(Feathers and Microphones 1)
A rock star branded by a demon…
A fallen angel with wings black as night…
Florian has been trying to get rid of his angel powers ever since he lost his last charge in an accident that was entirely his fault. Ever since he spends his nights bar tending at the local gay bar, ignoring his angel nature and pretending to be human. Until one night, he meets a sexy man with purple hair on the roof of the bar and he wants nothing more but to spend the night with him.
Seth has been wearing his demon brand for years. The price to pay to bring his band to the top. But these days, life is nothing but a drag, so even though he has to protect his rock star image, he goes to a gay bar, hoping to find some solace. When he climbs up to the roof to take look over the city at night, a beautiful man proposes to spend the night together, and for the first time in years, he accepts. Is this a mistake, or is there more hidden behind the eyes of the beautiful stranger?
The plan was only for the night, but will the men be able to let each other go, especially after the secrets they reveal the next morning?

“You make me forget everything. You make me feel like a regular guy. If you can get over what I did in the past, please come see me after the concert.”
Seth’s whispered words haunt Florian the whole day, and without making a choice he shows up at the concert, seeing the rock star in his element on stage. Making the choice even harder.
Seth doesn’t think he’ll see the angel again, so when the man suddenly shows up at his dressing room, it’s a nice surprise. But he knows that they’ll need to talk, because an angel and a man branded by a demon, or even a rock star and another man… That’s not going to be easy.
Only, after spending the weekend together, has the fate of these two men become intertwined in ways that they couldn’t foresee?

Just a one night stand.
A weekend of fun.
Then why is Seth banging on the window of the closed bar Florian is cleaning? Why does the man seem so upset when Florian invites him back into his apartment?
Seth can’t get the angel out of his head, he needs to see him, he needs Florian to come with him on tour. Only, Florian doesn’t seem that happy about the prospect, he’s convinced that it will only hurt Seth if he comes along, when Seth finds out about his past.
But it seems that fate has other ideas, as Seth’s rash actions puts them in a difficult situation.

“You need to leave before they find you here and realise there are no girls around or figure out what this bar is famous for.”
Seth’s rash actions puts everyone in a difficult situation, but at least he gets what he wants, Florian at his side. The media, social and otherwise, is buzzing with gossip about the picture of Seth banging on a bar window, looking all dishevelled. The band are trying to do damage control, but it’s taking its toll on Seth.
On his first day with the band, Florian joins them as they record a TV interview. But the questions they ask of Seth make his stomach hurt and he realises what Seth will have to go through to have Florian at his side. He needs to make a choice, but will it be the right one?

“Everything for the band, right?”
Florian is gone, leaving Seth and the band behind. He takes on a new identity and starts living on the fringes of the human world. He follows the band’s progress online, but stays as far away from them as possible. Until a man hangs up a poster next to him at a bar, a poster for a birthday concert from Seth’s band, a concert for Seth’s birthday, in two days.
Ever since Florian left, Seth has been focusing on his music, on his career. Anything to stop him from facing reality, anything to stop him from thinking. The birthday concert is just another gig, another meeting with the fans. But when he performs the new song he has been working on, and opens his eyes, suddenly nothing else exists but that one person in the crowd…
