It took him a long fucking time to kick his habit. Maybe I’ll get there one day, if my addictions don’t kill me first, I don’t know. In any case, I’m not sure of what to say. I never am. So instead of groping around for some half-assed apology, I just say the first thing on my mind.
“Izz… I’m scared.“ ...
"The sky is cloudless today, a vibrant blue, and I have to close my eyes against the harsh sunlight as I lay down on my back, pointy elbow resting beneath my tired head. I know I'm going to get a sunburn today. But I don't care. The cool grass of my favorite hill on the outskirts of Lafayette, Indiana feels good against my warm skin." Just a short piece, a moment between Izzy and Axl pre-Gn'R....
There was hell hidden deep in his hazel eyes, and hatred for the world that had wronged him all these years lived like some terrifically wicked monster just beneath the surface of his chest, as if ready to break loose at any given moment. He was always on the edge of madness, his mind constantly buzzing with atrocious thoughts and the run-down ruins of a child’s destroyed innocence, and I loved him in spite of, maybe even because of, all these different things that made him who he was....

“Hey, babe, you ready for practice?” God, Duff loved it when Izzy called him ‘babe’. The word sounded so good in that deep, melodic Indiana drawl that had coaxed Duff out of the nightmares his mind held and back into a blissful, oblivious sanity time and time again. A warm, humble smile graced the bassist’s lips and his chocolate-colored eyes shone.
“Sure, Izz, just give me a sec.”...
“Izzy, don’t do this. We can make it through, we always have.” Duff pleads, hurt evident in his eyes. Izzy has to force himself to turn his back to Duff. If he can see his anxious, angelic face, in particular those gorgeous chocolate brown eyes he used to stare into so much, he knows from experience it’s going to be too hard not to give in, and he also knows he can’t give in if he wants to keep his sanity. Not this time....
"Izzy closes his eyes for a moment, leans into the blonde, lets his scent envelop him, lets the wind carry him away to some distant heaven where this moment is all that exists." Fluffy Duff/Izzy one-shot....
"Duff doesn’t want to think about Izzy right now. Izzy is one of the main causes for all the emotional turmoil the blonde has been dealing with recently. No matter how much Duff tries to stop it, his band mate’s face begins to form in his head, that pale, emotionless face with those two gemstone eyes set into the middle of it, that dark, greasy hair framing it that somehow still manages to be attractive, the slight smirk at the corner of his mouth as vivid in Duff’s mind as though the man were standing right in front of him. Where is Izzy anyway? Duff doesn't know. With Axl, he assumes." Duff's in love with Izzy and he doesn't know if he feels the same way....

I hold a finger to my lips to shush Izzy before he has time to ask any questions that I can't answer, and he relaxes into my body. I feel awful, because I know I'm lying to him just as much as I'm lying to myself. He deserves someone way better than me. But fuck it, what choice do I have? And he never has to find out about the Slash thing. No one does....
Ah, I love that last line! Damn these two are crazy! —xyliana, for sgSixx's Bad Motherfuckers
Fucking brilliant. So well done... I applaud you. You were dealing with some really complex characters here are you've done it masterfully. They're real humans. The emotions are raw and twisting, and Ritchie's jab at David about dying of a broken heart made me laugh in the middle of this piece, which is hardly a funny one. I have a feeling that this is the kind of story that every time you read it, you notice something else or something different jumps out at you, so I know I'll be returning to it. Thank you for this and nice work. —therealgloria, for BaronZemo's California Scheming
