More Issues than a News Stand

Unwelcome Emotions

Fear

that N will end the relationship because he's been too forward, (the fear is lessening, but that doesn't make it gone)

losing his soul

Sadness

wishes this all could be easier, simpler

that N can't leave Below, (he'll never get to see him in the sun)

he's ruined everything by being too forward

Anger

Scarlet knows about his feelings, but seemed to be claiming N anyway

Confusion

doesn't understand where all these new emotions are coming from

how can he feel so much for someone so new to him? ...for that matter, for anyone /at all/? It feels so sudden.

Frustration

doesn't want to be jealous

ah wish ah knew how to quit you

emotions seem to be driving him instead of vice-versa

Weariness

getting too old for this shit

masks are heavy

this situation fucking sucks

Jealousy

Bar gets N's love

Scarlet might occupy a similar space to him in N's needs

Worry

he has thievery jobs that *must* be done

if he gets caught stealing, it will hurt people and he will lose them, (when John visits, he will have to be careful)

he could be replaced in N's life by anyone, especially Scarlet, (it will take work if he's to lose that kneejerk jealousy)

that as he's getting older he's losing his ability to be a fun person to be around

that people will think less of him when they find out what he doesn't know

Regret

wish he'd never said anything to Nathan about his feelings

Shame

ignorance about 'Neath matters

ignorance of so much through his life

has been so selfish

Welcome Emotions

Love

he doesn't know why it happened, but it did

Happiness

that John will come and visit

is rediscovering his performance skills, (and that he hasn't lost his touch)

the image of N's face upon receipt of his gift

Calm

in the Flit, looking down over the city, (everything seems so much simpler up here)

clear path with N

Relief

that N thinks they're close, (and that he'd like to be closer)

that he's N's only lover, (and that's likely to stay that way)

Wonder

that love feels so /incredible/ when things are going well, (the way a touch makes his breath catch in his throat), (the simple joy of having N near)

what /is/ it about that man?

Anticipation

love will be even better when they are more intimate

working slight-of-hand into his act will be fun, (working on his act at all will be fun)

showing John the 'Neath

can't wait to know N better

looking forward to his steamer party, (he should start planning that soon)

Hope

that N will fall for him

that things will become easier

Neutral Emotions

Resolution

never to say "I love you" first

not to give up, even if it would be easier

to keep his promises not to run

Lust

for Nathan

for ?

Curiosity

when the hell did he become a man who cries?

would N and John get along?

can he find a balance between thievery and fooling?

why did it take so long for him to think about John with regards to thievery?

what else has he missed?

Need

more friends would be nice

more places of serenity

continued stability in his footing with N
