Who is this sassy lost child
[ *  *  *  *  *  *  * ]
There was something to be said for those clutch survival instincts that kicked in when everything was in overdrive. Everything was automatic, unthinking, and it was a good thing. If he'd had the time or the capacity to think, Jae would have no doubt been lost in the pain, the shock, the revulsion at what he was doing. Later, when he did have time to think, he'd reflect on how those few minutes of mindless movement were probably what saved him from losing an eye.

He jerked backward when Alvaro lashed out at him with the chunk of wood. Fast, but not quite fast enough to dodge, sharp edges digging into his skin and dragged across, a startled, pained cry, blood on his face. He didn't scream again, didn't have the breath, and the sudden backwards movement sent him toppling to the side as he tried to put weight on his injured knee.

In the moment of reprieve, Alvaro wriggled out of Jae's reach across the floor, struggling to get to his feet. Jae grabbed at the bedframe to lever himself up and yelped when the movement sent pain lancing through his broken fingers. It dimly occurred to him just how badly Alvaro might have fucked him up. The thought put a little more fuel back into the fires of Jae's rage and adrenaline, and he staggered to his feet after Alvaro, wincing as his leg protested but didn't collapse again.

"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
