    Summary

    “Gran sat me down the day I finished my A levels and made it abundantly clear I was not to let anyone know about any deviant desires I might be beginning to harbor that might reflect poorly upon the crown, and there were appropriate channels to maintain appearances if necessary.”

    Shaan approaches Henry with a deal from the Queen: agree to an arranged marriage with a woman to flaunt in public, and he can enjoy the services of a male escort in private. Alex comes storming into Henry’s life with sparkling brown eyes, a mischievous smirk, and a challenge, and Henry struggles to maintain control of his emotions as boundaries begin to blur.

    Alex doesn’t actually care about him; it’s just a job. Right?

    Summary

    ["June stopped by at lunch; she showed me a delightful channel called Hallmark, which repeats the same story every hour after they swap one round of white, straight, small-town conventionally beautiful actors for another. It was entertaining.”

    “June and I used to play a drinking game with those. Take a shot every time someone goes ice skating, sledding, or leaves the big city for their tiny hometown.”

    “Good lord, you must’ve been sloshed in the first ten minutes.”]

    ***

    On December 4, 2021, an attempt is made on President Ellen Claremont's life.

    Alex gets shot instead.

    Summary

    “Can I kiss you?” Zelda asks, hem twisting under her fingers.

    Gorgug wonders if he’ll ever be able to breath again. “Yeah.”

    and

    Ragh’s still laughing by the time he manages to catch Gorgug staring at him, and, through his smile, says, “Dude, can I kiss you right now?”

    “Oh, um, yeah, yes.”

     

    Gorgug gets his kisses in.

    Summary

    “Would you go to prom with me?”

     

    “What? Yes. Absolutely,” Gorgug says, immediately, not even thinking about it, not even knowing when prom is or if he’ll be on tour by then or anything. Ragh’s smiling at him, and Ragh’s asking him to go to his senior prom, and Gorgug can’t say no to that.

    Gorgug and Ragh prom night take two, minus the dragons and homophobic assholes, plus a whole lot of pining.
