    Summary

    Soul flowers aren’t a ticket to true love, he knows that well enough, but they do mean importance, significance, permanence. And so far no one has ever loved Steve significantly or permanently enough to leave some. Maybe that means he’s broken. Maybe that’s why he can’t leave any for her.

    So Steve lets Jonathan take Nancy home that night, and tries not to feel too bitter about the matching bracelet of roses on Jonathan’s hand.

    Summary

    Okay, so… Okay. Steve thinks that Eddie has a rubric or, or a checklist of some kind. A scale of sexual gratification, because he has a grand history of previous guy on guy fooling around, and Steve, first timer to all things gay, wanted to make sure he was doing right by Eddie and all his worldly experience.

    There are, Eddie thinks, several problems with this assessment.
     

    (In which Eddie has a teeny tiny secret, the Party just wants to have fun for once, and Steve is just rolling with the punches.)

    Summary

    There’s something about watching Steve and Eddie that makes his chest ache, just a little bit. Something that feels like it’s just out of reach, like if he could just jump an inch higher he could grasp it and know what it is, have a name for it, figure out what feels like it’s missing with Max. He never felt like something was missing with Max before. She was perfect. She is perfect! Like, sure, not actually perfect, because nobody’s actually perfect, but she’s perfect for him just like he hopes he’s perfect for her, and they’re perfect together.

    Maybe Lucas is overcompensating.

    Summary

    She didn’t expect to have to deal with the fallout of the letters - she doesn’t know what to do, now that she lives in a world where the people she loves know how much she loves them.

    Or, Max writes Steve a very honest letter.

    Summary

    When Eddie lifts his head, it’s just Dustin Henderson looking at him from the other end of the Harringtons’ long dining room table.

    And he looks pissed. “We gotta talk, Eddie.”
