I'm glad to see someone finally made a comm for this awesome book. Here's a fic I wrote after reading the book a while ago; it has spoilers for the end.

Title: Thom
Words: 465
Pairing: Thom/Goran and Kevin/Scarlett
Rating: G, no warnings.

Except: "What about Mr. Fabulous?" Scarlett said, waving her hand limply without letting go of her pizza.

"What about Mr. Fabulous?" Scarlett said, waving her hand limply without letting go of her pizza. I glared. Goran laughed and I turned to him.

"Well, it's easy for you. You have a good one."

He looked pained a moment. "Some people are calling me the Dark Homo."

Larry snickered and tried to cover it by choking on a pepperoni. I smacked him on the back and the errant slice flew across the room. If Kevin hadn't ducked (another reason super speed was awesome-- super reaction time), he would have had disease-encrusted meat on his face. He crossed the grass easily and sat down beside his girlfriend, tweaking her curls good-naturedly. She smacked his hand without any real venom.

"Names aren't easy," Mr. "Veteran" Superhero confided to us as if he'd really been on the job for years before we showed up. I rolled my eyes.

"How far from here do you think I'd have to go to stop being recognized? Using my real name was a terrible idea."

"It worked for-- what's-her-name? That invisible girl with the laser-eyed boyfriend?" Larry mused. "Or was that just in the comics...?"

I laughed. "What's-her-name? That's ironic."

"I think you're stuck with Thom," Goran said.

"It's a mark of fame, you know," Scarlett said. "You're like Madonna or Cher." She giggled.

"When you guys said you didn't care I was gay, I thought you meant it," I said, raising an eyebrow and taking the excuse to plant one on Goran. Everyone groaned and then Kevin and Scarlett had to trade kisses of their own.

"You don't know any women immune to disease, do you?" Larry said pointedly into the silence.

"You could always go around coughing on them at League meetings and see which ones manage to make it to the next meeting," I offered, coming up for air. Goran's hand was firm on my back, and comfortable. The other picnickers around our group weren't staring-- at least, not because of the kiss.

As one of the only superheroes with a public civilian name, I got a lot of media attention. So did Goran, once the whole cape switcheroo had come out into the media. There was always speculation around the odd group that came to picnic at Ruth's grave every year, given that they were with us. No one knew who Ruth really had been, though, and Kevin had managed to pull a few strings in that area for us.

Larry sulked. "They won't let me get close enough."

"Give it time," Kevin said, indulgent. "Maybe you'll meet a civilian girl with a great immune system. You never know."

"And maybe Thom will change his name to Major Gay," Goran said, and we all had to laugh.

Maybe I'd just keep my name, after all.

It's a real shame! I hope that when the sequel and the show comes out that it will provoke more fanwork. Thanks for commenting~
