    Summary

    “Baby,” Richie’s voice unstitched with laughter. And Eddie’s skin burning up, even then, in the palms and fingertips. Hands clasped on the steering wheel, he takes a sharp turn.

    Richie’s shoulder digs into his. G-force. And little space.

    Eddie breathes in. His chest hurts like the nonexistent airbag is already pushing into it.

    Like he’s already crashed.

    [Or, American screenwriter Richie comes to shoot a movie in late Soviet era Poland and meets Eddie K., sound technician, hobbyist car mechanic.]

    Summary

    Eddie, for obvious reasons, is a clementine. This is the one he’s thought most about—tiny, adorable, obviously. Kind of hard and annoying to open when you first give it a try, but easier each time you do it. Some people (some! people!) might think it’s gross and weird, but Richie likes the yellow-tinged fingers that come with the peeling. A fruit that leaves a mark. He also likes the stringy bits—again! Maybe a bit weird, maybe a bit gross, maybe a bit off-putting, and most definitely not everyone’s thing, but. A part of the whole that Richie has found himself terminally obsessed with. It’s fine, he just really likes clementines right now. He might even say that he loves them.

    (In which Richie has a month long breakdown over fruit; fruit is just a dumb, thinly veiled metaphor for Eddie; and everyone else thinks they’re already a thing.)

    Summary

    Longtime roommates Richie and Eddie are down on their luck, facing eviction right before the holidays.
    To save their apartment, Richie devises the brilliant plan to produce a homemade porn flick and rake in the cash... but he fails to consider how asking his unrequited crush to star might complicate their relationship.

    AKA two trashy 30-somethings think it's a good idea to try to solve their problems by making a goofy porno, get their friends to help them, and catch feelings along the way.

    Summary

    Eddie could see the layers and layers of tape he’d wrapped around the leg of Richie’s glasses over a month ago, shaped like a little cocoon. He reached out and touched it with the tip of his finger.

    “These don’t even sit straight anymore,” he said. “Why are you still wearing them?”

    Richie didn’t blink from behind the lenses until Eddie took his hand back.

    “I don’t know. My life is kind of a mess right now. They feel appropriate.”

    “Your life isn’t a mess, Rich.”

    “It really, really is.” Richie straightened, started talking with his hands when he said, “Hey, shouldn’t you be shouting? I feel like this would be easier if you were shouting.”

    “You said you’d take this seriously,” Eddie said.
