“Did you kiss him?”

You almost jump out of your skin when you hear Rafa speak to you the second you step back into his room. You put a hand to your chest and take several deep breaths to calm yourself down. You push the door shut and lock it. You walk over to Rafa and smile.

Rafa folds his arms across his chest and just looks at you.

You lean in, but Rafa steps back. You sigh heavily.

“I told you I would fix it, didn’t I?”

Rafa studies you carefully.

“Did you kiss him?”

“Do you…”

Rafa steps forward.

“Did. You. Kiss. Him?”

“Why do you ask that?”

“Because I know you. I know what you are like. You would do everything for him to make him feel better. You are too nice. You would love him so he would not be sad.”

You stare at Rafa for a few seconds.

“I kissed his cheek. Does that count? Or would you like to hear how I told him that nothing would ever make me stop loving you?” You step forward and put a hand to Rafa’s cheek. “I love you.” You press a soft kiss to Rafa’s lips. “That hasn’t changed. It will never change.”

“Everything is different now.” Rafa lets his arms drop to his sides and looks at you. “We cannot be like before.”

“Would you really stop being his friend over this?” You shake your head. “I love you. I will always love you.”

“How do I stand with him and know he hates me for being with you?”

“I don’t think he could ever hate you.”

“That…” Rafa shakes his head and looks at you. “I know and everything is different. We cannot go back.”

“We don’t have to go back, but that doesn’t mean everything has to change either. He might love me, but you are the only person for me and it will always be that way.” You take hold of Rafa’s hands. “Always.”

Rafa sighs lightly, but leans in towards you and soon finds himself smiling.

“How can it be the same?”

“Because nothing changed how we felt.” You squeeze Rafa’s hands tightly. “All that matters is that I love you and that you love me. I don’t intend for that ever to change, but if it does, it will be down to us, no one else, not even Novak. If he loves me the way he says, he won’t make me miserable and I think he respects you far too much to ever do anything against you either.” You smile brightly and kiss Rafa again. “Now, let’s forget about him and just focus on each other.”

I'm so pleased you posted an update, and it was well worth waiting for.

I absolutely love this from Rafa's very fist sentence "Did you kiss him?" To his last "How can it be the same?"

Of course Roger has the answers and I do hope Rafa can accept that, after all it's not Rogers fault he is so loveable is it? I'm hoping everything will be alright as long as Roger keeps saying "I love you, I always will". As you can prob tell, it's your deceptively simple dialogue that has caught my interest once again. You really do write these stories extraordinarily well :). Also hugs to Nole... can't be easy.

Hope you are alright and all the other stories are behaving themselves. Just wanted to say I'm reading your Big Bang stories. So much angst but that are soooo readable.

I totally even have the next one written too and I know what the one after that is going to be like as well :)

I legit just started off with that first line- it was right in my head from the start.

I want for Rafa to stop worrying so much (he really doesn't have any reason to because Roger loves him and Novak is still his friend so would never purposefully hurt him), but in my head he keeps going 'But what if something happens?' and I keep having to write that all down again. Oh, thank you so much! I'm totally loving writing these too- it's something a bit different to look into. I think Novak's going to be okay in the end (potentially- I don't know for sure because he's beign very quiet in my head right now)

Well, I'm working my way through plenty of stories (even started on another epic) and they're generally behaving. That is, they're letting me write them, but they seem to be growing by the day so it'll probably take me forever to finish any of them :S Oh, I do hope you enjoy reading those stories :)

Well TAHT is good news.

It is an excellent starting line. From my very ltd experience at fic writing, I find that if I can get that first line down, the rest of the fic is so much easier. I guess cos it sets the scene and helps me to focus.

Of course Roger loves him and deep down he knows Nole wouldn't do any thing to hurt either of them. But is a tight little trio, where small things can easily tip the equilibrium...hence Rafa worries. Bless him and his insecurities though, he keeps the angst going for you. He really doesn't need to, anyone who sees them together would know they are solid.

Another epic? What are you like (Or should that be all your muses) But if you're (they're) happy that is all that matters :)

I'm very much enjoying them.... Even though Matti is sad and Jakob has been a twit!

