    Summary

    Dan hesitates in the doorway, not wanting to interrupt the intimate moment. He wishes his hands weren't full so he could snap a quick photo of the scene; Phil bending down to rest his head on top of Kath's, her hand gently rubbing between his shoulder blades, Nigel on their other side leaning into Phil, whose arm is slung across his shoulder.

    It's been 16 months since Dan last saw them in this exact formation as they wandered round the Saatchi Gallery excitedly pointing out the ancient Egyptian artifacts to one another - but looking at them like this now, settled, comfortable, familiar as ever in each other's presence and it could've just as easily been last week.

    Kath and Nigel finally visit Dan and Phil in their new home.

    It's not about being unmade; it's about remaking, one aching step at a time.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Fucking FUCKING hell this is probably the best fic you’ll ever read, it’ll take 2-3 hours tho so only read it if you have enough time. It’s about relearning oneself, relearning how to love, emotional, intense, incredible writing, everything. If you have time, read it.
