    Summary

    Todd had always preferred to stay quiet, and the days following Neil's death were no exception.

    Even at Welton, among the Poets, he'd kept to himself, resisted any pull out into the unknown. He'd always stayed safe and quiet and watchful, seeing things that seemed to pass under everyone else's eyes.

    Then, after a play, a gunshot, and a funeral, he started seeing Neil.

    Summary

    Todd and Neil can be relied upon for awful parties which normally end in Todd forcing everyone to leave when they've got too drunk and broken something. This time, due to the divine intervention of Meeks, it's not Charlie who ruins the night for everyone and instead it's Pitts (who Charlie has always believed to be too tall for his own good and therefore clumsy). Charlie and Meeks manage to hide on the balcony instead of being herded out by Neil and Todd but beg to stay the night.

    Summary

    Charlie has perfected the art form of flattery with Meeks, it's the number one way to ensure Meeks's help with anything he desires (well, he could probably say the order and get a 'yessir' in response, but where's the fun in that?). He compliments everything intellectual from his answers in class, to inventions with Pitts, to Meeks's intelligent conversation and sarcastic comments. Charlie has a whole arsenal of compliments attributing to Meeks's mental capacity. It's boring to keep to the same old rota of flattery though, and Charlie thinks it's time to tell him how handsome he thinks Meeks really is.

    Summary

    Neil finally tries to find happiness while Todd runs away to be himself. Maybe it was luck that they both ended up in Walden at the same time nearly a decade after last seeing each other, or maybe it was just always meant to turn out this way.

    Summary

    Charlie can't lie: he's fucking bored.

    Spending the summer with the Overstreets seemed like a good idea on paper, but not when the destination was as dull as this, and not when they spend everyday the same. It's time to mix things up a bit, try something new. Pushing his friendship with Knox passed what he would define as friendship seems like the perfect idea.

    Summary

    Chris just rang Knox and asked him to meet her outside the school gates, and Knox knows already what she's about to say. It just isn't working for her, and Knox has decided he has to be ok with that. Just as Chris is about to elaborate, a car pulls up and somebody wearing sunglasses jumps out of the passenger seat.

    He's back with over double the instruments, all of the inflated ego, and his beret. Charlie always has loved being in the centre of attention, especially when it's Knox's attention.

    "Clearly, the universe hates Richard Cameron. It's not surprising, really. He's always known. The universe is severely lacking in subtly, he's found. But this year. This fucking year. He is being tested."

    Or, Neil comes back as a ghost, and Cameron is the only one who can see him.

    Summary

    Charlie Dalton doesn't need to slip too much money under the table to get Nolan to let him back in through the gates. Honestly, coming back is worth it just to see the look on everybody's faces (especially Cameron's).

    The king having retaken his throne and wearing his crown of (conviently ready for all great occasions) sunglasses, is back to get the Dead Poets Society back on its feet and Todd back with a smile.

    Meeks almost suprises himself with how much he's happy to see Charlie back, and the "yessirs" fall from his lips like Charlie never left. The flirting is casual, exchanged in a few glances, but Meeks seems spurred on by almost losing Charlie once this year already.

    you don't have to say i love you to say i love you

    all i need is you

    "It's the bitch of living!

    welton academy is one of THE most prestigious liberal arts high schools in the entire nation, and a competitive gene runs deep in the blood of its student body. this is proven to be no different when two rival groups of companions go toe to toe for this year's production of 𝘴𝘱𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘸𝘢𝘬𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘯𝘨. except for, well, the fact that this version of the beloved musical is a teeny bit altered - as in even gayer than before. who knew?
