Short Snippet While You Wait...  
It's taking forever, I know. 9 months is a really long time. Thankfully I've made some progress this week and am willing to share a small snippet. One more small section for Sloane, editing Drake's existing to have less teen angst (-.-), and then I'll round it out with his last. Not going to lie, it might be difficult to stretch his out because her is massive.

It was dark. Dust had settled on the bookshelf and television set, the dirty dishes left in the sink covered in sporadic patterns of fuzz. Behind the screen the bed was made and looked much the norm, Sloane's make-up mirror and random items still scattered across the beat up desk as though she would return to use them at any time. Her posters remained on the adjacent walls, and upon inspection, the wardrobe contained a small collection of her ensemble. He resisted the urge to touch them.

Dave swallowed and dropped his bag on the floor, pushing open the curtains of the patio door. He stood silently in the sunlight staring at the back yard but seeing none of it. He felt no warmth, no refreshment coming through the open door; the apartment was as cold and stagnant as when he arrived. It was no longer home.

As though they had been waiting for this moment, his emotions exploded.

He remembered her in the shower with bruises. He remembered rolling around on the bed, legs entwined beneath the tangle of sheets. Three words chimed again and again; empty words, the promises he had longed to hear. Heaviest were the memories of that night. Flesh on flesh emblazoned with pink of delicate flower; she clung to Jesse with a weak smile on her lips. And she cried. Not for him, not because she was losing something with real potential. No, she cried for Jesse.

Also, I see two beefy men in Van's future... just FYI, and set building has begun! ^_^

*shifty eyes* shhhh you didn't see me. If my mate knew I was still awake an online, I'd be man enough for Van.

And totally didn't see the gay tab coming up for Van, granted he did love the aliens.
