    Summary

    “Stay and have a drink with me, would you?”
    “A drink...?”
    “...Jesus, he tells you everything, doesn’t he?”
    “Yes, he does - for my sins - whether I want to hear it or not.”

    They can’t bring themselves to look at each other, focusing instead on the sprawled, sleeping figure of Dakin. Even asleep he’s drawing all the energy in the room.

    Summary

    It wasn’t until a week later that Posner cornered Scripps in the philosophy section in Blackwell’s and jabbed him in the chest with A Treatise of Human Nature, and in hindsight Scripps could admire his restraint, because the first words out of his mouth were, “Why does Archie Bernard think you and Dakin are sleeping together?”

    Summary

    Posner turns cold pinked cheeks up to the dark sky. The snow started about five minutes ago to a collective babble of excitement from the gathered shoppers, all hoping it will settle in time for Christmas Day. He lets the flakes settle on his eyelashes and nose, feeling them melt away as soon as they fall.

    Summary

    Posner shuts his eyes and lets himself lose himself in Scripps, lets himself break their kisses to nuzzle his face and slowly press open mouthed kisses down Scripps’ neck while Scripps whines and tilts his head back to give him access, lets himself have this, if not forever, then for at least this wine drunk evening, with their shared stained red lips and Posner’s stained glass heart. Posner moves back to Scripps mouth, tries for one good movie kiss, Brief Encounter and Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard, and every wayward feeling that stains his stupid heart.

    Summary

    You think of God when you’re in the club, hot, sweaty, pulsing masses of students pushing and pulling and shoving as they dance around to the pounding bass line. Yet in the moment, you don’t care about what God thinks because you can see Posner standing on the other edge of the dance floor, waiting for you with dark blue eyes and a mouth like sin.

    Scripps finds himself in a bar under Dakin's instruction and starts to question his intentions. Maybe Christianity can wait when David Posner's waiting across the dance floor...

    "And beware those who only take instructions from God, for they have failed completely to live their own lives" - Charles Bukowski.

    Summary

    Love, friendship and the trials of soul marks are never easy to navigate. At eighteen, a name on your forearm can make the world all the more a painful and confusing place.

    Summary

    Monday was Donald Scripps’ favourite day of the week. Not a common choice, he understood, but his favourite all the same.

    In which Scripps is the piano player for Posner's choir, and it's really fluffy and cute.
