    Summary

    Every year since they were thirteen, Reggie and Luke have been going to visit Reggie's grandparents in Georgia for the summer. The world is a little different there, and every time they go it becomes clearer that they're a little different there, too.

    Rated T because of some non-descriptive sex later on... there's also some swearing. I don't really know if that's an accurate rating, so if you think it should be M instead or sth, hit me up!

    Summary

    Alex comes to Reggie’s rescue once more. He swings his legs out of Reggie’s lap and onto the floor, settling in an upright position, and points his drumstick at Luke accusingly.

    “Are you late to rehearsal because you wanted to cut off your shirt sleeves?”

    Luke doesn't cut off most of his shirt sleeves until after he and Alex have been broken up for a while, because Alex was 95% of his impulse control. The new look awakens something in Reggie.

    Summary

    Alex forces himself to look up, finding Willie’s inquisitive gaze. “I want to take my time with you,” he admits.

    “Okay, hotdog,” Willie breathes, “that was a very sweet way to say that you want to court me, but you're tired of your bandmates walking in on us.”

    Alex could probably grill hotdogs right now with all of the heat blazing from the tips of his ears.

    Or: The tour bus is small, Alex's bandmates are oblivious himbos, and it's a recipe for some sitcom levels of hijinks.

    Summary

    Reggie likes to pretend that he doesn’t believe in fate, because it’s existence would imply that some sort of deity out there hates him.

    When he stumbles into Luke Patterson’s toilet stall at an award show, though, the only occupied one in a garishly bright bathroom, it’s like even the marbled blue slabs are mocking him. His malevolent god might as well have slammed a neon sign over his head that reads GOTCHA.

    This is a companion piece to Force of Nature by goodluckgettingtosleep! Check that one out first (especially to avoid spoilers).

    Summary

    "Sometimes I wonder how much we’re all kidding ourselves about being happy. Don’t get me wrong, there are so many moments of genuine happiness, like when the band plays a show or the holidays come around or my friends and I have movie nights, but sometimes I notice these little things about the people around me- how they’re trying to numb their own individual pain. It’s weird though, they all do it in different ways. I guess they all have their own numbing agents."

    a look into reggie peters' diary in the 90s, how he falls in love with his best friend, and maybe how he learns to love himself more, too.
