Long Snake MoanPairing:
Alex/Ryland, Alex/OFC, Alex/Ryland/Gabe/Victoria/NateRating:
consensual but unenthusiastic sex with an OC.Summary:
Like everyone else, Alex's life will have four stages. First was his childhood. He was raised in Fish habitat with parents that kindly refrained from shapeshifting because all the best psychologists believed it alienated the incapable child from their adaptable parents, and all their close friends said shifting made their toddler poop themselves in fright.
At fifteen Alex left his childhood home to begin his five years of scouting, the process of furthering education so every youth can figure out which of the animal classes they should pledge to. Nineteen now, he’s close to pledging. When he does he’ll have to leave his communal living home, his school, and his best friend -and sometimes more- Ryland, in order to live in the wilderness and learn more about the animal side of himself. The things school can’t teach. Presuming he pledges successfully, lifelong symbiosis with one of the great Patrons of Nature -adulthood- is what follows.
Everything is going routinely until Nate makes Alex an offer he can’t turn down; a sneak peek at an adult habitat. It’s highly illegal for all concerned, but Alex knows this is something he wants to experience with Ryland. Unfortunately for him, Ryland is more interested in experiencing Gabe, one of Nate’s open relationship boyfriends.
Alex isn’t sure what class of animal he wants to pledge to. He’s not even sure if he believes in the six Patrons watching over all of them. All Alex is sure of is that he’s loved Ryland forever, and that he’s had a crush on Nate nearly as long, but neither come alone.Author's Notes:
I'd like to thank Jasley, who when I said things like GABE'S GONNA LIVE IN A SNAKE HABITAT! replied with things like 'but how will the city be warm enough for the snakes to live?' You know everything about everything. Thanks for letting me know some of it.
I'd also like to thank Our Lady Peace, one of my three favourite non-bandom bands. Their newest CD has a song called As Fast As You Can
, and the first time I listened to it my brain wanted to take it literally. And so there was Victoria, a girl running from a church because she had a snake moan, a girl who still needed friends.( Read more... )
