“My Gothic Boyfriend” is a male/male love story related to The House of the Seventh Minuet. It takes two minor characters from that story, Blackthorne and Justin, and provides their history and how they end up together.
Like The House of the Seventh Minuet, “My Gothic Boyfriend” will be posted a a serial, the difference being that it’s already completed, and much shorter. Another note: after my goth love story, Leila’s adventures continue in The House of the Eighth Minuet!
“My Gothic Boyfriend” contains a lot of tragedy, and true to its name, it is very dark. Here are some of the things you should be aware are in this story:
- Bullying (specifically due to homophobia)
- Authority figures not supportive of victim(s)
- Concealment of truth in relation to bullying and other crime(s)
- Growing up in poverty
- Suicidal/morbid thoughts (but not ideation/planning)
- Starvation and eating disorder(s)
- Hospitalization and intensive medical care
- Absent father
- Incompetent parent(s)
- Child abuse (memories, not direct or cuttent)
- Parents passed away (memories)
- Brief mention of infant mortality
As you can see, the main character has a very rough life. On the plus side, there is a happy ending!
While there is no sexual assault in this story, there are brief mentions of consensual, sexual things the characters did as minors, mostly in the sense of, “yeah, I did X.” The story begins shortly before one of the characters turns eighteen, but there is no sexualy activity between them until then. To be fair, the characters have known each other for years as best friend, and if they hadn’t started relationships with other people, they would have been together sooner.
This is a male/male romance story, and as such, there are plenty of scenes involving them kissing and much, much more.
