Re: Jamie and Scorpius
"Do, did, will again?" Jamie added with a wry smirk. It wasn't needed right now. But, that was why he'd pushed to have his dad put him in position to manage communications. If that facade was needed again to protect his family and the people here, Jamie would do it without question. "Not that the people who know me would have any idea about public faces and private faces?" was his own teasing return.
"I'm well aware of the difference. But, there are also plenty of stories about people who subconsciously repress their attraction to men, who convince themselves they're attracted to women and are perfectly capable of performing in the bedroom regardless. It's not like I've ever spent an inordinate amount of time wondering if I was really attracted to whatever woman was the one night stand of the moment." He'd had one actual relationship in his life and he'd never once thought of it as anything more than 'comfortable'. How would he know the difference? "I don't think it's unreasonable, when faced with that kind of realization about oneself, to wonder about what came before."
Sighing, Jamie pulled his chair closer so he could lean on the edge of the bed, far enough within Scorpius' 'personal space' it could serve for the friendly arm Jamie couldn't put around his shoulders. "Hate to break it to you, but I can't decide for you. Sorry." And it had to be maddening to have to make that kind of decision in such a short time. "Have you asked if you'd have to pick? Maybe there's something more...in between? Something that would let you feel like both? I don't know if that even makes sense," he added with a confused frown.
