Title: Over the Hill and Beyond the Moon
Pairing: Ryan Seacrest/Simon Cowell
Summary: Ryan struggles with his insecurities as he faces his fortieth birthday. Simon makes him feel better.
Length: 8,000 words
Notes: Despite the fact that I prefer RPS that is canon-based to the greatest extent possible (since I like to believe that these things could actually be true), this story ignores the recent drama involving Simon and his impending fatherhood since, frankly, I have no idea what to make of all that.

PROLOGUE. Wearing nothing but a pair of boxer briefs, Ryan stood in front of the full-length mirror in his bedroom and exhaled a deep, heavy sigh.
