I wrote a thing based on that headcanon about Bitty coming out. It’s long (about 5k words). I would have posted it on ao3 but my brain is dead and I wanted to put it on here because of reasons (mostly becauase I don’t feel like finding a beta before I put it up on ao3, whoops). Also, I want y’all to know that I have this saved on my laptop as “Coming Out of my Cage (and my whole life is a lie).” Anyway, enjoy.
Bitty sighed softly and faceplanted onto his bed. He inhaled and smiled slightly at the scent of jasmine that lingered there thanks to his mother’s homemade laundry detergent. Rolling over onto his back, he stared up at the ceiling and his smile fell. Tomorrow was going to be a long day. How the hell was he going to be able to go through with it? Why did he even think this was a good idea? What if his mother reacted poorly? In public? She usually cared what people thought of their family but maybe this bombshell would make her freak out to the point where she didn’t? God, he wished Jack could be there with him tomorrow.
His phone buzzed from it’s place on his nightstand, drawing him out of his thoughts. He rolled over and checked who it was.
JZ: Are you still up? I would like to hear your voice before I head to bed.
