"He had wanted to be somewhere quiet, somewhere real – a place that looked unassuming and familiar enough, a place that would stop him from feeling the constant need to scarper, a place where the present was both close and far away enough..
And this was exactly that kind of place.
“I like it here,” Aaron said, “it’s so quiet.”
Robert gave him a kiss on the cheek, the warmth in his touch spreading into Aaron's blood.
More than anything else in his life, Robert was his present now - and though that was a fact that was still searching its final shape inside his heart, it was there all the same; happening, becoming, settling in.
“I like it here too,” Robert said as Aaron pressed his face against Robert’s chest, breathing him in, breathing out the chill in his bones."
KBuck requested for a fluffy boyfriend era fix-it scene where Robron have managed to take that trip after their reunion, but having cancelled the Barcelona tickets already they've had to improvise the destination. Here it is :)

Surrogacy; but not that sort: Robert’s injured and now he’s struggling to have fullfilling sex with his wife Chrissie. She encourages him to try a psychologist who uses sex surrogates as therapy. Robert asks Chrissie if she’s sure about the plan but she tells him it will be worth it. What neither of them expect is the surrogate to be a man.
Twenty years ago, the world ended as a plague swept through and killed off ninety-nine percent of the population. Today, Robert and Aaron try to figure out how to be together in a changed landscape, one that still has some beauty left to give. But there's darkness on the horizon, a growing threat in the shadows, and it will take everything they have just to survive it. But is survival enough? (Station Eleven AU)
Aaron is an actor and Robert lives in the village. Aaron get's majorly detoured on his way to London. Bad at summaries.

"The original plan was to go on the run. Aaron and I decided to do one into wine country in France but as often in life, a chateau by a river, state of the art motorcycles and sipping Côtes du Rhône all day long are not the things you end up having, it’s more likely to have handcuffs snapped onto your wrists whilst your husband is screaming at you from across the road because you turned yourself in and didn’t tell him in advance.
"We were supposed to do this together!" is what I heard him shout before I was shoved into the police car.
Truth is, I was never gonna let him do that.
He knows why, but he pretends that he doesn’t because he wanted to abandon his life for me; because he loves me against his better judgement.
He’s headstrong like that.
Filling out those divorce papers was the worst few minutes of my life. I didn’t recognise my own handwriting; it was all scrawled and messy, just barely legible.
It looked like Aaron’s handwriting.
Maybe I just wanted to see a piece of him appear in front of me.
I’m not doing great with the letting him go part, am I?"
Robert kept a diary in prison. This is what he wrote.
AKA Robert's POV to "I promise you the best life".
