    Summary

    “What they said? They’re wrong. You’re perfect, okay? Every bit of you. Don’t think otherwise,” Steve says, and her hands are trembling. “You’re badass, you’re awesome, and you happen to be bisexual.”

    Why the FUCK were all of his friends also suddenly bisexual?

    “It’s not weird to you?” Max confirms, searching his face hopefully.

    Steve grins. “No way, you shit. Besides, I’m-”

    ~~

    Or, all the kids (and then some) are coming out to Steve, and he can't get a word in edgewise. The myth is true: Gays travel in packs.

    He knew he couldn’t have both.

    ---------

    Alex realises his biggest fears, sees them come true before his eyes, and finds love in unexpected but all too welcome places.

    Summary

    Klaus folded his arms across his chest. “Nuh-uh. No way. Sorry, brother dearest, but the only way you’re locking her in there is if you lock me in too.”

    “Oh my God,” Ben said from behind him, his tone a mixture of disbelief and admiration. “You’re an idiot.”

    Klaus ignored Ben, lifting his jaw obstinately and squaring his shoulders. He fixed Luther with his most intimidating stare. “Your choice, brother mine.”

    Luther sighed, annoyance evident in his eyes. “Whatever you want, Klaus.”

    His brother stepped back, out of the room – Vanya’s cell (Klaus’ prison), beginning to close the door.

    “I’ll check on you later, Klaus.”

    (“Three more hours, Number Four.”)

    The door shut soundlessly, and Klaus watched, his heartrate accelerating, as Luther spun the wheel of the lock before turning and walking away.

    He was trapped.

    -------------

    Klaus refuses to let Luther leave Vanya to wake up alone in a cage. Between the panic attacks and the withdrawal, he doesn't quite manage to play the role of the comforting older brother. Somehow it works out anyway.

    Summary

    Luke runs his mouth off without thinking and Reggie's feelings get hurt. Julie won't stand for it.

    “I didn’t know you surfed,” she says conversationally, taking off her sandals and setting them down beside her. It’s his clue that this is going to be a long talk. “You never struck me as a beach bum.”
