  1. Summary

    In-between Time: A bunch of additional Scenes from the book and movie that I would love to see, so I write them. Most of the stories are about Theo’s downtime. What happens on a lazy Sunday. What happens in the morning. A full scene dedicated to walking to the bus stop. Things of that nature. Mainly set during the Vegas era, but will have moments of the Barbours, and Theo’s mother. I am no Donna Tartt, but I want to keep this book alive, and besides, many scenes peeked my imagination.

    confusing and fucked-up nights, grappling around half-dressed, weak light from the bathroom and everything haloed and unstable.

    Summary

    Of all the people in this world, Boris cares the most. His touches, his words, all of his effort. He cares about Theo. But beyond that, beyond caring, there lies the unspoken territory of something else. Something doors are opened to when an arm reaches out and pulls him close in the middle of the night, or when Theo feels himself go warm everywhere, from his skin to his bones; when he falls into that territory but doesn’t acknowledge its existence.

    They both know it’s there.

    They ignore it, though; they go on with how they are, they don’t speak of it.

    Summary

    If Theo and Boris hadn’t been in Vegas together at the exact same moment, they would both be dead today. Boris knows it like he knows his own name. He'd be rotting in a ditch somewhere in Poland or Ukraine, and Theo- he'd be long gone, a smear on the Nevada pavement. But while the painting had kept Boris alive after their separation- what had kept Theo afloat? With no goldfinch to keep him tethered to the earth, and no Boris to dig him up if he got buried too deep?

    If he were to scour the globe looking for him now, what would he find?

    or

    Boris and Theo think of each other for ten years. They don't always realize it.

    Summary

    It's a steady downfall. A long time ago, things had been different. It's strange, how family can be nothing more than a few people of the same blood, living under the same roof and sharing the food.

    The Wheelers had not been "fine" in a long time.
