Summary: What starts as rebound sex quickly turns into a downward spiral of co-dependent addiction. Adam and Tommy both bring heavy baggage to their relationship: Adam is being pushed harder and harder every day by an unsympathetic manager and is starting to long for the no-consequences life of anonymity he’s left behind, while Tommy carries the weight of a string of infidelities and personal insecurities. Their relationship takes them to a darker place than either of them could have imagined.

silentdescant: (dirty sexy beaten loved)
Since our fic won't be ready until tonight, Sarah and I decided it would be okay to post the mix a little early, as a kind of teaser for the fic. We had so much fun pulling these songs together, so I hope you enjoy the playlist. We picked out a line from each that particularly fits the characters and scenes, but it's not really a literal soundtrack. It does, however, follow the general story (vaguely), so this mix can give you a sense of the tone from beginning to end. We're so excited to post later. Enjoy this in the meantime!

eta: the fic has been posted! :)

Title: Take A Step Before You Leap
Author: [livejournal.com profile] silentdescant
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] qafmaniac
Type: Romance
Word Count: 41,500
Rating: NC-17
Characters/Pairings: Adam/Tommy
Warnings: Canon drug use, internalized homophobia, consent play, verbal descriptions of a rape fantasy.
Summary: Tommy has always insisted he's straight, but he’s an open-minded guy. He has all kinds of friends, and he doesn’t judge any of their actions or preferences. So why is it so difficult for him to accept his own attraction to Adam? This is the story of their relationship, from the first audition to the end of the tour.



Notes: First of all, I need to give a few very special thank-yous to my betas: [livejournal.com profile] andlightplay, for plot discussion and cheerleading; [livejournal.com profile] ciel_vert, for fact-checking all of this canon; and [livejournal.com profile] random_yayness for helping me fix everything and clean it up at the last minute. I couldn't have done it without these ladies. ♥ I also have to thank [livejournal.com profile] lambliffhistory and the awesome people at [livejournal.com profile] rat_bert for supplying such detailed information. And finally, thank you so very much to my artist, [livejournal.com profile] qafmaniac, who turned out some truly awesome graphics for this fic. Check out her art post for more!

This fic has driven me absolutely crazy over the past few months, and I'm so glad to finally be able to share it with you. It's a story that's been in my head since I joined this fandom. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I've enjoyed writing it. :)
