You Are Another Mystery I Am Missing: CCBB Fic
Tags: Grief/Mourning, Emotional Hurt/Comfort, Closeted Character, dumb boys are oblivious, Top!Darren (plus a slew of other sexual acts)
Summary: Chris and Darren were childhood sweethearts ripped apart when Darren’s family moved. Now after the death of Chris’ mother, they reunite and the feelings that drove them to have a pretend wedding at age four are still there. But Darren’s famous and in the closet, and Chris is in denial about so many things. How can they ever find their way back to each other?
WARNING: This is an AU but it does start immediately following the death of Chris’ mother. If you are offended by that, find it in poor taste or it’s just not your cup of tea, then pass on by.
Thanks to @controlofwhatido for running the CCBB again this year, and for the word wars which were a big help in getting this thing knocked out.
A HUGE thanks to my beta, @drosophilase for making sure this thing flowed correctly and was not full of spelling and grammar mistakes.
Another huge thank you to @radiantelester, the artist who made an amazingly adorable piece of art for this fic which can be found here! This is the first time I’ve ever had fan art for one of my fics and this just makes me squee every time I see it!
Finally, I have to thank @froggydarren for being my constant comfort and support, my eternal cheerleader. For putting up with my wedding brain, for trading headcanons and meta and always being there, even just to talk when I needed her. I don’t know what I would do without you hun, you’re one of my best friends, the other half of my brain and I love you so much. This is for you. <3
