    Summary

    Patrick smiled faintly. It wasn’t clear if that was due to a lack of strong emotion or a lack of ability due to the broken bones in his face.

    “It’s not broken, David,” he offered. He sounded a little like he was trying to soothe a spooked horse which, while a pleasingly romantic mental image, was not so pleasing when David was the metaphorical horse.

    Summary

    He realises with a jolt that Mickey didn’t think he’d come.

    “Mick,” he says softly. He taps his fingers on the glass. “Mickey.”

    “Fucking what?” Mickey scowls, but his fingers stretch closer.

    “Stop waiting for me to leave,” he replies quickly.

    (Ian and Mickey become a stable couple who communicate.)

    Summary

    Excerpt from “Hale Pulls the Plug on the Future of Rock,” Rolling Stone, Issue 1203 – Oct. 2014
    “Fans and music industry vets alike are left reeling in the wake of bassist Derek Hale’s sudden departure from Smokes for Harris. At a time when the foursome from Beacon Hills, California seems to be on the cusp of rock superstardom after just one double platinum record, Smokes has everything to lose.”

    Excerpt from “Smokes for Harris: Gladiator,” SPIN.com – Feb. 2015
    “Smokes for Harris gives in a little to the pop punk of yesteryear in their sophomore effort, but rather than pandering to fans of a lost era they elevate the genre in a way that hasn’t been seen in quite some time. Frontman Stiles Stilinski works double duty as singer and primary songwriter and proves that he can handle the task even without former bassist Derek Hale."

    Summary

    Five Keys to Forming A Successful Business Partnership

    1. Expectations: Start off with a clear understanding of what each of you contributes to, and needs from, the partnership.
    2. Shared Vision: Decide on a mission statement. Both of you must be on the same page with regards to direction and achievable goals.
    3. Communication: Be sure to check in regularly as the partnership grows over time and needs or expectations may change.
    4. Future Projections: Envision your long-term success and plan accordingly.
    5. Trust & Support: A partnership should feel equal. Identify and utilize the strengths of each partner, and support the partnership's limitations. You must be able to rely on each other.

    Starting something new, something you've never done before, can be daunting. It helps to find the right partner.

    An exploration of their relationship from beginning to... well, not end. Spoilers through the end of season 5. (Nothing from s6.)
