“Are you Techno’s boyfriend?”
“Sure am, who the hell is this?” Type growls into the phone. “This better be good, I don’t have the time to be dealing with you right now.”
“I’m his father.”
“...I don’t know who Techno is.”
Part 2 of a Tharntype AU in which Tharn, Type, and Techno are in a polyamorous relationship with each other and befriend a lesbian couple that Techno met at Jeed's bar. One night, the five of them and Champ are at Tharn and Type’s apartment when they all realize how tired they are of hiding their respective relationships. This leads to Fah having an idea: all five of them should come out to their parents in front of each other to get it out of the way. Techno knows how his dad will react and decides against coming out that night, trying to find a good time to break the news to him. With the other four deciding to come out as gay or polyamorous, some of their parents supportive and some of their parents threatening to disown their child, the tension grows between partners and leads to some revelations about themselves.

“I really, really need to talk to you whenever you’re free,” Techno says, his normal cheery tone now laced with sorrow.
“About what? Are you okay?” Tharn asks, obviously concerned. His voice is so warm and calm. He doesn’t even know. A rush of anxiety washes over Techno and he starts shaking a little.
“Everything’s fine. I just need to tell you some things that I should tell you in person. Just wait until we can have a full conversation. I’ll explain everything then.”
“Okay. I have band practice tomorrow, can we meet up after?”
“That’s fine,” Techno mumbles, before he realizes something. “Can I ask you for a favor?”
“Of course, what do you need?”
“Don’t tell Type you’re seeing me. Just tell him you guys had a late practice. Please.”
Techno has three problems: One, he knows about Type’s childhood trauma. Two, he has feelings for Type. Who’s completely in love with Tharn. Both problems cause Techno to feel a lot of guilt. He needs to tell Tharn or he’s going to drive himself insane, which brings us to his third problem.
How is Tharn going to take all of this?

“'It got too hot and the medicine isn't doing anything. I just wanted you here, so I called, but I know you were working on the project. I just wanted you,' Boss starts rambling, still crying and barely coherent.
'I’m here, it’s okay,' Mek whispers under Boss’s loud, relieved sobs."
Boss gets a sinus infection and calls the one person he knows that wouldn't mind taking care of him at 2AM when he has a dream that makes him super upset.

“How have you been?” King asks, just to break the tension a little.
“I’m okay. That’s for you,” Ram mumbles, pointing to the small cactus behind King.
“It’s cute, thank you,” King says.
King thinks about it for a second before reaching out to grab Ram’s hand, running his thumb over the back of it.
“I think there’s some stuff I should tell you.” King whispers.
