    Summary

    Luke meets Reggie in a toilet stall at an award show when he's just trying to hide from everyone. He's the frontman of famous pop punk band Sunset Curve, and Reggie is an international country star. Something shifts in his life when he asks Reggie to sneak out of the award show together to attend an underground punk rock gig instead. Luke doesn't believe in love at first sight, but Reggie sure as hell makes him question everything he's ever believed in before.

    Summary

    Reggie laughs first, then Alex, and then they’re both laughing so hard at nothing that they’re crying, and by the time Luke walks in with his bedding, they’re crying on his unmade bed at nothing.

    “You guys are so weird,” Luke says, but that only makes them laugh harder, and Alex wishes he could freeze this moment and have it forever.
    Life doesn’t work like that, though, so he knows he won’t.

    or, falling in love with your best friend is not as fun or easy as the movies make it seem. Alex learns this the hard way.

    Summary

    If the band was full of ghosts, it all added up. It was unbelievable, really, but it somehow fit so much better than any realistic explanation could.

    Or: Ray knows the boys are ghosts and gets them each a Christmas present to welcome them to the family. After all, being a Molina has never been a matter of blood.

    Summary

    Alex shrugs off Luke’s hand. ”Are we sure he’d fit though? I mean, we can be a bit…”

    ”A bit what?”

    Alex isn’t sure what to respond. Co-dependent was the word his mom used, right after his dad asked if he was certain Luke and Reggie were the best choice of company for him. Along with phrases like ”unhealthy attachment” and ”better use of your time, darling”. All said with only the best intentions, of course.

    ”I think we’re a bit of an acquired taste,” Reggie says helpfully, and Alex nods.

     

    Alex worries, Luke means well, and Reggie just wants to belong.
