He has to move to Huntsville, Alabama—a daunting prospect for a gay pescetarian from Los Angeles who’s never been south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Fellow engineer Cody Ewing is an Alabama boy through and through, and Julian’s casual assumptions about the South in general and Southern homophobia in particular makes it dislike at first sight. Then NASA throws them together on a months-long project, and they have to make it work.

Forced to rely on each other, the two men develop a tentative friendship that becomes something more as Cody shows Julian Alabama’s good side. Julian’s insistence on secrecy and Cody’s hot-and-cold act could scuttle their chances before they ever get off the ground, though.

Julian Barlow moved from Los Angeles to Alabama for a job in NASA, which was his dream job. What he isn’t looking forward to is trying to adapt to a new culture, a new town, a new job and new colleagues. When Cody Ewing goes to find Julian and show him around his new job he overhears a phone conversation of him complaining about the people and their different attitude from what he is used to. Cody takes offense to the way Julian talks about his town and his people. Cody takes it upon himself to show Julian around town to show him that homosexuals are very much accepted.

They are well created, three dimensional characters that I became invested in.  A good job, considering this was a short story.

Fun and introspective, this story shows that communication is a large part of keeping misunderstandings from poisoning a relationship. We also learn that first impressions can be wrong and people can be completely different from what you thought. I completely enjoyed this story and recommend it to fans of the genre.
