With your tattoo AU I can't help but picture the fact that most of the Fakes probably would be so furious at the manager for putting his mark on their boy that they'd want to fly to Boston to deal with him themselves. Is the dude still alive, in your AU? I just like the idea of Gavin, Ryan, and Michael on a blood hunt for this asshole who hurt their love.
tbh I was mostly thinking of our backstory we had forever ago with Jeremy. so the manager is most definitely dead. Jeremy killed him himself, slitting his throat with a kitchen knife right before fleeing across the country. So unfortunately the Fakes wouldn’t have him to target to get revenge for Jeremy.
however, there were several patrons jeremy was forced to have ‘alone time with’ since they paid the manager a shit ton. so you know, could always get revenge against them too. though jeremy would protest it immensely
