What Happens Next [Feb. 21st, 2018|08:11 pm]


Umm. I'm just going to assume the old rules about how to post drabbles no longer apply. Plus, I just wrote my first self-serving fanfic in like 10 years. And I still got it when it comes to drabbling. Both are 100 words exactly! And no one is here anymore to read it anyway. I've been depressed a bit lately. The state of the world, at least in the US, is fucking depressing. And I've been reading a lot fanfic again. So this was bound to happen..

What Happens Next - Part 1

When the Sandy Hook school shooting happens Gus is 12, JR is 8. Melanie and Lindsay kiss their kids and hug them a little tighter. They don't say it out loud, but over the years they've often been glad they moved to Canada. This is one of those times.

In 2015 when marriage in the US is finally legal, they think about moving back. They love life in Canada. Gus is 15, moving at that age is tough. But they also love their Pittsburg family, and miss them dearly. They decide to wait a bit and see what happens next.

What Happens Next - Part 2

What happens next changes everything and nothing.

49 people die in a gay nightclub. Trump becomes President. And 17 high schoolers and their teachers are murdered by one kid with a gun.

Gus is a senior in high school. JR will be there next year. Melanie and Lindsay kiss their kids and hug them a little too tight. And they thank god every day that they live somewhere where they can send their kids to the movies, or the mall, or even just to school and be reasonably assured they will come back home at the end of the day.
