Seasons change, and so do fashion trends. But in this heartstring-tugging PsyCop short, what’s beneath the clothes matters most.
Do clothes make the man? Jacob Marks cuts an impressive figure in his tailored suits, but Victor Bayne is another story. Nowadays, Vic does his ghosthunting in off-the-rack blazers, polyester blend slacks and cop shoes with nonskid soles. But back before he was a PsyCop – or even officially psychic – he rocked combat boots and a beat up biker jacket, and lots and lots of punk T-shirts. When he finds a faded tee in the back of a drawer, he’s eager to lob it in the trash. Jacob, however, finds himself waxing sentimental about Vic’s younger, more carefree days.
This steamy 5000-word PsyCop short in Jacob’s voice takes place after PsyCop #6, GhosTV.
I think this is my favorite of all the little side stories. It is an amazingly sweet look at Vic through Jacob’s eyes and it just GLOWS with his ardor. He loves Vic so, so much. Fascinating and so touching.
Gomez does such a nice job of showing us Jacob’s low key enthusiasm for his man here. It really made me want to cry, I was so touched.
I’m really glad that Jordan has said Gomez is going to do the entire “Briefs” in audio format so we can hear them all!
(I just love the lighting on this cover. It really captures that warm feeling this story evokes. Well done, all around.)
