Summary:

What if there was more to the story behind Brian’s ‘first time’ in the shower with his gym teacher? What if there’s a darkness in his past that perhaps even his Sunshine can’t penetrate? And what if that darkness was suddenly exposed, tearing Brian’s life apart? Will Justin be able to hold them both together while Brian fights with the demons in his mind?

Story Notes:

CW: This is going to be a very dark story with lots of potential triggers, so please be warned. Will include non-graphic discussion of child abuse, sex trafficking, rape and exploitation of children. I’ll try to keep the worst of it in the past but the descriptions of the characters’ trauma may still be offensive or triggering for some, so please don’t read if this will be a problem for you. TAG