And then I just need another ocuple to complete the set

Usually I find openings difficult, but when that clicks into place, it does make things a lot easier.

Well, even though he hasn't appeared (yet), there's Andy involved in all of this too so it's more a foursome than a trio so even more complicated ;) I think it's because they got used to dealing with things the way they were before and now with this big revelation they're not sure how to deal.
I'm pretty sure everyone but Rafa sees how solid they are. I don't know why he's worrying so much- he never usually does

Except they're not happy- everyone is going to eventually end up really fucking miserable in this and I don't know how to fix it. This idea has been floating about for a bit, though, so it's nice to finally get to a place where it wants to behave and finally form into actual fic

In the long run, though, they do end up happy together (when I finally get round to writing more for that 'verse, that is)

You'll get there. I don't know how you write, but I imagine these are faster to complete than you epics. Once you have the time to concentrate on them of course.

Oh my, I wondered where Andy had got to! Hope he's not going to cause trouble, or is he going to rescue poor depressed and angry Novak so that we end with two happy couples. Nahh can't be that simple can it :) Novaks revelation is huge, and most IRL couples would probably stop seeing the third person, the 'injured' party would more or less insist on it I think. But that is not an option for your guys as they see each other a lot in the course of their business, plus they are sort of awesome and would not want Novak to be left out when he is hurting so much.

Oh no, not happy muses is ... Not happy. But you know not everyone has to end up happy. Doesn't happen IRL, doesn't need to happen in fic? Perhaps you don't need to fix it, write iit as it comes, no one does angst better :)

Having said all that, I am mightily pleased to hear Matti and Jakob get happy. I hope Jakob chucks that Seb out.. I think he is up to no good with poor delicate, fragile M. Btw, have you seen the new Matti video for Saxo? I kid you not it looks like someone has stolen Fabians films and edited the soft bits together! It is lovely to watch :) Links on my last post, but you can totally ignore my rumblings about it. I have been so inspired, that a short fic is forthcoming... First line... Jakob lays back against the pillow and smiles.... Not quite right but I'm getting there :)

I guess it depends on what I feel like writing at the time. I might go for another of these today, but IDK yet

He's definitely not going to cause trouble, but, yeah, it can't be that simple ;P It's defintiely not going to be easy, but they do want to try and make things easier and less awkward

It's just that I feel like it should have more resolution than it seems to have at the moment. That probably means they want a lot more of the story than they're getting right now. There's definitely going to be a lot of pain all round, though, but I think I'll manage to get through it

Oh, it's going to be rough for Matti at first, but he'll be okay
I haven't seen that video, but it does sound interesting
Oooh! I do like the sound of you writing fic :)

Well, my day hasn't gone at all to plan, no writing done at all and now tea to cook BAAHH.

Hope your's went better. Glad Andy is not going to be trouble, and will wait for the next offering as and when it arrives.

Ahh, that sounds like a lot of rewriting to add the star plot details ... Poor you. Glad it is manageable though.

He had better be *stamps foot* . Please don't make him suffer too much, though he has the perfect face for suffering scenes... So moody....

You should def make time to watch it, it is worth it. YAAY for Matti video. Jakob and Andy have it on a constant loop. Ok shall stop now, have pimped the vid to it's max :)

Am planning purple pen prose when they all fall asleep on the sofa tonight! Fic writing is becoming my secret guilty pleasure ;d

Well, I'm writing something different to what I imagined too

I'm thinking now though that I'm not sure if this next fic will totally count towards the challenge seeing as it was mostly going to be about Rafa and Novak as opposed to the Rafa/Roger stuff so maybe I'll just write it outside the challenge. I'll see how it goes when I actually get to writing it

I haven't even written most of it yet, but I've been doing a lot of planning and it seems to have a mind of its own- there's a lot of people getting involved. I love the idea though and I'm excited about exploring it all

He's not going to suffer too much, but it's important that he suffers a little. If it helps, other people suffer too

I'm sure thye find plenty of time to watch

All sounds good :D
