    Summary

    But then he met Henry’s eyes, and they were so vulnerable, so scared, so young, and he knew what Henry was going to say before he even said it.

     

    ”I’m gay,” Henry whispered, a tear finally slipping down his cheek. “I’ve—I’ve never told anyone that before. Fuck. Fuck.”

     

    ”Henry...” Shaan started. He couldn’t finish. He was prepared to deal with mass shootings and PR scandals. He had no idea what to do when a grieving teenage royal was coming out to him.

    ——

    Or, when Bea checks herself out of rehab, Shaan gives seventeen-year-old Henry the strength he needs to go find her.

    Summary

    So while we all knew that the 2020 written in the book would be glorious fiction, we didn’t realize that reality would throw us something to take 2020 even further away from the book’s events. So I’m going to play with adding a fragment of that reality into the story and see what happens. The story starts picking up the timeline after their late-February trip to Paris. I’ve messed a bit with the timeline of COVID-related political events and a very little bit with the RWRB March timeline, but overall tried to keep it consistent with what happened in the beginning of the pandemic and with canon.

    Title is from one of the best ever Bowie songs, and the lyrics are so fucking beautiful and perfect for these two.

    Summary

    It was a look, a transformation. I had seen it a million times before. My husband's face could change from joyous laughter or sweet affection to hunger, wanting in seconds. His eyes would change first. Their lustre remained but the breathtaking, sparkling blue dissolved into a dark, undefinable shade that foretold what was to come.

    Summary

    Henry’s a single father trying to raise his daughter in the lower Manhattan area.

    Low in spirits and luck, Alexander is glad to be getting back to teaching after the summer he thought would never end.

    Parent-teacher nights, messy emotions, and perhaps a bit of romance ensues.
