Apocalypse Now

Boys:
<the local boys are already there with drinks>
Boys:
<Loch takes a sip of his beer> So… Alexei didn’t even *blink* when he met Romy.
Boys:
<Ethan nods> That is one seasoned traveler.
Girls:
<The girls filter in as their jobs end, Taryn’s already there, sitting with a glass of water> Wow. She turns all heads.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> She really all that?
Girls:
<Saige sits in Loch’s lap, smiles>
Girls:
<Bree nods> Totally.. think Barbie live.. but with brains. She’s nice too. <smiles leans in and whispers> And Fucked Christopher.
Boys:
<Samuel arches a brow> Wait, now.. what? <looks at her> I didn’t think he flew that way. I thought he was more Mr. Relationship.


Girls:
<Bree looks at Samuel and nods> Oh and you should have *heard* him when he came back in. All but told Loch to fuck off. And the ongoing Truth or Dare game I texted you about.. stemmed from that.
Boys:
<Samuel nods> Nice. <smiles> Guess he needed the attitude adjustment, then.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Or somethin’. <smiles>
Boys:
<Samuel smiles, nods> Or somethin’.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Saige> And then we get into this conversation about girls swallowin’ and Ava says Ciara, who’s asleep on the couch, does. And Alexei shut her down hard and fast. He was barely even polite about it.
Boys:
<Tristan nods> *That* was impressive.
Girls:
<Saige smiles> Cool. Wish I’d seen that.
Boys:
<Ethan nods> Especially since most other guys would’ve gotten caught up in the guy talk and totally outted his girl on it.
Girls:
<Sang walks in with Renee, Renee kisses Akhiro and Sang drops in Ethan’s lap, Sang smiles at Ethan> Hey baby. Outted his girl on what?
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Then Loch said that Romy did and Quizzed Christopher who wouldn’t tell and Shay rescued him by saying she did.
Boys:
<Ethan wraps his arms around Sang, smiles> Swallowing. Alexei showed up at practice and his girlfriend, Ciara.. you heard *all* about Ciara.. had fallen asleep on the couch and we were just saying how Ava said she heard Ciara does and Alexei slapped her down. Not literally…
Boys:
<Loch smiles at Bree> And then Romy threw him under the bus saying of course she swallowed.
Girls:
<Sangria blinks> Wow.. That’s.. Wow.
Girls:
<Bree nods> Yeah.. Totally.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Van, smiles>
Boys:
<Ethan nods> Yeah. He was *not* having *that*. He said it was basically bullshit to talk about that about her especially when she wasn’t even awake to defend herself.
Girls:
<Sang smiles> Okay.. that’s actually kind of awesome.
Boys:
<Van looks at Bree, smiles, nods subtly to indicate he remembers the plan>
Boys:
<Tristan nods to Sang> And none of us could say shit because it was totally true and we totally shouldn’t be talking about a girl like that with her boyfriend sitting there like he’s not.
Girls:
<Lia walks in and kisses Van, whispers> Hera’s okay. Ate some grass.
Boys:
<Van looks at Lia, smiles> Okay, good.
Girls:
<Sang looks over at Tristan> There is that.
Boys:
<Samuel looks at Bree> Aiden’s at the club with Silver and Rad goin’ over the books.
Girls:
<Bree looks at Samuel and nods, softly> I’m really sorry about that. <blurts hoping the others don’t out her> So Van was telling me they updated the website with yet another new movie.
Girls:
<Sang looks over at Bree> Really? <looks at Van> Cool.
Boys:
<Van nods to Sang> Yeah.
Boys:
<Seth looks at Van, arches a brow> I do not check that site enough.
Boys:
<Van smiles at Seth> Hell, I’m surprised Sang isn’t updating *me*.
Girls:
<Sang smiles, pulls out her phone> Give me a minute and I will.
