    Summary

    If Theo and Boris hadn’t been in Vegas together at the exact same moment, they would both be dead today. Boris knows it like he knows his own name. He'd be rotting in a ditch somewhere in Poland or Ukraine, and Theo- he'd be long gone, a smear on the Nevada pavement. But while the painting had kept Boris alive after their separation- what had kept Theo afloat? With no goldfinch to keep him tethered to the earth, and no Boris to dig him up if he got buried too deep?

    If he were to scour the globe looking for him now, what would he find?

    or

    Boris and Theo think of each other for ten years. They don't always realize it.

    Summary

    The smell was almost painful, the last couple years concentrated into one sensation, cruelly familiar, heart-wrenchingly Boris. It was every stale cigarette, every beer we drank, every steak he had shoved into his coat, every time we had smoked weed up in Boris’ room, the chlorine from every time we jumped in the pool, too fucked to think to take off their clothes, laying on the edge after with our feet in the water, laughing until I thought I would be sick. It was Boris, his essence down to the core, and it hurt more than anything had in a long time.

    Summary

    Sally uses phone calls like a lifeline. Bobby, it seems, may be more like Don than she would have liked.

    In response to (parts of) this prompt: "I'd love to receive something with eerie and unsettling undertones, especially of the psychological kind. And/or something that explores Sally and Bobby’s relationship as it grows through the years, especially if it runs parallel to their relationship (or lack thereof) with Don."
