Title: Can't Touch the Sun|
Fandom: Good Omens. A Themdrabble.
All the Them, grown up now but still together, are in love with the same man. The sun around whom they've all revolved since they were five years old. Adam Young.
Adam is untouchable. Not aloof in the way he treats them, or in any way he can change - he's their best friend, after all - but there is something indefinable in Adam that sets him apart from the rest of them. Anything more than friendship would be... almost sacrilegious, somehow.
Brian and Wensley make do with each other. And Pepper, not fitting their tastes, is left standing alone.
This makes so much sense. That they'd be in love with Adam, obviously. That Brian and Wensleydale would turn to each other, because, well, it's not Adam, but it's the next best thing--it's someone who knows Adam, understands Adam, understands the way you feel about Adam because he feels the same way. That if Adam's untouchable, and the others of the Them are unavailable, Pepper would be alone--because no one else *would* understand.
And my comments are now longer than your drabble, I think. *g*
Oh, lovely. Poor Pepper.
And as if it wasn't bad enough being named Pippin Galadriel Moonchild...
