    Summary

    It’s not that Jan’s stupid, or blind. It’s just that it’s easier not to think about it.

     

    Or, visiting hours get a bit crowded.

    and Jan lets his eyes roam over them. He’s thinking about when it started – or if it has yet – if maybe Dele knows and Eric doesn’t, if maybe they’re still dancing around each other, if maybe they’ve had some sort of awful heart-to-heart about how they could do this, or how they shouldn’t, or how it might torpedo their careers. The sort of conversation he should have had, years ago, with –

    A bet's a bet, until it's not. Dele's not sure he knows where the line is, anymore.

    It’s all so damn sensible. It’s a bit like when Dele first arrived, brazening everything out with his heart in his mouth and his chin tilted stiffly upwards, barely sleeping, missing Milton Keynes so much it hurt, and determined not to show it – and there was Eric, solid and careful and understated, old and young at once, English and not, strange and not at all, like an echo thrown back through time to remind him of a previous life. A bit like gravity: inexorable. Freeing and tethering at the same time.

     

    What a splendid bit of writing this is! Let me just, chuck in my fanfic whitterings right now.

    Summary

    Christian and Vincent both unintentionally give one another the exact Christmas gift they need.

    Or...Vincent is deep in his feelings and searching for a place to belong, Christian is trying to move on with his life even though he's not sure he wants to, and Toby's the friend we all need who tries to keep everyone from getting hurt by their bad decisions.

    Now featuring cake and drunken party antics.

    So look at me now
    It's finally Christmas and I'm home
    Head indoors to get out of this weather
    And I don't know how but the closest friends I've ever known are all inside
    Singing together

    Yeah, I know, it's a rare pairing, but give it a chance. Although the story is stand-alone and can be read in its own right, it's actually a part of a larger universe in the fic. With this fic, it's Vincent and Christian around at Christmas, and all its attendant dramas and it's nice to see how they get around it. Also, Toby is my Patronus in this fic, tbh.
