Summary: A neurotic, self-absorbed painter unable to resist the lure of a certain pair of magnetic eyes, and an accidental muse with a dark, mysterious past that just wouldn’t leave him alone.

Disclaimer: I own absolutely no one mentioned in this story. All characters are fictional albeit inspired by and modeled on real people. No offense or defamation is intended. Not for profit, just a creative outlet for fun.
Author Notes: Thanks Cam (astrangerfate ), Heather (heatherofnight), Debz(zomzoms) and Kityara(kityara_chloe) for their rocking beta skills! Thank you so much KJ (stawberynvanila) for being so patient with me and all my last-minute changes! And finally, thank you wendy and highwaywoman for organizing this challenge year on year. Its the only way I get any writing done these days heh. No attempt has been made to be true to the boys' real life characters. This is AU and complete fiction. Dedicated to Vince(sammynce), my sweetest online friend without whom I'd have quit this fandom a long time ago. Feedback would be cherished forever :)
