You know, I never imagined having one boyfriend, much less four. Jake, Archie, Coop, and Ian are still my best friends. They’re also even more entrenched in my life than I ever imagined. They’ve been my rocks, but I’m not the only one with issues.
We’re fighting our way to a new normal. I’m in therapy. Ian and I are dating. Archie introduced me to his grandfather. Both Coop and Jake’s moms refer to me as their son’s girlfriend. I don’t know how much our parents know about our relationship, but I also don’t care.
The holidays are here, and we’re halfway through the year. Everyone wants a piece of us. We’ve survived so much. We’ve been trying to figure out who we can be amidst all the drama and sabotage surrounding us. Now we have to figure out who we can be, period.
That starts with us.
It starts now.

It was a wonderful change of pace to not have the group battling outsiders for a change. A holiday break away from their families and the problems that normally would result from that. They got into better sync with each other and that was really nice to see. Great Job!
When the year started, I had one goal—make my AP classes count and keep my grades up. Both my focus and my grades started wobbling. Dating my best friends came with perks like hugs, kisses, and invitations to dances, but it also came with cons in the form of vindictive posts, hate mail, and vandalism of my car. I asked if it could get any worse, and I guess I got my answer. My college essays suck. My mother and I are racing toward a collision. My secret admirer might turn out to be a real friend. My dance partner wants to walk away to preserve our friendship. My best friend demanded I keep no more secrets. My first offered to move in with me. My second… he’s got my back. They all do. But what brought us together seems to be tearing us apart and I can’t jeopardize those friendships. I won’t. I thought losing them was the worst thing, but losing even one… it might be the change we can’t survive. The real key here isn’t what do I want… it’s am I willing to fight for it?

This is such a great example of how a reverse harem might evolve naturally. The situation is treated with respect as are the individuals. Again, Heather has taken on a sensitive subject and done right by it. And Heather, if you need it, I’ve got a Master at Arms Chief (E-7) and a Special Ops Colonel (O-6) I can bring with me to help out!