Boys:
<Van looks at Sang, smiles> Babe… seriously. When are you going to stop playing voyeur and just explore your subby side firsthand?
Boys:
<Ethan blinks, smiles broadly, looks at Aubrey> No, he didn’t.
Boys:
<Loch almost chokes on his beer>
Girls:
<Bree smiles> Seriously Sang.. It’s not a crime or anything.
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Sang, smiles> I’m there.
Girls:
<Saige blinks smiles at Loch> He totally did.
Boys:
<Van shrugs> Try it out. Then you’ll know for sure and you’ll be *much* happier in the long run.
Boys:
<Loch nods, buries his face in Saige’s neck to keep from laughing out loud>
Girls:
<Sang shakes her head and sputters> I… That’s not.. It’s… <looks at Ethan, blinks>
Girls:
<Saige smiles> It can be fun Sang.
Girls:
<Ren looks at Akhiro>
Boys:
<Ethan smiles> Baby.. I love you, but.. come on. You’re *way* too interested. It’s either that or my brother you’re hot for and considering you don’t bitch about the treatment of those girls.. I’m really leaning toward it *not* being my brother. If it is.. we have a problem.
Boys:
<Akhiro smiles broadly, looks at Ren> She is *so* out, now. She can’t even formulate a denial.
Girls:
<Sang shakes her head again and blinks again>
Girls:
<Ren smiles> I don’t think I’ve ever seen her that.. speechless.
Boys:
<Ethan smiles> Remember what I said about the counter and how “grrr” I was about it?
Girls:
<Sang nods>
Boys:
<Ethan nods> That was me kind of testing the waters.
Boys:
<Brennan looks at Ethan, arches a brow> You suspected?
Girls:
<Sang looks at Tristan>
Boys:
<Ethan looks at Brennan> Please. I know her better than anyone here *except* Tristan. Why do you think I keep giving her Van’s videos? It is *not* because I want her watching my brother fuck.
Boys:
<Tristan looks at Sang, smiles> It’s okay, Sang.
Boys:
<Van laughs> Oh, my god. <smiles> I was actually getting a little creeped out by your involvement in that.
Girls:
<Sang closes her eyes, and shakes her head again, Bree looks over at Sang> It’s not what you think it is.
Boys:
<Van looks at Sang> Actually, it’s not. And it’s not about sexism when it’s done right. The fact is, the *sub* is the one with the power.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Bree and swallows, starts to say something and stops, looks over at Van, quietly> Don’t.
Boys:
<Van nods> All right.
Boys:
<Seth looks at Sang for a second, smiles> Breathe, babe. If it’s not true, tell ’em all to fuck off. If it is true, tell ’em to fuck off anyway. That’s *your* business and the only one you need to talk to about it is Ethan.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Seth, nods, starts to say something else and stops again, remembers she’s got her phone in her hand and looks at it, pulls up the videos and hits delete>
Girls:
<Sang looks at Van> Thank you.
Boys:
<Van looks at her> Is.. that sarcasm?
Girls:
<Sang shrugs> Does it matter?
Boys:
<Van nods> Actually, yeah it kinda does, but.. I’ll take that as a yes.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Van> Whatever.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Sang> Oh for fuck’s sake, Sang. Get over yourself. It’s only a big crisis to *you*. You’re such a fucking hypocrite. You’ve never had any problem outting *everyone* else. But it’s you and suddenly, we’re all supposed to coddle you? Get fucked.
Boys:
<Van nods to Sang, looks at Bree> Okay, then.
Boys:
<David looks at Taryn, smiles> Here we go.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Loch> Fuck off, Loch. I didn’t *ask* for them to say fuck all to me about it. It was mine and I was dealing with it. I’m not the one that made it everyone else’s.
