This Hour I Lost-Vaughn - Jutoh (P3)

Two men are sharing a bath filled with bubbles. The one on the right pours champagne directly into the other’s mouth. They are both laughing, looking elated.

Dear Author,

These two are together against certain odds and chances. The one on the left is the rich, party boy, maybe even a millionaire. Never had to work, never gave much care, felt entitled, likes the finer things, never saw himself mingling with the other people and side of the world. Not terribly friendly, sarcastic, aloof, etc. Beautiful and “ice princess” if you will.

The one on the right has always had to work hard for everything he’s got. I’m not sure I see him as a father, but maybe he’s been left behind to care for his two to three younger brothers. He’s modest, but he definitely has bigger dreams. He works with his hands creating beautiful furniture or homes. He doesn’t put up with people’s shit, least of all from a spoiled guy who knows nothing about his world. Please don’t write him as the typical everyman that is innocent. He’s been around the block and then some. He’s scrappy… rough.

They meet by chance. They fight, but right after the rich guy ends up with amnesia and runs into the other guy whose motives you get to determine decides to convince the other one they are married and takes him back to his place as husbands.

I’d like it if both men were in their late twenties to mid-thirties.These two should fight and have fire, I wouldn’t even mind this to be dark and gritty. Please no super fluff! Make these two guys WORK for their HEA. Please no insta-love. I also don’t want gay-for-you at all. Please make both gay or bisexual. NO family angst due to sexuality, drugs/alcohol issues, or anything else. I want the issues and struggle to come from the two men and them falling in love. I want there to be an awakening of betrayal once it’s revealed. I want ANGRY sex. This should be a complete story from meeting, amnesia, to the adjustments and falling in love, to the reveal, to the HEA. Everyone’s idea of romance is different, but I imagine these two as having atypical ideas and styles to romance. Surprise me with something that makes me melt into a puddle of goo.

This image is perhaps after one of their epic fights. They have come inside after getting dirty or throwing dishes, something They are at the point where they say fuck it and decide to get naked and drink champagne and start laughing… finally bonding. Or perhaps they are celebrating the rich dude’s birthday that the other has made up a date for. You can tinker with the idea a bit.
