    Summary

    Some introspection by Mikey and an airport reunion.

    A lot of talking and emotional resolution takes place in the parts that I haven't written down so it's free real estate, lol.

    Summary

    “It’s…” Mikey racked his brain for something - anything - to say. His mind had gone blank. He turned around, trying to find some form of inspiration, but all he could see was Nate. Nate. “It’s Nate,” he blurted.

    The grin slipped from Nate’s lips and the shriek that escaped his mother’s lips was so loud that Mikey was glad he’d put the phone on speaker.

    ***

    Mikey hadn't meant to lie, it had just slipped from his lips.

    Summary

    “I can’t go to sleep yet,” Mikey murmured against Nate’s mouth, “I’m not tired.”
     
    Nate knew this couldn’t be true, his and Mikey’s season had just finished and they were both exhausted. Still, Nate knew what Mikey meant when he said he couldn’t go to sleep yet, that he was too wired up, because he felt exactly the same way.
     
    “I think I’ve got a way to make you more relaxed,” Nate said, mouth curving into a smirk as he brushed a hand over Mikey’s cheek. Mikey’s mouth smiled against his own.

    ***

    Nate and Mikey are there for each other when the Devils don't make the playoffs.

    Summary

    When she looks up, Mikey’s looking at her sort of weirdly. Dylan frowns at her. “What?”

    Mikey jumps, then shakes her head as if to clear it. “Nothing. Hey, d’you know what Matty told me the other day?”

    “Which Matty?” Dylan says, pulling herself up to sit cross-legged so she can see Mikey properly.

    “My Matty. Girl Matty.”

    “Oh. What was it?”

    “She said sometimes--” Mikey leans closer, drops her voice “--sometimes her and her friends practice kissing with each other. So they’ll know how to do it right, you know.”

    Summary

    The first thing he does when he gets home is go to the park. He goes, and he sits on the swing that, by all accounts, shouldn’t be able to hold him anymore, but it's somehow just as sturdy as it was when he was young. He says nothing, not for a while, just sits and stares at the grass at his feet.

    “There’s this boy,” he tells the quiet air around him. “He, uh- I like him a lot. God, I-” he rests his head against the rope, right above his hand, and sighs. “I think it’s good this time.”

    It really has - in the past, at least - felt like the forest listens to him, and right now he could really use a response.

    "I love him."

    Summary

    “Yeah,” Nate says, and they just stare at the batch of cookies for a while, until Mikey starts smelling that burnt food smell and he feels nauseous. “I should trash this.”

    “Definitely get rid of it.”

    Summary

    Ice hockey players are a very tall, very weird kind of human being. Louis kind of understands why Harry ended up with one.

    (Or: Willy and Harry are getting married. On an entirely unrelated note, love is in the air.)

    Summary

    "There’s we’re criminals and people are starting to take notice weird, and then there’s the everyday weird.”

    “The everyday weird?” Mikey asks.

    “Yeah,” Ryan shrugs. “The everyday weird.”

    Summary

    It only takes three years, it turns out, to go from a pair of brothers with big dreams to a group that’s just a mix of thirteen teenagers and young adults that can barely even be considered that, all of them with even bigger dreams than any of them started with. It’s not exactly your run of the mill family, but it’s theirs, and the circumstances that brought them all together are hardly the best, but the thing is… Not one of them would change it, no matter how bad things were before.

    Before can’t possibly compare to what lies after.

    Summary

    There are a lot of things that have happened over the past few months that Mikey wouldn't have expected, but here he is, and Nate loves him, and Mikey feels nothing. All those years, the anxious confessions, the lonely ache in his chest, learning it’s requited - poof. Gone. Au revoir, see you later, goodbye.

    It sucks. Nate doesn’t deserve this, fuck Nate doesn’t deserve this at all, and Mikey’s a fucking horrible person.

    Summary

    It really shouldn't have been so surprising, that he ends up right where he is.

    It couldn't be anyone but Matty, really. Not now, not ever. He's pretty okay with that.

    Summary

    "What do you think about Nate?” Mikey asks.

    “He’s hot,” Dylan says and then hiccups. “So hot, dude.”

    “Yeah,” Mikey agrees, trying to stomp down the jealousy rising in him.

    “And I got his number,” Dylan says wagging his eyebrows.

    Summary

    In his experience - which he has a lot of, thank you very much - movies where the main character ends up with their best friend follow a pretty straightforward path. Usually it doesn’t go like this: an evidently unnecessary gay crisis, a dozen or so online personality quizzes, questioning every friendship you’ve ever had, and a weird turn through morse code.

    Summary

    Mikey’s had actual proper capital f Feelings for his childhood friend for at least a year. It really was probably longer, really, but he only actually figured it out around a year or so ago. The thing that made it - still makes it difficult to determine, is their… lack of boundaries, so to speak.

    Regardless, he wasn’t talking or thinking about Dylan’s hands in the way they probably - reasonably - assumed he was.

    They’re soft. His hands are so fucking soft and he wants to hold them and never let go.

    Summary

    The ghost of "this isn't working anymore, Nate," floats around his empty room.

    Don't get him wrong, okay, he still loves Nate, would never ever stop loving Nate. It just isn't possible. The problem is, really, himself. 'It's not you, it's me,' is rather overplayed, he thinks, but sometimes there's truth to it. This is one of those times.

    Summary

    They both are hurting, and he wishes he could have stopped it - could have kept the lovely Mikey he'd always known.

    It all started like this. Well, okay, Nate has no fucking clue how it actually started, he just knows how his knowledge of the situation started.

    Summary

    "What are you doing?" Nate laughs, drawing him out of his thoughts. "See anything interesting?" and he's resting his chin on Mikey's shoulder so he can look out of the window.

    Mikey wonders if there's any part of his life that hasn't been affected by Nate in some way. There has to be, like, obviously there has to be. It doesn't feel like it, though. He's staring out the rain streaked window as the buildings around them fade into the darkness of the quiet dusk, and Nate is right the fuck there.

    Summary

    The only thing worse than prom, he discovers, is watching all of your friends get ready and take pictures, and then scrolling through Instagram to look at all those pictures while they're out having fun. He wouldn't be having fun at prom, and he isn't having fun at home.

    His only friend that isn't there is consequently the only person he'd wanted to spend time with that night anyway, so really it's a mystery as to why he isn't.