Boys:
<Loch smiles slowly> Oh, yes, you very much did. Every fucking time you rushed to find that new video and pull it up on your phone while you were sittin’ her *with* everyone else, you made it ours. Did you ever stop to think about how Van and Seth’s women who are sitting right fucking *here* next to them might feel about you doing that shit? Yeah. It’s on the internet so it’s totally out there for the world, but Jesus Christ, Sang, there was a fucking *reason* Van didn’t tell us about it for *years*. Who made it everyone else’s then? Because I seem to remember *you* havin’ a lot to do with that so don’t you *dare* talk to me about what who *asked* for.
Boys:
<Loch shakes his head> In fact, I seem to remember you having a particular talent for makin’ shit that wasn’t yours *everyone* else’s.
Boys:
<Lock looks at her> And yeah, I am totally aware that I was part of that shit, too.
Girls:
<Sang clenches her jaw> Right. I forgot. Everything is my fault. And for the record.. fuck it. <clenches her jaw tighter>
Boys:
<Loch smirks> Yes. Do that. Because it *always* works so well for you. This is your warning shot over the bow, babe. What goes on in our bedrooms is no longer up for public discussion. We are drawing the line right here, right now.
Girls:
<Sang looks at him> Yeah.. then shouldn’t that apply to *mine* too?
Boys:
<Ethan takes Sang’s hand, squeezes it>
Girls:
<Sang looks at Loch and narrows her eyes> *I’m* not the only one that plays the game.
Boys:
<Loch nods> Now that you know what it feels like to get outted on some seriously personal shit, maybe you won’t be so quick to do it to everyone else and yeah, it really does because personally, *I* don’t actually *want* to hear about what goes on in your bedroom. And yanno what else? <arches a brow> You think this *only* applies to you? Because it fuckin’ doesn’t. It applies to *all* of us. Ethan sent you the new rules. That’s how we play from now on.
Boys:
<Loch looks at her pointedly> And we’re not stoppin’ there. The majority of us are pretty much done with the naked hot tub parties.
Boys:
<Akhiro looks at Ren> Jesus Christ. It’s like their toppling the government.
Girls:
<Sangria narrows her eyes further, raises her voice> I give a fuck what goes on in yours.. hell I *saw* it. Okay.. it doesn’t only apply to me so get the fuck off my back and ride someone else’s for a while. I give a rats ass about the naked hot tub parties and Yeah.. I got the rules of the game.. and for your information I was okay with them. Apparently, *Van’s* the one with the issue there. So take. it. up. with. *him*.
Girls:
<Sangria looks over at Van, then at the others> I apologize that my issue became yours. <shakes her head> And for the ensuing clusterfuck. <looks back at Van> And for downloading your videos.. <looks at Seth> and watching them.
Girls:
<Ren looks at Akhiro and whispers> She actually had some of them before Van was outted.
Boys:
<Loch nods> Yeah. You saw it. And told everyone how I needed motivation. Fuck you, Sang. Van isn’t the one that had a problem. You’re the one that got shitty over it. You’re the one bein’ a fuckin’ hypocrite. And I’m the one that’s fuckin’ tired of it. And if you’re gonna issue one of your standard group apologies like you do *every* time you get called out on something, why don’t you apologize for the *real* issue which is complete and utter lack of consideration for other people’s feelings. Tryin’ to make this about somethin’ it’s not isn’t gonna work this time.
Boys:
<Akhiro looks at Ren> I don’t really think that’s the issue.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Loch> Are you done?
Girls:
<Ren nods>
Boys:
<Loch shakes his head> I guess that remains to be seen.
Girls:
<Sang nods> Good. You can go to hell and get fucked. I’m done with you dictating and playing judge and jury, like you’ve never done any of those things. Guess what, babe? You *were* a part of it. You think I have a lack of consideration… look in the mirror. You’re one of the worst offenders. Oh.. right.. it’s okay because *you’re* an asshole and it’s expected. Until you fix your shit.. stay the hell outta mine.
Boys:
<Van looks at Lia> Did you eat dinner?
