Everyone wears a mask. What we see of people on the surface is so rarely what’s ticking underneath. And, in Cortland Hunt’s case, what he’s hiding might just be more than Ian Tanner is prepared for.
Breaks is the story of two young adults coming to terms with who they were, who they are and who they’ll become.
It’s a love story…but a little broken.

The reaction (and your kind comments re my injury) last week were just amazing. you guysssssss. And huge thanks to Malin for jumping in and helping with comments where I was unable to type easily. I'm still in pain, but it's more localised now, at least.
More importabtly - Yay, Harvey! yay, Cortland! BOYS! You did a conversation and it is a hard one, but you're doing so well.
And you guys, your support is just amazing. Thank you xx
@EmmaVieceli: Malin is home sick from work today since it's that time of the year :(, but answering comments I can do. Seriously, all you people are amazing, it makes me smile so much reading every single comment on this. We've got some interesting emotional developments in store, so make sure you fasten your seatbelts.
It's great to hear that you are doing better. It's got to be hard to do less of something you do well, particularly when you so clearly enjoy it.
This page, for example, is another beautiful partnership with sly humour and subtle suggestions. Hypersentive Cort, who'd rather fight than be laughed at. Reality intervening before we get to man hugs and uncomfortable conversations about feelings. And then that last panel, with a vulnerable, almost sheepish Cort letting the cat out of the bag (again). Which, I suspect will create a bit more drama. With Cort coming out the ticker is running on how long it take word to spread and other people to put two and two together. Ian might be ready for the relationship but he's not been willing to go public just yet.
I'm terribly sorry I haven't left a comment in ages even though I keep up with the updates! DX Work takes more of my time (and mental energy) than I'd prefer unfortunately..
Anyway, I just wanna say thank you both for a splendid job with this lovely story and also if I could I'd like to congratulate our boy here for all the progress he's made! I'm so proud (and am pretty sure everyone else is too)!
Also, I hope the pain from your injury doesn't cause you too much discomfort and I pray your injury heals as fast as it possibly can <:(
Ohhh, I missed the last update and got to read both of these together, what a treat! First of all, I hope you feel better and please don't overdo it for anyone's sake. Your health is most important! That said, I love this interaction so very much. Harvey and Cort really needed this. Thank you guys for the lovely update!
