    Summary

    "Evil takes a human form in Freddie Mercury. Don't be fooled, because he may seem like your typical selfish, back-stabbing, slut-faced ho-bag. But in reality, he is so much more than that. He's the queen bee. The star. Those other two are just his little workers."

    Summary

    WARNING: CONTAINS POTENTIALLY TRIGGERING BODY IMAGE AND WEIGHT ISSUES, EATING DISORDERS AND BEHAVIORS RELATED TO SUCH, VOMITING (BULIMIA), AND MENTIONS OF DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE. Not romanticized, but fair warning. This is not RPF. This is written as an interpretation of the characters from the film "Rocketman," not at all intended to be an account of the lives of these people in real life. Don't like, don't read.

    Drabbles from bits of Elton's life where he struggles with his body image and develops an unhealthy mental association between his weight and his ability to be loved.

    Summary

    John ends up being right about so many things that Elton finds it safe to just believe anything he says. So when he confirms his theory that no one will ever love you, you worthless piece of shit, he's ready to believe him. Why wouldn't he? Everyone he's ever loved has betrayed him. His ma. His dad. Arabella.

    Not Bernie, though. He never would.

    Once he comes to this realization, the rest of his lies are easier to see trough.

    Summary

    Elton’s serious expression melts into one of his trademark, gap-toothed grins immediately. “Look for someone in the crowd?” He squeezes his sleeve a little bit and bats his eyelashes overzealously.

    Bernie relents. He often does. “Who?”

    Elton taps his own nose, smirking in what he probably thinks is a very sly, Bond-ish manner. The sad part for Bernie is that it almost is. “A secret, Bernie, do you take me for a lady who kisses and tells?”

    -

    Or, Elton and Reg are two sides of the same, newly minted coin.

    Summary

    There had been several occasions where Elton so desperately wanted to kiss Bernie. Just grab his beautiful face and smother him in gentle kisses. So many times Elton wanted to confess his feelings—that he really cared for Bernie as more than just a friend. But the pure terror of being rejected, or even worse, destroying their relationship, was enough to keep Elton at bay. He’d suffer through those little, almost romantic moments they’d share, ignoring his feelings just to ensure Bernie stayed. The last thing they needed was for their friendship to be ruined. There goes America. There goes song-writing duo. There goes their whole fucking career before it even starts

    Summary

    Everything is slightly burned and slightly cold, but the tea is hot and strong and Bernie feels a tightness in his chest looking at Reg, tousle-haired and pushing his glasses up his nose before he serves the eggs on the good porcelain plates.

    "I like this," Bernie says, taking a bite of overcooked cold scramble. "A quiet breakfast with you."

    Bernie and Elton on Furlong Road, Islington.
