Notes: Addicted Taylor and hurt Nate for a nice change -
The display of the alarm clock read 4.12 a.m. when I opened my eyes for the first time that night.

I fumbled in the bed, grasping weakly the fresh sheets. He wasn't back yet. Wherever and whoever he was with, I didn't care anymore. Even worse, I couldn't tell if I was relieved or embittered not to find him there.

I didn't pick up the phone, he didn't bother to call either. I just knew he was out, doping up, and he knew I was home, waiting for him. He was sorry, he really was. But he just wouldn't stop and we sure as hell didn't talk about it. We argued. We fought. We threw glasses and screamed. But we did not talk. We did not communicate. There was no need. He knew the words I would say, I knew the answer he would reply with in his mind.

I curled into a ball and hugged my knees tightly, bathing in hot tears. I hid my face in there till I fell asleep again.






When I reopened my eyes, it was 6.43. He woke me up. Involuntarily. I heard him kicking the nightstand and swearing under his breath. I didn't move, though. I guess I was too tired to face the guilt on his face. I saw his shadow throwing his shirt on the floor and getting rid of his pants clumsily, as he panted with struggle to keep the balance.

He stretched like a cat and ruffled his own short hair as he glanced at me or the bed, I couldn't say. But then he went for the bathroom anyway. He picked his bag and headed to the shower. He didn't even bother to lock the door. Not that he needed to. It was a long time we weren't playing pretend anymore. And it hurt. It hurt like hell.






The third time, I didn't even open my eyes.

I squeezed them lightly, but I could tell he didn't notice. I did it because he scared me. His sweaty hand did. Anything could happen when he was on drugs, but what I didn't expect was his hand brushing my cheek. He was propped on his elbow, the other arm stretched to reach me.

Sometimes, he still touched me as if I was a flower. I guess he had to make up for all those crazy nights he didn't.

A wet kiss was pressed upon the side of my neck, his fingers dancing in circles on the purple bruise on my cheek, pressing slightly down on it.

“I missed you” he told me in a hoarse, regretful voice that made me want to punch him harder than ever. We used to be so different, only a year earlier. Now I could barely distinguish short blonde strands becoming one with red hair as he rolled on his side and hugged me from behind. His arms surrounded me and his legs intertwined with mine, the usual feeling of being both protected and locked up sticking to me. “I really missed you, baby.”

Holy crap. I really really like this. Not usually a fan of Nate and Taylor but wow this is good! Feel really bad for Nate here.. poor guy! And your Taylor gave me this weird *blech* feeling.. Which I never ever thought could be possible lol.. thank you for this!

Julietds's response: Yay! Your review made me very happy, it's my first fic focused on this pairing and I was a little unsure about the outcome, so thank you very much :) I felt bad for Nate too, but it was a nice change writing about the dark side of Taylor!

CrazyInBC's response: 💕😊

*Flexes fingers* Let’s see if I still got this….

Hello, Junior. As demented and megalomanical as ever, and dear Lord have I missed you. His sadistic amusement when he realised James was referring to Lars was simply evil. This is going even better than he anticipated, isn’t it? He’s fucking with James’ head and he’s loving every second, and James, even in such a compromising position, can only think of Lars. And God only knows where that man is right now, while James is paying this terrible price. When Junior was stroking over James’ face, I mentally prepared myself for the horrible climax I knew was inevitable, but still, I buried my hands under my armpits and winced when I read that scene. Jesus Christ. One part that got me is when James mentally begged Junior not to get up and leave him. This guy literally just broke two of his fingers, but James still sees him as some kind of protector – relative, at least, to Chris, unfeeling hunk of meat that he is. I guess when you effuse that kind of effortless power, even those you oppress come to have some sort of sick reliance on you. Brilliantly subtle on your part. “ I'll understand if you can't resist looking at me." Is it wrong that I laughed? He’s such an asshole. Oh, I love him. And I loved (and hated, too, I don’t know how you’re your characterisation has a life of its own) him even more when the whole condom thing became apparent. He’s been planning this. Of course he has. No one’s coincidentally this perfect and methodical in their villainy.

"You don't know where the fuck his asshole's been." Another guilty, slightly bemused chuckle. How about ‘he doesn’t know where your filthy cock has been’, how about that for some perspective, Chris? Huh? The following passage, where James ruminated on Cliff, and how Chris was going to contaminate him forever, brought me rather heavily back down to earth and reminded me that this is rape, one of the worst thing you can do to someone, to a character that for all his faults I actually care about. That really sobered me up, and I felt absolutely horrible for James. The double meaning of “this is all that’s left?” was another fantastic device. Chris and James’ thoughts couldn’t be more different at this point, yet they can still be summed up quite neatly by a simple yet devastating sentence. And then, that ending…wow. What a cliffhanger. I’d forgotten how much of a fantastic writer you are. —Slaxl19, for Augustine's Ain't My Bitch

Hahaha!! I squealed.. literally. Not even sorry! Chadwick ya big horndog!! I'm sure he would just LOVE to guard our little Joshies body.. among other things. Heh.. but seriously. I need more lol —CrazyInBC, for notoffkilter's Old Hollywood
Yeah, Slash, you're really the one suffering here. Get some perspective, darling, it Axl that has to deal with lady parts. You, in kind, only have to deal with some very, very confusing feelings. And I'm loving watching you squirm ;-) They needed to have this talk. They need to have another talk, too, but baby steps and everything...it was so cute to see Axl trying to figure out the logistics of where he should stand onstage to accommodate Slash's hang-ups. I have to agree with Slash: "Even when you were a son of a bitch you were a bit of a bitch." Very well said. —Slaxl19, for envygreen's Moral of the Story
