    Summary

    When Sasha kisses Jamie, it's about control. When Cameron kisses Jamie, it's about searching for something. But Aff is different. They're just kissing Jamie. That's all. That's enough. That's more than enough.

    Jamie reflects on Aff and how the idea of Aff connects to their idea of self...and how Aff kind of turns that upside down by being an adorable, lovable cinnamon roll.

    Summary

    rise up, bright sun; your children call to you
    rise up, bright sun; our futures fall to you
    forgive us the days forgotten to fear
    we know it too well this time of the year
    rise up, bright sun
    -- Leslie Fish, "Rise Up, Bright Sun"

    Summary

    skipping stones, we know the price now
    any sin will do
    how much further, if you can spin?
    how much further, if you are smooth?
    - Indigo Girls, "Kid Fears"
     

    She works it out, gradually, painfully. You have to know what they want you to say, but that’s not enough; you have to mean it.
