round six prompt post - spoilers

IMPORTANT: Please don't forget to warn for any triggers (these can be found in the Rules post), better to warn when in doubt. If a prompt is not warned for triggers and contains them, it will be screened and you will be asked to re-write it with the appropriate warning. This is to ensure a safe environment for everyone. If you have any questions/concerns regarding your prompt, don't hesitate to use the mod post.

IMPORTANT: Please put what pairing or character your prompt focuses on in the header of the comment!

IMPORTANT: If a discussion starts that has little to do with the prompt itself, please continue or start the discussion over at the Free For All Post located here.

IMPORTANT: When reposting a prompt from a previous round. Please indicate what round the prompt is from.

IMPORTANT: Prompts can be reposted in later rounds, but not in the round directly following the prompt's original round. Prompts from Round Five should be reposted in Round Seven; prompts from Round Three should be reposted in Round Five. We will delete any prompts that I recognize from Round Five.

Round Six will be closed for 48 hours once it reaches ~2500 comments, and will be closed permanently once it reaches ~5000 comments. During the closed times, people are still allowed to post FILLS, but any PROMPTS posted will be deleted.

Refer to the Rules and Guidelines for Posting before posting a prompt/fill.
Direct any of your concerns to the Mod Post.
Both Filled and Unfilled Prompts are archived at our Delicious account.
You can also read comments in flat view, if that makes browsing easier.

[Fill] The Company Misery Keeps, Trevor/Mike/Jenny

Warnings: unhappy relationships, codependence

In some fucked up way, they did it because they loved each other.

You don’t spend over twenty years of being best friends and not fall at least a little bit in love. They never told one another they loved each other. They never defined what they had. They had never even agreed to be in a proper relationship. They just were. Things would be good for a while, things would be great, and then it would all go to hell in an instant.

It was a destructive love. One that wasn’t good for either one of them or anyone else that happened to get caught in between them. And people got caught in between them quite often. Most of them eventually got away, but some of them didn’t. Jenny never did.

In some small part of his mind, Mike felt a little bit bad for Jenny. She had gotten caught in their cycle of mutual destruction many years ago and had never really broke free of it. And maybe she had never really tried. Things had been bad long before she came along. She stayed anyways.

In some ways, she was just as bad as they were. Her affections were fickle and, intentionally or unintentionally, she brought out the worst in them. She brought out the jealousy, the insecurities, everything that they had tried so hard to keep each other from seeing.

She’d be interested in Trevor and friends with Mike. Mike would be jealous, and Trevor would be insecure. She’d break up with Trevor. She’d be interested in Mike and friends with Trevor. Trevor would be jealous, and Mike would be insecure. She’d break up with Mike. And all they way, they’d sabotage and undermine each other and somehow still be friends. Then she’d leave them both and they’d all be miserable. She’d come back. She always came back because individually they were self-destructive, but together they were something else.

Maybe their entire friendship was based on their seemingly unspoken understanding that they would never be and did not deserve to be happy. Maybe their entire relationship was built on their enablement of each other’s self-destructive tendencies. Maybe it didn’t even matter why and only mattered that they were together and slightly less miserable than they’d be apart.

They’d never be completely done with each other. They had long ago reached a point far past codependence.

Trevor would come back.

Jenny would take him back.

Mike would always forgive him.
