[boyxboy] [#143 in teen fiction] [completed]                                                    His parents are drug addicts and alcoholics.
His brother is in a gang.
His sister doesn't talk much.
He plays baseball and knows how to stand up for himself. 
What's one more thing added to the list going to do? A lot. 

Orion is gay, and that one little uncontrollable identity pushes him over the edge, when it should set him free.

What a sore loser. You're a real piece of work thinking you can just punch someone because you got butthurt over a lost game. How unsportsmanlike. Get your ass off the field.

if you can't handle anything, why bother trying? you have to build thick skin in order to make it and if you haven't already, then you just have to learn how to toughen up if you're that serious about it
