This fic is heavily inspired by the film The Big Chill. Occasionally bits of dialogue are used from that film, though I did my best to make it all my own. Many thanks to nudaydreamer who provided the Beta on this. Apparently commas are not my friends. Also she helped a lot with choosing a title. Sting's 'Fortress Around Your Heart' was on looped play for the last 3 months while this fic consumed my life. Now I don't know what to do with myself.
Warnings: Character Death, Drug Use
Spoilers: The Lost Boys
