Who: Sasha Stanford and Justin Campbell
What: I'm loving angels instead...
Where: Boston, MA
When: After this

Justin did exactly what he didn’t want to do on the drive to Boston… fell asleep. He only realised when he was being woken gently by Sasha giving his hand a soft squeeze and stroking his cheek. He had been planning on talking to Sasha about Will on the drive but here he was, waking up groggy and disoriented with creased up the side of his face from the sweater Sasha must have wedged between his head and the window so he didn’t get a sore neck. “Shit…” he mumbled, looking around with a stretch and a yawn, peering out the window and seeing they were parked at the cemetery. “I thought we were going to see her folks first? Is there a bathroom here?”

“I don’t know, baby. You might need to find a tree,” Sasha told him, smirking a little. Justin had crashed about fifteen minutes out of New York after they made plans to hit a McDonalds drive-thru to get something to eat. He wasn’t really surprised when he noticed Justin go quiet and his eyes were drooping. Although Justin did sleep the night before, it wasn’t a settled sleep. Sometimes, his brain just didn’t cooperate with switching off and that meant even if he did sleep, he didn’t get rest. You could usually tell when that happened because Justin woke up and didn’t speak to anyone. You might get a grunt and he might clear the brain fog a bit with a shower, but he didn’t usually perk up until he had breakfast and tea. He was always content with letting Justin sleep, as Justin was with him when his head was mucking up on him. This time, it gave him some time alone with his thoughts, trying to process what he was feeling going to Boston for this visit. “I just felt like I needed to come here first. I don’t know why.”

Justin rested his hand on Sasha’s thigh and leaned in to give him a kiss... )

Who: Will and Luke Jackson
What: Brotherly Bonding
Where: NYC
When: After this

Will was sitting on the living room floor in the middle of what looked like a baby store exploded around him. Countless toys - nothing isolated to gendered male toys either - some disposable nappies, baby wipes, a change mat, an open jar of baby food that was barely touch with a baby spoon sitting in it, five soiled bibs, one baby sock (fuck knows where the other went) and a large plush koala with a red t-shirt with Milo’s name embroidered on it that was bigger than Milo himself. Will decided he was going to nail this awesome uncle thing, but that didn’t mean he perfected the art just yet.

Milo was pulling himself up on furniture now and had grown so much since the last time Will saw him. He was still tiny for his age, and coming from a mother who had been addicted to drugs when she was pregnant with him did that. That didn’t make him less the best nephew in the entire world. On the contrary, he was adorable. Blonde hair, big blue eyes, long eyelashes, drooly smile, and giggles that Will thought was one of the best sounds in the world. “C’mon, buddy. You can do it. Look, just three or four steps and you’ll be here. I can catch you.” Will was trying to coax his nephew away from where he was holding himself up on the coffee table, holding his hands out to him. He got all of one and a bit steps before he fell on his butt again. “Ohhh! So close. Good job.”

Luke arrived home from work, dragging his feet wearily and dumped his bag on one of the armchairs... )

ooc : moar retconning ahoy!

Justin’s training schedule was once again batshit crazy. Not just for him to recondition after faceplanting the stage and nearly dropping dead in front of a sell-out audience, but because he was poised to resume with a new Ariel and Rusty. It was a watch-this-space moment. Auditions for Rusty had happened the day before and Caden was in talks with his team about who would get callbacks. The private auditions for Ariel were the next day, and Justin still wasn’t convinced Cassidy would go through with it. He hoped she did. Not because he wanted her to get the part (even if that would be incredible), but because he knew it would help her emotionally when she had been struggling in her new skin, floundering in her new relationship, and basically not knowing what way was up.

For now, Justin was training with the Ariel understudy who had been holding the role. Rumour had it she was auditioning too, but Justin hoped she didn’t get it. He didn’t like how she hesitated in his lifts every single time they trained and their kisses on stage felt like they had the passion of a dead fish. If you were an actor, you should be able to fucking act. He was as gay as any gay person could be, and he still managed it with a straight chick over and over for months. Or maybe he was just out of sorts with the notion of new cast members joining again. It was never easy. He knew they wouldn’t all be as awesome as Merlin. It scared him, and it took a lot of focus and concentration to stop himself assuming they were all rapists. Not really a welcome anyone deserved, even if they kissed like dead fish.

That morning, his mind was elsewhere... )

Who: Gen Hart and Mark Campbell
What: Alone Time
Where: The Hamptons, NY
When: Friday

This time around, it was obvious to both Mark and Gen that making time for each other was vital. They had gifted Justin and Sasha with a couple of nights at The Plaza so they could get away and just have private time alone, but in doing that, they realised they needed to do the same thing. It was a pretty enlightening thing to realise you needed to take a leaf out of your teenage son’s book. They both constantly observed Justin and Sasha, if only because they needed to make sure Justin was on par with okay. He had his good and bad days, of course. But not all bad days meant disaster. All it meant was he was off-balance and needed to be watched in case he got worse. But it was obvious the kids had the right recipe for making a relationship work, even through all the challenges.

Gen knew she had to do everything she could to not repeat past mistake. It was feeling surreal to her that it was actually working this time. She was happy, she was more on the ball, she had her fingers back in all the pies she needed them, she was back to momming, and her son was treating her like she was his mom again. Moreover, Sasha had warmed to her significantly, Paris was no longer pissed off with her, Mark had amped up his sexy flirting with her again, her in-laws pulled her back into their pack, and everything at work was running smoothly and on the ball. But in amongst achieving all that, it was just as important as anything else to work on that spark she and Mark were hoping to nurture.

Which is what had them escaping to their beach house in The Hamptons... )
