    Summary

    It's been a year since they moved into the Brownstone in New York. Alex is in full swing of law school, Henry is working hands on with the organization and life couldn't be any better living together. That is until some unexpected news brings on challenges for the freshly courting couple. Catherine may be preparing sooner than later for the throne, as hard to swallow news regarding the Queen goes viral, meanwhile, on a brighter note- Phillip and Martha prepare to share some exciting news of their own only for it to turn sour.
    While trying to make both Alex and Henry’s situation manageable, some unwelcome guests arrive to make it a bit more difficult.
    Phillip learns truths he wish he never had...

    While all else is taking place, Zahra and Shaan prepare to be married. We see what June, Nora and Beatrice are up to while trying to keep everyone grounded as usual. It's chaotic, unnerving and also wildly exciting.

    Summary

    Alex Claremont-Diaz is a star on the rise.

    A wildcard up-and-coming new actor who finds himself thrust into the Hollywood limelight when he’s nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his small-budget indie movie. It’s his more than he could have imagined in his wildest dreams. That is, until he discovers that also in his category is his mortal enemy: Henry Fox – generically attractive, completely boring and part of an acting dynasty that stretches back generations. In short, everything Alex hates about Hollywood.

    So when a comment Alex makes about Henry in an interview goes viral, and the two find themselves thrust together through awards season, Alex can’t help but think his dream has become his worst nightmare.

    Except, maybe – just maybe – Henry isn’t quite what he seems.

    Summary

    So while we all knew that the 2020 written in the book would be glorious fiction, we didn’t realize that reality would throw us something to take 2020 even further away from the book’s events. This story is where I attempt to merge our 2020 reality and the fiction of RWRB, using research (a LOT of research) to try to figure out what the trajectory of reality might have been. The story starts picking up the timeline after their late-February trip to Paris. After that, it's strictly AU, but I try to keep a lot of the intents of the events in the book (for instance, Alex's trip to confront Henry in Britain after the lake) while still making them fit the narrative I've created.

    Title is from one of the best ever Bowie songs, and the lyrics are so fucking beautiful and perfect for these two.

    Summary

    He knows him. He knows that the quirk at the corner of his mouth means he’s anxious, and he knows how he looks when he’s falling apart at the seams, and he knows what it means when Henry goes straight for the alcohol at public events. He knows him intimately, painfully so, and try as he might, he cannot forget. And so instead, Alex does what he does best, and makes a mess of everything.

    Or, Henry does text back after the lake house, and it's enough to shut Alex down. A break-up and make-up fic, if you will.

    Summary

    It rings twice and Angel picks up with an unimpressed, “What? I already have my retainer in.”
     
    “Angel. Love of my life and pain in my ass. Listen. You will never believe who came in to work today.” Her feet are kicking in the air like a ditzy rom-com protagonist, and for a fleeting moment, she longs for the days of corded telephones so she could twirl the coil and complete the picture.

    AKA Alex bumps into an old classmate and she's eager to tell the tale.

    ____
    I have all these writing prompts to use, and this one specifically stuck out to me for this book. I could see it being something:

    Summary

    “Alexander Claremont-Diaz, would you like to tell me why you are still in the car when you have a speech to make in five minutes?” Henry chided down the line, and Alex could tell that one arm was folded across his chest.
     
    “I’m so sorry sweetheart, breakfast with Nora ran over, the line for coffee took fucking forever, and I left the cue cards I’d written at home. Then Cash took a wrong turn and like, doubled our travel time.” He groaned, running a hand over his face. “I’ll only be a few minutes late, I promise.”

    Alex was supposed to be the first person on that stage.

    Summary

    Alex Claremont-Diaz is a Cabin Leader at his Parent's co-owned sleep away summer camp. He could have spent his summer partaking in an internship through college, but he knows how much his parents need him during the season. Things get a bit more exciting for him when Ellen hires a new staff member and her kids to work at the camp due to their family owned camp having been shut down the summer before. Alex finds love in a very unexpected place, and he's certainly not complaining- not with how lonely his summers have been leading up to this one- that's for sure.

    Summary

    Alex needs a date to his sisters wedding to make his ex-boyfriend jealous and it's proving more difficult than he thought to find someone. Liam suggests he start using a new Speed Dating app to help him find someone quickly, but luck isn't on his side. He's a true disaster in the making. He meets a very snarky stranger named Henry at the bar, who offers up his services. Alex doesn't know what to make of him, but he thinks it's worth a shot...they're only going to be fake dating for the event anyway, what's the worst that could happen?

    ——————
    “Have you tried that Speed Date and Chill thing?”

    Alex cocked his head, “What is this, 1991?” He furrowed his brow at him.

    “No, no…it’s an app! You set up a series of speed dates in a night, and if you like the guy or girl- whatever you want, then you make yourself unavailable the rest of the night and continue the date with them. So, it’s basically Uber for dating. Anyone can show up, you just set your location to open and people get notifications if they are in the area, they choose the date and that’s it.”

    “That sounds like a great way to get kidnapped.” Alex deadpans.

    Summary

    It isn’t until Alex is 24 and completing his first year of law school that he realizes Zahra has never hugged him. Sure, she’s shaken his hand, protected him from paparazzi, and even looked at him with something that resembled fondness, but never an actual hug. He wonders if she ever hugs Shaan, or if she just shakes his hand professionally. She seems the type to do that.

    Summary

    Alex and Henry are contestants on the next season of Netflix’s reality show called The Circle, a social media-style competition game in which everything is anonymous. The players all communicate with each other via text and have to rely on the pictures and other information on their profile to make connections with one another.

    On a show where it’s possible for some people to not be who they say they are, it can be difficult to know what’s real and what’s not. They have to remind themselves that it’s just a game. Right?

    Summary

    “I see I may have missed some important information pertaining to this evening,” Henry says slowly, staring at the lipstick in his boyfriend’s hand with curiosity. It’s a fairly dark colour, not quite red or purple but somewhere in-between, and the idea of it on Alex’s mouth is… intriguing.

    Although Henry’s pretty certain he’d be into Alex wearing - or not wearing - anything at this stage. Just as long as it’s Alex.
