part of "Purple cow" chap.
    Boris x Theo
    [I've translated it myself, hope there aren't mistakes!]

    " «Yes yes» he muttered when he resurfaced from the water jet, his hair thrown backwards, perhaps the first time I saw his face uncovered. Rivulets of water flowed along his face, went down to his eyelids and were caught in the eyelashes, the skin that glowed softly under the dirty light of the bathroom.
    His eyes clenched, his angular profile bathed in a veil of icy water, his chapped lips had reinvigorated and discolesed the perfect white teeth that he had redone. I looked at him mesmerized for a few seconds, he was like a venus reborn from the sea. Maybe even more beautiful. "

    Summary

    Theo didn’t know what he was doing there. He made a point to say as such.

    The man he’d been told to see-- the owner of the upstate-nowhere country home being flooded with natural light from all angles-- turned slightly away from the counter where he was preparing coffee. He’d offered Theo some but he much preferred the Scotch he could see in the cabinet by the man’s head.

    “Are you sure? I can make it stronger-- or weaker-- to your taste.”

    “Yes, really.” Theo said. He avoided crossing his legs in his wicker chair, and placing his hands too delicately in his lap as he worried his knuckles together. He didn’t know what he was doing there.

    (OR a short exploration of what would happen if Theo ever met with Francis outside of the engagement party-- and their socialite circle. Turns out gay men who have killed have something in common for a bit of a friendship)

    Summary

    - Leggera variazione canonica della fine del cap "La Mucca Viola"
    Borix x Theo
    Dal testo:
    " «Sì sì» accennò lui quando riemerse dal getto, i capelli gettati all’indietro, forse la prima volta che vidi la sua faccia per intero. Rivoli d’acqua gli scorrevano lungo il viso, scendevano fino alle palpebre e rimanevano catturati nelle ciglia, la pelle che riluceva soffusamente sotto la luce sporca del bagno.
    Gli occhi serrati, il suo profilo spigoloso bagnato da una patina d’acqua gelida, le labbra screpolate s’erano rinvigorite e schiudevano i bianchi denti perfetti che si era fatto rifare. Lo guardai rapito per qualche secondo, simile ad una venere rinata dal mare. Forse anche più bello. "

    Summary

    I am the first to admit, I am not a good person. I knew it, my father knew it, everyone at school knew it. Perhaps at one time, in another life, under different circumstances, I could have been different. A good man? Not very likely. But a better person? Maybe.

    Perhaps in that life, I would have chosen differently. I would have made the right decision. I wouldn’t have pushed away the one good thing in my life. But I will never know, because I was selfish.

    And I will never be able to take back what I have done. Never.

    Summary

    Ecrit en collaboration avec la fantastique Manon.

    "- Je comprends pas pourquoi tu t'évertues à voir cette fille.
    - Je quoi ? Parle anglais si tu veux qu'je te comprenne, vieux. Et puis, elle est très bien, cette fille. T'as quoi contre elle ?
    - Je sais pas. Je pensais... je pensais que ça t'allais, ce qu'y avait entre nous.
    Boris haussa un sourcil et sourit d'un air sombre.
    - Quoi, c'est tout ? T'es juste jaloux ?
    Comme Theo ne répondait pas, il gravit la distance qui les séparait et lui assena un coup dans l'épaule avant de lui voler la pipe à opium.
    - Là, Potter. T'as pas à être jaloux. Tu sais bien que je suis un électron libre."

    Summary

    There is an awkward silence for a couple of seconds and suddenly he wants to ask him what age he is again and who his parents are and if he needs help, he suddenly looks so much younger that he did at the beginning of this conversation but he doesn’t say any of that because he knows kids like this (he was a kid like this) and he knows he’ll run or he’ll deny everything, he’ll treat him like he is insane and maybe he is, he is the one trying to keep a conversation going with the world’s tiniest drug dealer.

    Or an au in which Sirius Black adopts a 11 year old Boris Pavlikovsky.

    Summary

    Long after the events of The Goldfinch and when there would no longer be consequences of people knowing the truth about the painting or Amsterdam or any other crime, Theo's book is published and released to the public. Not long after, a sequel is published by Boris's son. From Theo's old diaries and some of his own, Jacus tells the story of his father's relationship with Theo from Antwerp until their inevitable deaths.
