Disclaimer: As fake as Fakey McFakington.
Summary: Matt and Dom love each other but theres always been a problem in the relationship. One day, Matt figures out what the problem is.



Matt knew he was different. He sometimes thought he had always known this, before he would have been able to comprehend what this meant, let alone articulate this feeling.
He felt it everywhere. Amongst his family. He looked nothing like his brother, Paul. He looked like no-one in his family. Except perhaps his mum, but he now lived with his grandmother, so he wasnt't even sure that was true or if he had made it up to give himself something to cling to. As a small child, he looked like nothing else on earth. An impossibly skinny blur of a boy with a pointed face dominated by enormous blue eyes and at the same time, hidden by his thick black hair.
He felt different at school too.
The other children all played together, loud, rough games. The games were always a variation on age old childrens games and the circle of children themselves changed constantly, but no-one noticed, it was like new identical parts of a machine were being substituted and renewed.
Matt stood on the outside of this.
He played with music, finding that the identical keys of a piano each sounded a different note and could be combined and arranged in endless new ways. This became his playground, as did to a lesser extent, the guitar.
At thirteen, other children were bored of Devon and thought of going other places, like London. Matt had already seen much further with a ouija board and so he dreamt of the entire world, not simply the capital of the country he already lived in.
Acting and books offered another place for him to explore, to lose himself in. He met countless exotic characters in these books and it stretched his imagination even further, to the possibilities of not just life on this earth and een an afterlife but also life forms on distant planets, beings in shapes and forms no-one had even thought possible before.
In his acting, he found another way to free himself from the one human form he had been restricted to, imitating his fellow students or taking on the role of ancient heroes or animals or even stories his three female friends wrote for the stage.
His inner life was so rich and glittering that he almost forgot about the outside world. He scarcely had any flicker of interest in his own outward appearance. He let his hair grow long without paying any particular attention to the fact that it now touched his shoulders. He was barely aware of his thin frame or what he dressed it in.
This didn't mean he wasn't aware of the apperance of others. He looked at those around him, watched them sometimes, trying to understand why he liked looking at some of them, why some of them he simply liked looking at them, whereas with others he looked at them and felt some connection with them, almost recognised something of himself in them.
Then he met Dominic Howard.

    Oh, this is great! It really makes contrast between Matt and the other kids.

  • This is a very intriguing start!

    I really liked the description of Matt that you gave here: An impossibly skinny blur of a boy with a pointed face dominated by enormous blue eyes and at the same time, hidden by his thick black hair. I thought it was really lovely.

    I can't wait to see how Matt's life will change now that he's met Dominic!

  • Matt stood on the outside of this.
    Story of my life. And most of the following paragraphs, too. That's like taken from my school years. Alas, I never met a Dominic Howard. :(
