    Summary

    Yusuf snorts, as if to say it’s mutual. But the Italian struggles to sit upright, wincing and swearing, and – Yusuf cannot pretend he does not want to know, not when a creature will always seek out its like, its matched half as the Greek philosopher Plato wrote, and there is nobody else in the world, to the best of his knowledge, like the two of them. He says, “What’s your name?”

    There’s a very long pause. He can hear the other man deciding whether to lie. But there is no purpose to it, except for bitterness, and the answer is uttered cold and shortly. “Nicolò.”

    (Or: The inevitable backstory.)

    Summary

    The famous Italian short story 'La Realtà di Tutto' is the tragic tale of two men who fall in love in the rolling hills of Calabria and are then separated by forces beyond their control. Nicolo di Genova- one of the few openly gay actors in cinema - has spent years trying to adapt it into a film, and he has assembled the best in the business to help him shepherd the film to success. There's only one thing missing just weeks from day one of shooting: the other leading man.

    When Joseph Al-Kaysani - a moderately successful comedian - is cast in what Variety calls, 'the most hotly anticipated film on Netflix's docket,' and what industry insiders call, 'that gay mafia movie,' it's a complete surprise. Joseph is best known for his unflinchingly honest storytelling style, but there's one thing he's never shared with his audience or his family - he is gay.

    But Joe isn't the only one with secrets.

    Summary

    A new plan hatches in Wei Wuxian’s head. If this nocturnal, bottom-feeding, slimy, invasive mudcat posing as a beautiful actor thinks he can sway Wei Wuxian with animal pictures and a sob story and an unbelievably stilted way of texting with still no dick pictures in the first five minutes of conversation, he has another thing coming. Wei Wuxian’s got it, alright, he has this in the fucking bag.

    Wei Wuxian plots to expose a catfish using strategic memes and turtle pictures while wiggling his way out of family dinner. Lan Wangji just wants companions.
