Tied Together Was Tied to What?

Early Tokio Hotel fanfiction invites you to imagine twins... who like each other... a lot.
I played with the concept a bit in Tied Together. Though while there was no blood ties between Robin and Josh they were raised as brothers and have the same last name. So naturally the Dark Angels fans referred to them as twins...

This video in particular called to me. I imagined Robin being outgoing on stage but completely different offstage. (The personal vs public personas) When I rewrote this I showed more of his demons: his fear of abandonment, his anxiety, not accepting the kinky side of himself, a deep love he felt he shouldn't have for Josh...


Tied Together Blurb:
Josh has loved Robin since the day they met, although he never dared to follow his heart. After the two are kicked out of their house, a night of despair turns into a night of discovery, forever changing them both. One taste of his dream leaves Josh hungry for more, but Robin’s fear of abandonment forces him to pull back, denying them both.

Their fortunes changed. Josh and Robin are now in the limelight with legendary megaband The Dark Angels, but Robin is still the scared little boy inside the rock star who isn't convinced he won't be left behind. He clings tightly to the word "brother" because stepbrothers can't leave, right?

There's only one way for Josh to prove to Robin, now and forever, that the love tying them together can never be broken.
