Humans are small and adorable and Shane loves them.
Chicago, where the skyline so closely resembles what Shane had to leave behind.
It makes his hearts ache – so he leaves the city for another, and finds himself in LA.
When they first meet – Ryan looks up and up and up at Shane before squinting his eyes and asking, “How are you so freakishly tall?”
Shane says, “I’m actually quite small for my species.”
“Oh,” Ryan asks, quirking an eyebrow, “and what species is that? Sasquatch?”
Shane holds out his hand for Ryan to shake, says, “Close enough. My name’s Shane.”
