Title: I’m Your Moon
Warnings: Family abandonment, homophobia
Just a very short ficlet inspired by Jonathan Coulton’s “I’m Your Moon.” Dedicated to Foster, who encouraged me to cross All the Jonathan Coulton with all the Community.
I’m your moon, you’re my moon, we go round and round
From out here it’s the rest of the world that looks so small
Promise me you will always remember who you are
Who you were, long before they said you were no more.
They both have bad days. There are days when Abed can’t talk, and there are days when Troy can’t do anything else. There are days when Abed doesn’t want to be touched, and days when Troy feels like he’s going to fall apart if no one hugs the shattered pieces back into place.
They try to make sure these days never coincide.
It’s not a perfect system, but it’s the best one either of them has ever had.
