DecemberCon 2017. John Perlan, aka YouTuber “SmileyNibor,” has come to the con for one reason and one reason only: to see his idol, actor Derek Kitow. And since Derek has announced he’ll be dressed as the original Aquaman, Perlan decides to come as the Aquaman reboot. It helps that he already has the beard and the bod to make a convincing Momoaman.
But when Derek Kitow makes his entrance, he recognizes Perlan from his tiny YouTube channel and wants him onstage! Has Kitow been following him online? Could SmileyNibor’s hero also be a fan? And what exactly does Kitow have in mind by inviting Perlan to meet him after the panel?
I was pretty excited to see that it was Advent time again and I picked a story that I thought would bring me a bit of happy m/m love with a Christmas twist. I was partially correct…I got the m/m love down and BOY, Did I Get It!!
We meet John while at this cool DecemberCon getting dressed up and the only reason he’s dressing as Aquaman is because his crush, Derek is dressing as Aquaman. It’s really kinda cute and stalker-ish…but I think it’s really adorable. Derek is just as cute when he pulls John up on stage with him. Derek then invites John to his trailer after stealing his trident. I like that John is this sweet guy who wants to make it as an actor and he is doing some work, but he’s also working as a part-time welder. He made his own trident and he filmed it on YouTube. Derek is a working actor whose life is in the public eye and yet…he’s a got a secret that he shares with John.
From the moment John enters Derek’s trailer…it’s game on with the sexy times and it was plentiful and very sexy. I mean…very sexy. I liked how John and Derek seemed to fit together and I really loved that they had some pretty great communication. I have to say that this short story packed a hell of a punch and I like that it showed the best of both of these characters.
A really fun, quick, sexy read and it was well worth it. Pick up your copy today!!!
