    Summary

    David knew it was coming, but it didn’t make it any easier.

     

    He knew how Cabaret ended. He’d seen the movie, and the revival production at Studio 54, not to mention one of the West End revivals. His high school even did a production of Cabaret that he’d been involved with. So, he was intimately familiar with the plot. And anyway, it was set in pre-war Berlin, and anyone with the slightest grasp of 20th century history could guess where it would end up. It was like watching Titanic; you knew the ship was going to sink. It certainly wasn’t a surprise. But it wasn’t enough to know it was happening.
    David watches the ending of Cabaret on opening night, and it's really hard for him to see.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A very VERY necessary gutpunch.
    Because stories are stories, and the ones we tell are as important as the ones we don't...but allude to.

    Summary

    He’s not sure why this year he’s so determined to avoid one of his favorite parts of Christmas, because truly nothing gets him in the spirit quicker. But he supposes he’s maybe still a little hung up after last year...
     
    This year feels a bit precarious… feels like if he puts a toe out of line he’s going to beg to be asked to stay. So this year he’s gonna keep it in his pants.

    Or, David returns to his hometown for Christmas and falls back once again into the arms of the man he keeps leaving behind.

    Summary

    Patrick's instinct is to leave, but he’s just noticed something about this guy. “I know you …” he says slowly, uncertainly.
    It’s hardly flattering, but the other guy chuckles. It’s a nice sound, Patrick thinks, cautiously.

    “Yeah,” says the guy, his grin sliding into a smirk. “I think you, uh, tried to flirt with me once.”

    And now Patrick recognises him. A million years ago, at a party he hadn’t thought twice about, before everything really took off, this guy stood in a kitchen, not unlike this one, wearing a shirt blazoned with a mouth and bloody fangs, teasing Patrick.

    OR
    Patrick Brewer has a LOT of baggage. He's absolutely not ready for a relationship.

    OR
    In which the author tries not to spoil anything, and in doing so fails completely at the summary.
