Beta'd by Serenity, thank you. I messed with the timeline somewhat, Gumdrops takes place BEFORE Shooting Stars because this fic leaves as as right where the video ended. OK, I made a video, which you can see at my Live Journal under Shacky20, or just email and I'll give you a link. Anyway, the video felt like a story to me, when it was done, I was like, this could have been a story, but I left it somewhat uncertain ending. Just the way the song was. And very surprising to me, many readers asked for a written sequel, like there was more to tell, and here's the sequel to the video. You really need to see it first to understand it. But for those of you who can't: Nick and Greg must learn to deal with their different kinds of pain after it already tears them apart, and one of the boys looks to another to forget, can they forgive and forget or is it too late, and knowing my love for angst, you really don't know. And I havent' written smut for awhile, so I'm nervous, Damn, ok now with the story.