Girls:
<Lia looks at Van, smiles> I was waiting on you. I figured we could eat when we got home.. I had a snack.
Boys:
<Van nods> Let’s go get something.
Girls:
<Lia looks at him, nods> All right.
Boys:
<Van nods, gets up and waits for her>
Girls:
<Lia stands>
Boys:
<Van takes her hand and heads out>
Boys:
<Brennan watches him go, looks at Sang> Yeah, that totally shoulda been me that outted you like that.
Boys:
<Loch looks at Sang> You know what the biggest difference between you and me is, Sang? While I might be an asshole and you might be God’s gift.. I’d give my friends the shirt off my back while you’d spit on ’em as you walked across ’em.
Girls:
<Sang looks at Loch and blinks> You’re so full of shit, Loch. <Taryn shakes her head> Enough! <looks at Loch> That was unfair and you know it. <looks at Sang> He’s right about a lot of what he said. You do get caught up in things, and it’s hurtful to some people. The road to hell and all that. Neither of you is flawless and we all love both of you. But I’m not going to sit here and listen to you tear each other apart. There’s obviously left over things that you need to get out.. but this isn’t the way to do it. <looks at Loch> You’re angry we get it.. but you’re fucking up your own rule. <looks back at Sang> And yeah you do need to have some consideration for other people’s feelings… but we *all* could do that more. We *all* need to respect each other more and our boundaries.
Boys:
<Brennan narrows his eyes, raises his voice> Shut *up*!
Girls:
<Taryn looks over at Brennan and blinks>
Girls:
<Taryn softly> I’m sorry. <shakes her head>
Boys:
<Brennan looks at Taryn> That wasn’t for you, but jesus fucking christ. <looks at Sang> *You*.. if you owe *anyone* an apology right now, it’s *Van*. Because he is probably the *only* one who had the right to throw that on the table in front of all of us. Ever since you found out about *him*, you have been *all* over his fucking sexuality like white on *fucking* rice. <raises his voice> And you’ve been treating it like a fucking *joke* because it’s so much *fun* for you. You don’t have that right, Sang, anymore than Van did outting you. But at least *he* wasn’t doing it for his own goddamn entertainment!
Boys:
<Brennan shakes his head> And as far as Loch goes, I’ve got news for you, Princess. When you broke it off with him, you accused him of shit and got to say *everything* you wanted without giving him the chance to defend himself. He didn’t get to say one fucking word. And you haven’t talked to him since then. So, here you go. *Now* he’s talking and he’s saying what he didn’t get to say before.
Girls:
<Sang looks over at Brennan, quietly> Neither was I.. <blinks> That’s bullshit Brennan.. I’ve tried to talk to him since then. At least twice.
Girls:
<Sangria nods, softly> You’re right about Van though. <looks down>
Boys:
<Brennan nods> And I could probably say some shit about that regarding timing and everything else, but honestly, I give a fuck if you and Loch start a brawl in the middle of the bar. But as far as Van goes…since you want to make sure the entire ship goes down with you, we’re *all* just as guilty. And Van played along all nice and shit like he does. But that’s not just something he does as a hobby, Sang. That’s his fucking life. And it’s time we had some fucking respect for that.
Boys:
<Brenna looks at the others> In fact.. it’s about time we had some fucking respect for *everyone*.
Girls:
<Taryn nods>
Boys:
<Brennan looks at Sang> Whether they’re on the asshole list or their one of the Golden Children.
Boys:
<Brennan shakes his head> And from where I’m sitting.. respect and a lack thereof is exactly what went wrong between Loch and Sang this last time.
Girls:
<Sangria quietly> I’m sorry. I’m sorry I’ve been such a raging cunt… <looks at Loch> and for treating you the way I did.
Boys:
<Loch nods> Yeah. <shakes his head> Me, too.
Boys:
<Akhiro smiles because he knew that was hard as shit for Loch to say>
Girls:
<Sang softly> Thank you.
