Notes on the story
This story has girlfriends, ex-girlfriends, roommates, ex-band members, and I gave myself the liberty to make them angels or assholes or something in between. A character’s personality does not reflect my own view of the real life correspondent in any way. I don’t know any of these people and the characters are entirely fictional.

Here’s an almost full list of pairings: Ryan/Brendon, Ryan/Jac, Spencer/Haley, Jon/Cassie, Brendon/Shane, Ryan/Keltie, Greta/Butcher. Lesser pairings and insinuations can also be found, like Audrey/Joe, but my favourite is definitely Brendon/David Bowie. This list is missing some pairings because secrets are pretty awesome too.

A patronising paragraph: gay men do not practise safe sex in this story. The 70’s were before the AIDS epidemic and most gay men simply did not use protection. However, now we know better and act accordingly. This story in no way promotes unprotected sex – it is simply trying to accurately depict the time period.

As far as accuracy is concerned, I have not witnessed a day of the 70's myself, however, and I am sure that at some point there will be something I messed up. Feel free to point this out to me, though, like, "Hey, I don't think they had iPods in 1976". I tried fact checking whenever I could, e.g. they did have frisbees in the 70's! Hopefully errors in accuracy are few.
