    Summary

    Bernie had settled into his 'simple' life as a single father of two, even if he now knew he was destined for much more.

    Elton had gone on to become a superstar, but no amount of fame could heal the hole in his heart left by Bernie's decision to leave him.

    What happens when their paths cross yet again?

    Summary

    Bernie Taupin couldn’t remember the last time anything in his life went according to plan. It irritated him to no end that just when things appeared to settle down, when his life could finally begin to be considered normal, a wrench never fucking failed to be thrown in the mix...

    And of course that wrench usually went by the name of Elton John.

    Summary

    “Would it matter if I was, Bernie?”

    The question was forceful, hard. A dare. A showing of bravado to mask the quickened breathing, the whites showing around the edges of Elton’s eyes. Even as young as he was then, Bernie had known there was only one right answer to that question. Only one answer that wouldn’t lose him the man who had rapidly become the most important person in his life. Only one answer that would let things continue on as they had been, with them writing their songs in their tiny little apartment on Reg’s cantankerous old keyboard, reaching for some long-distant dream they both half-feared would never come. Only one answer that mattered… the truth.

    “No. Not to me.”

    Summary

    Things were grand. Brilliant even. Everything had gone their way. They were top of the pops. They had certified platnum, silver, AND gold records. They could not walk down the street without hearing at least ONE grey haired ol’ tramp singing their tunes.

    So why wasn't Elton finally happy??

    Summary

    Not quite following the timeline and plot of Rocketman, Elton tells a story (from his rehab centre) that is more centred around his relationship with John Reid and the effort it took to get himself the help he needed.

    “Every bad path starts with one terribly bad decision. My bad path started with one bad decision named John Reid which started a chain reaction of bad decisions I like to call “drugs fuck you up”.”
