    Summary

    Simon Blackquill—on account of being a) considered quite scary and b) in jail for the past few years—has never actually planned a first date. He's not about to fall into the tired clichés of going to a restaurant or the cinema, but he does want an excuse to put everything he has on display so that Nahyuta has a fair chance to run away if he realises that dating an ex-convict isn't for him.

    So, in the interest of total transparency, he plans a first date to a couples therapist.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of Kristoph's second arrest and the disbanding of the Gavinners, Klavier has never felt more alone. Every day, he's hounded by the press, fending off question after question about how complicit he was in Kristoph's schemes—but he's never been very good at defending himself, and there's only so much he can ignore before he breaks.

    Which is why, when Apollo steps in and takes a punch for him, Klavier can't comprehend the fact that there's anyone left in the world who would fight for him.

    Summary

    When Apollo is volunteered by Phoenix to be the model for a police sketch workshop, he doesn’t exactly enjoy having his appearance picked apart by his coworkers. Not that he’s self conscious, it’s just that being on the other end of perception is a rather uncomfortable feeling.

    And hearing Klavier Gavin describe him like… that certainly doesn’t help with the embarrassment.
