Now that they were living apart, it seemed to Felix that he did much more with Shannon than he ever had while living together. About once a week, sometimes more frequently, one would suggest an outing to the other, and they would try some new restaurant, take in a performance, or discover some place new together. It was this newness that kept Felix curious and interested, wondering at what Shannon might try next. The time they spent living together seemed strangely quaint and prosaic now, a distant miasma of the same few wine bars, restaurants, and parties. Now, they ignored most of the friends they had made as a couple, and spent time only on one another.

Felix preferred this immensely. Alone with Shannon, he caught glimpses of that strange, indefinable thing he had been seeking ever since the two of them had agreed to try honesty in their relationship. Each tempting taste kept him coming back for more.

They toured the Royal Academy of Arts today, keeping mostly to the classic collections as was the preference of both, staying out of the way of school groups and tours. Felix lingered before a painting of Thor battling the Midgard Serpent, a glance at the subtle explanation plate nearby recalling the story to mind. "Very different from the modern interpretation of the god of thunder, isn't he," Felix mused while studying the painting.

Shannon hated the nights when Felix wasn't home but it made the days they spent together all the better. He was radiant and happy as they wandered the halls of the exhibition.

Though he wasn't as educated in the world of art as Felix (that required reading and studying, two things they would never have in common), he had cultivated enough knowledge through live observation to contribute intelligently to their discussions. Occasionally, serious discussions were overrated.

He tilted his head as he regarded the painting. "From what I've heard, this century's Thor is mostly admired from the back in tight jeans. Imagine the response if they had taken a page from the classics."

"I don't know if I would go that far," Shannon cautioned. "There is the matter of plot and acting abilities to contend with. Do you think Chris Hemsworth could carry a film on his rear alone?"

Shannon had to cover his mouth and avoid eye contact to keep from laughing out loud. "From brightly-colored action movie to erotic documentary. That is high praise indeed," he said when he could speak.

Shannon led the way further down the hall, perusing the collection as he went. He stopped to take a closer look at one particular painting. "I don't think we're getting better with our subject matter," he said, referring to The Rape of Ganymede.

Shannon didn't either, especially given the title. "Have you read that story?" He would not be surprised if Felix had, or at least had an abundance of information about it.

"From the sound of it, it's the title that's really off the mark," Shannon said. "Though I hope Zeus wasn't still an eagle when he took Ganymede as his lover."

Shannon's golden eyebrows rose and it took him a second to find his voice. "How is that even-" He stopped the question before it could finish and raised a hand as if to hold it at bay. "I don't want to know."

"I wonder how the lack of knowledge leads people to imagine the world being creating through relations with animal." In some abstract way, perhaps it could make sense, not that he would have thought of it. "There's a word for that, isn't there?" Of course there would be. There were words for all sorts of depraved things.

"I suppose that's the problem with the present," Shannon mused. "People take everything too literally and then act on those assumptions."

Catching sight of another piece down the hall Shannon frowned. "Perhaps it wasn't a recent loss for some." He nodded toward the 'art' in question. "Is that what I think it is?"

The decoration was lovely now that Shannon took a closer look at it but he couldn't bring himself to like it in the museum. "Functional art," he said. "I understand the reasoning behind it but I can't help feeling that defeats the purpose of art."

Shannon's comment had been based on a feeling and he wasn't familiar with putting such thoughts into words. He took a moment before responding. "To be admired?" He thought of the art he had seen with Felix, today and in the past. He remembered seeing other people's reactions and overhearing snippets of conversation. "To be thought or emotion-provoking and discussed perhaps?" Either way, he didn't think of fireplaces when he thought of art.

"If I had seen it in someone's home, probably not. The only reason we are discussing it is because it is in the museum." He looked at Felix and asked, "Does that make it art?"
