    Summary

    He was lightheaded as everything hit him in that moment. All he had gone through. All he had survived. The fact that he was out, and he was alive. The fact that this was the first time he’d touched someone and felt it on his skin since he’d dropped Joshua off at his mom’s the week of the test. And it was Tommy who got to hold the title of the first person to hug him in far too long. Tommy who had been kind to him even when stress was making them all snappish, and who had made jokes with him when things felt grim. Tommy who had been the only one he trusted when everyone else left him for dead, Tommy who fought by his side so loyally and who removed that horrible suit with such impossible tenderness.

    Gordon pressed his face into the shoulder of Tommy’s filthy polo shirt that smelled like sweat and blood but was warm and had probably been soft at some point, and he let out the loudest sob in his life.

    Summary

    “We can go back.” Bubby said, drawing something out from his coat. Gordon squinted through the dark. He shone his flashlight on the object.
    “Oh, shit, that-”
    “The portal gun.” Dr. Coomer breathed from beside him.
    “Bring it.” Gordon said.
    He saw Bubby’s finger depress the trigger and bright green radiated out from the mouth of the gun. He felt energy reaching towards him, into him, past him, colliding with every cell in his body. He was getting torn apart cell by cell, atom by atom. The water around him melted away, and so did the arching stone walls and the sounds of gunfire and singing. His eyes were open and closed and many, he had hundreds of arms and fingers but still felt the ache at the base of his elbow, there were colors in his mind and spilling from his mouth and then there was nothing.
    -------------------
    Bubby sends Gordon back and it doesn't go as planned.

    Summary

    “fuckin’ wrinkly,” Benrey hisses, literally hisses, wetting his lips. Gordon squirms away when the rough sandpapery texture of Benrey’s tongue dips down to lick the confused crease between his eyebrows. “so old.”

    “I’m twenty-seven,” Gordon huffs and tries to escape further along the bed, sighing when Benrey just follows, continuing to lick various wrinkles—including his smile wrinkles when he starts laughing from how ticklish he is. “Ben, please.”
