Yay, a Marcus story!

This sounds like it'll be fun! Happy parents? Confused parents? Given Marcus' personality, I think his parents are very reasonable people and I imagine they will give him the same speech you'd expect the parents of a straight person to give when they find out their child is gay, except in reverse! "Are you sure this is how you feel? Are you being true to your (gay) self, Marcus?" Interesting.

I was hoping his Dad would be called Arthur Dent (Hitch-hikers Guide to the galaxy) or even Arthur & Martha seeing as Marcus doesn't know whether he is Arthur or Martha himself at the moment.
